    Fab 5's 23rd December 2016

    Sorry this is a bit late in the day

    Can you believe it's Friday again already? So... It's time to share our FAB 5's!

    The rules are as always

    • Aim for 5, but no upper or lower limit. Each one is celebrated
    • No negativity allowed.
    Mine to get you started:

    1 Starting new job
    2 A good party for my Sister in Law
    3 Having fun in training
    4 Laughing with Jay and the kids
    5 One of my Favourite films is on in the morning Dr Zhivago

    Seeing my boys midweek
    Them spending some of their pocket money on me
    Marmite and Ferrero Rocher. The two best Christmas gifts EVER!
    Recieved lots of cards in the post this year. Always nice.
    Party last weekend and I survived

    And....thinking about all my amazing friends. I have to pinch myself to make sure it's real.

    I forgot it's Friday!

    - Early Christmas lunch at my brothers, lots of laughs, love and pressies
    - spending time with mum and dad
    - awesome Strictly final
    - been super busy seeing several friends (and even doing some jewellery shopping)
    - being signed off by GP for early retirement
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    And from me:
    1. Lots of cards from lovely people.
    2. Having family and friends round yesterday.
    3. Laughing a lot reminiscing with my best friend.
    4. Spending nearly an hour on the phone with my son Jay.
    5. Now this is weird......watching the baubles turning round on the tree with the lights twinkling, in the dark, and the fire crackling with no tv on. Reminds me of Christmas's past.
