Life in the Slow Lane: THE WEEK THAT WAS

Monday 16 June 2014


This last week has seen a little more 'me' time.

MONDAY saw the repair of my car tyre, which in turn allowed me to go out and buy these lovelies:

 .....I must confess it wasTUESDAY before I got them planted!....and that was later in the evening..our temperatures have been really high this week.....

.....and by WEDNESDAY Boo took the plunge

 ... by THURSDAY I was right in there too!

 On Friday, I did a bit of Hospital visiting which meant me driving through this beautiful countryside:

A few years months ago I would never have dreamt of driving so high up in the it's no problem (I'm still not a good passenger on these journeys though)

In the evening I went down to the village to have a meal with a friend...of course the football was on and we were witness to Spain's defeat in their first match......I'm sure you can imagine the atmosphere by the end of the match!

I was determined to have SATURDAY and SUNDAY at home, to do some work on PROJECT LIFE and some housework!!

...success on both counts!!

This week sees Kirsty coming home for the summer ( her contract is finished and she is going to Glasgow University in September to do a Masters Degree)....I am hoping that too much 'stuff' won't be accompanying her!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Oh how lovely that she'll be home for the summer and I agree - what took you till Thursday to get in the pool?

  2. Glad you managed pool time, creative time and productive time. Here's hoping you get more and more of the first two!

  3. Having been in Spain for the Euro victory, I can't imagine what it would have been there after that awful shredding! We were on pins and needles today during the US game.

  4. Now all the housework is done you can now enjoy more of that pool

  5. How lovely to have Kirsty home for the summer! I'd have been in your pool on Monday!

  6. How lovely to have her home for the summer!
    I have Spain in the sweepstake at work, so I was disappointed too.

  7. Looks like beautiful (although hot) weather there! Glad you found some crafty time in the week!

  8. Gosh, those temperatures are high ... I'd have been in that lovely pool every day! Hoping you have a lovely summer with your daughter - it will go quick so enjoy every moment!

  9. It sounds like you had a lovely week x

  10. For me, any day at home is a good day--that you scored two in a row is amazing!

    P.S. your pool looks super-inviting!
