Happy Monday friends. Welcome to another fun filled Creative Mondays Link Up.

Time.. Goes… By… So… Quickly!!!

How has your weekend been?

Today I am sharing a few more photos from a walk around the park last week. You can find some more family photos here: Hello Spring And A New Floral Spring Dress #LinkUp.

Just Another Manic Monday #CreativeMondaysLinkUp.

All go here again.

Up early, lunch boxes made, kids and Husband off to work and now just me to get ready for work. Mondays are so manic.

I love weekends but this weekend has been super crazy.

New fridge arrived Saturday. A nice big American style fridge, what I have dreamed about for about 10 yeas!!

Moved it around a few times like you do!?

Eventually turned it on early Sunday morning.

Walked Mollie.

Filled fridge up with food.

Went to work.

Walked home as Husband was at work.

Cooked dinner and then opened the wine.

A great end to the weekend!!

Just Another Manic Monday #CreativeMondaysLinkUp

I was in so much pain yesterday too. Exercise should come with a health warning!

Feeling really old too!! Saturday my youngest Son and I were the only 2 left home so I challenged him to a game of basketball at the park.

We use to love playing it on the Sonic baseball games machines when on holiday in the arcades so how hard could it be? 

We were out a few hours as it was so much fun, plus I was winning so feeling confident and my Son was losing so he would leave until he won!!

Long story short we left as we were both in need of a drink! Well on Sunday morning I felt like I lost all control of my left side.

(Yep I’m left handed so left arm went up and left leg in the game). So much pain. Not even funny!?. I am finding it hard to move my left leg and arm as the pain is unreal.

The wine was much needed and helping 😁👍

Definitely need to do it again once I have recovered. Basket ball anyone?

Update: I have been having a bit of trouble posting the blog hops lately as the JavaScript for the blog hop was ok for Blogger and not right for WordPress.

    such a fun dress and what a great watch

  17. Ada says:

    Another fabulous midi floral dress Claire, just like the one I featured last week on Thursday Moda. Love this one even more because of the colors. Did some shopping lately and mustard or yellows paired with navy is huge this season. Also anything green! I love that you wore cute fishnet socks too. I just ordered some identical socks and cannot wait to style mine this Spring and Summer. =) Make sure to join my monthly Tuesdays linkup today and the linkup on Thursday. Thanks!
