Away Again!

Yes I am yet again off to stay away again for the next few nights for work.

I am heading to London and have any early session first thing tomorrow so will have opted to stay away tonight rather than attempt the drive first thing tomorrow.

My home for the next few nights will be a premier inn;

A comfortable room and bed.

As I was working from home first thing this morning my outfit was a comfy one;

Dress - Primark (years old)
Sandals - Primark

Plus one I can at least fit in!

The diet is going well but the lack of exercise isn't helping matters.
I am just too shattered to do anything other than my evening walk backwards and forwards to the allotment, which at least is some I suppose.

But I will be at the the gym the weekend and will be aiming to swim whilst I am staying away too.

Hope you are all having a great week so far and that the nasty weather hasn't spoilt it too much.

A Little More Fun...

Yep here are more photos from our trip;

We play rather silly games when away and this still makes me chuckle.
You have to eat your creme caramel in one mouth full.
(thankfully no one took a picture of me cause I ended up with it all round my face!)

Open wide..

All gone!
 For the second of our trips out we visited Les Sables-d'Olonne.
We have many photos from over the years of the children at this fountain, so we though this year it was our turn.

Andy's scary shocked face!

Thats better.
I couldn't resist playing with the settings as we walked round.

There is some fabulous shell wall art as you wonder around the streets, they are very easy to miss.

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly....

Ok so its that time again and here they are;

The Good
Having a great holiday

It was lovely to have both the girls with us and we all got on well too.

Eating some great food
Far too much french bread....

Crepes with chocolate....

And pain du chocolaté!

Enough said about that.

The Bad
Going back to work

Not much to add on that point really.

The Ugly
Getting so fat!

(which seeing what I ate is no surprise really)
The fact that I can't get into any of my clothes is truly horrifying.
I am having to hit the gym and be very good as no way am I buying new clothes in a bigger size!

Post Holiday Blues!

Yes its back to dear old blighty and that of course means back to work too.
(Well no rest for the wicked eh)

Hope you have all been well out in blog land and I look forward to catching up with all your blogs very soon.

Our holiday was fantastic, thank you for all your lovely comments.

It was of course very frugal, but still a great time was had by all.

I now have real difficulty in fitting into any of my clothes (I kind you not) and have left a huge pile on the bed that I failed to squeeze my lump of a body into.

The gym will be seeing me first thing tomorrow morning before work and the diet is back on.

I'll leave you with a few pictures from our time away.
Our peaceful first few days just the two of us.

Glorious sunsets and walks on the beach

Even nice when the family joined in too

Kassie acting the fool behind Andy.

Andy's best "How you doing????" look. 

Even he found it funny!

Ashleigh and Andy playing badminton.

Far too energetic for me!

Admiring the little fishing boats.

Plenty of sea food to eat.

Is smelt divine.

This not so much and I love cheese!

These were very yummy.

Au Revior Mes Amis!!

Yes today we are off on our jollies.

And it feels very odd as it is just Andy and I.

Why you may ask?

Well because Ash has her 6th form induction so will be following on with her sister in a few days time.

Don't get any ideas about visiting whilst we are away as we have not only a fierce terrifing cat;

(ok may be not that fierce)

But we also have house sitters in the form of friends visiting the inlaws for a holiday from Finland.

Have a great two weeks and I shall see you all soon.

Many Changing Faces....

I suddenly don't seem to have enough hours in the day to get everything done and I am constantly rushing from one thing to the other.

And it has to be said I'm not liking it very much!

Whilst I have been running around like a nutter my youngest has been changing her style yet again.

A trip to the hairdressers means you never know quite what you will find on your return home.

Me, I reach for a cheap bottle of hair dye;

In preparation for our holiday.

But Ash on the other hand costs a fortune with Toni and Guy prices.

This is how her hair is this week;

A deep red with a bright red underneath, which you can't actually see very well on these shots.

However she's not too happy with it so I won't be surprised if it changes again in the next few weeks.
Lets just hope none of it falls out with all this colouring going on.

Well I must Be Tasty!!!


I am just about to go on holiday and I end up with a leg the Elephant man would be proud of!

Whilst up the allotment I felt something nip my leg, though nothing much of it until I got home and now my leg looks like this;

Not only is it huge, but its red hot and itches like a crazy thing, even after antihistamines.

Lets hope it games down before Tuesday.

A Weekend Of Calm... (I Hope!)

After a manic week, seeing me get up at 4am three time might I add.
(No one should willing have to do that)

I am looking forward to a weekend of calm.

Well I say calm, what I actually mean is catching up with work, doing housework and packing like a crazy thing, posting eBay parcels and helping my sister in law move.  So not quite the calm most people might have in mind.

And to do said calm this is my attire for the day;
Tshirt - Next (years old)
Jeans - ASOS

Chilled and relaxed.

Just what I need.

And whilst I do like my tshirt it can be a pain as to what bee to wear with it;

If you see what I mean?!

I must apologise for not visiting your lovely blogs but with all the hours I have been putting in I could hard;y keep my eyes open to drive let alone look a t computer screen.

I hope to visit you all before I go to London on Monday for work.

Then I will be awol for a few weeks as we go to France for our holidays.

I will schedule a few adhoc posts whilst I am away and will look forward to catching up with all your antics when I return.

Anyhoo, back to the list of jobs.

Catch  you later!
