Deliveries: 21st May 2014

This shoes are so cute, I think one of my ovaries popped and I swore I'd never let that happen again! I won these Bobux shoes from Fube shoes over on twitter. It's really lovely to win something the girls really need. They are both pretty mobile, with one of them furniture walking so it won't be long before she will be wearing these. The service from Fube shoes was excellent and as I do most of my shopping online these days, I would certainly use them again.

Deliveries: 15th May 2014

As I've been doing Slimming World, I entered a twitter competition to win this workout DVD. I don't think I'll ever have a flat stomach again post twins unless I work at it and I'm hoping this will help. I just need to find the time to do it!
I won this book from Room To Grow over on Facebook. We love bedtime stories so it's great yo have a classic to add to their library.

Deliveries: 9th May 2014

Today this lovely box of chocolates arrived from Theatre People. I won on their Easter Competition and the prize was a box of Hotel Chocolat chocs which they sent just before Easter. They are still nowhere to be seen! I wonder if the Post Office Mice are fat from that lost parcel! I got in touch to see if they were able to find out what had happened, and they very kindly sent out these as a replacement! I've had a few prizes go missing in the past. Most often because of an incorrect address, and the odd one, like this, when they just disappear! Thank you to Theatre People for sorting this out and being so nice about it!

Deliveries: 7th May 2014

Bacofoil wanted to know why people used their foil and I said it was a timesaver with the twins! They've sent me a £5 voucher to spend on their products and as we cook lots we'll use it pretty quickly.

Deliveries: 3rd May 2014

This arrived from Mum & me. They had a twitter chat during One Born Every Minute and they selected me to receive this bottle of Baby Bath Snuffles which will be great for the girls to try.

April Update

I think every month my updates are going to involve me wondering what happened with the time! I did manage to squeeze lots in though. 

I've typed up the last notepad and WIP on the laptop is about 24,000. Both the notepads above have been filled this month & the overall total must be somewhere between 30 - 35K. I'm hoping to get near to 40K by the Summer Party & then I have some hope of sending a full to the NWS by end of August. This will be my main objective again this coming month. 

Reading: I finished Crimson Ribbon and gave it 4/5 stars. It has an excellent opening but overall I felt the rest of the story didn't live up to the start, but was an enjoyable read. I'm now reading Sweet a Proposal by fellow Romaniac Celia J Anderson. I'm already enjoying it but am writing during my reading slot at the moment so need to duplicate myself!

Health: I celebrated my birthday a bit too well so gained some pounds which I've again lost but overall have been rather static over this month. Hoping May sees me get on with some steady weight loss again. I've cooked lots of recipes, but none from Good Food.

Competitions: I've not been doing many other than the odd ones on FB & twitter. I was lucky enough to win a RT comp with Andrew James and now have this lovely dish:
So I'll be able to do some nice meals in there!

Back to the writing again now with the hope of getting to the halfway point soon.
