It’s been twelve days since I last blogged & what a roller coaster it has been!!
On the negative side, we were without internet connection for five whole days!! (Eeek!)'…my car died unexpectedly & needed a new alternator (£500…double Eeek!)…& on what was forecast to be the coldest night of the year, the fan on our gas central heating broke, leaving us with no heating or hot water…luckily It was fixed within 24hours (£350…triple Eeek!!!) So it looks like beans on toast for Christmas dinner this year!!
On the positive…I lost 5lbs in my first two weeks on the new Weight Watchers Pro-Points programme…I got to see the new Harry Potter movie at it’s first showing in Bedford at 9.30am on Friday 19th…& being housebound & with no internet access proved to be the catalyst for my getting loads of DIY jobs done…I have wallpapered & painted two rooms this week!!!
I do have quite a backlog of creativity to share, but I’ll save most of that till next time.
What I would like to share is the ‘special’ challenge currently running over at ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things’ which involves making Thank You cards to send to two very worthwhile causes. I made these two cards & am sending one to each. Full details can be found HERE, & there’s still a little time left if you want to take part, both stories are very moving & really made me stop & count my blessings in spite of all our recent challenges!
That’s it from me for now, I hope all of my UK visitors are keeping warm & not snowed in…I can’t believe it’s going to get worse before it gets better!!! For my US visitors, I hope you’re all enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend!! I’ll be catching up with my blog visits soon & all things being equal, it certainly won’t be twelve days before my next post….
To everyone…Thanks for stopping by & do come back soon! :)
