Winter Berries : The Wednesday Blog Hop...

Thankfully the weather has warmed up this week. I though Winter had set in when I woke up to the frost about a week ago. Come rain or shine I have to still take Mollie the Collie walkies so I made the most of the frost and took some pictures...

Love to see the pops of red from the berries underneath the frost!

Wordless Or Not So Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop..

Happy Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday photo blog hop. Do you want to join us and link up any post that have pictures in them today?. Any family friendly posts welcome, outfits, crafts, recipes and photography. 

I took these photos on Monday when me and Mollie were on our early morning walk at the park. It was so foggy and frosty, I could hardly see her. She is never too far away though, can you spot her?

Cross Country,Wrapping Up Warm,The Wednesday Blog Hop...

What a week so far. Cold, frosty and oh so rainy!! Not to mention the darkness is arriving earlier and earlier each night. The kids have to rush home from school and change into their running clothes straight away to catch the remaining sunlight. Then off for a little run, by the time we are back the streetlights light the way.

Occasionally all that training is put to good use and they get a chance to compete in X Country races. This past Saturday morning as an example. Cold, Frosty, but thankfully not much mud yet!!

So Far So Good: The Wednesday Blog Hop..

So far so good!! My open plan kitchen is on it's way. The shelves are up and one coat of black varnish is nearly covered it. (This photo was taken a few days ago!). So far it has used 3 tins of varnish. My husband had to come home from work tonight and drive out miles to our nearest Ikea for another 4 tins of varnish to cover the rest and varnish it once more.

I don't think I ever want to varnish my own shelves again!! There has been tears, lol! Hopefully it will look great once finished!!

20 Year Anniversary...

Today is me and the Mr's 20th Wedding Anniversary today.

20 year; being married!! 

How time flies.

It only feels like yesterday a few years ago. I was getting my words all jumbled up. Nothing new there then!

When I nearly said I would take this man to be my unlawful husband! Before I quickly change it.

I'm not sure who deserves the medal more. Ha!!

Me or him!!

I'm saying me ;)

And I'm sure hubby would say him!

Mollies Lion King Moment!!

My husband is off work this week and today we had a drive out to Sherwood Forest, in Nottinghamshire.

Mollie was running around like a kid in a sweet shop. She was so excited about running around and all the new smells.

I was so pleased when I mangaed to take this photo. I just love this one!!

For some reason it just reminds me of The Lion King!!

Beautiful day : The Wednesday Blog Hop...

Have you been enjoying the beautiful weather?

Today I am worn out !! Starting with an early morning run before it got to hot with my son and Mollie the Collie. Then my daughter wanted me to take her on an early morning run too, once I had stepped back inside!

Later leavers assembly for my daughter who is leaving primary school on Friday :(

A walk into town this evening to take my son to a bowling event with his school friends and a long walk in the park before fetching my son back.

When we got home I had planned to cook something from the freezer as it was getting late. Only to find out the freezer door was left open and everything inside was half defrosted...

Grr.. I could sit and cry as I am worn out; but I am starting to try and think positive!!

It must have been meant for the freezer to have a clear out!?

Sharing some pictures today from our walk in the park:

Me And Mini Me :The Wednesday Blog Hop...

Mini me decided she wanted to do my hair before we went out for the night on holiday last week. All was going well until she put the back of the hairdryer to close to her own hair and it suck some of her hair in. A few strands of hair got stuck and I had to cut it out. 

Then she said "you can do your own hair now"!!
