Enjoying the sunshine!

Hi everybody,

Well I haven't posted on here since last week because I've been spending a lot more time outside in the sunshine! Rose and I took a trip back to Dorset whilst Ray was working long shifts in A&E all weekend. We had the Most lovely time and were so lucky with the weather! I think there must have been a heat wave going on because it felt like the height of summer and it's still only April..! Was very nice to get a little bit of a tan though. : )

I had 4 days back in Dorset and I spent it relaxing, catching up with friends and family and we also went down to West Bay for one afternoon. So lovely in the sunshine and Rose's first trip to the sea!

Since having Rose I found my weight creeping up ever so slightly every week and even though I know I'm not huge, I wanted to nip it in the bud right away so I joined my local Slimming World which is very handily right around the corner from me. I've been going for 3 weeks now and had a bit of a boost this week as I was 'Slimmer of the week'! Sounds rather silly, but has been brilliant motivation for staying away from chocolate goodies this week!

I recieved a gorgeous bunch of flowers and card for my first Mothers day as an actual mother! I was very impressed that at the tender age of 2 and a half months, Rose managed to go out to buy them for me..!

I've spent the last two day's having a complete blitz of the garden, my Nan gave me loadsss of plants from her own garden ready to put into mine and I took a trip to Morrisons whilst I was there and got myself some lovely plants. It's such good value for money getting them in there, as plants at garden centre's around here are generally pretty expensive.. I'll have to take some pics and put them up on my blog soon.

I've been working away on the hexagon blanket but have taken a little break from it and begun another project..surprise surprise! I'm currently adding more and more ripple stripes to my baby ripple blanket.. I've gone for really lovely and bright colours and I really do Love it so far. (picture's to follow..)

Right, I'll leave you with a lovely photo of Rosebud
