13.  Your Marie Kondo moment. Or not. - Definitely a NOT.  The spare room/dumping ground.

15.  Your Best Doodle Art (not public graffiti).  I'm not an artist by any stretch of the imagination.  I doodled this whilst doing a safeguarding course and thinking about how children feel at the start of their journey to how they feel at the end.

16.  A Guilty Pleasure; Something That Recharges You.  Crochet, crochet and more crochet.  

I didn't get 1, 9, 12 & 20 before the deadline but I had ideas for them.  It gives me something else to post about though, once I get my finger out and get the pictures taken!!

A huge thank you to Mary-Lou at Patio Postcards for hosting again this year and coming up with a list that kept us on our toes.

Me on a Monday - 11 October 2021

Another week down and two to go before it's half term.

It was a busy, but not so hectic week at work.

I booked in for my COVID booster but then had to reschedule due to having a cold.  It's now on            1 November, at Tesco of all places!!

Sore throat and snuffles for a few day but not enough to stop me doing the Race for Life on Sunday.  Being in no fit state to attempt running, I managed to jog a bit and walk quickly the rest of the way and did the 5K in 48 minutes.  Next year I'm definitely signing up for Pretty Muddy.  5K through mud and over an inflatable course. What could be better?  I'm trying to get the men folk to tag along but they probably won't.

Saturday was housework day as we have visitors coming to stay, this week, for the first time since last August. You know you have the best friends when they ring you up, just to tell you they're in the butchers and would you like a haggis bringing down next week?   I'm so looking forward to seeing them.

Hope you all have a good week.

Afternoon Tea

Hands up who like afternoon tea?  Me too and so do the ladies I work with.  We decided that, as we'd had a really busy school year, we would treat ourselves to an afternoon tea once term had finished.

It was delicious.  Gallons of tea, five choices of sandwiches and cakes galore.

They may have had to roll me home. :0)
