A Week In Review


While we were out on our walk a couple of weeks ago (I know, I'm just a wee bit behind in my posts!!) I saw these snowdrops just starting to peek their heads up. 
I think there might just be a good crop this year if all of these buds are anything to go by.  
Note to self - I must remember to go back in a while just to see if there is!!!


So, since I've not been around much these last few days (shame on me) I thought I'd do a round-up of last weeks news.  

I had quite a good and fun week last week - which is always good!!! :)

 Last Tuesday Karen, Emma and I took a trip to Silverburn (an indoor shopping centre just outside of Glasgow).  It was Emma's birthday on the 16th - she didn't know what she wanted for a present and I had no idea what to get her - so we went shopping.  The only trouble was she didn't see anything she fancied so she didn't get anything. I have just given her the money so she can get herself something - that seemed like a sensible thing to do.  
We did have a good afternoon though - it's always fun spending time with my girls :))

On Wednesday I went to the cinema with my sis-in-law and one of my nieces, we went to see Les Miserables. 
I have to say - I LOVED it. 
 I didn't think I would but I really did. It was just as well I took a couple of paper tissues with me - it was very sad!!!  
If you haven't been to see it I can totally recommend it!
 
Then on Friday after I finished work I met my mum and sisters and we went for coffee and a blether - we really need to do that more often - it is so good to catch up!!!

Laura and Kevin were through - as you all know - and on Saturday night we went out for dinner - a late family celebration dinner for Emma's birthday.  It was a delicious meal and we all had a good laugh.

So all in all I really enjoyed my week. 
 This week is going to seem so flat after all of that, however next week I have a few days off work - I can hardly wait. I love getting time of work :))

Thanks so much everybody for your lovely comments on my last post with the baby picture. He is kind of cute isn't he!!! :))
