Sunday Sevens Centenary Catch Up

I’ve only gone and missed a whole months blogging, and missed my 100th Sunday Sevens post!

So here’s a catch up of what I got up to in June……

You might remember I hit my Slimming World Target at the end of May.  As a result I went through all my clothes, (yes all!!), some went to my sister, some were put into a pile to adjust to fit and some were put back into action!

Here’s my favourite ever RTW frock from 9 years ago that I can now wear again!!  I was so excited to finally be able to zip this up!!

We’re off the Ripon races towards the end of July and usually I make a new dress but I don’t think I will this year!

A night out to see Take That in Sheffield…. an amazing night and more like a show that a concert.

I have no idea why I took this photo and why i’m looking so happy to be at work, but it was in my phone so I thought I’d share it with you!

My peony flowered and was stunning, but I just wish the flowers would last longer.

Mini breakfasts – these are made with an oat base, chocolate flavoured quark and topped with fruit.  We had a food tasting session at slimming world where everyone took in different things to try.

Helen and I played in the first round of the Evening League Foursomes and won!  (foursomes for those who don’t know golf means we play with just one ball and take it in turns at hitting it!).

One morning I looked at H and I’m sure he grew 3 inches over night!!

Helen (my golf buddy) gave me a faux leather jacket, I’m not sure how it’ll end up – this was before I chopped the sleeves off!

Mr Captains Day at the club was like playing winter golf!  I managed to put a decent score together on the day and only went and won!!

Back home after the meal for dessert!  The square plates are dinner plates but the puddings are so huge it makes them look like side plates!

Wendy from @wendiwooknits was at the same cricket match as me – H hubby was umpiring H’s game so I took my crochet and we had a good natter.

Early morning bike ride with the hubby – 22 miles… the longest I’ve done in years!

More crochet at another cricket match, but unfortunately no Wendy at this one.

And of course I loved all the food too!  So much so that I put on 7 pounds in a week!  Luckily it came off when I got ‘back on plan’ when I returned home.

H and I played golf but unfortunately we lost in the first round of the mixed knock out.

Dressed for the school run, matching shoes and PJs!  I was driving not walking!

Watchout …………shoe porn!  I just need the fabric now to go with these beauties!

I sew and play golf. I blog about my sewing as I don't think you'd want to read about my golf. It's bad enough watching it on telly! Contact me via email -


  1. Your happiness and joy in life shines through every picture in this post. And certainly you don’t need a new frock for the races you look stunning.

  2. What a lovely catch-up post! I really miss Sunday Sevens… So first of all, that dotted dress is absolutely amazing. You’ll get lots of wear from it. You H is growing like a weed, isn’t he. Love the pics from Turkey, the most handsome George, and I’m quite smitten with those pink shoes and pink paisley pants!

    • The pink shoes are my favourites. The pair that you rush you’d have bought 2 of!
      I wish I could hAve something of what’s making H shoot up! I keep wondering just how tall he’s going to get!!! 🙈

  3. Ali, that polka dot dress looks amazing on you! No wonder that you kept it for nine years!

    • Thsnks Rita! I was hoping to wear it a couple of days ago but it was a bit tight, hopefully I’ll loose a couple of pounds so I can wear it to the races next week. After all this time I’m desperate to wear it again!

  4. Love the photo of you and hubby at H’s birthday – such a happy picture! New hair do, new slimmer you, wow! Well done on the golf….and commiserations on the golf, lol. Surely H has to stop growing soon?
