52 weeks of Vicki - weeks 7 & 8 - oops


Whoops - forgot completely to blog last week and even worse I'm a week behind on my reading! It's been half term here and whilst the boys no longer need entertaining what little routine we have to our lives goes completely out of the window! Late nights, lie-ins, meals all over the place and we're never quite sure who is here for dinner/lunch etc.

So pics from the last 2 weeks - all snapped on something made by Apple - just so easy to snap away on my phone these days;

 Flowers for me - sent to cheer me up when I was having a particularly rough time the other weekend. Still typing up loose ends from my old life - almost there - just one big one to sort.

 Lovely sunny days mean I've dragged my bike out a few times - once on a much needed trip to the bottle bank!! Not all the empties are mine - those boys of mine love their cider and ginger beer too.

 A walk along the prom at Aldeburgh the other day - the sun was shining and reflecting off the sea - reminding me that spring is just round the corner.

 Crochet and rugby watching - a pretty good way to spend a Saturday afternoon - especially as England won :)

 Beer and catching up with the Folk Show on Iplayer - very happy Vicki

 A sunrise - always beautiful to see.

And lastly something that cheers me no end - washing drying outside in the sunshine - meaning for a few hours my house no longer resembles a laundry!!

Right that's all for this week - mostly quite simple things but all make me happy/smile for there own reasons. 

Back to school for the boys tomorrow - a last minute homework panic is happening as I type.

See you soon

I've had my washing on the line to this week, it makes all the difference doesn't it. Those flowers are beautiful, I'm glad you have those around you who can support you through those difficult times, that makes all the difference too! Take care Vicki :) x

I'm glad it's not just me who ends up out of whack at half term! I'm also loving that 18th Birthday cake x

Lovely pics for your weekend and wishing you strength with the thing you have to face.

No washing out here today otherwise it would have been blown into another county!

Gorgeous pics of your last two weeks. Good luck with tying up those loose ends.

Simple things are always the best. I love drying clothes on the washing line. I was thinking about it today as the tumble dryer was whizzing around x

Claire said...

wow, you're good putting the washing out, I haven't risked that yet!

School hols always play havoc with routines don't they. Hasn't it been great getting washing out on the line for a change.
