25th of the month again

For those of you who are new to my blog, on the 25th of every month I take pictures of my day all day and scrap them in my scrapbook. It was all started by Shimelle , if you click on her name it will take you to her website. So here are my pictures for the 25th. They are not very exciting, as yesterday was a strange day. My next door neighbour passed away Sunday evening and I spent some time with his wife. I feel like I am surrounded by death at the moment and I am struggling to be upbeat at all. So here is a view of yesterday.

My next door neighbours lovely garden. Tom used to spend hours in there and had on many occasions attempted to teach me about plants. Unfortunately, his skills never rubbed off on me.
Me, a stone lighter than I was last month.Hoorah! Only another one to go. No pressure!

The library to pick up some more books that I have been waiting on.

One of my favourite shops - Coast. It sells lots of lovely nik naks. Especially lovely cupcake goodies.

As you can see, I really didn't spend a lot. Facepacks to get rid of the wrinkles and some sparkly eyeliner, which I have fallen in love with. It makes me all sparkly, and boy do I need that at the moment.
My at my computer,as you can see my desk is not very tidy. There should be more scrapbooking stuff out than there is.

Driving to school to pick the girls up. As you can see, it is still cold here.

I am very good at multi tasking! It only takes one hand to cook with. Attempting to cook chilli whilst devouring Joanne Harris's The Evil Seed.

Doo Dahs hoping that his hypnotic skills will make DD1 give him her icecream. Unfortunately it did not work. That's my day. Not very exciting, I know, but at least it shows I am normal, like everyone else. I also picked up some books from the charity shops,as well as from the library which I will show later in the week.

That's all for today, thanks for stopping by.
