Hello and Happy Easter!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week! We’ve had some good news – the plans have been pleased for our house extension, so now all we have to do is find a builder!
I’ve just enjoyed a late breakfast of coffee and chocolate before heading off to work. With a bit of luck your Easter Sunday will be more nutritious and you’ll have time to spend with your loved ones.
Natalie from Threads and Bobbins thought up the Sunday Sevens as a way of posting snippets of your week that maybe wouldn’t warrant a blog post all on their own. As usual for me there’s one or two foodie photos!
I really can’t help proper laughing every time I see this photo. It was taken last Sunday evening whilst waiting to go into the hotel restaurant for dinner. I asked the hubby to take my photo, which he obviously did. We were sat in a beautiful quiet room with huge high ceilings. As he took the photo the anti red eye flash appeared to light up the whole room and hubby’s camera then snapped a photo of my look of horror and embarrassment! I wasn’t expecting the flash to be on 😳
My starter – Spinach soup served with a poached egg, salmon and under the salmon there were 2 slices of sautéed potatoes. It really was the best soup I’ve ever had!
The next morning my Northumbrian breakfast. From the bottom – eggy bread, sausage, black pudding and caramelised Apple. I also ate 2 slices of toast and 4 Danish pastries!
Out on the course the Greenkeeper had his dog working with him!
Still smiling despite the hubby beating me 2 days running!
I played in my Styl arc misty jeans which were really comfy. As there not really denim jeans they’re OK to play in – proper jeans on the golf course are a big no no!
Back home and back to my sewing machine. I think Rory missed me, he doesn’t usually try and sit on my overlocker
I’ve had this chocolate quite a while (weeks not months!). Del sent me it so I could try some American chocolate. I’d heard bad reports but was pleasantly surpised and enjoyed all three. H drew a chart and we all tried each one and put them in order of preference . We all had the same answer….. 1. Ghirardelli, 2. The Organic and 3. Hershey’s. Without look back at what Del told me about each one I’m not sure if that’s the order of best to not as best chocolate. I can’t say worst as I really liked them all, but not as much as a Galaxy bar from back home!
I’ve managed to get out twice this week running. I did 5 1/2 km but had 1 minute walking after every 5 minutes running as I’m not quite as fit as I was. I always pass this house with the fancy privets but am normally running, but as I was walking for a minute I could snap a quick photo.
Yesterday we had a lovely lunch at Jeremy’s in Brighouse before I started work.
Family selfie at Jeremy’s… My lip smacking new top having its’ first outing.
Last night I came across a new family of chicks, how cute are these!
So another week and another Sunday Sevens showing what I’ve been up to. If you want to join in too head over to Natalie’s blog and see how you can join in too.
