Lovely tea

Before that I went and flied my kite in the park near us which was lovely :) and I got some conkers and posted one to Leah, was gonna ask Leah to come fly a kite but she was out, she has a busy social life. Got a tie down for awning for holiday just incase it is windy again!

Looking forward to the weekend, going to see Dylan, Leah's horse we sponsored at christmas.

bradgate park

oooo it's been years since i been there but today Ellie, Sarah, Shannoooooooooooon and I set off to Leicester (after stopping for snacks at ASDA). We would have taken Megs but she would have been tired out before she even got there!
We went up a hill, then down it, then up a little hill then played a bit ( Ellie read now magazine) saw 3 deer in the distance running and went home, was fab :)

Before that I went to old arley to pick up the new porch awning that i won off ebay and I just finished putting it up and taking it down, it is I feel perfect. We try it out in Oxfordshire in a few weeks.

What a grand day, photos will follow :)

sunday of the bank holiday

...was yesterday :)
I went to Ellie's for weetabix :) found it slightly difficult to get a word in edgeways as Megan was in a chatty mood!
Then home, off out for a meal with Mu, Pete and Joy (Boogie). Food not bad and lovely spot outside under a oak tree, acorns included :)
Back home and pottered outside for a bit, clean out the animals :( and ordered my birthday present from Laine off the internet. Then we bike to the hospital so that Laine knows where she gotta go for her jabs on Tuesday.
Watched a ouple of episodes of QI and then to bed.
Feel like the day was certainly not wasted :)

the friday before bank holiday

I love bank holidays, there like a gift, I do nothing to earn it yet I get one and sometimes 2 days off just to well errrm slob. Not that I do always slob, they are a good time to DIY and such.

This week I am knackered works been really busy and with it being the first week after ahls my stamina was not quite up to scratch

I just made myself a tiger bread and pork sandwich, I love tiger bread particularly when it's fresh, I very much like the name of it as well.

I got the plasterboard for the hall, just need Ian now to put them up, the hall was always the thing that I though I was gonna have to pay someone to do cos it tricky but it's going okay at the moment, taking awhile but going okay.

Now for the rest of the evening I shall be having a few peanut m and m's, I bought myself a big bag for 85p, the joys of work and having a fast metabilisum (I know that's spelt wrong!)
