Had a great weekend

Spent the weekend in Nottinghamshire and had a great time. We spent Saturday with ma and pa, and a delicious Chinese take out in the evening... followed by yummy scrummy chocolate birthday buns.
Sunday we met bessie mate Annie, her husband Rob and their beautiful girlie, Lola at Rufford park. The dogs has a whale of a time running about chasing sticks, and it was great to see Lola toddling about being all independent. We then went back to their house and had a nice relaxed day... Oliver loves it there and was quite adamant that he didn't want to leave... I think the jumbo chalks and chalk board had a lot to do with it...LOL!!!

So once again I manage to escape the trauma of self portrait Saturday... he he he!!! I am around next weekend though, so will have to think about how to present myself this time!!!
Today's HSMS prompt is to take a piccie of your favourite window. I love Harry's bedroom window... well not actually the window as it is just a bog standard upvc one, but I love the thing on a spring that hangs in the window. We bought the wooden mouse at the European christmas markets last November.

Now don't laugh... but tonight I am starting... RUNNING!!! Well to be fair it will probably be more a case of occasional jogging between lots of puffing and panting!!! I want to do a charity run next year, but at the moment I wouldn't be able to run for a bus never mind run a race. So tonight I will start to build up my fitness levels, in an effort to do my bit for charity. I'm going to take the dog with me so that I have an excuse in case I am spotted by anyone I know... OMG what am I doing?!?!? I am so unfit... i'm likely to need oxygen by time I get in!!!

Fab pic Lou, we've got a springy lion like that :D. Good luck on the running. I should do something like that but I'm too lazy! xx

I love that springy mouse too!

Good luck with the running! If you follow a training plan, you'll be running quite a distance before you know it. By the time my thyroid probs put paid to my training, I was running for 5 miles non-stop and had only been training for a couple of months!

Aww such a nice window, and nice to capture a pic of how it looks right now - I remember having lovely bits and bobs like that when my children were younger. Well done on the running, sounds far too healthy to me though!

Lovely window so cute - just wait until he's older! Good luck with the running. I must get back into it again I stopped when I broke my toe in August and never started again. We have a treadmill so I don't have to run in public!
