It could be you....

It was me.......

I won the lottery in December and all due to a twist of fate. I'm not a massive believer in fate or what comes around goes around although, those are the sort of things which everybody says or partially believes. I have had to have a bit of a change of heart though.

There I was in WHSmiths, early December, queueing to put my lottery numbers on. My well worn ticket with my usual numbers was neatly folded in my hand awaiting scanning. I always put just one line on for saturdays and usually do 4 weeks at a time, it's all there, ready prepared on my ticket. I don't know why I bother really because I have only won about 3 lots of 10 since the bloody thing started.

My turn came and I gave...

A funny thing happened in Fendi.

This is a bit of a catch up from last year. For anyone who has read the 'Wobbly Tour' thread in User Photos, you will know what a superb time we had in Australia last January. It wasn't all plain sailing though because my holidays never are. The travel arrangements went swimmingly but my financial arrangements took a sharp downturn on the very first day of the holiday and I had to rapidly resort to plan B.

It all started in Hong Kong, we had a stopover on our way to Sydney, just for one night. Hong Kong is a brilliant city and a shoppers paradise. For anyone who loves to get an electrical bargain or a designer bargain, this is the place to go, honestly, you can be Gucci, Fendi and Manolo'd to death here. I had been saving...

A good old girly day.

I had to go to Manchester today to pick up a pan.......that's right, a pan!!!!! Since Sparks moved in I have turned into a domestic goddess. Ok, the bit about being a domestic goddess is a fib. I still can't abide cleaning up but I have had a bit of success in the cookery department.

People who have read my blog know that I use my oven for storage and the only thing that I have successfully made in the kitchen is a mess or a fire. In the last few months I have learned how to cook a bit and now make a mean Ocean Pie. I have found that the only pans which even I can't stick anything to are the Anolon pans but these are quite expensive.

On Saturday, we went to the Printworks at Manchester to see a film. Before going...

A quick review.

Posted 01-01-2008 at 15:32 by lettie

I am glad that the blogs are back. I really need to re-read mine and do a bit of a catch up of where I left off.
I will do a quick review of 2007 now though and may add to it later.
January... Me and Sparks spent New Year and most of January in Australia. I loved it and we had a fabulous time. What a shame to have to come home.

February... Most of Feb was spent with a great feeling of restlessness and itchy feet. Serious consideration was given to emigrating.

March.... Turned 39...Yikes!!!! Spent most of the month trying to convince myself that I only look 30.

April... Sparks moved in.

May, June & July... Mostly worked, did loads of nights and started saving for our next...

On the up.

Phew!!! What a week...

Not one to be easily beaten, I made a last ditch effort with the Christmas shopping and managed to get most of it done and wrapped. I have only about 4 more pressies to buy and I'm all done. I have also got November and December's birthdays (7 in total), all done. I just have to sort out January's now, as I will be away for those and need to get sorted.

I have bought my new suitcase for the hols and have now sorted all accommodations, flights and car hires. Quite a bit of the stuff is already paid for so that will reduce the amount we have to pay when we get there. I am now concentrating on saving some spending money. I have definitely inherited my dad's ability to save up and not get into...
