So here we are, another weekend has past and we are now into the final countdown for our holiday! We have officially reached the -7 day mark, woo hoo!!
I went for my pre-holiday hair cut on Friday, the dead ends and overly long fringe are now gone and my locks are looking lovely and sleek again. I just need to give myself a rinse of colour and I will be good to go. It was great to see my hairdresser John, especially as he has just got engaged. The wedding is next year and I am already looking forward to it!
On Saturday our team, Millwall were playing at Wembley in the League One playoff final. I decided not to go to the game but Tom went along with my cousins and our nephew and niece. They all met for pre game drinks so I popped along to have a quick one with them before they all headed off. It was a great game and it was pretty close but luckily the Lions won 1-0 so are now promoted to the Championship - happy days!
While Tom was out I started sorting my clothes and picking out what I am taking on holiday. I have tried to pack lightly and make 'outfits' that can be mixed and matched to suit day through to night. I bought some packing cubes from Groupon to use after seeing a picture that a friend had posted of her using them. Now I have to say when they first arrived I was rather skeptical as they looked a little on the small side and rather flimsy. However I am extremely impressed as I have managed to fit everything in!! They are certainly a great way to keep and make your packing/un-packing organized, plus having everything folded neatly into this bags means nothing moves about or gets squished.
I managed to finish another baby C2C (corner to corner) blanket. This one is heading up to Scotland for a friends Grandson. He already has one of my blankets and apparently loves it, hope this one is as big a hit! I really do enjoy making these blankets, they are so simple and easy to create and they seem to crochet up in no time at all.
I did a little blog hopping last week and found a few new ones that I like so I have added these to my side bar and will make sure that I check them out regularly. What are your fave blogs, do you stick to one 'type' or do you like to mix it up a bit?
Anyway I hope that you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by to read, I really do appreciate it and I love it when I get a comment.
Love and hugs,
