Catch up (& my giveaway winner).

24.9.11

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all had a good week. We have had a great week off work. I hope you have enjoyed the "day off" posts I've been doing (if you missed them you can see them here: one, two, three, four, five, six and seven). Day six at Chatsworth House was my favourite day.

There won't be any more dedicated day off posts as yesterday was a kind of chores day, going to the dentist and such. Not very exciting at all. Last night we stayed in and finished off series 5 of '24', had a mahoosive cantonese takeaway and then snuggled under my Slanket with Lily and Lola.

This morning we popped to Meadowhall as I needed a few bits and pieces, and this afternoon I've got some orders to get together and a letter to write before seeing my friend this evening. Tomorrow I am cooking for Jonathan (should be interesting) and preparing myself to go back to work on Monday!

My giveaway has now closed and a winner has been picked at random..... that winner is Kit-Cat-Kitty-Cat. I will send the ring out to you asap. Thanks so much to everyone who entered. I love holding giveaways so I will definitely have another one very soon.

Other things that have happened this week: we had tea in Chapel Allerton on Wednesday night with my parents to celebrate my Dad turning 60, I received my parcel from my new American penpal, Alexandra, and I literally jumped up and down when I saw it had arrived (receiving parcels is brill!) and we have spent lots of time with Lily and Lola. They have enjoyed having us around more I think.


Baby Ruth chocolate bars are amazing and I always eat my own body weight in them when I go to America on holiday. I am going to get working on my return parcel this weekend and fill it with lots of fab English-y stuff! 

If you can think of anything I must include do let me know in the comments. Thanks!
