Weight Loss Wednesday

Hi ladies hope you are all keeping well.  The choc feast is over and the sun has been shining for a while now and this has given me a much needed boost.  I love this type of weather as it makes me want to eat salads and tuna which is a good thing right!

As is to be expected I have no loss to report but no gain either which is a minor miracle in itself :o)  My sister and I have been discussing, well she has been persuading me should I say, that regular walks in our pretty little park are what we need.  So I shall be dusting down my trainers and finding something sporty that is not too scary to wear when we venture out!

Hope you are all having good weeks and good weather too.  If you want to see how the others are doing or even join in then just click here.  x

Some pretties on a lovely spring day

Hello my lovely readers.  Did we all get lots of sunshine today?  Had it by the bucket load here, few stray clouds in the afternoon but most of the time the sky was a beautiful shade of blue.  It put a spring in my step as I did some weeding and cleaned my barbecue (oh did it need it!) and replaced the coals.  Feeling quite pleased with myself I made a nice cuppa and decided to take piccies in the garden of recent goodies I have acquired.  I do love taking photos outside, it is sooo much easier to get a good shot.  So here we go then girls.
For the past couple of years my darling neice and nephew have bought me Aunty Day gifts as they say I miss out on Mothers Day, aren't they just the best.  And this lovely birdhouse is what they got me.  It is from John Lewis and I just love it!
It looks rather fetching hanging from my apple tree, which incidentally is already bursting with green shoots.
These lovely dotty and floral items came from good old Tesco, reduced in their Easter section.  I did get 4 of the mugs but 3 are already used and in the dishwasher.
Here's a close up of the rose serviettes, thought they were good value at £1.50 and very Cath Kidston don't you think.
I know, I don't know what possessed me to put a roll of wallpaper in a tree LOL.
It's not a complete roll but for a few pennies it had to come home with me, the flowers are such a lovely colour.
 Couldn't believe my eyes when I sore this, I've sooo wanted one for ages, a cast iron casserole and it's cream!  Good job I wasn't far from my car as these are real heavy, can't wait to cook in it.

A £1 storm lantern for my garden candles, stops those pesky breezes always blowing them out.
The pale cream daffodil, I think they are so elegant, only 2 came out this year, not sure what happened to all the others! Oh and can you see someone's little furry head to the left of it.
Ooh here she is, little Levi with her usual snotty look on her face, bless.
The last piccie above is of, I think, Grape Hyacinths?  This year there are absolutely loads in the garden and really cheer it up.

Well my lovelys thank you if you managed to make it all the way to the end twas a long one I know.  There is a lovely evening glow outside now and I am off to cook some sausages and baked apple for our tea.

Happy Easter

Just popping by to say Happy Easter to you all.

Hope you all get plenty of these!

Just look at the size of this one, worlds largest apparently.  You could sit inside and eat your way out, tee hee!
