Life in the Slow Lane: HELLO MONDAY!

Monday 3 September 2012


This week I'm saying 

HELLO to Craig's Birthday on Tuesday...and to the first time we won't be together to celebrate it :(

HELLO to two of THE GIRLS arriving today...two  is better than none, but we'll miss Morag and Anna!

HELLO to getting my car fixed..yes the battery has decided to die on me, just as I need it to go and pick said girls up....we have a contingency plan if it can't be fixed first thing tomorrow!

HELLO to a week of catching up, laughter, not much dieting..and a few cocktails thrown in for good measure!

HELLO to much more pleasant temps..the intense heat has abated and life is returning to normal!

HELLO to LSNED..yes , I've decided to take part but have no  idea yet as to how I will present it..I'm keeping my thoughts in a notebook for the moment.

HELLO to 'Passing the Book'........ Jemma from JUST JIMJAMS!... I have your address Jemma, but it will probably be later in the week before I get it in the post. I'll let you know when it's on its way.

I hope you too are saying 'hello' to some good things this week!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx


  1. Hello Alison :o)
    That's good news for my Monday - thank you!!! If you want to get one of the girls to post from the UK when they return from their visit I'm happy to wait - no hurry! Enjoy your week :o)

  2. Sorry you won't be with Craig on his birthday, but do have fun with the girls!! Glad the weather is cooling off for you. I'm saying hello to Labor Day and our DD Grace coming over today. DH is going out of town, so I say hello to lots of scrappy time and I need it this month. Lots of projects to get done for October. ~ Blessings, Tracey

  3. Sorry you won't be with Craig on his birthday. The rest of the week sounds like it's going to include some fun though!

  4. Sounds like it's going to be a fun week.....mine should be as well!

  5. Yes . . . cocktails and dieting. A delicate balance. I find I would often rather skip dessert and drink my calories - LOL!
    I had totally forgotten that I did see Jethro Tull in concert (probably something to do with the state I was in at the time, if you catch my drift . . .). It was the late 70's or early 80's, and they were already feeling a bit old and tired.

  6. What a lovely week you have planned (other than not being with Craig).

  7. Have a glorious visit with the girls :)

  8. Hello to September. I hope fall comes early.

  9. It`s like as soon as September hit the weather immediately got colder! We are hearing predictions of an early winter (now that statement is cause for a cocktail or two!!).

    PS - thank you so much for the birthday package!! I received it Friday - but just got back this evening from being out of town!

  10. Glad the temperatures are lower now Alison, have a great week with your girlfriends!

  11. Oh, we had some cooler days last week but are back up in the 100s again this week! UGH This week I'm saying Hello to packing up & heading out for a 4 day crop with BPC friends!

  12. Sounds like a good week to me - especially as there are cocktails involved!

  13. What fun to have the girls with you! Watch Mamma Mia, It's Complicated, The Holiday & all the other girly movies!! ENjoy!!!

  14. Congrats, Jemma!

    Hope your car is OK now, Alison x

  15. Glad to hear the temps are better. Have a great week with the girls. Sorry you weren't able to be with Craig on his birthday.

  16. Sounds positive apart from missing Craig and getting the car sorted. You're doing well on LSNED, better than me anyway as I haven't even read the prompts!


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
