Sorry ladies its not a designer handbag but a beautiful Purple Osprey Sirrus ruck-sac.
Osprey Sirrus Ruck-Sac
When I go on my long walking holidays I use an Osprey Kestrel 48 ruck-sac that I love, its comfortable to carry day after day, has lots of pockets, holds my platypus,and is generally just perfect for me.
So I have longed for an Osprey Sirrus ruck-sac for well over a year, its a bit smaller than the Kestrel so perfect for day walks, but still has all the pockets and plenty of room for my platypus.
You can Imagine my surprise/delight when I found one hiding in my bed, its just perfect in every way and much better for me than an Easter egg
Just recently I have been having a number of people calling round trying to sell me things or sign up to monthly charity payments.
Just like millions of other of people I cannot afford to do either
Last week a charity collector was very rude to me and it left me feeling very upset and mean
I do give to charity in many ways, take all my unwanted things to charity shops, buy pin badges etc but I do this when I can AND do not want people at my door trying to pressure me into a monthly payment I cannot afford !
So now thanks to MoneySavingExpert.com I have this…..
Now lets just hope these people are intelligent enough to READ !!
I am sat drinking a nice cappuccino in the Starbucks at stansted airport , after what has been an awful week for me.
For the first time in well over 6 years I have been properly ill
I expect working on the checkouts and handling all that money brings me into contact with more germs than is healthy !
Stress has probably played a part in my illness too but now I am off to the mountains to ski,rest,relax and forget about everything for 10 whole days.
Then it’s home to plan for the rest of the year

I love cooking/baking and have wanted to make a Risotto for many months.
Its not something the boys wanted to try and with Geoff having been away, I had no one to make it for, BUT last weekend I finally had the opportunity to make one.
The Jamie Oliver basic Risotto recipe was the one that had been recommended to me, which is kind of funny as I dont really like his recipes, we have 2 of his books and they are the only ones that have never been used !
Anyway I liked this recipe, it had a few ingredients, was easy to make and just needed a little patience with all the stirring
I love that you can make this basic recipe then add anything of your choice, this time we had mushrooms, but I cannot wait to make it with the broad beans that I have growing in my garden.
Its tasted fantastic and will become a favourite recipe I am sure
At the weekend I received a very weird gift, from a fisherman and fellow rambler.
A pot of worms !!
can you guess what I had to do with them ??
Santa was very kind to me at Christmas, not only did I have 4 fabulous days skiing out in Les Gets but I also received some fabulous gifts, all of which I love !
As well as the above I now have The Killing part 2 to watch and an Acupuncture treatment booked for next week, which I hope will help my Sciatica.
Apart from all the lovely walking which I do with Geoff, the highlight of 2012 for me was finally getting my Job transfer, not only can I now walk to work but I have a new job on the checkouts which I love
The low was not getting to do another massage course but its high on my list for 2013.
I also would like to master sock knitting so to start 2013 off I have enrolled in a class at Craftsy which was on offer at half price.
Soon I have 10 days skiing out in Les Gets with Geoff, not sure what walking we shall be doing in 2013 but what ever we do it will be fun.
WISHING YOU ALL A FIT AND HEALTHY 2013 !!
I only had one bad fall while skiing over Christmas, luckily some nice french man came to my rescue and picked up my sunglasses, and ski poles which had been thrown off and only after I insisted that I was ok did he leave me
I now have quite a painful bruise in a very delicate place
Can you guess where ??
