Welcome and a quick update on everything else!


Well it's been a while (yet again!) and I have new followers - hello! They are Peggy who has a lovely blog (pop over and have a look) and Looking Glass Miniatures who has four blogs and all lovely!

Update on the clothes - well what can I say....................I am in between sizes and my waist seems to have gone down faster than anywhere else! In other words skirts now drop down to my good old hips. Managed to buy one denim skirt that has some kind of stretchy fabric built in so at least it won't drop down completely!!! That would be a sight! My Berghaus jacket now fastens completely with lots of room to spare so at least that theory worked a few months ago - buy it and shrink into it!!! Managed to buy a couple of blouses and t-shirts too! A lovely Per Una linen jacket that I purchased at Christmas ('cos it was a bargain!) fits now too!

Still wanting to purchase a small point and shoot camera to go alongside my DSLR but oh what decisions!! I am a Canon girl but quite like the Panasonic Lumix (but the more expensive ones!).

Now for Lake View .................................... nothing to say -sorry! I must get back into it but I think it will probably be after my holiday now. 3 days at work this week and then that's it - off to Scotland to see my Aunts, Uncles, cousins - whoo hoo! Then Aviemore and the Cairngorms (my favourite place !). Having said all this I wanted to buy Lake View because of some houses I saw in the Cairngorm region. I am hoping to find a name for Lake View whilst up there too.

I had this weird and wonderful idea for the roof for Lake View having watched too many hours of Grand Designs and I fancied a copper style roof! Hubs just looked at me - but I think it would look different. I have no idea how we would do it so any suggestions welcome!

Help - no clothes!!!

Just a quick post! As we are going away in a couple of weeks to the Cairngorms I decided to try on some trousers (don't really do trousers unless I have a coat on to hide my enormous backside) Well...............they don't fit! Two pairs have literally fallen off me!!! I cannot believe it.

I am going to need some more money to buy one or two things - I now have such a small wardrobe as nothing fits (in the good sense of course!). I had to clear out lots of clothes last week. I have such a long way to go and cannot believe it! Whoo, hoo!!! Hubs said we will go out next weekend when he is off work for two days to look for some clothes but to be honest I don't even know where to begin!


Now for Lake View - sorry folks whilst I have been lurking around in blogland and making the odd comment I just have not had chance to touch Lake View. I must make more effort but I think while the nights are still light I am doing other things or too tired after work to even contemplate Lake View but my head is still spinning with lots of ideas and I keep watching Grand Designs!!!!

Celebrating 100 years - NOT mine!!!!

Not been around for a while - sorry!!! Not been too good but finally starting to feel so much better. I still haven't time for any mini work and I'm really missing it. Might get chance tomorrow but I very much doubt it.

I am off to get ready as we are off out very early. We are going to a 60th birthday party this evening (early) and tomorrow afternoon from 2.00 pm to late we are off to a 40th - hence the title 'Celebrating 100 years'! Must try not to drink too much!!!

Fake tan is on slowly developing - and I am praying it is not streaky, although knowing my luck it will be!!

I am hoping that at least one person comments on the fact that I have lost weight but I very much doubt it!! I have now lost a total of 31 lbs!!!

Hello - new follower & also change of blog!



I have a new follower and wanted to say hello ! It's Marlene who has two beautiful blogs which are both beautiful and inspirational. If you haven't come across them pop over and have a look!
I decided this morning to try and change my blog. I think it looks fresher and that was just what I needed.

Aarrgh Highway to Hell !

Sorry guys not been around for a while - not been too well and exhausted. Today, we are taking hub's aunt back to Lowestoft - roughly 4 1/2 hour journey each way! ACDC''s song Highway to Hell always reminds me of the journey for some reason!!! We will be setting off in about 1/2 hour. The song was aptly played on Thurdsay morning by Chris Evans on Radio 2 as well just as I was pulling into work - very apt I thought!
Was hoping to have another go at the brick work today on Lake View but there's always next week!
