A quick catch up with my life!

Oops! Where has time gone! I haven’t posted for over a week!

Last week saw me really busy at work. Penny had her last day working with me as my new assistant started on Wednesday– think she will be ok, time will tell!

On top of that, Hugh’s Mum has been taken ill and is back in hospital again. The report from the hospital last night was that the doctors are pleased with her progress, which is good. We don’t know how long she will be in for, but are hoping to be able to visit soon. That is the problem with Hugh’s side of the family living so far away – we feel helpless when something like this happens as we just can’t help out or visit as we would like.

Hugh and I have joined Slimming World. We go on a Saturday morning – it is an early start, but it means that we both can go together which is nice. Last Saturday we both got our firs ½ stone award! We were really pleased. It is so nice doing it with him as we help and encourage each other.

Saturday also saw us shopping for new jeans as ours were falling down! After a morning of shopping we spent the afternoon catching up on all the jobs, so no time for scrapbooking then!

Sunday, of course, was Mother’s Day. I didn’t see my Mum as we are seeing her this Sunday for her birthday, but I did give her a ring and I had already given her a present earlier in March. I received a lovely photo frame from Penny with a photo of her and Ben in it. I had a lovely card from each of them too. Hugh made me my Slimming World breakfast and we then did jobs before having Sunday dinner together. We then took Penny to Tonbridge in Kent for a wrestling event. When we returned I finally had time to do some scrapbooking! Only I’m not sharing the pages yet as they are two for my ‘Five Faves’ and so I will be sharing them later in the month!

Whilst I was scrapping Hugh was putting the rubbish out for the Monday collection. He suddenly appeared at the conservatory door with a small parcel for me. Ben had ordered me Mockingjay Part 1 for Mother’s Day and it had been delivered! I was thrilled and immediately put it on and watched it whilst I scrapped! I had already seen it at the cinema, but I am really enjoying this series of films.

And so that was my week! Saturday looks as if it is going to be busy again this week and then Sunday will see me at Mum’s for her birthday, so little chance of scrapping this weekend! However, tonight I have Wendy and Sue coming round for a crafting evening, so I should end up with something to share with you.

For now, I will leave you with a photo Hugh took of me and Penny on Mother’s Day. Penny was thrilled that she was taller than me in her new heels! Oh, and on her face is her support for a wrestling team written in eye liner!

Sorry to hear that Hugh's mum is poorly, I hope she's much better now. Well done on the 1/2 stone awards! x
