Happy Days Linky, Another Week Flies By

Another week has passed, and here I am writing another Happy Days Linky post. I can-not believe we are almost in March. But I suppose the positive of that is the nights are getting lighter, this is such a relief as I can now walk Toby in daylight rather than in the dark with a torch, which is pretty scary. I am so looking forward to hot summers days, and being able to use the garden again.

Out & About

Mmm well we have tried to get out an about, we had planned to visit Cocky Trail on Sunday, the weather wasn’t great but our two don’t mind a bit of mud so we were hopeful. Then just as we almost got there the snow started. Not just snow it was almost blizzard conditions. We decided to head home, as our home is in a pretty remote place so we knew if it got much worse we would struggle getting home.

So we turned around a set of back home, the conditions were terrible on the motorway the snow was so heavy. I must say I was very relieved to arrive safely home. Clearly Crocky Trail was not meant to be on that day.

Chris and I also went out last night for a lovely meal to a new local restaurant; it was lovely as we haven’t been out on our own for ages. Mind you Jack had other plans and the sneaky monkey had talked Grandma and Granddad into taking him and Joe to the very same restaurant.  Grandma had no idea were going so innocently booked.

Fortunately they dined an hour before us, so we said hello on the way in a sat and enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar, and then they left. It felt a little weird not being sat with them; I suppose we should be flattered that the boys love us so much they want to stalk us. But am surprised at how crafty my beloved oldest son can be.

Fun at Home

Well once safely home, we had a lovely chilled family afternoon so all was not lost. Sometimes it is lovely just to sit by the fire with a glass of wine, watching a family movie. I love family afternoons they are so special.

Time for Me

This would be meeting up with some of my lovely Blog Friends, we had such a lovely time, chatting and sharing blogging tips and the lovely Kate ran a blog clinic and helped us out with a few technical issues. Thanks Kate you are my hero.

friendsMy happiest moment

Thursday morning was my blog first birthday; I was so excited it felt like my real birthday. I can’t believe I made it to 1. It has been the most incredible year. I feel so lucky for all the amazing opportunities we have received. It just shows that life is what you make it. And every day I am thankful I plucked up the courage to finally start my blog.

Next week I would like too…..

Exciting times I have been pondering over my blog header for ages, do I change it? Don’t I? I was having this very conversation with my lovely friend Simone an art teacher at work, who suggested one of her students could help me.

She introduced me to Georgia and showed me her work, which is incredible, I have told her my ideas, which she has gone away to work on. So hopefully soon I may have a little peek soon. Although I have told Georgia no rush, as she has got coursework to complete too. I am very excited to see what she comes up with.
