As I said earlier, we went to The Broadway for lunch again today. Emily and I picked Mum and Dad up and we met Jon, Mike, Kyle & Emma down there. Saturday lunch time means a game of pool for them :). Chris, at the pub, organised a table for the eight of us and we had an enjoyable meal and a chance to catch up. These photos are mainly for my sister Norma, so she can see her boy is fit and well and as handsome as ever ;) (sorry Kyle!). Mum and Kyle
A couple of Kyle
Kyle's girlfriend, Emma. Even if I say so myself Emma, I really like this photo of you!
It was lovely to see you both again and we'll definitely have to meet up more often.


Sorry if you're fed up seeing the kittens, feel free to skip this post if you are ;). I can't believe we've had them three weeks already - this time next week we can start letting them out; yikes!! I think Mac would love to go outside to explore. He's sat looking out the door a few times today! Not too long now.
Bellatrix was also looking out the door but from a more comfortable position ;) This chair is at the end of my desk
And one a little bit closer because she is so pretty!

Carrying on yesterday :)

I didn't get round to blogging again yesterday evening but I did carry on taking photos :). While I was in town yesterday I popped in to, the now reopened after the fire, WH Smiths. The shop has been changed around slightly but nothing drastic and it was good to be able to go back in again. They had the latest of the Crochet partworks and I decided to buy it. As it comes with some wool, I started crocheting the latest block for the sample throw you're supposed to make (if you buy all the issues). It was quite different to any crocheting I've done before - a rib pattern - and I finished it off last night. Jane, have you given up on crocheting now or do you want the pattern? ;)There's a pattern for some crocheted boxes using this stitch which I may try and make. If I get that far I'll show them on another blog post.
Emily was feeling energetic last night and did some WiiFit. She did 20 minutes of step on it (which came to over 1800 steps) as well as other exercises. I think the Kung Fu one was probably her favourite. Good going Emily!
Claire was also energetic last night and went to the gym with her boyfriend. They signed up this week and have been twice so far. I'm not too happy with the fact that they haven't had an induction and have been told they can go ahead and use the machines. Whenever I've joined a gym before (but I never last which is why I don't have a gym membership anymore) they've always said you have to be shown how to use all the machines properly before you're allowed to go on them by yourself. Apparently this isn't the case at this gym! No names mentioned!
And finally after seeing a number of people saying how much they enjoyed this book I got Claire to get me a copy. I started reading it last night and found I kept wanting to read just one more of the letters and then one more after that, until I had to just mark my place and close the book. It's different to my normal chick lit ;) and I'm enjoying it.
Today got off to a slow start but I'll be going out in about half an hour to pick up Mum and Dad to take them to The Broadway for lunch with Kyle and Emma. I know it looks like we go to The Broadway every Saturday for lunch but that honestly isn't the case; the last three weeks have been the exception rather than the rule, lol!
Hope you enjoy your weekend (and Valentines Day if you celebrate it). We're also looking forward to a week of not having to get up early next week as Emily is now on half term break - yippee!!
