I’m wondering should I mention my absence and apologise for it? Or do I just crack on and bombard you with lots of photos of some of my goings on over the last few weeks? Yea, I think I’ll just do that.
I picked up a leather skirt from a charity shop, it was either £5 or £10. It needed shortening and taking in at the hips – I forgot I had done this, I must dig it out of the wardrobe!
My birthday lunch back in October!
Cyber mum….not looking to impressed but looking very slim!
Girlie night out – the same place I went for my birthday but it’s totally different on a Friday night, when there is usually a band on. The food is always great – here’s the link if you live over this way and fancy going – Jeremy’s at The Boathouse
More eating out! Not wonder I’ve put on 1/2 stone (or more!) since I reached my target back in May last year! This time for my sister’s birthday.
Magnetic signs for above patient’s bed – I think I should have this permenantly stuck over my mouth!
A rare sunny day for H and I to practice our putting.
Proper Yorkshire puddings!
Fell in love with these boots I found in TKMaxx
Catching up with the cricket mums – this has reminded me that another one is now overdue!
Another birthday meal out. This time with my lovely niece Lucy is is now 20!! OMG, saying that makes me feel really old! Do you remember the post about Lucy’s Lace when she borrowed my sewing machine for her GCSE textile project.
As usual I found it
difficult impossible to resist a pudding!
I picked this up in a charity shop. It’s destined for a refashion but still in the to do pile.
Family photo – is H growing or are we shrinking?!
H being in touch with his feminine side – swapping coats with his (now ex) girlfriend.
Me and my bestie all ready for a night out. Yes it was fancy dress, honest.
Cyber pops turnbed 70 back in November and we had a few days away in Whitby. My room was in the attic of an old house. There was no wardrobe but instead this gorgeous hangers on a coat stand.
My big brother who I don’t see too often as he lives down south.
Family photo – it took quite a few attempts with the self timer before we got a half decent one!
Our ladies golf team at the presentation night – we won the team championships back in April 2017 but the presentation is always later in the year.
Every year we have a golf comp where we all dress up and play golf. Unfortunately Sue and I got the date wrong and turned up dressed like this a week early! Oops! We still played in our costumes, and everyone had a laugh at our expense!
Works Christmas do! These are some of the crazy bunch who respond to your emergency calls! We certainly know how to let our hair down!
A little more sedate…..an overnight spa break at the Titanic Spa in Huddersfield. I would recommend this place whole heartedly!
The apartments which you stay in have balconies with stunning views.
And there’s a fab menu with gorgeous puddings!
A Chick flick night in our apartment finished off a fabulous day.
Me at work!
New Years Even celebrations…
Eating out at the Alchemist in Leeds…. this looked amazing and tasted just as good.
Our local ducks having a skate instead of a swim.
Still trying to eat healthy and H photobombing.
I’m in the middle of buying my own house!! At 46 I kinda feel all grown up as I’ve never done it on my own.
The house has a loft conversion! Errmm…. I wonder what this room will be!
I saw this crazy lamp in Debenhams and was tempted to buy it but it was £100! I’ll watch out for it in the sales.
I popped into Fabricate when they celebrated their first birthday and bought this little gem of a pattern. I was hoping it spurs me on to dust off my sewing machine but it’s not worked yet.
Cyber mom celebrated her birthday last month…
And I’ve gotten back into photography, and had a go at taking pics of birds. This was the best from about 500 i took in a day!
H was measured at a friends house. He is officially the tallest person they have had in their home. Currently 6ft 3 in his stocking feet and not 16 until June!
Lunch at Salts Mill in Shipley – they always, always have lilies and they smell devine.
On the hook – I bought some variegated wool – each ball makes a 14 inch granny square – I’m hoping to make a big blanket for my spare room for when any of my lovely sewing buddies want to come and stay over!
H looks even taller next to the mini trollies at IKEA!
I found a cafe in Newark that serves tea in the most stunning china …some of which is for sale.
I snaffled this bargain on ebay for my new house – only £26 and I managed to somehow get it in my modestly sized car!
I’m still eating egg and chips! Not quite as often as I used to, but more than I should.
Road trip with the cyber parents!
And lastly, this popped up on my Facebook feed…………love it!!
Sunday Sevens – nothing like what I’ve just done – it’s usually a weekly blog post of 7 ish pics from your week. It started a long time ago by Natalie at Threads and Bobbins and it’s now followed and joined in by many.
And now after going back and reading Natalies blog she too is playing catch up too so I don’t feel so bad, and am going to follow her suit and pinch her title for 2018. Wanting to join in too? Go one….it’s great to see what happens in other peoples lives in different corners of the world.
