I'm having to apologise as usual for being late to the party but it's time for -
with Lexa Cain
This week, I am celebrating:
1 - my car being back on the road - MOT'd and taxed - yipee!!
I dropped it off at the garage in the city and then caught a bus to my morning craft club - the bus came as soon as I arrived at the bus stop and then on the way back I decided I'd walk some of the way back into town as part of my healthier life style and just as my feet began aching the bus arrived at the bus stop I was walking towards and waited for me!! Almost too good to be true :)
2 - Making a friend's special day by taking them and another friend out for the day (in the car) :)
We went to a lovely little town called Stamford and spent a wonderful day finding and looking in all the charity shops for bargains as well as lovely craft, wool, haberdashery and clothes shops to get ideas and for the other two to purchase a few up-market goods - as I had forgotten my card having used it to tax my car over the phone the previous night I didn't make any large purchases so it was also a very cheap day out for me - £4.20 for lunch and £1.69 for some sari twine and a penguin cookie cutter - both brand new from charity shops!
3 - snuggling up with hubby and kitty cat in front of a real fire to watch Endeavour and The Young Montalbano
The weather has got colder so we have treated ourselves to a real fire twice this week and it's just so lovely watching the flames and feeling all cosy in an evening. There are also some really good detective series back on television which we really enjoy so having a couple of hours on the sofa watching them together is a real treat after work.
It is true that the little pleasures in life can be the most rewarding so why not join in and celebrate those moments in your week with others by pressing the blog button above?
I'd love to know how your week's been so leave me a comment below and let me know - how have you been travelling around this week? Who's been having a birthday? Have you bought any bargains this week? What's the weather been like in your neck of the woods? What TV programs are you watching this winter?
Congrats on getting through the red-tape on your car and being mobile again! Your week sounds heavenly - going out with friends, enjoying shopping, and watching TV by a cozy fire. I hope the rest of your weekend goes just as well. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Lexa and hopefully you'll be able to enjoy your lovely, re-vamped kitchen too this weekend :)Delete
Sounds like you've had a very good week. When you rely on your car being without one is such a nightmare.ReplyDelete
I also love the sound of your shopping expedition. It sounds as though it would've been right up my street.
We went into two antiquarian bookshops and I really did think of you - I just don't think we'd have been able to get you out though!!Delete
Snuggling in front of flames is the BEST!ReplyDelete
You're so right, Paula :)Delete
Went to a Sherlock Holmes exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It was interactive and interesting. Very cold here 22 degrees this morning but clear and a beautiful view of the mountains.ReplyDelete
How wonderful to be able to see mountains from where you live and I think I'd have liked that exhibition too :)Delete
