Up to date!!

Finally i am up to date.
With a broken foot, it has been hard to take photos, as i have either been in the house, or not taken the camera out with me. So the last few weeks i have mainly taken pics of new things in the house:

I bought this mat from one of my favourite home/gift shops near me:

Gorgeous breakfast bowl from TKMaxx and a Homebase plant:

Our new Next sofas, and bargain cushions from poundstretcher:

TKMaxx washing basket:

Poundstretcher plantpot and plant spray from Past times sale:

I loved this happy sign from a new range in Clinton cards:

Olive oil pourer from a local shop and utensils pot £3.00 from pound stretcher:

Broom, bucket and mop from Homebase:

Box for pens from the above gift shop at View Garden centre:

Lisa Stickley chopping board in the sale at Debenhams:

I am such a fan of Primas free calendars: i love the gorgeous pictures. New £2 pin board painted in duck egg blue:

My old plastic scales were well past their best. So i treated myself to these from Argos:

For mine and my hubbies 30th we had a belated trip to Brighton with friends. Despite my broken foot (not great on a clubbing weekend!!) and terrible rain, we still all had fun:

Big old catch up part 2

Here are some more pics, again, not particularly in order:

A local free magazine. Full of huge, but very tacky houses!!! Getting me excited about seeing Take That soon!!!

A view from the window:

PS3 racing car game addict!!

My loo!! I have an old fashioned loo - so exciting. Come on girls, i know you'll understand!!!

My broken foot!! I was ment to be going to Wireless in Hyde park as a V.I.P. Instead i went to A&E!!!

This get well card made me chuckle:

The dreaded stairs!!!!! This is where i fell and broke my foot:

Sleepy/poorly little one:

I want a party just like this one:

My new magazine rack with the third issue of Mollie Makes. I am gutted that i couldn't find the first one :(

New kitchen flooring. We found original tiles under the old lino, but they weren't in very good conditon:

I still got to go to the Take That concert. I was in a bit of pain and it was very hard work getting up the stairs but Wembley were really good. They took me in a wheelchair to and from my car and they moved me to the front of our block so i could see when everyone stands up:

My new best friend - The smelly boot!!

This is what happens when you let your gay Brother in Law spend time with your youngest son:

I couldn't manage without this: Although i can use crutches, i don't have the strength to go far in them. I never realised how much they hurt your hands. And all my other muscles are hurting too. I used this all around Brighton last weekend - it was a godsend, but at the same time it has totally opened my eyes to how hard it is for people in wheelchairs. There are steps everywhere, not everywhere has downstairs toilets and doorways are really narrow:

Right i have almost caught up with my Year of 30 pics. This takes us up to the 14th July - more coming soon
