This is me after a free haircut & facial, which I had earlier today as part of a beauty salon review I'm doing for work. The facial was awesome and I got some really good skincare advice :) I love my hair too - it really, REALLY needed cutting - I've had some shorter layers cut in and it feels so much better! So, all-in-all a good day!

Another food-related post today; I had these delicious vegetarian fajitas for my tea tonight. I've not had fajitas for ages and they were yummy :) I'm a big fan of Mexican food and have to confess that fajitas are one of my favourite meals, they're quick and easy to prepare and de-lic-ious - I really should make them more often!!

Seeing as it's tradition to make pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, I made five pancakes tonight when Hubby got home from playing football. I only managed to eat two, but they were epic: I covered one in chunky peanut butter and the other in Nuttella, I then placed one on top of the other and rolled them into a sausage - it was delicious, if a little sickly. It's only once a year though :) I hope you enjoyed some delicious pancakes tonight - feel free to share your favourite toppings!

I got a new computer today at work, complete with Windows 7 and lots of memory meaning it's more than twice as fast as my old PC :) It will make a massive difference; a lot of time before was spent waiting for my computer to do things or catch up with me but this one is now lightening fast - yay!
Update on the cold front: it's still here and my nose is beginning to get sore from blowing it :(

Spring Has Sprung
Hubby and I went for a walk today with my parents and I spotted these - I hate winter so the first signs of spring are a wonderful sight! It was actually a nice sunny winter day today, once it'd stopped raining and I really enjoyed being out in the fresh air - it actually got rid of the headache I'd had since I woke, but I've been left with a sore throat and runny nose :(

So, it appears there's a running theme this week. The above photo is a shot of the clock on my pc as I left work tonight! I didn't bring anything home to do but I did stay until well after I should :( It's Friday tomorrow though and I have naff all planned for the weekend, apart from food shopping and the usual 'Sunday stroll', so I'm looking forward to chilling out and doing nothing!

All Work & No Play
I don't seem to be able to find the motivation to do as much work as I should whilst actually at work, during the normal working day at the moment - in fact, for the last two nights, I've brought work home to do. I am pretty busy at work at the mo, as I'm the only person doing my job, but I'm not so swamped that I have to bring things home. I just can't find the motivation I need to knuckle down whilst at work; so if you find my motivation moping around anywhere, can you send it my way please? I need it back!

Happy Valentine's Day
Hubby & I don't really do anything special for Valentine's Day (he always says he doesn't need a commercialised day as an excuse to show his love) but this year we'd agreed NOT to do cards; so what does he tell me last night? Yes, you've guessed it, he'd got me one anyway. So, at lunchtime today I headed to the card shop and bought a card for him - on the left and the one he bought for me is on the right! I hope you all have had a lovely day and haven't given in to the pressure to be romantic too much - romance should be spontaneous and heartfelt, not something dictated by card companies and chocolate retailers looking for love-struck fools who'll happily part with their cash in the name of love!

I've had a busy weekend, seeing Sarah Millican on Friday night, staying up until 4am on Friday/Saturday to watch Supernatural, then having my nephew and sister-in-law stay over on Saturday night and all of us visiting my parents today - it's been good but busy and I've missed my slippers :) fingers crossed for a quiet week!

Izzy loved walking in the snow today. I love walking in the snow too. I actually a fan of the snow; the only time I don't like it is when I have to be somewhere - then it's rubbish as Britain seems to come to a standstill at the sight of the tiniest bit of snow, but when you've got nowhere to be and you're just enjoying the snow because it's there, it's awesome. I'm a huge fan of fresh and untouched snow - I love walking where no-one else has and I love the crunch snow makes underfoot! Anyway, I'll stop rambling about snow now, goodnight x

Let It Snow!
It's been snowing since about 4pm this afternoon and to start with it didn't look heavy enough to actually settle but as you can see from the photos above (taken at about 8pm and 9:30pm), it's settling! I love the snow but hate how England seems to grind to a hault at the slightest snowfall. I can't wait to go for a Sunday stroll in the snow tomorrow :)
Make Me Happy
Stumbled across this little guy at lunchtime, not too far from my office. He belongs to www.asewingodyssey.blogspot.com but for more photos of the 'Make Me Happy' project, search 'Cheeky Knitting Leicester' on Facebook.

It Finally SnowedOk, so it's not a lot and it was at about 8:30 this morning and there's no sign now that snow ever fell, but IT SNOWED!!!! It's not due to snow again until Saturday but you know how iffy the Met Office are with their predictions, so this might be the only snow fall I see this winter - a far cry from last winter eh?!
