March Round Up and a Photo a Day

No sign of slowing down yet, hence the lack of blog posts and visits, I thought it would slow down end of March, but looks more like April now! Thank goodness I've already scheduled the A-Z posts :) So here's March's rundown ....
1. Went to see The Theory of Everything with Joshua - the only time he's been to the cinema with me, but I think it was a case that none of his mates wanted to see it LOL!
2. My first visit to Jimmy Spice in Staines - very yummy puddings :)
3, Shared the friendship one with my mates - not sure if they were pleased or depressed ;)
4. Was on my IWSG post (did you know I was a co-host) I just think the words were so relevant.
5. Jeff was feeling a bit rough after a tooth extraction and Ella went up to him and just held his hand - so lovely :)
6. Few items from the local age concern charity shop.
7. Book a month - Really enjoyed this, couldn't put it down.
8. Loving these, text and doodles on shoes wedding shoes.
9. Ben and his girlfriend Liana helping decorate some shelves for my big wedding show.
10. Signed up for a free four-week course on creating an ebook - my first notes and thoughts.
11. This made me smile as it is so me!
12. Jeff's put a request in for this cake - thinking Easter - might not have The Dark Side of the Moon on the top though!
13. Red Nose Day at school, pyjama day! Ella actually asked for this photograph, didn't need to beg and cajole.
14. I attended a wedding show over the whole weekend. Was a big gamble, a lot of money, but I weighed up the pros and cons and decided to go for it. It was a really professional set-up, and very busy, so now I just have to wait and see if it was a hit or miss!
15. On the Sunday it was Mother's Day so Joshua's present to me was his company LOL! Seriously, I needed some help and I thought a good looking lad on the stand might attract bridesmaids ;)
15. While I was at the wedding show Ella was looked after by Aunty Lynn. This was her treat for being a star over the weekend :)
16. Spring is a coming in the front garden.
17. Just reminding myself!
18. Working on the cover for my e-book.
19. Just because I was so busy and forgot a photo lol!
20. Ella loves going on the computer when she gets in from school - surfs around You Tube!
21. From little seedlings hopefully lots of tomatoes will grow :) And I attended a Paediatric First Aid course.

22. Jeff saw this mini calendar in a shop for the grand price of 50 pence and thought I would like it - love that man :)
23. Lunch out with the man.
24. Had to take a photo of the front of the house for the fostering process - so planned foster placements have a sneak peek of where they're coming. Went to Ella's secondary school production and was enjoying it so much videoing it, I forgot to take a still! Bad scrapbooker LOL!
25. Awesome Cadbury purple and orange wedding shows. The bride loved them and so did I!
26. What a day! Asian wedding fair. 3 hours to get there instead on 1. Arrived 1.5 hours late and told it wasn't worth unpacking as no-one was turning up because of the traffic nightmares. Then the clutch packed up, no roadside recovery as they were all out on call or stuck themselves! So ended up staying overnight in the hotel and coming home on a low loader the next morning!
27. Joshua played in a semi-final - got a goal, an assist, and player of the match - that's my boy!
28. Joy came round in the evening and we watched Divergent - If you've been reading for a while you'll know I like Young Adult Dystopian tales :) And poor Ella had a temp of 39.9/103.8!
29. Popped in to see Anna and Debbie at a crop, and couldn't resist getting some supplies - going to be for my 2015 album.
30. Eye test, all okay except for some macular spots, and then an interview in the afternoon.
31. Just a beautiful photo and words for the end of the month.


  1. Wow, so much going on, Suzanne! I'm looking forward to seeing the second Divergent film soon. I really enjoyed The Theory of Everything. I'm just about to start my IWSG post as I'm a fellow co-host this month!

    1. Have fun with the IWSG today :) I've been naughty and missed it this month with the start of the A-Z, think I won't be the only one! xx

  2. This was cute how you did a photo a day! Looking forward to the A/Z!


    1. Thanks Betty! It was a challenge to myself - 3 months done, 9 left to attempt! xx

  3. Good for Joshua!
    That cake looks wild.
    Glad you're ready for the Challenge. One more day...

    1. I know, was so proud of him :) Not sure my cake is going to look so impressive lol! xx

  4. Wow you have been busy. That was some traffic jam though. Wow. Good luck with your cake! I have done rainbow cupcakes but never the layer cake.

    1. Wasn't it?! I really appreciated you and Lynda 'keeping me company'. Then the car breaking down and getting stuck there was just the icing on the cake! xx


Love to hear from you. Please leave your thoughts below. Suzanne xx
