Off on holidays.....

Where does the time go??  I cant believe its a week since I posted and with so much to tell you as well!

Firstly lulu has had her hair cut and I must admit I did ask for it to be cut fairly short but now I feel so guilty and want to knit her a jumper!!  She looks soooo skinny, the poor love.

Then I had my nails (both toes and fingers) painted in readiness for my hols.  They are now a lovely glittery red but very short Im afraid as they keep splitting, so Im hoping the Shellac will enable them to grow a bit.
Now I cant say I never win anything cos I do sometimes, but can you imagine my surprise when I browsed my favourite website, UKS, on Tuesday morning only to find I won the Blog Hop!!  Ive won so many lovely prizes and was so excited I actually wanted  to go into work that morning (to tell everyone!)  Everyone says I should do the lottery this weekend as my stars must be in alignment!!

And finally, Megan and I are off to sunny (I hope) Tunisia on Sunday for an all exclusive holiday in the resort of Port El Kantaoui.  Now, Ive been to Tunisia before (about 30+ years ago) and although a lot of people dont like Tunisia I loved it and thought the beaches were fabulous and the people friendly, ok a bit too friendly sometimes!  Anyway, were only going for a week and intend to chillax big time and not spend much money (but it has got a great Spa apparently).  Hope it doesnt rain here too much (tee hee!!).

Well, Ill blog all about it when I get farewell for now peeps.

First soup of the season.....

The trouble with trying to be a ‘Domestic Goddess’ is the aftermath!!  I’ve been making a fairly simple Butternut Squash and Chilli soup this morning and it seems to have been fairly successful BUT the washing up!!!  I don’t put my pots and pans in the dishwasher so had to tackle the washing up by hand.

In other poor, old mother had a bit of a shock yesterday when she discovered she didn’t have one cataract but TWO, one on each eye.  She will have the first one removed on 2nd October and then second one a few weeks later.  This will cause no end of problems for her because she is a carer for my poor, old dad who has dementia and heart problems.

Monday meanderings....

Another Monday rolls around all too quickly but on the plus side it’s now less than two weeks to my holiday to Tunisa with Meg.  I need to get my head around washing , ironing and packing, we’re hoping to get away with just one large suitcase and one carry on between us but we’ll see! 
Looking forward to the Autumn schedule for TV and hoping that there will be one two or good drama series to follow.  So far I’ve heard of Whitechapel (excellent), Doc Martin (very good) and, of course ‘Strictly’ (woohoo!)
Flower photo is from my Mum’s garden............

It’ll soon be Summer’s end....I shouldn’t be sad because we have had a brilliant one this year but I am a bit.  Never mind Autumn is around the corner and that’s a good season too.....I love the smells of Autumn, don't you?
