Ho hum, my Rocking Friday
post is late again - but
I do have the excuse that it's
crazy busy here with all the house
stuff going on inside and out so it's
actually fairly amazing that I'm made
it here at all!
So what's made me smile this week?
Luke has been feeling a bit poorly (a virus)
so I took him to the cinema to cheer him up.
I have to confess to having a little sleep
half way through the film (I was really tired!)
but I don't think I missed too much.
We both really enjoyed it,
Benedict Cumberpatch was brilliant!
This little fella :)
He's called a quokka,
and my friend Sabrina found him on
Pinterest and shared him on Facebook.
Look at that cute little smiling face!
And here he is sleeping...
He made me smile too.
This label on a bottle of wine.
Is it wrong to buy a bottle a wine
just because the label is this pretty?
Luckily the wine was lovely too.
I might have to buy another.......
The new cupboards for my
studio arrived from IKEA
and are currently laying flat on the floor
in the sitting room, waiting to be put
Flat. Pack. Furniture.
I'm half way through painting the walls
(ugh, why does each wall need
3 coats of paint??!!),
and hopefully everything should be up
and running by this time next week :)
Hope has got through her heaviest week of
GCSE exams - 8 of them in 5 days, phew!
She's still got quite a few to go but they
are spread out better, which gives her time
to breathe (and cram revise!).
I am amazed how well she has coped
with this stressful time.
The half term holiday is here.
Also, only 13 more working days until
I give up being a Teaching Assistant.
Rosie Mae, whose new trick is to forget
that she's had her dinner, so an hour
after she's been fed she's asking again.
Thing is, I just can't resist that begging face
so she's been getting little snacks to
keep her going.
Hmmmmm, not so silly
after all then, Rosie?!
I'm looking forward to tomorrow evening
when our friends (and neighbours)
Barry and Susan are coming to us for
(Barry is building our garage).
They're always great fun to be with.
Grant, who is, as always, FAB!
He's been working very long hours
(since the dreadful murder in Woolwich
this week) but he just gets on with it.
We're always so grateful when he
gets home safely.
He is a star. Fact.
Ok, that's it for today.
Drop by Virginia's blog if you want
to join in, and leave the link to your
Rocking Friday post
(and it really is a great thing to do.
Sometimes I sit here and don't think I'll
have anything to write about, but once
I really start thinking about it, then it
gets easier. It MAKES me think
about the positive things in my life,
which helps when there's loads of other
usual rubbish-of-life stuff to deal with).
