Five On Friday: Welcome To The Weekend Link Up

Happy Friday Friends.

Welcome To The Weekend Link Up.

130 blog posts were shared here last week, thank you, everyone.

What have you been blogging about this week?

Do you want to share your posts here with us?

This week I have been writing about:

Me and my Daughter had a day out in Nottingham and she picked me a few clothes for Mother’s Day.

Trouble is I can not wear them yet as it is still cold.

Roll on Spring!

A Day Out In Nottingham: What I Wore: 40+ Style: Polka Dots and Patent Boots.

I reviewed a beautiful Spring 2018 Table Setting From Sainsbury’s.

It is beautiful and I love the pop of yellow.

Perfect for Spring/Summer.

We had a fun day at the zoo and seen some adorable animal.

Day At The Zoo: The Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday Link Up.

Did you know that it is National Noodle Month?

Yummy, I love noodles.

Here are Five Noodle Tips from Royal China Group.

Are you trying to be healthier and fitter?

I am.


Here is how I am getting on so far:

Lifestyle Changes With Forza Shake It Slim Milkshakes.

In other news, Mollies foot is getting better. She can almost walk without a limp again. Bless her.

Mollie is hiding in this photo.

Why is she hiding? Because of her foot?


Because I am vacuuming.

Why am I vacuuming?

Because Mollie is throwing her Winter coat away …

Bit by bit.

Clump by clump.

All over.

    Hi Claire, I love the photo of you posing under the signpost, it gives the impression you are somehwere exotic (apart from the weather). I do love noodles too and had no idea it was National noodle month (living & learning)… It won't be long before our muts start to loose their winter coats too, our Belgian shepherds coat is a nightmare!Thank you for hosting.xx
