Ooooh chicky, how terrifying 

Hope all goes well for Mr chicky and sorry I didn't count you in the mature ladies Tops Off club.

Any other ladies who frequently drive with their tops off or men, please make yourselves known,  we're ganging up on Dove so she doesn't desert us for Sensible Street

Noooooooooooo Dove  you can't get a sensible car or you'll lose your honorary membership in the Mature Ladies with Tops Off club.  I'll be all on my own then 

Gloriouly sunny day yesterday, (with top off) .didn't get my list of jobs completed as I needed to visit a garden centre for terracotta pots  (with top off). Also snuck in some quality gardening time in the sun (with top off ) before parents sprang a surprise visit  (with top off )

Okay, okay, not all of those descriptions are entirely truthful, I was just trying to put the visual in Dove's head 

I'm a new driver and I worried a lot about not having a sensible first car, but the more I drive my Mazda the more I adore it. It's sooo dinky, I only see where I've parked it by looking through the windows of other cars 

Today is room swap  (with top off )

Gym, shopping, finish flooring, swap two rooms over downstairs, general housework and a large pile of ironing to do today

Just your average day's work

Evening all

Soooooooo tired!

Just finished weekend shifts to feed the 5 thousand (which over ran as usual) ten hrs shifts without break, but they are now paying me that entitlement  minimum wage ofc  but I love my job. I  see this time as counting towards gym so there is some gain...loss! I mean 

I did read back several pages in vain attempt to catch up, oh well, hope all is well 

Tomorrow I must finish the hallway flooring, I'm painfully slow but also perfect at it so OH can no longer feel like the brunt of my criticisms and can appreciate that I am as tough on myself 

Too tired to type more, in the bath while dinner cooks 

It's my birthday

Oooooh Fairy BDay! 


I missed my mum's BDay last week because I was so focused on passing my driving test, my trusty phone sent me the reminder the week after  . Need a new phone me-thinks 

Have a great day Fairy xx

Morning all 

Thanks for all the warm welcome backs! I'm touched that anyone noticed my absence

Last day in bed since I volunteered an extra shift tomorrow so an older lady at work could get away on a weekend break 

Time to take the car for a spin today but no soft-top until the spring now, hubby bought me a hard-top because of the winter weather and although it's parked behind a gate, we need to build a sheltered area really, might go buy myself a cleaning kit,  I've got a bag full of shampoo and polish but my windscreen was shocking when I drove yesterday 

Have a great day everyone

Morning Dove and all to come 

Congratulations to fidget on her big day 

Dropped off the radar for a bit but I will try to show my face sometimes from now on, this face  not this face  or this face  and never this face 

Garden has had to look after itself for a few months, barely had time to tie in the roses but I have bought more tulips and alliums this year,

Started decorating the entire house since finishing one room makes the others look worse , my floor laying skills are actually good! Also passed my driving test on Monday, first time  so I can finally put my feet up yipee, l mean...get out and about shopping lots!

Have a good day all.
