Maja and Magnolia Winner ♥

It's been a busy old week to say the least.
We've worked longer hours on our week off work than we do when in work...but it's been a fabulous (if tiring) break.
We have achieved most of what we'd planned with the exception of the boiler. The engineer phoned to say it couldn't be done this week but they would book it in for the week before Christmas...not on your bloody Nellie!
I have enough to do without the disruption of the boiler being replaced so we've delayed it until after Christmas now.

On Wednesday we picked up our passports and headed over the border into Yorkshire to see the lovely Christine and the equally lovely Barry. We had such a fabulous time but the day just vanished! We had lunch  and lots of laughs in a very nice pub and I think we just chatted the day away.
The drive there was longer than usual due to accidents on the motorway, but the drive home was even worse! Next time I shall just pack a suitcase and stay the week ha! 

On Thursday we went to Bury to do some Christmas shopping and met my Mum and Dad for lunch.
We had another lovely day out and got an awful lot of the Christmas shopping done.
I am going to spend the weekend wrapping all the gifts and writing cards in the hope that by the time I go back to work on Monday I will have (almost) conquered  Christmas :)

Unfortunately, most nights it's been anything from 10pm to 11pm before we've been sitting down and so I've not ventured into blogland until tonight...for that I apologise....but I am here with the candy winner.

Mr Random picked the number...

Congratulations not the Christine I went to visit but t'other Christine (Nana seaside)

  14. Hi Sweetheart, glad to hear you had a fabulous week, bit unfortunate with the boiler though, and can understand why you dont want it started before Xmas, lets hope it behaves till afterwards.
    We still have the scaffolding up and Ive been assured its to come down before Xmas, but theyve removed the barge board from the roof and its whistling through like no ones business and having no guttering the windows are filthy. hugs Shirleyxx
