Hi all,

I havent had chance to post for a while, had so much going on and dandy being far from the front of my mind as we still have a towbar on the new car.

Anyway we have a new addition to our Dandy family.

Meet Lilly.

Me and my friend stopped going to slimming clubs Caz, we found that if we'd lost weight we then went to the pub and celebrated then had chippy on the way home and if we hadn't lost we still went to the pub to commiserate and then stuffed ourselves comfort eating so no matter which of us had lost and which had put on we still both ended up eating more than we would've if we'd not gone to the club Twisted Evil 

I'm going nuts trying to find Elsa and Anna dolls from the film frozen ..... Evie will be 4 next week and that's what she wants. Trouble is they've sold out everywhere and people are now flogging them on fleabay for a lot more than they were in the shops and some of those still have waiting times of up to 2 weeks, new stock will be in the shops but not until 3 weeks after her birthday  affraid

It's Blue I  Twitter Thread 2014 1468157981 it  Twitter Thread 2014 1428739134 

Following our car woe's we decided that we'd put too much money into the car to scrap it ....... so we spent a bit more on it  geek and it's running great now. We did pick ourselves up a lovely little run around that'll take the strain off the old car and costs a lot less to run.

This is Tallulah, I did want a blue one but she screamed at me to take her home with us and we used to have a red car that was very reliable. We've had her just over a month and it costs half what it used to cost for John to get to work and back, we still have old faithful for towing the Dandy  Very Happy

Didn't someone tell me blue and green should never be seen without another colour in between.

What are you going to tow the green dandies with now. But hang on, didn't you buy a blue one a while back?
