When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!! #Linky

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!! The Weekly Link Up.


Happy Monday friends 🖐. How has your weekend been? I’ve been really dizzy last few days and really not feeling myself so it was lovely just chilling all weekend as it was my weekend off work.

I have had a nice few day away from posting on my blog too and have come back feeling more refreshed. Did you catch my updates about the blog hops?

If not you can catch up here:

New Blog Hop In Town:

Important Update: It is with regret that i have came to the decision to retire Creative Mondays, The Wordless Wednesday and Welcome to the weekend Link Up. Did you know that Creative Monday has been running since 2nd January 2012 after weeks of it being Creative Thursday, The Wordless Wednesday since 6th September 2011 and Welcome To The Weekend Link Up since May 2011? This Is Not The End Of Course Not This Is Just The Beginning: “Is this the end?” “Of course not,” . “It’s only the beginning.” – Grease!! On Mondays I will be hosting just one blog hop a week called: The Weekly Link Up.

Thanks so much for the support of you all who said you would come back today to link up.

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!The Weekly Link Up.

Over the last few weeks I have had my share of up’s and downs!!

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!

Well it was going to be a good week last week. I had planned to start the week great and get fit again!

The sun was shining and I was feeling fit so popped my running clothes on and went for a run with Mollie. 🐶

Mollie is scared of other dogs so we took a short cut though the woods.

The next thing I know I was falling to the floor like a ton of bricks.

My foot caught a branch when I was looking around for Mollie plus I’ve never been very good at falling!!

Ouch my knees and arm too the gravel well but my poor neck and back took a pounding.

I stood up with bits of trees sticking out everywhere.

I then said to poor Mollie who was enjoying her run, come on Lou Lou ( my little nickname for her) it’s time to go home.

Then I hobbled down the street feeling sorry for myself!!

I felt so achy all week then really dizzy towards the end of the week.

But now I am fully recovered and ready to try again 🙂

Hope you all had a better week than me 😁👍

Today I am sharing a few photos from our walk around Newstead Abbey, in Nottinghamshire a few weeks ago. It is beautiful here and the sun was shining so a double bonus.
