To save money, and because it's nicer if I have the time, I handmade my mums birthday and mothers day cards from scrap card, lentils, linseeds and sunflower seeds. The birthday one especially I was pretty pleased with!
Last night we went to see the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra perform a night called Heroes and Legends which played alsorts of fantastic film music with the highlights for me being Harry Potter (outstanding live performance), magnificant 7, Raiders of the lost arc and a brilliant piece called summon the heroes, which was a piece written by John Williams for the 1996 Olympics. It was very moving music.

New Years Resolutions don't seem to be very popular anymore, but I love setting myself goals for the coming year. It gives me something to focus on and work towards. I will do a round up of the last year and celebrate the last year as this one comes to a close as well as make plans for the next one. I don't always complete my goals but I like to feel like I'm moving forward and I like a challenge!
Has anyone else completed any challenges this year or making any goals or plans for 2017? I'd love to hear if you are :) I'll share mine soon. Right must get going, today I am working til 2pm, then walking my Cinnamon Trust dogs then on to medicate my friends cat then home to have a tidy up etc then driving to town to pick up dh from the bus station as he's been away for a couple of days.
Have a good day :)

I am exhausted! It's been a really busy week. People at work are on holiday or off sick so I have worked 58 hours this week. I work with the public and am very busy all day so I do feel very tired when I do lots of extra hours. It's very draining. After work every day I have then been going over to an elderly friends to medicate her cat for her as he is unwell and she cannot do it herself. She is lovely and always asks me to stay for a chat and a cup of tea which is lovely, but sometimes means I do not get in til 8-9pm at night. I have to leave for work at 7-30am so there's not much time to do anything when I get in before I fall into bed! I also pulled a muscle in my back friday doing heavy lifting.
Yesterday I was working the morning, followed by clearing at the allotment followed by cat duty followed by going to the cinema with DH to see the new Star Wars film. I've never seen any of them but DH loves it.
This morning i got up late (7.30am) and have done very little except sit and do loads of reading in the quiet. Bliss! Dh even made me breakfast! In about half an hour we are going for a walk even thought it's very foggy. This afternoon will be visiting friends about an hour away followed by cat duty.
Another busy week this week but hopefully less work so will be a bit better.

Frozen blackcurrants (from our allotment- hopefully they keep away the colds!)
Raw almond butter (I don't add sugar so a bit of nut butter adds a bit of yum!)
