Using my time wisely.

Duckie’s word for the week is TIME and I have managed to do lots of things with my time recently: I went for a walk with Abbie in the local Bluebell wood, it was really lovely being given a cuddle as we walked around the wood an admired the flowers.They smelt good too!
Shirley went to a great crafty event and Kathy, Kay and Curly came along too.
We stopped at the shops on the way, apparently this is what you have to do when you go anywhere! I did see rather a stunning suitcase in one shop.
Once we got to the hotel I found out that the another thing you HAVE to do is make time to have a drink and naughty desserts.
Thank goodness Curly was there to keep me company and chat too because Kay, Kathy and Shirley were talking non stop!
You can see that they had lots of colours to play with in the class and just in case you are wondering, that notice was not stuck in my head!
Mind you I was lucky and did manage to sneek a bit of time with one of the teachers myself!
One morning there was great excitement at breakfast, it was BIRTHDAY TIME! Kay had funtime opening her presents and luckily for everyone Shirley and Kathy did not sing Happy Birthday to her as that could have been rather embarrassing. Not that that usually stops Shirley! Listening to Kay and Shirley talking I heard them make plans for Curly to come and stay with us, which is great news.
This week Colin decided it was time to tidy the loft, I am not surprised as when I got to have a peek it was in a right old mess. Apparently Sue and Abbie are going to ‘do’ a car boot soon and lots of stuff is going to be sold at that hopefully!

After all that hard work of sorting out the loft it was time to go out for a walk. Now you know I have been building up to a very special moment in time. Well today was the day. I found this rather wonky tree stump and it was on this tree stump that I got down on one knee and asked Pip to marry me.

You can tell by the smile on my face SHE SAID 'YES'.
Now you would think that was enough excitement in my life, however, there is more to come. Curly has arrived and is staying with us for a couple of weeks.
Pip was so excited that she had a girly friend to share our news with and started making wedding plans immediately!
However, one thing I had not bargained for was soooooooooooooo much girly chat.
I suppose I will just have to get used to that!
