Photo Challenge – January 25th – A day late!

Photo prompts from Fat Mum Slim
January 18th – Happy place = Chocolate!
January 19th – Breakfast slimming world style 🙂 Herby tomatoes on toast with onions and peppers, topped with cheese. Lots of fruit and a creamy vanilla and chocolate sprinkles yogurt.
January 20th – To do list
January 21st – Blue – The previous owner left us this bottle of wine to welcome us to our new home 🙂
January 22nd – Nice – I fell in love with this wallpaper in B&Q but not with the price so we’re looking round for a similar design that’s more purse friendly!
January 23rd – Bedtime – trying to catch up with everything in the evening after being at the house decorating all day means I’ve been getting to bed late.
January 24th – Your space – my blog is my space 🙂
January 25th – A taste of summer/winter – We’ve not really had a winter here, in fact, we’ve only had a few days here and there that have been as cold as you’d expect for this time of year. Usually I’d be sad that we’ve not had snow but I’m happy about it this year because trying to move house in the snow must be a nightmare!

    That tomatoey cheesy bread has made me hungry. It has inspired me to make something similar for lunch. YUM!

    Is that last pic of an enormous garden the new house? We are hopefully moving in the coming weeks, and leaving our new owners a bottle of something seems like a lovely idea xxx

      Yes the garden is at the new house 😀 I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it on the estate agent's website!
      It was a really lovely surprise to find the wine and a little note left for us when we got the keys last week. He wished us well and hoped we'd be as happy there with our family as he'd been with his. It was very touching. I'd definitely do the same if we were ever to move

    hope you're settling in well to your new place!
    your first couple of pics are making me hungry!

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:25 pm

      Thank you. We've got another couple of weeks before we actually move in as we want to get it all decorated while it's empty 🙂

  4. Aly 26th January 2014 at 10:29 pm

    Ooooh! How exciting! Good luck on decorating on the rest of the house.

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:23 pm

    Looks like you have been VERY busy – thank you for sharing 🙂

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:20 pm

      I don't think I've ever worked so hard, even when I actually went out to work!! 😀

    Congrats on your new house, a lot of companies do wall paper on line its the same stuff at half the price.

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:19 pm

      Thanks Jaime 😀 We got the keys last week 😀 It's been a hard week what with all the work but we're getting there and in a few short weeks we'll be settling in!

  11. Kate Thompson 26th January 2014 at 2:18 pm

    I agree with Vai! Just read your strap line and smiled – I have four children, two stepchildren and am about to gain a grandchild. Keeps us busy, eh?

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:17 pm

      Oh yes, busy in the best possible way 😀 xx

  12. Vai Chin 26th January 2014 at 12:56 pm

    I like your happy place. Looks rather similar to mine 😀

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:16 pm

      My waistline would be smaller if chocolate didn't make me so happy! 😀

  13. Keri-Anne 26th January 2014 at 10:43 am

    I often find myself up at the same time at night trying to finish everything too ha! Glad i am not the only one x

    1. shelllouise 26th January 2014 at 11:15 pm

      I really need to get an early soon. All this work is tiring me out to the point of exhaustion. I nearly fell asleep while the girls were brushing their teeth tonight!

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
