I had a note in my diary that Saturday the 27th September was this month’s A Day In The Life Link Update so here’s my Saturday!

I honestly can’t remember what time we got up but I’m pretty sure Little Miss was awake at 7am so I brought her through to our bed for a snuggle. Sleepy snuggles on Saturday mornings are the best!

We went to see hubby’s Nain. I hadn’t seen her for a while. She’s now 95 and is doing well all things considered. She’s becoming rather doddery though – keeps starting a story then switching to another in the middle. She sang Old McDonald to Little Miss over and over. Little Miss was a bit bemused!o

Afterwards we decided to go out for lump to what used to be the old Ship pub in Llandrillo. Hubby had heard that it’s been turned into a steakhouse and some of his workmates had said it was great. And it was! It’s now a Hickory’s Smokehouse. It was pure heaven! Little Miss sat with us and was as good as gold eating her food and some popcorn.


We then went into Llandudno so hubby could visit his games shop to buy more Warhammer crap. We went into the chocolate shop next door – I think it’s called Maisie’s. We bought around 6 pieces of chocolates each to have with tea later.


We walked down to the out of town shops and found another Mr Bwns but decided not to buy it since it wasn’t the same colour. We’ve decided to order an identical one off the Internet instead.

After we got home had the chocolates and tea. The rest of the evening was spent doing the usual…. Food, bath for Little Miss, bed for her and then just a bit of relaxing. I managed to play a bit of Sims 3 for the first time in ages! There’s been a lot of talk recently about the new Sims 4 game which I really want but our computer is too slow!

So that was A Day In The Life for September! How was your saturday?

Linking up with The Lotus Creative for Daily Diaries again this week with a recap of the week.

It’s the first time in what feels like months that I’ve actually done a full week of work. In between half days to take Little Miss swimming and funerals and weddings etc I think I haven’t done a full week of work in the last month!

Monday was pretty uneventful. On Tuesday I had to go drop off my cross stitch project for framing so I decided to have lunch by the castle. The framers said it would cost me £28 each to frame and they’ll be ready in a week! I shall post a photo when I get them back! I actually can’t wait to see them all mounted and framed – it’ll be the first time I get a cross stitch project framed. Exciting stuff!

Wednesday saw my Nain (on my Dad’s side) reach the grand old age of 81! I sent a card in the post and phoned her to wish her happy birthday. My Dad had arranged to take her out for a meal – we hadn’t been invited and I’m extremely pissed off with that! We’ll see Nain in a week’s time and she can have her present then – I’ve developed some photos from my cousin’s wedding and framed a photo of her with my Dad and his sister.

On Thursday the dogs had an appointment at the vets for their booster shots and kennel cough injection. Since we are going away next month the pups are off on their holibobs to the kennels and she won’t allow them to stay unless their vaccinations are all up to date. The trip to the vets was erm, fun! Gemma got all panicky for some reason – she’s normally fine so no idea what was up with her yesterday. The vet said that she’s too fat – something we already knew since she eats everything in sight! So we’re now cutting their food to one meal a day.

Today my car was going in for a service at the garage near work. So I had to catch the bus for the last mile or so of my journey. My friendly bus driver was on duty this morning so I got to have a catch up with him. Work was the usual. Hubby phoned me after lunch to say the he’d lost Mr Bwns!! This was a DISASTER since Little Miss will only nap with him! So I spent a few minutes to see if I could order a new one but got distracted by the fact that there are tons of different versions! I guess Little Miss will be collecting these! Here’s a few of my favourites!


This evening we had faggots, chips and cauliflower/brocolli cheese for supper and it was super yummy! Mmmmmm! Took dogs for a walk. Little Miss had a bath and went to sleep quite early. We then sat down and watched some Pointless. We have two weeks worth of episodes to get through! So currently I’m watching the 3 episode with a cup of tea and an egg custard tart. Megs and Gemma are snuggled up on the sofa with hubby. Ahhh happy days!

How has your week been?
