A Girl called a Jack recipes

I have followed Jack's blog for a while now so when I saw her recipe book in the supermarket I did not hesitate to pick up a copy.  I used my points of course!!  I was very impressed, I knew I would be, there are some delicious recipes in her book and you literally use what you all have in.  I usually find that recipe books require a long list of ingredients which need to be purchased before you even set up the kitchen scales.  Not this book.

Well worth the money.

Park Run

It really is for everyone.  It's free you just have to register.  I joined several weeks ago and for the last two I have participated.  The first weeks just walked fast and last week I walked fast and did some jogging.  Our local park run is literally just up the road from me. It is 5 k.  Has anyone done this?  If not give it a go type in park run followed by your area into a search engine to see where your closest park run is. It is part of looking after myself as I haven't been the best of health recently.

Posting on ipad

I'm having a few difficulties posting on my iPad.  I am particularly having problems posting photos.  I have a few posts to post, so I'll get my laptop put at the weekend.

I hope you are all okay.  Any ideas how I can overcome my problems posting?

Look who came to stay.

I cannot believe my granddaughter is nearly a year old.  Doesn't time fly.  We have her over about once a month or so.  She slept all night and was a pleasure.

Here she is playing with her toys and balancing a little here and there.

Having a grandchild is such a simple pleasure.

Charity shop bargains!

We have a charity shop called secret something or other I cannot recall the second name.  Today all clothing was a pound each.  Here is what I got.  Okay not designer brands but I am pleased with my haul!  Where do you all get your clothing bargains?

I made a mistake I ordered online goods in a larger size by mistake.  Wish there was an online cancellation facility.  Hey Ho, I called up immediately but they cannot change it until 9 am hope so.

If no I can either send them back and incur a further delivery charge of £4.00 ordering further tops or take them in, not that I am that good at sewing plus it has leatherette in the back.  The tops are  a third of the original price so I think If necessary I will pay another delivery fee if in stock.  What a dope I am.  What would you do?

I'm trying to keep to a clothing budget of £230 for the year!!

I have seen that some of my blogger friends have a reactions monitor at the end of their posts.  Sometimes I do not have time to comment but like them to know that I have read it ( albeit not sure if they actually know who read it) but I would like one I my blog and was wondering if some kind person could point me in the right direction please?
