#SundaySevens 99

Hi Folks!

Here we are with another Sunday Sevens Double Bill, and looking back over the last 2 weeks and beyond it’s no wonder I’m not making any new garments!  I still love taking the pics and sharing them with you, and also looking back over my old posts too.  It’s so easy to forget all the good stuff that happens in life so it’s a good way of keep a little photo diary of the little things, and the big things too.

The week didn’t start off 2 good.  I fell on the steps in the gym, landing on my side. I managed to keep hold of my purse, water bottle and phone, but hit every step until I landed at the bottom.  the rest of the day (after I went to my intended class!) was spent in my PJs feeling very sore and sorry for myself.

Sue and I ready in our team strips to play in the A team.

We played at Bradley Hall Golf Club.  The weather was so miserable but the scenery was stunning.

And the meal afterwards was too!

We finally booked out June holiday.  Initially I thought it might clash with Sew Up North but it doesn’t so now I’m really chuffed I can make it.  Is anyone else heading there too?

A fiery sky to the left of our garden and a rainbow to the right.  I used the pano function on the Iphone to try and capture both on one photo.

Lunch on the go – I’ve still been committed and organised in my dieting.

I took part in the Forget Me Not Trust colour run.  The hubby’s work were sponsoring one of the paint stations.  Here he is in action!

Glad that little lot just missed me!

There was a lot that didn’t miss me though!

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 20

Other outdoor activities have picked up too now the weather’s improving.  We cycled 22 miles on our bikes, my bottom was killing the next day!

Nearly 15 and still H couldn’t wait to get his shoes off when he spotted a bouncy castle at the cricket club!

A civilised lunch watching cricket, all brought from home including the condiments!

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 17

Persevering with the gin and tonics – I can have roughly 3 for 1 large wine so it’s a no brainer really!

Helen and I are representing the club in a pair knockout and won our first match.  Luckily we had a home draw.  We’re playing Hollins Hall away this Sunday so fingers crossed out winning streak will continue.

I hope H one day will grow out of dropping his pants anyway!

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 14

At our ladies comp last week i texted Sue and Helen the night before and suggested we wear our brightest colours so we didn’t get lost on the course!

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 13

I managed 3 games last week, and after the 3rd one (when I won my singles knockout) I celebrated with my favourite lunch.  I was still a pound to target in my slimming world journey but I really felt I needed this, more so as I was heading straight to work for a 10 hour shift.

My partner in crime again, we fit in body pump whenever we can!

Dining alfresco on my lonesome.  Since we bought our new furniture we’ve not had much chance to use it 😦

A trim…..

Shrinking more clothes……..taking in my favourite denim skirt….

Rain…… didn’t the heavens open on Saturday!!??  I went out to take this picture and spotted I’d left my windows open!  So I had a soggy bottom until it dried out!

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 6

Stood by on Albert Promenade overlooking Happy Valley.  My job’s got to be the best job in the world on days like this.

I’ve set to my Moneta with the scissors.  At the minute I’m wearing it as a top but am thinking of turning it into a maxi dress with wonky stripes.

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 3

Still one of my favourite lunches – a 12 egg omelette….

#sundaysevens #thimberlina 2

Some for now and some for later at work……

And finally, guess what!! I reached my target at Slimming World!!  I actually lost and extra 1/2 pound and am totally over the moon, and would recommend Slimming World to anyone who want to loose a few pounds.  I’m still going to attend the classes as they’re really good fun and they’ll help keep me on track!

    Well done in reaching your target. Looks like you’ve had a fun week. I’m going to Sew Up North. It will be my first blogger meet up.

  2. Well done on reaching your target – the best reason in the world to acquire some new clothes.
    I like the idea of swapping one glass of wine for three glasses of gin and tonic. If only I liked gin. Would it work for vodka and orange? 😉

  3. Great photos as usual. Well done on the weight loss. Good luck at golf. Ouch to the first photo 🤕 K xXx

  4. Congratulations!! You’ve done so well.

    I’ve been waiting to see that bruise – pretty impressive. That must have really hurt!

  5. Wow – congratulations on your SW success! Your pictures are making me miss Yorkshire…

  6. Well done on hitting your target. Looking great especially the haircut😃 I knew there was a reason to drink g&t!!
