recycling teabags !!!! lmao ....

Hi guys....

Its been a busy couple of days with my uncle Frank staying with us. His daughter Josie, (my cousin) bought him up to us on Sunday, and I have just took him back to Northampton today. He is a delightful little Irish man, and is such a laugh. He has the ability to turn everything into laughter, and it was good fun having him stay. I have never known anyone to drink as much tea as he does, we even (for a joke) resorted to recycling tea-bags on the washing line !!! Neighbours must have thought we were barmy !!! (see photo!!).

Going back to my post the other day with the sad news of my ex father-in-law passing away, I have now been informed that I will be more than welcome at the funeral as they know that he would have wanted that. This piece of news bought a lump to my throat, and Im pleased to be able to attend and pay my respects to a dear and wonderful man, bless him. Not sure when it is going to be yet, but I'm guessing Monday or Tuesday of next week. I know my girls are all going to find this very difficult. He was a grandad in a million and a very big part of their lives. I'm glad I can be there for them.

WW wise....I'm hanging in there just !!! Having company is hard when it comes to the nibbles...!! We had a small BBQ on Sunday when uncle Frank and Josie were here which I managed only just to stay in control of only having 2 sausages and one small burger and salad, then yesterday went to mums for lunch and she did mountains of cheese and onion and corned beef and onion sandwiches and cakes..... since then I have been so longing for a thickly buttered , thickly cut mature cheddar cheese sandwich, but so far so good and I haven't given in to it....just dribbling at the thought of it though. This is quite unusal for me to feel like this. I dont usually crave sandwiches, but I suppose they just looked sooooooo good . All I had instead was ryvita with a very small bit of cheese on and some onion....wasn't quite the same as a gorgeous, yummy, thickly buttered .... TINA STOP IT !!!!!! Im just torturing myself now..lol :OP

Anyhows, hope your all ok. Thank you for the lovely comments you leave on my blog. Its nice to know there are people out there that read this.....and I love reading your blogs. Having had company the last couple of days, I have not been able to get on the computer much but its nice to be back to it !! Have had a play around with my header aswell.... I think the fairy is really pretty.... what do you think ? TTFN guys....... xx
