The old hubsters

Looking rather at home sipping champagne in exquisite surroundings 

Looking more like the man I live with every day lol

It was the old hubby's birthday yesterday so I had to do a find the present game as it was only daft little things so he wasn't empty handed.  You see he didn't want to receive any gifts this year and instead asked that money was donated to a charity on his behalf.  Bless him.  Just one of the many reasons I love this man with all my heart and soul even though he does drive me nuts at times lol.

Alas we should be spending the weekend celebrating and had planned a nice romantic meal out tonight and a day away tomorrow but it was not to be.  Instead he's going to spend the weekend at home alone whilst I spend it at mums doggy sitting as she's gone off with her friend for an overnight stay in York..  hey ho guess that's how life goes.   Just kind of sucks as for many years his birthday was darkened by my dad's anniversary and now I try to make it something extra special.  Instead this year I'm left feeling terribly guilty that it's been ruined yet again. 

Well time to sign off now and I promise to make a better attempt at keeping my blog up to date.  I honestly don't know how folk find the time everyday to update theirs as by the time I sit down at night even it tends to be after 11pm  and I just want to relax then.   

Toddles for now 

Sad day of remembrance

Wednesday saw the 19th anniversary of my dad's passing..  I love and miss him as much today as always.  My world fell apart that day and it's a break that can never be mended.   Whatever you do today and every other day make sure you tell you're loved ones just how special they are.

Little old me hard at work whilst the boss takes a picture lol.


Shop has been busy!

The shop has been mega busy not just with customers but also with lots of deliveries of goods arriving in store needing priced and put on the shelves as quickly as possible because sometimes we just can't unpack quick enough and the customers want to delve through the boxes when they see the arrive lol.


I'm back!!!

Where has the last month and a bit gone???

Can't believe it's been so long yet I haven't  been sitting idle!   It's been busy busy busy.

So I will try and upload some pics now to bring you back up to date and hopefully we can start being a bit more regular again.

So a week tomorrow I have  my oldest friend in the world to extent she's more my sister than a friend, her little girl is making her First Holy Communion and I can't wait to see how beautiful she looks.  Anyway good old Auntie Lorraine was tasked with making the 75 invitations for her big day so I was busy with those for a few days.  Apparently they've gone done well with people saying they are beautiful and nicer than most wedding invitations they receive so I think I've done the girl proud.
