8 days later !

My Friend Debbie ,made this graphic for me ,personalised graphics now ,arent I lucky ?

Talking of luck today is ~

Friday the thirteenth….

The belief that Friday 13th is an especially unlucky day is one of the widest-known superstitions in Britain today, and is erroneously assumed to be of great antiquity. The notion that thirteen is a generally unlucky number has not been found earlier than 1852, and although Fridays have been regarded as unlucky since medieval times, it is quite certain that the fear of Friday 13th is a Victorian invention. The first definite reference to Friday 13th is from 1913…….

I am trying to think what I have been doing since I last posted eight days ago ! Jean my siter who came on the bus to see me on Wednesday ,while she is on holiday from School she is a dinner lady and teachers assistant,says it called having a life ,I agree ....and a puppy !

My son Mark and Chrissie came over on Easter Monday, and we all went to St Ives where I found an outfit for my Grandsons wedding in June ,a suit in linen and cotton in a sort of french navy/airforce blue ,edged with white so I shall use white accsessories ,I have white shoes ,best to wear ones that you know are comfy it will be a long day !bought a little white lace bag ,and have a top that will be ideal ....somewhere ?Maurice bought a new landing net ,Oh and I bought three books for £4.50 from the second hand stall on the market ,by James Patterson .,we also bought a new jumper for Aunty Kitty ,when we got home I embroidered her name onto some tape andsewed it into the back of  the inside of collar.

On Tueday Maurice and I took Kizzie to the vet for her second jab ,so we can take her out on a lead next week ?she was weighed and has gained .29 kg ,is it ! Idont know ,I only do lbs and ounces! we then went on to see Aunty Kitty ,who was very sleepy ,Ithink I was more pleased with her new jumper than she was ,she couldnt be bothered ,isnt it a shame ? Then in the evening I went to the WI  meeting ,sadly the lady speaker Susannah Marshall ,who was to tell us about'Wickedly naughty women'was poorly and couldnt come ,she was going to try ,but her daughter said no ,but since she comes from Milton Keanes ,you couldnt blame her ,its alright coming ,but its along way afterwards to go home ,But WI women arent easily fazed so we had a  music quiz...the music that introduced old Radio programmes ,ie Mrs Dales Diary ,Dick Barton ,Family favourites,and top of the form to name the few I can remember ,I got 17 out of 24 lol

On Wednesday Jean came on the bus ,and Pete came after work to take her home  and we all had dinner together when Maurice got in ,during the day Jean met Debbie who came round ,and we all drank lots off coffee and alot of chatting took place ,in fact we all enjoyed our selves entertained of course by Kizzie .

Yesterday I went into the office for another meeting of the compaints and complements group I am on, we are setting up the new procedures So ,that is what I have been up to pheww ! now Im up to date ,hope I havent bored you all !When I finish this entry I am going to put my friend Debbie on my side bar( very remiss of me )she has done my graphics today ,arent they wonderful ,she has recently started a graphics journal called 'Debsdabs' encouraged by our dear Donna ,as well as her journal 'Whatever' ...So as ever have a lovely day( disregard the date ),With Love

And Kizzie xxx

Aww -what lovely pics Jan, bet you're time is taken up playing with Kizzie!
Didn't you go to the book sale at the Rural Museum? I am writing up my blog about my finds there at the moment.

I wonder which radio theme tunes you couldn't guess at?  Bet you got the Dick Barton one right & Mrs. Dales Diary :-D

Lovely graphics, especially the Kizzie one!  Sounds like you had a lovely holiday and a very eventful week!  Hasn't the weather been grande!  Thirteen has always been my lucky number, and Friday the 13th especially whereas I was born on a 13th and on my 40th birthday, Friday the 13th I won the jackpot at Bingo.  Who knows, the European Lottery this time?  Wouldn't that be wonderful!

sybilsybil45 said...

Hi Jan,  You seemed to have had a nice Easter. Your new outfit sounds good. I will be looking forward to the photo's in due course.   I did laugh when  I read how heavy Kizzie is...do  you think you have a Great Dane !! if my calculations are right she must be about 5 stone now !!!! I am going away to have a wee look at Debbie's journal. She is so talented. I din't even understand graphics. Mind you most people are so clever on their journals makes mine look so plain.
I have had a nice Frid 13th. took a neighbour for a coach as he is away to London for the day he will be ringing soon to go and pick him up. Then Mary and I went to the garden centre had a nice coffee and cake...and bought a terracota pot..last of my Christmas money!!  Love Sybil xx

I thought the thirteenth was supposed to be unlucky because there were thirteen present at the last supper, and that was certainly unlucky for one of the diners. ;O)
Love the pics of Kizzie. B. x

kirkbyj05 said...

Smashing graphics!   And what about that little angel Kizzie?  Where did you say you lived?    Lol!  (I might just come and steal her away from you...she is soooooo sweet!)
You have been busy too I see...shame about your speaker at the WI but well done you at the quizz!    Jeanie

tellsg said...

No wonder you haven't been here ... you have been having fun with the puppy.  She is looking really gorgeous and I remember when Billy was a baby how much time we spent just watching him and laughing.  Hugs, Terry x

kaydeejay5449 said...

Kizzie is so cute!  I love puppies.  I love James Patterson novels.  I've read many of his books.  He's great.
Thanks for your recent sweet comments in my journal.  It's meant a lot to me to hear such kind words.
Hugs,  Kathy

You never bore me. You do the most interesting things and are always busy. Paula

jacksj989 said...

Yes, the grathics are wonderful.

cacklinrosie101 said...

You've had a very busy week, as always, Jan.  Poor Kizzie and the vet.  She will soon learn not to like that place one bit.  My Grizzly starts howling at least a half mile before we get there now.

Glad you are wearing comfy shoes to the wedding.  As you know, poor Jeannette learned that lesson.  Love the graphics!  Debbie is so talented to pick this up so quickly.  Love xx Chris

funnyface0s0 said...

Hi Jan - yes, excellent graphics and i love the way Mizz Kizzie gets in there ...lol
Luv Jayne x

jmoqueen said...

Awww Kizzie is such a cutie I'm not surprised she has kept you entertained.  Sounds like you've had a busy old week.  Also got a bargin in the process with those books ~ don't forget to tell us if they are any good ;-)  Debbie's graphics are really good.

0.29kg is a little over an ounce, you'll be glad to be able to get out with her. Sounds like a sucessful shopping trip

lindapaterson177 said...

I just love wee Kizzie! and I love anything with 13 I stayed at no 13 for years! Have a good Sunday....
luv bella xx

erarein63 said...

Sounds like a nice week and a busy one.  You multiply kg x 2.2 to get pounds so .29kg is 0.638 lbs.  Interesting history on Friday 13th.  De ;)

beckiepainton said...

sarajanesmiles said...

There are wickedly naughty women here in Milton Keynes?
Shocked and stunned I am ;o)
Has Kizzie been for her first walk yet?
Will keep reading and find out!
