Sunday night blues

As ever the weekend has absolutely flown by.

I was up and out very early on Saturday morning as I had to go to a speed awareness course. True to form I couldn’t find the place and went in via the golf course entrance and almost( and I stress the almost part here!)had to run. Whilst on the phone the huge unmissable hotel somehow appeared before my very eyes and thankfully I wasn’t late. I did however feel like I was about 5yrs old when I had to walk into a room where I didn’t know anyone and had the dreaded task of finding a seat at one of the tables he he.

Once that was over it was time for a quick change and then to hop on the train to take my lovely other half out for a surprise birthday treat.

As we left we couldn’t quite believe we were child free for 24hrs~with 4 lovely kiddiwinks between us getting time alone is no mean feat.

We had a fab time at the spinnaker tower and of course enjoyed a wander around Gunwharf Quays where they had such beautiful lights and decorations.

We came home and had a nice dinner and some wine which went down very well especially as I had stuck to my month of not drinking any alcohol. I must be good and stick carefully to my slimming plan again to make up for it!

The rest of the eve was very relaxing enjoying the peace and quiet, we caught up on first dates(always my favourite).

Today has been good fun, playing quiz games and organising Christmas and birthday presents too.

All too soon though it’s time to get ready for another busy week~ironing and packed lunches here I come, I can hardly contain my excitement!!

Still on a positive note I am thankful to of had such a lovely time.

Happy Sunday everyone.❤️x


Fabulous View

As well as Christmas approaching we also have some birthdays coming up too.

Yesterday we took a trip to Portsmouth for our very first visit to Emirates Spinnaker Tower as a surprise for my lovely boyfriends birthday.

It was a cold but clear day and the view was fab. We went to the first level and took in all the scenery particularly the good view of all the boats and ships. The sky was full of beautiful colours. I had a little peek at the glass floor but wasn’t quite enough to give it a try~although lots of others did!

Next stop was the Clouds bar were we simply had to sit and have coffee and chocolate cake whilst taking in the scenery~we could see for miles and it was great naming the sights that we could see.

Last but by no means least we went up to the sky garden~with its deckchairs and grass it was peaceful and perfect to chill and relax.

Our admission ticket lasted the whole day and allowed us readmission before the tower closed.

As the sun began to set we were lucky enough to see lots of Christmas lights all around us~aswell as seeing all the hustle and bustle of people shopping and the choir singing and dancing. What a lovely day out both festive and good fun for a birthday treat too.

Happy days with more memories made.❤️x
