The other half's birthday present booked

 The other half's birthday present booked

 Its a special birthday he's 50
I am taking him to Iceland to see the Northern  lights and to go Whale watching.
We will also celebrate 33 years together while we are there. So two birds one stone springs to mind!

 Can't wait till May now, we couldn't go before that as you can't go Whale watching until May.





 As well as candles and flowers I like Mirrors.
Hers one I picked up for a couple of pounds at a car boot last summer.

Pinch, Punch first of the month.

Pinch, Punch first of the month.

This is what people say in England on the first of the month, its meant to bring you luck.
Or some people say White Rabbits again another saying that meant o be lucky.
 Just found this to explain it all........

In England we have a funny tradition for the first day of each month.

  • First we say "Pinch, punch, it's the first of the month!" 
  • Then we give somebody a small pinch and a light punch on the arm.
  • We can do this on first day of every month.
If we follow this by saying white rabbit it means the receiver of the pinch punch can't return the saying and pinch punch us back!
This is a funny little tradition usually only done by kids or younger people. I remember that sometimes the punch from my school friends was a little more painful than it should have been, but boys will be boys!

White rabbit!

Do you have any little traditions for the first day of the month?
What are they?

New Phone

New Phone

I am thinking of getting a new phone. I currently have a blackberry which I like and find easy to use.


 But I can't get a lot of apps on it that I want.
Now do I get an I phone or not. What do people think ? What's the best phone ?

Well Its Hospital day.

Well Its Hospital day.

I have to go back to the hospital today to see the surgeon and have some physio. Lets see if all this rest   with a growing blanket on my lap has helped. I  have found all this resting very difficult, I am not a natural rester. I like to be busy doing things and I have so much to do because we are going on holiday shortly.
So lets hope I can take the brace off and get on and do.
Hope you all have a great day!!

Well the leg brace is  off YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
