Or so I’m hoping. What’s normal though!? Posting my Sunday Sevens on a Sunday wouldn’t be normal for me!
Well anyway, here’s a final catchup, a sort of extended Sunday Sevens and then I’m hoping to get some order into my
life blog. So without any more waffling on or excuses…..
H had his annual football (soccer) presentation night. It’s a big event and the kids range from 6 to 18. Each year they hire out the Frontier Nightclub in Batley, more famously in the past known as the Batley Variety Club where Shirley Bassey and the Jackson Five and loads of other famous people performed back in the day!
You can tell H was mortified that I’d snook up to take his photo. He won the award for “players’ player”, voted by him fellow team mates. #proudmum!
Topped up the tan wearing my bikini whilst doing the ironing.
Harrison had his birthday. Alfie his cousin made him a birthday cake. (that’s not his cousin in the pic tho!)
Me & my sis’
One of H’s favourite birthday pressies!
These buns tasted as good as they looked! They were in the halfway house for Mr Captain’s day at the golf club.
Essentials packed and ready for our holiday. We never go anywhere without a cricket bat and ball, even if it has to be a plastic one!
This dish was called “Eggs In Purgatory”. 2 poached eggs with tomatoes and chilli. Gorgeous!
The hubby’s tan came along nicely as his freckles joined up.
We called at the local market to pick up provisions. We came away with 3 bags full and only spent about £6.
H’s new nick name is now “Legs”!
We made use of the underwater camera I bought a few years ago, which we normally forget to use.
Heading out on the last night of our holiday.
We went to a buffet just down from where we were staying. It was gorgeous, so many new things to try.
On our last day I pushed the boat out and had this delicious pudding – the yellow was pureed apple.
I didn’t get a wink of sleep on the flight home. Or so I thought until looked through the photos on my phone!
First night home I went on a hen do around Manchester with the girls from work. My feet were killing the next day – 11 hours in heels, ouch! The head faired surprisingly well though.
Straight back onto the healthy eating once I was home. Scrambled egg with king prawns and cherry tomatoes, with spinach thrown in at the last minute.
Although H didn’t make the Yorkshire squad this year they asked him to play in a match at Saltburn-On-Sea. If you’re ever up North on the east coast it’s worth a visit just for the fish and chip shop on the front alone.
We spotted with old World War 2 home made bomb shelter whilst walking back to the cricket club from the beach.
Some family are visiting from America – Here’s H with his cousin now and about 10 years ago – they’re only 4 months apart in age.
I was working this last Saturday and Sunday but managed to watch H play cricket afterwards. Both days had beautiful blue skies, but with a chilly wind, so I watched from behind glass!
The hubby was organised and we had tea in the van whilst watching cricket on Sunday, and had a real treat of berries and cream for afters!
………..Sunday Sevens is the brain child of Natalie from Threads and Bobbins. If you’d like to link up with her too you can – it’s easy! Just share 7 ish photo’s from your week that don’t necessarily warrant a blog post of their own.
Cheerio for now x
