Sunday Round up!

Decided to try and make a business out of my decorating shoes fetish :)
Wander over and have a nosey - still have some more samples to put on there but it's coming on. www. shoesbysuzanne.co.uk

Did a sale at the local leisure centre - loads of interest with the shoes, ran out of business cards! Sold enough artwork and charms to cover the table and have some left over. But it was predominately to promote the shoes, and that seemed successful. Fingers crossed!
My new fashion accessory for the next 6 weeks! The doc and me are hoping conservative treatment will prevent the need for surgery. Would you believe this is from the fall that injured my foot! Attending physio classes for that at the moment, they really put me through my paces - excuse the intentional pun! Also saw an independent medical doctor re my foot - the claim is just limping along ..... like my foot ;) Smiling, but actually feeling a bit down about it all at the moment.


First trip of the year to Hampton Court Palace. Love visiting here, it's weird but I feel like I belong there - no, I don't believe in reincarnation! Hopefully, now that I'm walking more we can make full use of the annual pass as it also includes Tower of London - Kew Palace - Banqueting House - and Kensington Palace. And with not having a holiday this year (big celebration remember?) it's good to know we have some days out to look forward to.
Respite celebrated Chinese New Year and Ella got this lovely Chinese dress as a gift :)


Ella 'helping' me count calories - love how everything's nil! And the drawing of the caterpillar is just awesome!

Jeff and Orla - our beautiful God-daughter is now 5, where did that go?!










At the above mentioned 5th birthday party Ella won pass the parcel. She was so excited! Fast forward after bath and pyjamas and the reality of trying to put a jigsaw, or jibsaw as she calls it, set in!


Other news in brief....

Went to see Cats, enjoyed it but once was enough;
Quiz night to raise money for Martha - least said about how badly we did the better! Although they raised pots of money, so I suppose it was worth humiliating ourselves LOL!
Joshua and Benjamin are still football mad :)
Joseph's counting the days:)
Relaxing crafting evening with Liz - first one since the foot.
Sandra popped round for a cuppa.
Night out with Julie.
Couple more interviews - great that I get to the interview stage - but struggle getting the offer. I get it, with the current climate there's a lot of people applying, and I'm taking a sideways step - on the ball today with the foot references! - but it's still frustrating.
Met Ella's new temporary SW. Why am I not surprised that SS didn't let us know in advance. And why am I further not surprised to learn that as a 'child in need' Ella should be visited monthly - umm, does an average of twice a year count as monthly!

And finally after the longest, wettest winter we've had for years it looks like spring has finally sprung - and what better way to celebrate than with a bunchof daffodils :)

  1. I don't believe we are ever going to see warm weather again. This is only my 3rd winter back here and I never remember it being this cold and snowy when I was a kid, but my friends who have lived here the whole time agree it's never been like this. I'm glad you did well at the show and I hope your decorated shoes take off!

    1. It has been depressing - I'm not a sun worshipper, but it is nice to feel warm and dry! Even just hanging the washing out to dry has got me all excited LOL! Let's hope spring is finally pushing though :) x

    1. Thanks Suzanne :) It is isn't it - just being able to leave the windows open to air the house without fear of everything getting soaked is a plus! xx

  5. Yeah... I totally get what you're saying about being down, but smiling. I'm there too.

    Looks like you did some wonderful things, though. :-)

    1. Thanks Misha - it's hard though isn't it, always putting on a smile - when sometimes a scream and a good old-fashioned whine is what is really needed xx
