Finally got back into the blogspot!!!!!

Hello peeps!!!!

Yep, its me again....finally!!! I've been trying to get back into blogger since changing internet providers a month or so ago; damn websearch kept telling me that I did not exist, LOL!!!

We had a lovely week in Scotland at the end or March/beginning April; the weather was glorious and we did not want to come home!!!! We are definitely going back next spring as the accommodation was wonderful and Sascha loved the was huge and definitely Sasha sized!!!
Now back from our holiday, 1 month on and I am feeeling the need for another holiday, LOL!!! Got to wait till the end of September though when we are off to Devon. I used to go there a lot as a child......annually up until I was 15, then a couple of times since but not for the last 20 years so I am really looking forward to going back to see a lot of old doubt a lot has changed but we shall see, plus it will be nice to take Robbie to a lot of the places I have visited in the past!
We were going to be going out for the day today, but Rob was offered overtime so work comes first as overtime is a rareity these days!!! I don't mind cos it is raining so we would not have been able to do much after all, so I am doing some washing and catching up with the husework..........once I have finished this entry of course!!!
The weight loss is still going on and now stands at agrand total of 4stone which has been achieved mainly through Slimming World!!!! I have such a great consultant, she is so helpful and inspirational which is a great help, some consultants are only in it for the money...........K just wants to help us all lose the 1lbs and she has certainly done that for me!!
I am relieved cos my plum tree is beginning to show signs of life again, thank heavens!!!! At the end of the last season after we had loads of plums, I asked my dear husband just to prune it back a bit (the branches were going over the back fence big time and overall was getting straggly), I did not bargain for him pruning the tree back within an inch of its life........daft man had chopped it back that far that I had visions of the poor tree not surviving!!!! Fortunately it has sprung back into life but sadly there will not be any fruit this year I don't think..............shame because the plums are the best I have ever tasted, but I am sure the ones next year will be worth the wait!!!
I did a car boot sale with our Kevin yesterday, the forecast was for sunshine, what they failed to omit was the fact there was likely to be a cold wind!!! So from 6.15 yesterday morning the day got gradually colder despite the sun coming out, and I went home very, very cold at midday and could not get warm for the rest of the day and combined with being very tired, I just vegged on the sofa for the rest of the day; I felt bad 'cos Rob and I were due to have gone to a local vintage transport show in the afternoon when I got home but sad to say it did not happen - there will be another one at the end of May so we will no doubt go to that permitting!!!
Anyway, I am off to find some lunch before tackling some ironing, it is like a chinese laundry here today!!!!! I will definitely be back sooner this time, now I have got back into the site.......which is now bookmarked with this server now!!! Take care everyone and I will be back soon.
