I'm making soap today! They are for my friend's hen night on Saturday, goodie bags are being made for everyone and I said I would make some soaps to go in. I've done some strawberries, and some clear round soaps with red hearts in them. Just waiting for them to cool and finish now and then I will be packaging and photographing them, of course.

Someone in the local area has lost their cat, I feel so sorry for them, I keep looking for it as it's only from two streets away. They have put adverts on the lampposts and I just heard it read out on the lost pets section on Radio Lancashire, so sad, I hope they find her, I will keep looking!

I've been entering magazine competitions again, just puzzles in the weekly magazines. I like to fill them in anyway, so I may as well send in the answers and see if I can get some cash out of it, costs nothing to do as you can enter online! May send in some 'tips' and some photos to see if I can get on those pages too! I shall take over the world of women's weekly magazines! That reminds me, it's Thursday, My Weekly is out today, I shall have to ask Stu to pick it up for me on his way back from work. I have a story in my mind that I'm going to write and send in, would be nice to see my writing in a magazine, don' know what name to use though, hmmmm?

Stu is off work this week and it's going quite nicely! Mum stayed over on Sunday night and she spoiled us with Dominos pizza and a bottle of red wine! Monday was spent in Wigan, sadly another trip to the dentist for a drilling of the face, but that's it now for another six months, and hopefully that will be just a check up with no work......hopefully!!! Anyway, as normal I got compensatory books, quite a few in fact, but The Works have another sale on so they were super cheap! I do love it there, I miss the one we used to have in Preston, I hope it will come back, the Wigan one re-opened so there is hope for it!

Saturday was meant to be a day rest for me, however that morning I got a letter from the hospital telling me I had an appointment that day! So off we went to the eye people and spent a fun filled three hours in Royal Preston Hospital. My eye sight is great I have no problems with the usual glasses type stuffs, and they did my eye pressure too which is weird! They put numbing drops into your eye and then touch your eyeball with what can best be described as a giant ballpoint pen. It's so strange as you don't blink or move away or anything! So, I'm going back in two months time, and in the mean time I will see (pardon the pun) some other eye folks, to test for micro squints, dyslexia, Irlen syndrome and various other randomness. It's looking like I do have some sort of eye/visual type rubbishness, but what it is still remains a surprise! :)

We are having some friends over for dinner tonight which should be nice. Stu is cooking as I'm half dead, honey and mustard chicken, which I'm looking forward too, it's something I quite like! I'm going to make a chocolate torte, but Stu is going to have to do the whipping of the cream, under my direction of course! ;)

Cat related news: Lucy likes Doritos, Eddie likes chocolate, so we have to hide these things now to stop them getting ill, and both cats can't be fobbed off with crushing worming tablets into their food!
