Well, I haven’t got involved in this linky for quite a few weeks as we’ve had quite a busy few weeks plus some ups & downs over the past few weeks.
While having to sit at the hospital for almost 3 hours, I luckily took my kindle with me to read. I had downloaded a book called “The Boss’s Son which is an office romance and so far is very good and makes me not want to put it down.
Before Christmas, we received some very exciting news, my fiancé & I were having our first baby. It was a big shock as we were due to get married in July this year but we have managed to postpone it and move it to the end of the year
The last few weeks it has grown colder each day and been generally a miserable and then Thursday afternoon & Friday it started snowing very lightly, we even woke up to a dusting of snow on Friday morning but it sadly didn’t last very long and by late morning it had disappeared.
Mainly dresses with tights as I can’t fit into my trousers anymore, I’m coming up to my half way mark of 20 weeks currently at 16 weeks so I think I will definitely be needing some new clothes very soon but I did buy myself a new top when I was out with my friend the other weekend and it was in the January Sales too.
Well, this we have done pretty well more so more than ever with food, we have been trying to eat fairly healthy but there hasn’t been any fancy flashy food made, but for a change, the OH has been taking over and helping out in the kitchen which has been amazing. The best meal had to be a warm steak salad, it really was delicious. I wish I had taken a picture. And Lastly
Say hello to baby Cooper bump at 15 weeks, starting to feel real now.
What have you been up to?
Over the last few weeks it has been miserable, cold and wet so has been hard to get out and walk the dog and like most females she doesn’t like going out in the rain incase her hair gets wet. Sunday had been dry so we jumped in the car early afternoon and drove to Elmdon park so Carly could have a run around and burn off some steam.
She was transfixed by all the ducks and birds in the pond and wouldn’t move away and kept trying to jump in with them.
The other night while I sat and ate my dinner, I happened to look up and see the most beautiful stunning sky/sunset I have seen in a while, it was lit up in the most gorgeous colours, I jumped up, grabbed my phone and captured it instantly.
Ever since we moved into our home 2 years ago we have lived with horrible green,faded and worn fences. So we decided to take the plunge and paint them a lovely warm harvest oak colour. It has made the garden so much brighter and bigger too. We love it!
A few weeks ago now we went to North Wales for the weekend to see my fiance’s parents while they were on holiday. We took our dog Carly as she had never been to the beach/Sea before and we weren’t sure what she would be like. As you can see she absolutely loved the sea, so much so that on occasions we couldn’t get her out of it. She was one happy doggy in the sea.
On bank holiday Monday the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining so the in-laws and ourselves decided to head out to Cannock chase with the dogs. We have been there once before and it is a place I can’t get enough of.
This is the 3 of us, my fiance, my dog and I by the lake at Cannock Chase. This is a very rare occasion to catch up all together in a photo.
Hello there my little cherubs, Hope you are all well and had a good week? Apologise this is a little late too but been a crazy week at my new job.
Last Saturday me, my fiance Tom, my mum and dad all headed over to Cirencester to watch one of my cousins get married. It was a beautiful service at the church then went back over to my aunt and uncles house for the after party where they did afternoon tea and a ‘cook your own’ BBQ on the evening. Despite the rain it was a great day and night had by all and was lovely to catch up with all our family again.
Nothing new or different this week, except smarter clothes for my new job I started on Monday at Cushman & Wakefield.
My new job work contract and paperwork which I was required to sign and send back.
A thunderstorm, came from no where as one minute it was hot and sunny the next it was dark, raining and thundering and last pretty much the rest of the afternoon into the evening.
Well I tried something new this week, Chicken Tikka Burgers, they were delicious too. I saw them while I was food shopping and thought they would be something different for a change. I added in bacon, cheese and fried onions.
I have started my new job this Monday at Cushman & Wakefield as an AP Clerk (Accounts Payable). I love it, the people are lovely the firm is lovely.
Hope all you lovely people have had a great week too
My nephew loves helping out with everything, whether it be DIY in the house, passing tools, doing gardening or building furnitures you will always find him saying “Can I have a go please”, “Can I help do that please”. So when my dad had to sort the patio out at their house to relay them due to them sinking and needing rebedding down my nephew immediately started saying his favourite words.
Here is my nephew Jack preparing the space ready for the slab to be relayed down, he was banging the stones flat and adding some sand aswell to give it support underneath. Good job little man!
Well what a week it has been again, great weather until today and it started bucketing down with rain. Not what I want for the weekend when one of my cousins is getting married Saturday, let just hope it stops for a little while atleast so all the guest don’t look like drowned rats going into the church.
MAMMA MIA, I brought my mum tickets to go and see mamma mia at the hippodrome in Birmingham for her birthday present as a BIG surprise as she has always wanted to see it and always loved the film, so what a perfect opportunity. We went on the evening of 13th August at 7.30pm and it was out of this world, it was absolutely fantastic, we laughed and sang our hearts out the whole way through the performance, the actors & performers were amazing too and really made it come to life.
Lots of summery clothes like dresses as it has been very warm in Birmingham this week, I hope it is here to stay for a while longer.
Quite a few emails for getting involved in blog posts/articles, now to find time to sit and write them all up. I do love busy times like this when I’ve got lots of work to do.
The fantastic new that my cousin gave birth to the safe arrival of her 4th baby, a girl named Ella-Joy, she already has 3 boys and they have always wanted a girl, and now their family is complete. Also that some selfish idiot wasn’t paying attention while driving and went in the back of my other cousin’s husband car while sat stationary waiting at a set of traffic lights, which with the force of that then pushed him in the back of someone elses car causing the devastating news that their car is a write off due to the cost and amount of damage sustained.
Wouldn’t say it’s a made as such but this week me and my fiance decided to do a BBQ after work as the weather has been gorgeous. We cooked, burgers, hot dogs and chicken, It was so good and the smell of a cooking barbecue is one of my all time favourites. We may have cooked the dog some meat aswell for her tea.
I start my new job on Monday at Cushman & Wakefield as an AP Clerk (Accounts Payable). I’m so excited, cannot wait!
Hope all you lovely people have had a great week too
At the weekend we went to Wales to crash my fiance’s parent’s holiday. We decided to travel down Friday night after work and left about 6pm and arrived about 9pm and came home Sunday evening around 8pm.
This was the view from out the front door of the cottage. It was so peaceful and tranquil, and was just beautiful in every way and I didn’t want to leave.
