My New Windmill!!

Hubbie and i had an anniversay last week... 19yrs scince our first date!!He bought me a new windmill!! You may think this is a strange gift but it's not really, i like to think i'm Emily Lloyd from the film 'wish you were here' so have a windmill on the basket of my bike. Sadly i've gone through two now as they don't seem to be sturdy enough to cope with the sea breeze, or is it the breeze from me cycling sooo fast?
This windmill seems to be sturdier than the last two so hopefully it will last a bit longer. Need to wait for hubbie to zip tie it to my basket now...
I'm going to see if i can find a piccie of my beloved bycicle to show you later.


One of my favourite things to do is read, i have a few friends that we have a kind of 'book circle' going on, we swap books alot, but as i've been working a lot lately i havent been able to keep up and the book mountains seem to be taking over...

Here is my favourite reading chair, it used to belong to my granny and is very comfy

And here is the bookshelves hubbie made me, hmmmm, time for some more to be built me thinks...

This is the book i'm about to start reading, it's the second in a trilogy and is very different to the kind of thing i usually read, but i'm really into it, thanks to my niece Kirstin who lent me them!!

Kev found these photos of our Baxter who is now in doggie heaven. They were taken on his phone so apologies if they are suspect quality...

Here he is looking guilty..

And here he is looking definately guilty of putting his nose somewhere he shouldn't have!!
Hurrah for Tescophoto.com who should be busy printing 175 for me as i type!!

After a very frosty start to the day, it did feel a lot like spring, so i couldn't resist the little bunch of Daffodils that i found in M&S.
Yes mum i have bought you a bunch as well!
I love daffodils, they make me smile.

Happy Valentines!!

So do we all feel suitably loved? Of course it's all a big con really.. but god help the man who puts these thoughts into practise!!
Me? I got a lovely little plant of mini roses and a nice card from hubbie, we've just had a nice tea that he cooked, and tonight we are going to sit in front of a roaring fire with apple cake, wine and a bit of 'Jack' aka 24 box set season 6.

What more could a girl wish for??

This is my card to him with the buzzy bees on..

I was Sucked in...

....to Accessorise that is...
The trouble with working in Colchester on a Saturday is that i have to walk past this lovely shop to get to work.
And whoever could resist this sign is a better woman than me..
Can't show you everything that i got as there is a pressie for a friend in there, but can show you my lovely chunky scalf which was 70% off!! Bring on the snow!

Thought i'd share this yummie stuff i found in Whittards. Yummie cordial!
It's usually £3.50 a bottle which i think is rather a lot to pay, for squash! But it was reduced to £1.00 a bottle so i thought i'd treat myself and i'm glad i did it's great!!

Happy Birthday Kevin!!

I took my dear hubbie to Colchester for his 37th Birthday, on Wed where we languished in the bubbles and steam at Aqua Springs, then took a lovely walk through the castle grounds to the town where he decided as it was his birthday it was perfectly acceptable for him to spend a fortune in Fat Face.

As you can see from the photos it was a lovely sunny January day, and he is very smiley after his lunch in Cafe Rouge where he was pleased to find they sold 'Brune Beer!'
