This And That....A Catch Up!...

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

I just thought I would try and have a little catch up this month....there has been so much going on my head is spinning...

I'm now back at work full time...and don't I know it but deep down I love my job....I must do I've done it for nearly 30 years....'Boy Oh Boy' am I really that old....When did that happen....!!!

Anyway...

First up was my lovely, brand new car....

I love this colour....isn't she beautiful?...


I know it's not the best photo but I'm sure there will opportunity for more....like all the days out that I have planned for the summer....

My old car....which I'd had for 11 years has now been passed on to my daughter....


I have to say that the daisy and butterfly stickers have now gone (this was done for her Prom)....but they did stay for a few years....needless to say my lovely partner and our mechanic had no choice but to be brave when forced to drive it around town...Bless them!!!

A new addition to the family....

Say 'Hello' to Alfie....


This is my partner's parents new puppy....now how cute is he then!!!

While cleaning out my craftroom drawers, I found this cute little album that my friend, Liz had made for me some time ago. I never got round to completing it....although I have kept it wrapped up in tissue paper and tucked safely away....


As some of my followers know I lost my lovely faithful champion and constant shadow recently......and I think it is the right time now to try and finish this little album...

'Bertie' 


I've been trying to get in the garden when I can but I'm not sure what the weather is doing right now, one minute rain, then hail then glorious Spring sunshine.....on one wet/sunny day I  did manage to capture this beautiful rainbow through of my craft room window...


Perfect...
....the rainbow not my dreadful attempts at photography that is.

I have bought more wool....did I need it...'No'. Did I want it...'Yes'....I have read another book, so I am up to date with my Goodreads reading challenge.....

I have knitted and cross stitched, tried to do some colouring and looked over the crocheting thing....still not getting the hang of that I afraid. I have baked.....banana loaves and our favourite honey cake. I have perfected the Yorkshire Pudding....it has taken me long enough!!!!...No photo, I was too busy admiring them to think about a photo...next time. 

I have been busy with plans for weddings, 21st birthdays, 50th Wedding Anniversaries (more about these later) and have tickets for my beloved rugby union to see England v Argentina at Twickenham later in the year and I have taken part in two lovely swaps....

Spring 2016 Tea Cup Exchange


Stationery Swap 2016
 


as well as writing and receiving lovely letters in the post.....

All in all it has been a busy month but a very good month and I'm still losing weight....Yeah!!!


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy your Sunday.
