Me on a Monday




After a very emotional week is was definitely time for the weekend which included fireworks, scrapbooking, chilling out in the warm home while the rain lashed down down and a little bit of a celebration...

It was a head up to the local fireworks display kind of Friday eve.  It didn't disappoint!


It was a spend the day scrapooking at the Haslington Crop as Tony had gone away with some of the other hubbies in our group.  2 almost finished pages and another one started...


It was a relaxing Saturday evening with a glass of wine and Strictly...

Then it was a get the food shop done kind of Sunday morning where these beautiful poppies were spotted outside ASDA....


It was a try a friend's recipe and home made, delicious nachos for lunch kind of day...


It was a nice to have hubby home kind of Sunday afternoon and he cooked a roast chicken while I ran the kids to their gradings.  There was success all round with a purple belt for Alex and....a black belt finally achieved for Josh!  He's worked really hard for this and will now get to help out and teach the younger ones.


Then it was a Strictly result watching evening and the last episode of Downton (I may have cried!) But I'm doing a little dance as I managed to book tickets to visit Highlere Castle (Downton in real life) next March with my parents and Alex.  we are having afternoon tea too so a real treat. I'm just a tad excited!!!

This Monday finds me shattered from being back at Brownies (I've had the last 3 weeks off) and a very busy day at work.  But it's a new regime here and everyone is mucking in with the jobs while Tony works away so a good start to the week :)

Have good weeks all you Me on a Monday-ers and waves to Sian for this fabulous meme.

Ooh, those nachos look good. It was roast chicken cooked by the husband here too. Congratulations to Josh, that's quite an achievement.

Wow! Well done to the pair of them! A black belt is quite an achievement. It sounds like a weekend of eating well, with a bit of well deserved fun in there too. Best of luck with your week on the new regime
