Hello Monday

  • Hello to meeting up with a friend I haven't seen for far too long.  We only live about 10 miles from one another but it seems to take forever to find a date that we are both free.
  • Hello to waving off our daughter for a short trip to Spain.  If I say 'The Only Way is Marbs' - I think the UK bloggers who have heard of TOWIE will know where she is off to.  It's a friend's hen weekend and much planning has been going on.  Not to mention fake tans, fake nails and fake eyelashes! 
  • Hello to hopefully tracking down another Scavenger Hunt photo.  I had a successful weekend:
Coco is always up for a nap so that was an easy one.  I also have an alternative of this that I put on Instagram, I'm not sure which will make it to the final 'cut'!  Then on Saturday my husband and I were in the car and I had a sudden brainwave that there was an old windmill in one of the villages near us. It was built in 1787 so it's a wonder that there is anything left but it looks remarkably well preserved!  Then I was out on a dog walk and discovered that there were quite a few people out fishing - how very convenient.  But hard to take a decent photo on a phone camera with a dog pulling on the lead.
  • Hello to another busy week at work.  Trying to organise 160 five minute long meetings for the new girls joining us in September.  It's a logistical nightmare!
  • Hello to being able to finally share the news about my work colleague who has not only appointed an agent, but has signed publishing deals in the UK, Italy, Germany and Holland.  So exciting!  Her book will be out in print by November, needless to say there will be a book signing event in the office.

What wonderful news for your friend! So exciting!
Well done on the fisherman photo ~ can't think how I'm going to find that one in the heart of the London suburbs!

Congrats to your friend, it must be wonderful to have that happen to you. Well done with the Scavenger Hunt. The windmill is the one that I will struggle with.

Congrats on finding the windmill. I've already decided the only way I am likely to come across one is if I include paintings & even then probably I am going to have to catch a photo of a tv show where there was a windmill.

Oh that's so fun about your friend's book! :o) And I love seeing your scavenger hunt photos, Debs. I took one of Whiskers napping yesterday - after Doug made me promise not to take one of him while sleeping. LOL.

I love catchup time with friends. Fake tan, nails and lashes sound like a lot of glam girls having fun :) Can't believe you already have a windmill, that's the one that will do me in.

Splendid news and I am sure we will be hearing more! You're streaking ahead on this scavenger hunt - I like that windmill angle very much.

Great news about your friend. Good going on the pictures. I think a windmill is going to be a tough one for me, but I've got my substitute just in case.
