Rocking my world most definitely was last Friday, retail therapy - nothing finer! I popped and got a new journal book from Hobbycraft and a large tub of paint with a couple of magazines to boot! Then I headed down to the Craft Box to see them in their new home which is gorgeous, huge and full to the brim with goodies, I had a thoroughly good time walking around the shop filling my basket with all sorts of things including sale items! So not only did I come home laden down I came home with bargains too - now you can't ask for more than that can you!
Once home I got changed and tried Zumba on the Wii for the first time - an experience in itself - but fun and enjoyable so I'm going to attempt to do a few more sessions this week to see if I can move this weight issue of mine along!
Then Friday afternoon found me - now get this
- Sat in the garden
- Milky coffee at the ready
- Enjoying a warm breeze and blue skies
- Two craft magazines to read
Hubby due home shortly so coffee at the ready - just considering when to try and get to see Harry Potter film - lots of them already sold out for this evening (this was last Friday) - I'll let you know when we managed it!
Ooh look at me with my good intentions earlier in the week - can't you tell it didn't last LOL!
So how did my Rocking week continue you may ask?
Anyway hubby then spent Saturday afternoon finishing the loft boarding and dragging items back and forth and up the ladder with a little help from yours truly and said 10 year old! So we can now walk into the guest room even though it's not fully clear it is feeling a little more manageable - so this week (as always) my hubby Rocked my World for getting on with the loft!
Sunday we had a family get together at my Mum's for my niece who reached the grand old age of 12, we had a good few hours eating, chatting, laughing and supping tea - nowt finer (broad Yorkshire accent to be used at this point). So family Rocking My World.
Work busy busy busy, but a couple of eventful evenings making teacher gifts, "Making Gifts" magazine managed to hit the Rocking list this week because it's simple straightforward instructions on a 'writing set' took this demented female from stressed to 'sorted' in about 3 hours, yes that's right I managed 3 teacher gifts in 3 hours and add to that that I'm pretty happy with the results which are now all cellophaned up and ready to head to their rightful home!
New garden furniture also has to be high up the list, why, because there is nothing finer than sitting out when I first get home with a coffee to wind down from the days stresses!
Home cooking, after having a blip at the weekend (blame the part baked rolls and the party) I had yet another heart to heart with dear hubby, who bless him listens to my whinging pretty much continually, anyway he agreed that the 'formula' we'd used last week when it came to eating seemed to work (albeit that we abandoned the plan at the weekend) so we're now back in line with what we were doing last week and I'm trying not to stress about it - so with this comes the need to cook from scratch which always has us dabbling with new recipes which we have really enjoyed so home cooking sits up there too!
Now I think that will be this weeks list, people, bargains, home cooking, listening ears - you get it all here you know! What's been Rocking Your Week - was it a person that made it more manageable or something else, if you spill the beans and join in then don't forget to link so we can come and see what's Rocked your week this week!
Finally the resurrection of the RIP Circle Journal I've been involved in, it's coming back bigger and better than before - so thank you Flo for getting this one moving again! Now only question is what to do?
Now can't leave you without crafting can I so here is my Illuminate page from Darcy's 52 words, I was overall pleased with this once I'd finally settled on an image (still fighting with Alliance)
