Center Parcs.

Me and OH have spent the last 4 days at Center Parcs. 

A very good time had by all :)

Controlled excitement.

I've had a lovely weekend. Me and OH went to see a free preview of West is West this morning that was brilliant - I'd definitely recommend it. 

Got home and spotted these in the bare bushes by our house:

These aren't the best photos as they wouldn't stay still at all - but these are Waxwings! OH was very excited that they were here. 

We've just spent the rest of the day relaxing - I even had a nap on the sofa :)

We're off to Centre Parcs tomorrow - I CANNOT wait! Very excited.

Long day.

It's been a long day today, very glad it's over. Some days are great at work, others not so.

So, the first thing I did was make a cup of tea in the pot 

Then poured myself a big cup in one of my favourite mugs :) 

And accompanied with a homemade scone with jam and cream :)

Winter Comforts.

Some days, there's nothing better than a warming bowl of soup when you get in. In today's case, tomato, including a cheese sandwich on the side. Bliss.

An early night needed, it's definitely been a long day.

Happy Valentine's!

I am a fan of Valentine's Day, especially now I've got someone to share it with :) 

This is the card I got this morning, along with Adele's new CD, 21. So, I'm definitely a lucky girl! I got him a card and some lovely chocolates, so I think he was pleased as well. It's nice to make someone else smile, I like being able to do that :) 

On the way home, I popped into our local retail park. Had a browse bought some lovely salad from M and S, along with a juice I've been wanting to try for a while now. The doctors have said that I need to take better care of myself, so adding juices into the mix should work well, I'm hoping. 

I'm hoping it's nice!

White bread.

For a while now I have contemplated making bread. It's meant to be so much nicer than shop brought bread and it always seems so straight forward to make. Got some strong white flour and all of the other ingredients, and off I went! 

The end result is this:

I'm pretty impressed with that, I must say. For a first attempt, it was tasty!

This is my first post! 

I've started this blog to talk about making a better life for myself and my other half :)
