Celebrations and Happy Easter


Thanks to Viklit for hosting 

The end of the week certainly comes round fast which means it's time for us to reflect on events from the past seven days. Even though I've been away from school it has been a busy week in our household. We are having some new windows fitted on the front of the house and it is amazing how the whole thing takes over! People in and out of the house and dust everywhere not only in the rooms where the new windows are going, however, I know it needs to be done and they are looking good so guess I'll just have to get on with a bit of cleaning this afternoon. Due to the Easter break, the window fitter won't be back until next Tuesday to finish off so need to get rid of some of the dust else it will only travel!

Apart from the new windows this week I am celebrating;

  • Going out for a nice long walk with friends from work on Monday. It was a beautiful day and we had lunch in a pub on the way. Chance for a good natter away from work. 
  • Went to see an Agatha Christie play last night called, 'Black Coffee.' It was very good, nice to see the 1920's costumes and sets.
  • A 21st birthday celebration to go to tomorrow.
  • I didn't achieve huge amounts of writing this week, but did a little editing, sent a piece of work  out on submission and tidied up a short story I am sending off to a competition, so progress of sorts.
  • Looking forward to eating chocolate again on Sunday. At times it has been hard not reaching for a choccy treat at times of stress, but, on the whole, it hasn't been too difficult to abstain for a while. Lost a couple of pounds as well so that was a bonus!
Hope you all have a happy, peaceful Easter weekend.

    We had windows put in a few years ago. Yeah, there's a lot of dust.

    Dust is a pain, but it will all be worth it when the windows are done! :D

  6. Wahoo to losing the pounds, but going without chocolate? That's determination. Here's to sticking to your guns and getting results! Happy Easter to you.

  11. Hi human, Suzanne,

    My human had double-glazed windows fitted. He tells me it takes twice as long to wash them. I think he's being silly.

    Nothing like a pleasant walk in such fine weather in our beautiful English countryside. I'm going to take Gary for a walk on Sunday.

    Enjoy that birthday celebration. A peaceful Easter to you and your loved ones, my human friend.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny, the friendly host of the Alphabark Challenge! :)

  12. Hope you had a great Easter! That's very cool about the Agatha Christie play. The 1920s is always such an appealing setting, I think...

  18. I'm impressed by anyone who can give up chocolate... I have to know it's there, even if I no longer need to eat it every day.

  19. Good luck with submissions!

    And well done on the chocolate restraint, I do not have your will power. Just talking about it is making me want to reach for a piece....Agh!

    Btw, I'm following your blog via the wordpress reader. It's such a shame that Wordpress and Blogger don't communicate better. Thought I'd let you know as it's always nice to hear of a new follower :)
