Weekly Wishes #4

It’s that time of the week to join up with the Nectar Collective’s inspirational link-up. Time to create my wishes for the week ahead and reflect on what happened last week, join in – it’s great fun!  So, last week… ok, well maybe we shouldn’t go there! Fail, Fail and fail!  Learn to do a ripple stitch! I bought some colourful wool to practice this technique but haven’t mastered it yet…. the hard work continues!  Sort my wardrobes! Fail…. I’m going on holiday in a couple of weeks, that will give me an excuse to pull out all my clothes…

Anyway, it’s time to join in again with the lovely Nectar Collective’s motivational goal inspiring link-up for the week.  So, how did I get on last week? Eat Healthy! Ummm. Fail!

Last Sunday I was treated to a lovely day out by V-man. As I was starting to feel a bit better we decided to have a little mooch around on the seafront and on the pier, then he took me to a quaint little tearoom he had seen the day before ‘and thought of me’. Sweet.  The Mock Turtle is a quaint little Victorian style tea room tucked away just behind Pool Valley in Brighton.
