This week has whizzed by, mainly
spent clearing up after the festivities
but here are the special bits that made
it all better.
We really enjoyed spending the day at
Karen's, (Missy K - Grant's sister)
birthday family get together.
I'm not going to reveal how many candles
were on the cake (and there WAS cake!!),
but I will just say that it was a
|(Grant, John and Barb, and the Birthday Girl |
with her alternative crown!)
I was happy that Grant and Luke
enjoyed Spamalot - I bought them tickets for
New Year's Day as part of their
Grant and I are enjoying our
Christmas present to each other....
...a Tassimo coffee machine.
We both LOVE coffee and, as Costa coffee
customers, we were offered one at a fraction
of the rrp. It really is as easy as pressing a
button and the coffee is as hot and strong as
in the shops (and you can even buy Costa
coffee discs to use in it, win:win!).
I so enjoyed a Skype chat with my
Mail Art swap buddy, Jewels.
The funny thing is, although it was the
first time we had actually spoken to each
other, because I've known her for a while
in Blogland etc, it was just like talking to a
friend who I've known for a long time and
didn't seem strange at all - just fun!
We had both made sure we were clean,
dressed and respectable for the conversation
but I'm planning on catching her in her pj's
sometime soon ;D
I got a couple of cd's for £1 each in a charity
shop and they've been perfect to listen to,
with the volume turned up full,
while I cleared up the Christmas decorations
(why does that job take SO LONG??!!).
I've booked tickets for all four of us to see
We are all MASSIVE fans of Les Miserables
and have seen it a few times on the stage in
London's West End
(Grant got us tickets for our first date, clever boy!),
and we can hardly wait for the film.
We watched a behind the scenes documentary
on the tv, and it looks absolutely amazing!!!
We will have to wait a week after the film opens
due to Grant's work commitments and Hope's
mock GCSE exams but I'm sure the
wait will be worth it.
who has been SO smelly recently we thought
the drains had blocked again.
But no, after an hour checking, we had to
come to the conclusion that it was our
dear old canine friend ;)
Just as well we love her, eh?!
who is also now 16 years old.
And. Such. A. Madam.
Just as well we love her too, hmmmmm!
slogging away with subject revision
prior to her mock GCSE exams.
It's not much fun :(
Last but not least, my darling Grant,
who holds everything together and loves me,
"Just as I am"
(can you tell we watched Bridget Jones' Diary
on New Year's Eve?!).
(no apologies for gratuitous Colin Firth moment!)
Thank you for soldiering on to the end of this
post and please please please leave a comment,
I LOVE comments :)
Wishing you all a great weekend!!
