The Week that was

Neil's week off last week turned into a very busy one! After Alex's 17th birthday party here last Saturday and spending Sunday tidying up I said that it would be a good idea to decorate now the party was over and so we did! We went from red/orange on the walls with plain Magnolia, that way I could have whatever colour curtains I wanted etc. It took a couple of days to paint the stairs, lounge and dining room and looks alot lighter now. Will take some photos in a minute and post them up later!

We took a break Friday and went out with the camera for the day, taking a little tour round the North Norfolk Coast, stopping at Blakeney, Cley and Cromer. Our first stop was at a place called Wiveton Downs, a nature reserve which unlikely as it may sound for Norfolk was on a hill!!!

Lucy went into the vets for the day Thursday to have a tube and camera put down her throat to see into her throat, chest and lungs - they couldn't find anything wrong so have sent off some samples to the lab. They also took loads of photos of her legs, hips and back but again couldn't find anything wrong thank goodness. She has a months supply of anti-inflammatory drugs and has to have short, quiet walks for a month - on the lead!!!! She is not a happy girl!! Hoping after a couple of weeks the tablets will have worked and we can up the walks abit, she hates being kept on the lead and not able to run about.

Yesterday was spent curtain shopping, I hate shopping for things for the house as Neil and I do not agree on anything. I wanted green curtains he wanted brown!!! We were also shopping for lights for the lounge to replace our orange ones and managed to get them at Dunelm Mill which is now open in Sprowston (piccie later!!).
