Team Blue all the way! - #chicandstylish #linkup

Morning my friends.
How are you all doing in over fifty blogging land?
Yesterday I was supporting my son on the River Thames, he was competing in the Doggetts Coat and Badge Wager and came a very close & respectable second!!  We had a wonderful day with lots of family and friends around us, and as you can imagine there was plenty of eating and drinking involved!!  Needless to say there's no post other than the #Chicandstylish #linkup today whilst I re-charge my batteries and recover - lol.
Later today I'm off to London for an exciting event, stay tuned on my IG stories to find out what.
Will also be posting about it soon too.  Happy Thursday my lovely friends. X

Just a couple of shots from the presentation yesterday - both David and I are So proud of his achievement - working full time shift work, training 6 days a week, losing over 6 stone in the past two years and gaining 2nd place after sarting to learn to scull just over a year ago - he's done an amazing job I'm just about fit to burst with pride.  #proudmumma

Team blue all the way.  After we all got doused in champagne - what a waste - lol.
Was a fabulous day to share with our friends and family who were all sporting blue in some sort of way - there were even blue cakes to eat!!!

Do watch out for the full post within the next few weeks - just need to get all the photos sorted.
