Saturday afternoon, chilling with my man, can't be bad can it?
Spent the morning up at Crabapple for a coffee morning, very nice it was too despite Rosemary's lack of voice.
Came back full of idea's.

This week has been very social for me. it is either a feast of a famine when it comes to socialising with me.  I don't go out for weeks then it is three nights in a row.  This happened this week.

Tuesday I went over to Chester to meet one of my very favourite bloggers Marie.  She had a Pampered Chef party and I really enjoyed it, ordered a couple or few things;)  but didn't really get much time with Marie, which was a shame.  She did however show me some of her delightful drawings for a big project she has on the go. I cannot wait for it all to come together.  We will be getting together soon though and I am looking forward enjoying some of her cooking:)

Wednesday night I was round at my daughters for a natter, that is always great.
Thursday night was Curry night with Norma, Jean, Lorraine and Ann, always a good night, especially when Ann gets tiddly.

Yesterday my gorgeous Emily came to to some scrap booking and was supposed to stay over.  But at 7:30pm the tears started and she wanted her mummy. Since she was ill she will not sleep over anywhere, we thought she was making progress when she agreed to stay last night, but alas it was not to be. The problem is, we are taking Emily, Jessica and Jazmine on holiday in June and we need to get her  into a different mindset before then.  Has anyone out there got any idea's for encouraging her?  I would be grateful for any realistic thoughts.

Well I am off to enjoy the rest of the weekend with Ralph, hope you have a good one.

Em might be different if she is one of the girls rather than on her own. Just tire her out every day and she will fall asleep no problem........
Sounds like you had a great week. Love you and see you again quite soon ( as long as the Jury Service does not need me for more than 4 days!!!!

You got to meet Marie!! I love her blog and what fun it must have been. I was just reading about her Pampered Chef Party and wishing I could have been there. Love and hugs!

just saying hi!

Marie said...

I was so thrilled to get to meet you Sheilagh! You were even lovelier in person than you are on here! (True!) I, too, wished that we could have had some more one on one time, but we will make sure that the next time we are together it will be just us, oh and maybe the men eh? I am really looking forward to it! Will be in touch. What is your schedule for the coming week? E-mail me!

By the way, dearest, I have a Blog Award for you!

Hi Sheilagh, sounds like you've had a lovely week and fun at Rosemary's. I think your bezzy is right and Emily will be fine when the others are around.
