Week Thirty Two

Hope everyone has had a productive week, I have been very busy buying clothes for our Holiday which is a week on Wednesday! I can’t wait now , so this week will probably drag! I never got down to a sixteen so I had to buy a wardrobe full of clothes good job I saved just in case!

Mine and the boys new togs for the hols!

Congrats to Blackpool Football Club for making it to the Play Off Finals again! We have one game standing between us and the Premiership and of all the teams in the Championship it has to be the Hammer, so come pool we believe , take the game too them and lets go back up!

This week I received my last glossybox, I decided to stop this month as most of the products were cremes or hair products and I was thinking this was more of a beauty box with makeup and polish samples , anyways £12 for a product your not happy with has to go, so here is what I got this month , it was a Au natural box which included beauty balm, lip sols, hair serum ,hand creme and an eye pencil!

I may have to take the boy to see this this week also looks very funny!

It has been a lazy time in the Procky house this week as you can see by the animals in the pic below!

Here are my photo’s for the 366 challenge!

One last thing come Man City you can do it and Good Luck this afternoon lets knock United of the top once and for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Week Twenty Eight

Not a lot to report this week, I had quite a bit of overtime at work so when I wasn’t there I was catching up on sleep, but I did manage to get a photo shoot in with the cats they do show off you know!

Here is a couple more shots of the day of Boo this cat knows when to play at the camera!

I love this one, he loves sticking his tongue out at me!

Took Bella a walk on a different route today via a local park and came across this I love finding quirky things like this!

And here is Bella chewing up a stick, plenty of fiber in this dogs diet!

And in honor of my furry boys! Here is a video compilation of one of my favourite musicals, I went to see this at the New London theater in 1980 , on the second week it showed Brian Blessed , Elaine Paige, Wayne Sleep, Paul Nicholas and Bonny Langford headlined , I even got to hold some kittens (real) in the interval, I felt so honored at the young age of 10 years experiencing this phenomenal show  , I thought I would share it with you all!

And finally here are my 366 photo’s from this week hope you like , if you want to know the stories behind the pic click on my flickr link.

Thanks for Reading and Hope you have a great week!

Week Nineteen

A week where temperatures dropped below -8,  Blackpool Football Club got through to the 5th round in the FA Cup,  Whitney Houston died, my Valentines day glossybox arrived and We took my friends granddaughter ice-skating for the first time ever.

I haven’t tried anything from the box this month,  at first glance I am quite happy with what I received, although when I look at what other people have received , I am disappointed I didn’t get the nail polish as that is what I stipulated on my beauty profile will give next month a try before I decide what to do at a later date.

This weekend was going to be a lazy one I was going to swatch some nail polishes for my nail blog and maybe watch me some Game of Thrones and read me some books, but I ended up taking Evie, Robyn and Lexi Ice-Skating, I was going to stand around and spectate and be annoying and take loads of photographs which I did indeed do! but little Lexi had other plans, bless her she was absolutely petrified of the ice , she went on for about a Milli second and no more, so here are a couple of photographs!

Sub Zero @ Cleveley’s

To cheer Lexi up we went on to the beach here are some more photographs.

And here are my next six pics from my 366 challenge , remember if you want to know the story behind the pics click on my flickr link at the side!

This week Whitney Houston died so here is one of my favourite songs from the eighties by her !

Week Sixteen

The week started out painful and ended painful but hopeful the pain will be worth it!

Monday was the day my major dental work started, I had two teeth at the front of my mouth removed and a sticky bridge put in to fill the gap, already there is a huge difference, so let the smiling commence, I have still got some work to be done but at least the worst is over! I may put a pic up of my smile in future posts we will have to see.

On Thursday I went for my Induction at the Gym, I haven’t stepped foot in a gym in nearly twenty plus years but seeing as I have managed to put two stone on since I quit smoking, I figuered it was time for it come off, but I bet it doesn’;t come off as fast, anyway I thought I did well, broke out in a seweat a few times not from the exercise bby trying to work the machines WOW things have changed.

I am a bit sore but enjoyed it and I decided to go again today which was great as it loosened my muscles up!

Went on a mini walk yesturday took the pooch around herons reach but as it’s like a bog at the moment , we oly got as far as the Zoo so decided to take a detour through Woodland Gardens, it is a lovely hidden gem and great place for me to get some photographs so again for your viewing pleasure some shots of mine and the pooches walk.

This was how the sky looked before our walk the rainbow was whole but I coulnd’t get it all on my shot!

What my Pooch won’t do for a stick!

It was freezing and she kept jumping in and out like it was a hot sunny day!

In better weather I cycle through here and the first time I saw this I fell of my bike scared the poop out of me!

Quirky things are scattered about the place

I think this is a toadstool but seems to have rotted a bit!

Nice snowdrops they were everywhere along with a few early daffies!

And below is the next six photographs for my challenge of a picture a day through 2012.

Week Fifteen

End of the second week of January, going to have to put the brakes on, or it is going to be the second week of June.

The weather has gotten much colder over the last couple of days, but this means that the sun is shining the sky is blue, and walking can commence, It just isn’t any fun walking in rain!

I saw an article on the web about walking in the Lune Valley, which is about a 45 minute drive from me, when I came across a peculiar photograph of trees upside down I had to go and see for myself, the walk itself follows the river lune and can be started at Lancaster or Caton, you walk along what use to be a railway line but be aware it is favourite for cycles and they do like to speed, so we had to keep our eye on Bella as she is quite partial to tyre. I have included a few photographs for your viewing pleasure.

Aqueduct near Halton Lancaster

Start of the walk !

Crook O'Lune

The Boy and Pooch WALKIES!

The Upside down trees and the sleeping trees

There were quirky things like these all the way along this walk

The boy thinks he can walk on water

This bridge holds a piece of the M6 and I love the lights!

Below is a montage of photographs I took for my 366 challenge this week, click on my flicker at the side for the reason behind the photographs, I have a busy week of happenings this coming week so I will hopefully have plenty to tell you so TTFN’

Week 2 of the 366 Challenge!

Week Fourteen

WOW the first week in the new year is nearly over, how did that happen?

I spent most of this week cleaning up after the festivities, decorations down, freezing leftovers, eating leftovers, getting uniforms ready and still getting over the cold and back to work, it’s all over too quick for me.

I received my December glossybox, this time it was red instead of pink which was a lovely touch and it had some lovely gifts in it check the photo below

2. NOUVEAU LASHES Noir Mascara (£14.99/8g)

The 366 Photographs a day challenge
I also joined a group called the 366 day challenge, it is where you have to take a picture a day and post it on one of your social media platforms, I have done a special collection for you all but you can look at what inspired me to take the photograph at my flicker, which is on the right of this page! This would normally be the 365 challenge trust me to do it in a leap year!
And the other day I got bored and went a photographing session involving the little members of my family so here is a montage of my favourite ones of them.
Bella the dog, Ali the cat and Boo the cat!

Week Eleven

This time next week it will all be over , the hours spent buying presents then wrapping them, time spent queuing  to buy food then preparing and making it, in seconds the presents are open and in minutes the food is eaten, it is a good job that Christmas at least for me isn’t just about the day itself but everything leading up to it.

This week was our staff party, we had it at the Sheraton hotel,Blackpool, the food was lovely, the entertainment great and the company fantastic thanks to our very generous boss for footing the bill! But alas no pictures as not one of us took a camera , I am not too bothered as hate having my pic taken.

This weeks post is a bit thin so I have got some pictures of my animals showing the Christmas spirit.




And of course it isn’t Christmas until you have seen this advert on TV, by the way still haven’t seen it!

And a couple more shots of my boy and girl chilling after a full day wrapping presents!

Week nine

Okies this week I have found another nail polish I am all over, just love the effect it creates, It is also 3 weeks to Christmas and Lady Gaga released her new video which is absolutely fabulous.

This week I bought a new topcoat for my nails, oh no not another one I hear you say, well hell yes this one is awesome as it turns all polishes on my nails matte yes no sparkles its fab but here is a picture just to show you. This will get abused after Christmas a lot.

Well this weekend I put up my Christmas decs , I love this time of year, when you can shut the curtains pull the duvet over you and snuggle on the sofa and watch TV, and have lots of sparkly things scattered about the place, I really do like and with only 3 weeks to go until the big day I need to get cracking on with the present buying I have only bought one so far. Here are some pictures of my decorations this year. Do you think I love Disney too.

This week saw the release of Lady Gaga’s new video Marry the night, she sang the song on The X Factor last week ,so here is the Video hope you like as much as me!

Lastly here are a couple of pictures, these are Bella the dog and Ali the cat and you can see fromthe picture where Ali got his name from LOL

What ya looking at walk away just walk away!

I warned you dumb dog, I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

Have a Great week People!
