Writers Block.............

Sorry I've been away soo long.
One day rolls into another and blogging has gone by the by.
Then I don't know what to write about..............
So here I go
 I have a couple of long overdue thank yous,
Firstly for my wonderful  Strawberry Swap all the way from the Netherlands, from the lovely Margriet.
She sent me such a beautiful parcel of goodies.

Thank You Margriet I love it all & sorry it has taken me soo long to post about it xxx
If you want to see what I sent Margriet pop over and see her here.

Secondly I have to thank Shara who was my partner for the Vintage Vacation Swap.
She sent me a trip across America parcel with trinkets and memorabilia from all over the US.

It was great fun opening it, red white & blue everywhere.
Thank you Shara it was a fab swap, if you want to see what I sent Shara pop over and see her here.

So hopefully this has got me back to blogging, I suppose I had a bit of a writers block.
Normally words come easily but I think I have been a bit stuck of late, perhaps it's the lack of chocolate!!
The diet is going well so far, I have lost 10.5lbs, in 4 weeks so lets hope I can keep it up.
I have ridden my new bike to the CS, I was a bit wobbly as I haven't ridden a bike in 15 years.
I still need to get a basket or panniers, bike bell & pad lock but I am trying to keep the cost down and be thrifty about it.
Well that's me for now, I'm off to visit you all now.
Have a lovely week.

I got a pink ding-ding bell for my bike in QD for about 75p. I think it's meant to be for a little girl really lol. Well done with your diet.

Hi Sophie! Wow what wonderful gifts you received, and sent too. I adore that card you sent in your strawberry swap! I thought it was really a shelf at first. So cute.

I bet you look fab on your bike. Well done for loosing some weight, it must be so hard to not eat chocolate.

I know exactly what you mean about writers block. I just cannot think of anything to write on my blog. Love the swaps, and wow to the diet - whats the secret...?

Oh lots of lovelies in your swaps. Well done you for the bike riding, mine has unfortunately tailed off a bit! I know what you mean about the block thing. Mind you of think of stuff and then time just runs away, must be the time of year. Or my laziness!

Sometimes inspiration just doesn't come, does it.
Best avoid buying a basket for your bike - you'll only be tempted to fill it up with CS buys!

Well done on your weightloss! I'm rejoining WW this week as what I lost in the past year has re=found its way to my thighs!
Fab goodies there too, particularly love that really sweet patchwork mini cushion - gorgeous colours used.

Hello! Well done for loosing the weight, I know it's very difficult. Making of the strawberryswap was very much fun to do, I'm glad you like it.
Have a nice week,
