Project 365 week 7

Been a lazy week as I am really in a can not be bothered mood. Tv watching while doing my cross stitching and walks with the dog to break ours and her day up. Have had quite a bit of snow this week, but luckily none of it stayed for long.


Sunday

No overtime this week so the usual walk with the dog after work. It is quite nice to get out normally. But we set foot out the door with a blue sky and within less than two minutes we had a total white out with snow. Twenty minutes of a walk and nearly two inches of snow had fallen.


winter is still here 


Monday

Had won a prize back in November from musclefood it turned up today but had cost me £1.50 in excess postage as they underpaid on it, prize itself was worth less than £2 so I was not at all amused. Have pm'd them on Facebook and they offered me £10 off of an order, but need to spend more than £10 before I can claim the discount and also need to pay postage. Apparently they did this to quite a few others as well. Others got offered higher amounts but regardless it is not acceptable policy and I feel well conned.


excess postage to pay 



Tuesday

DD1's birthday. We have a firm believe in our family that a birthday is not a birthday without a cake. So Fifi had said she was going to make her mum a Harry Potter cake, but she went away for a long weekend and then went to her friends overnight on Monday. So DD3 messaged me to ask me to pick one up for her, so we got another picture cake from Intercake, their cakes taste great, are good value for money and you can personalise it with a picture of your choice and then add borders, writing etc.

I feel cake decoration manufacturers should make + and - signs so she could have had 40-1, just cos I am rotten like that....lol

Happy birthday DD1 




Wednesday

Blew a gale and snowed on and off most of the day. So got in plenty of cross stitching and competition entering done. Dixie loves to spend time sitting in the sun (when it comes out) on the back of the couch. Does tend to woof a bit at some of the people passing but not at them all.

Thursday

This little madam likes to chew anything she can pick up, and likes to pick up lots of things. Today she decided she would start on this mornings post.

Little Madam!!!



Friday

Have had a few nasty patches of eczema on the palms of my hands for about three months now. Nearly gone, an awful lot better than they have been. Been using steroids twice a day and a good quality moisturiser about thirty times a day. No wonder parents cannot get children cleared up as I never thought to moisturise my kids every half  hour when they had flare ups. Being on my hands does not help right enough as getting wet regularly.

I like this cream 




Saturday

DD2, SIL2, Ziggy and the dog down for a few hours today, going out tonight and then back here to sleep. We went for a walk down the park to exercise the dogs and get Ziggy some fresh air and exercise
Was a good test for Dixie having more than one person and another dog here at the same time. She was popped into her cage with the door left open for her a few times for getting herself distressed but calmed down quickly enough and came back out when she wanted too.

  1. I have eczema on my hands too, so literally feel your pain! On bad days they end up so swollen I can barely bend my fingers and I have about 30 cuts on them. I'm constantly moisturising too!
    I can't believe how quickly that snow fell! I would have been very annoyed about the prize and the postage.

  2. I've seen that quite a few have been caught out by Musclefood. Very naughty of them. Hope you get something out of them.

    1. Yes there was a fair few of us caught out, sadly it gives them a bad reputation, but if they do reimburse me I will blog that as well.

  3. You had snow! Lucky you! We haven't had any at all here. Lol @ Little Madam and the morning post for breakfast. I know what you mean by kids and eczema, it is very tricky. My younger one has it on his legs and arms, I tend to emolliate his skin twice a day, and we keep it under some control, but it's a problem. And what a shame about the underpaid postage.

  4. Oh wow! That is a lot of snow...
    Eek! I would be annoyed too about that competition win. It really wasn't much of a win and seems more like a con.
    Happy birthday to your daughter. hehehe The cake sounds fab.
    I hope it wasn't anything important in the letter that Dixie was ripping open x

  6. Oh my goodness that is sho king about the bar you eon and having to pay for postage! I would have just left it. I was once picking up a blog post review of illustrations but from America so they stick on £14 worth of fees. I left them at the post office for about a month before I sorted it all out o was so angry. I 100% agree on the birthday cake theory! #365

    1. sadly did not know who it was from until after I had got it, thought it might have been from DS1 as he has a habit of that

  9. I'm glad Dixie is settling down nicely with other people, oops though to the chewing of the post. My hands have had a couple of flareups from the cold since I've been back in the UK and I keep forgetting to moisturise #365
