What a week it’s been! Last night I had the best night’s sleep I’ve had in ages. I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve something on my mind, or when I’m planning something, my mind plays tricks on me and I have the weirdest of dreams. When I was at training school (almost 20 years ago) studying to be a paramedic they fed us well. I dreamt I got so fat my (small) tattoo grew so big is spread and covered the whole of my body!!
So you can imagine what I’ve been like this week with the Spoolettes meet up going round my head! I wouldn’t mind if I was a worrier. I’m not when I’m awake. But it’s crazy what our subconscious minds gets up to behind our backs!
Anyway, apart from having an amazing Saturday! The best ever!! I did have a few other moments this week worthy of a photograph, so here we are, my Sunday Sevens as thought up by the lovely Natalie over at Threads and Bobbins…..
1 Not the best start to the working week – 2 hours late off after already working a 12 hour shift. A slice of birthday cake and a large baileys eased me back into a relaxed state!
2 Cyber mom I imagine isn’t going to be too pleased with this photo but as it’s quite a significant part of our family history it has to be included – sorry mum! Mum’s had a new knee. Well half a one. They call it a partial knee replacement as it’s not quite totally knackered, only a bit. Watch this space. She’ll be doing the couch to 5k in no time at all! She’ll also be able to drive in 6 weeks, which will be a bloody miracle as she can’t now!
3 We’ve had some foul weather as usual this week but we’ve also had blue sky! I had to pull over to take this so I could share the view. (the broken white line isn’t the middle of the road btw, it’s the edge – it looks like i’ve just abandoned my car!). It was taken near Scapegoat Hill, only 5 miles out of Huddersfield town centre but it really is in the middle of nowhere!
4 Another gorgeous view to share. This is the first time I’ve ever been here though I’ve driven past it 100s of times. Since Elland Bridge was damaged during the Boxing Day floods I needed to find somewhere else to stand by as there’s no point parking up next to a closed road bridge! This is only 200m from the main road between Huddersfield and Halifax but a true hidden gem. I think this will be one of my favourite spots to stand by in the summer!
5 You might think I’ve gone a bit crazy posting a photo of a fuel pump, especially if you’re outside the UK, but it’s donkeys years since fuel has been below £1 a litre. It used to cost me £70 to fit my car! I’ll show this photo to my grandkids in years to come!!
6 My Jungle January parcel arrived from America with a £12.97 customs charge!! Has this happened to anyone else before!? I really feel like complaining to someone as Katherine had ticked it was a gift so I was a bit baffled! Hopefully I’ll make a belated jungle january garment – H is fancying a shortie-onesie! I might even have enough fabric for us to have matching!!
7 As soon as I got in from the Spoolette’s meet up I got stuck into writing my blog post. I totally lost track of time and the hubby brought me up a pasta bake. I didn’t have the heart to tell him I’d had scampi and chips in the pub!
8 Footie was on this morning and it was my turn to do the tuck shop and sell raffle tickets. Luckily we share it out and only have to do it once or twice a season. It was freeeeezing! They won 7-1 so the 2 hour thaw-out afterwards was worth it. H plays in goal and conceded a penalty but was fearless and had a great game! H has just looked over my should and stated “you cud’ve looked a bit more lively in that photo!” I assure you I couldn’t!!
Feature photo: very cute earrings – a pressies from the lovely Karen at Wakey Makes! I love them thankyou!! If you click on her name you can see her lovely fabric on her IG page!
So that’s another week gone and we’re into February already! I managed only one run this week, but with the nights starting to get lighter there should be more opportunities to get out there. Also I had some fab new this week. I’ll be on 10 hour shifts in April instead of 12!! Yippee! I’ll have to work an extra day every other week but I’ll have a bit more time for me and the family on work days.
So until next time, cheerio!
