I'm still here! I have had a visitor for a week while P was away in Mull. T came to stay last Saturday and left on Friday. We had a great week (well, I did, hope she did too.) Saturday afternoon I took her shopping for new fluffy slippers! On Sunday we went to Speke Hall in Liverpool and visited P's parents. Monday I took her to the Blue Planet Aquarium where she had a good look at the red bellied piranahs and stroked a ray. On Tuesday we went to Tatton Hall and wandered around the lovely gardens before visiting the house. Wednesday we spent in Chester. Thursday I had to work but i came home to a beautifully cooked meal and a glass of wine all ready for me!
T went home on Friday and P returned Friday evening. This Saturday I had my hair professionally coloured for the first time. It's so grey now that the home kits don't really work well. Anyway, I'm pleased with how it looks. After that we've been clearing out closets in S's room and rearranging the furniture so she has more space. A good opportunity to de-clutter generally. Tomorrow we need to clear out the garage, it has so much "stuff" in there I can hardly get in to go to the dryer or the freezer. I love a good de-clutter session. Sad, I know. I also got rid of some clothes. I am making a resolution NOT to make any more impulse clothes purchases. They never work out.
I am also trying to lose a few pounds before the Venice trip on May 13th. Those Italians are all so thin as well as being so stylish. I've been quite good and disciplined today so here's hoping i can stick to it. In fact, i think i'll nip upstairs and do a few stomach crunches and side bends.
Apparently M and I are going to have our own Pacts this quarter. I wonder what AM and T have got in store for us?? M, are you SCARED????
