Highlight from my week

My highlights last week were:

Booking another Sun holiday! I was looking for a holiday for my sister and saw one in October that was a 'pay only £9.50' week. So I booked it, the whole holiday cost £40.30! It is at Haven Combe Haven, in Sussex near Hastings.

My niece and nephew had a sleepover here, on Saturday night. My niece didn't go to sleep until 10.50pm! She went off to sleep when I put some music on. It was nice to be able to spend some time with them, we went to the park, did some puzzles, watched TV and my niece painted my nails.

I hope you've had some highlights in your week.

Highlight from my week

Hello again! I hope you've all had a good week? This week has passed so quickly, I keep thinking about the things I need to get on and do but I never seem to find the time! Maybe that should have been one of my hopes for 2015, to set aside time to do jobs.

I have two highlights from this week. 

1. I met up with my friend on Friday evening for a catch up and we went to two of her local pubs. We actually went to one and there were only a couple of people there, so we went on to the other pub. We had one drink there and then went back to the first pub but there were still only about six people there, we stayed for one drink then went back to her house. It won't come as a surprise, that I forgot to take a photo!

2. I booked my £9.50 Sun holiday today! I'm going in June so it's actually £15 per person but it still works out cheaper than booking through the company. I'm going to Haven Littlesea near Weymouth, I've been there once before but it was years ago and I don't really remember it. There is a Lagoon and you can walk along the South West Coast Path in both directions from there, which I'm looking forward to exploring.

Highlight from my week

Welcome to my new project for this year, Highlight from my week. As I mentioned in my New Year post, this might be one or many highlights and I'll hopefully manage to do a post every week. Please feel free to join in with this project!

My first highlight. I've have been meaning to get some photo albums for ages now. I went to town in the week and in Boots they had all of their albums half price. So, I got these two for £14, now I just need to sort out my photos!

Beginning a New Year!

Hello 2015! 

I hope you all had a good New Years Eve/day. Our NYE was spent at my sister's, playing the Wii and iPads, we have done this for the past few years now. The kids stayed up until just after midnight but were ready for bed by then! Today has been grey, windy, wet and dull, a day to stay in.

In last years post, here, I mentioned my four hopes for 2014. I managed to achieve two of them - meeting new/seeing old friends and to keep blogging/join in with 52 Weeks of Happy. One didn't happen - finishing my Granny Stripe blanket. The last one is getting there - job/pursuing a new career, I'm on the way to volunteering which will hopefully lead to/help with this.

Have you achieved your resolutions/hopes for last year?

My hopes for this year, let me think...
  • I definitely need to have a clear out/tidy up
  • I would love to do some travelling but I don't think that will happen this year
  • To read more. I have my magazine subscription to catch up on and lots of books on my shelf
  • To pick up where I left off with my crochet
  • The obvious ones - to find work, have good health and good times!
  • I forgot one! To carry on blogging

So, onto a project to do instead of 52 Weeks of Happy. My project for this year, is going to be a post with a highlight/s from my week. This might be one highlight or many from my week, I'll hopefully remember to take a photo and post something each week! This is similar to 52 Weeks of Happy and will make me think about the positive things. Please feel free to join in with this project, if it takes your fancy!

Here's to 2015, which will hopefully be a year of love, laughter, health and good times for us all!
