18th February – I’ve taken a few more photos this week, mostly due to Valentine’s Day.
12th February – Ant got the cine film projector from the loft and we spent the evening watching his old home movies. I have some old home movies as well but we need a super 8 cine projector to be able to watch them. We’re going to see if we can get one from Ebay 🙂
14th February – Valentine’s Day and Ella (9) got a lovely gift from her boyfriend, John. It was so lovely to see them both grinning 🙂
Ant and I decided not to buy cards and presents for each other as we want to save for a holiday on our anniversary but I saw a meal deal at Tesco and had a voucher for £8. I had pork and Ant had steak. We had dauphinoise potatoes, cauliflower cheese and Brussel sprouts. I had a salted caramel brownie dessert and Ant had cheese and crackers. It was delicious, even if it did help contribute to my 5lb gain I had this week!
Ant put the pond back together. We thought it had a leak so it was taken apart before Christmas and left for a few months to see if we could find out where the leak was.
It’s been full for weeks now though without losing any water so Ant put all the rocks in place. It looks lovely again 🙂
February 11th – Owl at HomeSense
This is my version of Project 365. I don’t do very well with Project 365 so I’m doing Project As & When…..a photo as and when I remember to take one!
5th February – Our new shower room is finished. I absolutely love it. It’s so much nicer in there and we’re no longer embarrassed when a visitor asks if they can use the toilet!
6th February – Ella loves the book we got from Vick’s
6th February – Ella
9th February – I took photos of a couple of books Ant needs for his collection so I wouldn’t forget what they are!
10th February – New book display at the charity shop where I volunteer
Yay! January has gone. It’s February 4th and I’m happy that it’s now the second month of the year. January was so dull and boring. The sun is shining today, so much so that it looks like a spring day. The only thing that proves it isn’t is when the door is opened and the cold air rushes in!
I didn’t take many photos this week as we’ve been really busy redecorating the downstairs shower room (before and after post coming soon).
29th January – I found these in Nanny’s garden when we were having a tidy up for her. I haven’t used the macro setting on my camera for months so I brought these home and had a play with the camera.
1st February – I do the weighing at my Slimming World group. It was a cold morning that called for a hot chocolate before weigh in began 🙂
Staying the 1st, I started a new book today. I managed to read 6 books in January so I’m 2 ahead of my challenge to read a book a week this year.
February 2nd – The super wonderful husband and I went to buy wood and fixings for the new shelf unit he’s built for me in the shower room.
Saturday, January 28th – Here are my photos from this week, as and when I remembered to take one!
Sunday 22nd January – Ella wanted curls for school the next day. These curlers were from Ebay and they’re really easy to put in. The curls the next day were excellent.
Monday 23rd January – The super wonderful husband and I went shopping for bathroom paint and wallpaper. I saw this floor lamp in The range and fell in love with it. At £100 it’s a bit pricey. Maybe one day!
Tuesday 24th January – I worked at the charity shop this morning and just had to buy these books!
Wednesday 25th January – I got slimmer of the month at Slimming World after losing 10.5lb in January
Thursday 26th January – I finished my 5th book for my Goodreads challenge
Friday 27th January
The new book display at my local St Barnabas charity shop
Photos from the week
Saturday, January 21st – As you may know, I’m not very good at Project 365. When I missed the second day of January, I knew it didn’t bode well for my project! I’m now doing Project As & When – photos as and when I remembered to take them during the week. :o)

My new mug – I LOVE it!
Saturday 21st January
Watching Lemony Snickett on Netflix with Ella while Kaycee’s away for the weekend at her friend’s house.
I just can’t seem to remember to take a photo a day. I failed again I missed the 12th and the 13th this week so I’ve decided not to pressure myself. Instead of doing Project 365, I’m going to do ‘Project As & When’ – photos as and when I remember to take them!
Chi-Chi – I was supposed to be a family wedding today. I suffered from migraines most of last week and Saturday was no exception. Chi-Chi was supposed to be spending the day on her own until Granddad got back from the wedding but I looked after her instead 🙂
I finally managed to pack away the rest of the Christmas stuff and the mantelpiece looks so boring now. It made me sad.
What I hadn’t noticed in the photo at first, though, because I was looking at the mantel, was the cleavage on show on Coronation Street. The super wonderful husband and a man on Instagram did notice, however, and commented as such! :oD
The super wonderful husband took delivery of his brand new KitchenAid and was very, very pleased with his purchase 🙂
Ella had this bed set on her Amazon wishlist for a while so her brother and his fiancee bought it her for Christmas. She is absolutely delighted with it!
I started reading Gone Girl because I kept hearing how good it was but I have to say, I’m struggling to keep going. I’m about halfway through and it’s been a bit of a slog. I’m going to try and get to the end but I’m not holding out much hope!
