SORRY I'M LATE FOR ROCKING YOUR WORLD FRIDAY!!!!

The excuse?  I was having a lie in - rusty halo syndrome from last night meant I felt the need to sleep and drink more tea first!  In answer to your question the wine was good as I was in the mood for a drink long story but maybe not for Rocking Your World so I won't bore you...

Anyway


So top of list is hubby for rescuing me a few times to do with work this week - he is a star, he's also off today in his work gear sorting blinds out for the utility as we speak - how awesome is he!!!!! He came home early yesterday and took today off so long weekend ahead of us, which is bliss!

My sweetheart son, he is such a soft soul and such an amazing person he's attempted (yet again) to interact with the kids locally but they are just so awful and cruel and he came back in yesterday in floods of tears honestly at times like this we do seriously consider upping sticks and finding somewhere else, but we like the house and the area just not the pretentious children and he is an only child so tell me how do we sort this?  I'm at a loss, this is the first time he's been out playing on his bike etc during the school holidays - his choice, which means he's not getting as much exercise as he was last year, his partner in crime has moved home and it's so reminiscent of my childhood when my childhood friend moved home and I didn't regain that camaraderie until I was into my teens when we moved house and I found some new friends, but if we're not moving how is he ever going to be able to make more friends  I've gone off at a tangent haven't I but genuinely if you have any advice that might help my sanity chip and help him can you let me know because I have this same issue ever single summer holiday and it's starting to wear thin - and before you ask I'm not the most sociable of people or should I say I'm not good at opening my house up but I'm willing to try anything if it helps!

Anyway other Rocking parts of my week, a pot of coffee out on the patio last weekend with hubby - sheer and utter bliss!

Shimelle's cybercrop has also been a great part of my week, particularly as she gave us 'ample' time to achieve the layouts I was on with another one last night!

The local craft shop having a few 'grab bags' available again

Said ten year old has said that 'not being at work' should be Rocking my World, what he doesn't know is all the extra hours I've been doing ongoing to get on top of the issues at work - bless!  Think he is probably talking about today!

OOH and finally CARMEN'S BACK - WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - SPOTTED HER FIRST POST LAST NIGHT - WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN, WE HAD THE FANFARE EARLIER IN THE WEEK AND THE JELLY AND ICE CREAM AND YOU DIDN'T TURN UP - WE'VE LEFT THE BUNTING OUT BUT MIGHT HAVE TO HEAD TO THE SHOPS FOR BREAD FOR FRESH BUTTIES?  WE MISSED YOU!!!!!!!!!!

So that's it, I haven't dug deep this week, these are the things that have 'sprung' to mind, so they are genuine Rocking moments, as I've always said they don't have to be extensive, or amazing, or inspiring or different, they just have to be moments in your week that have made your world happier and brighter and these are mine for this week.

If you fancy joining in, then do a blog post and bring your link here, leave a comment and away we go and if you are sat saying there are no positives in your week think a little harder there may be something that has made life a little easier, or brought a smile to your face - a phone call?  a comment?  There you go - that's a Rocking moment and it's what makes us Rockers (I will get a Rocker joining in one of these weeks I will) and Rockettes say thank you for being here, thank you for being surrounded by people who love us and accept and appreciate us just for who we are and make our lives complete!

Can't leave you without layouts - praise Shimelle on this one because the bag is looking mighty empty at the moment!

This is my take on the aqua, red and white challenge - I looked at this and thought?  Really?  When I hit the colour red I almost always team it with navy I would never in a million years have teamed it with white and aqua before this challenge and yet I absolutely adore this layout and therefore another Rocking moment for taking me out of my (unknown til now) comfort zone!

I sprayed up the background with an aqua colour wash and stencil and played away (helped along by the photo of said 10 year old and his red coat!)  A close up shows some of the detail!

So there you go another Rocking post

Mr Linky below if you're joining us, if you don't have time or a blog but fancy leaving a comment I love to know whose been toddling along here!

May you have a truly beautiful and blessed weekend!

  1. Loving your gratefuls and your LO - an amazing colour scheme that I wouldn't have thought of either (I usually team red with black).
    Not so nice...the problems said ten year old is having. Sadly, been there ,done that, got the T-shirt (when mine was nine years old). How did we solve it? We invited other children from his class to play, we took him out for days away (with other child/children he knew and liked and it wasn't always to somewhere special e.g. a trip to garden centre and an ice-cream) and the biggie...since our summer holiday was ruined..we took him out of school in November and went to Florida. Only time we ever did this. We also let his head of year/teacher know what had happened and why we were taking him out of school - they approved.
    Hope this helps in some small way Virginia. Stay strong and give your lovely boy a big hug from me.
    Hugs xx

  2. Loving your Friday post as always Virginia - have at least made an attempt today - it's only taken me three months.

    Off for a nose around the other Rockettes pages.

  3. Sorry to hear said 10 year old is having to deal with such a difficult situation. What you say brings to mind a blog post I read on 'Privet and Holly'

    http://www.privetandholly.com/2011/08/birds-of-feather.html

    Your sweet little chap sounds a bit different, not following the flock and maybe not doing the same as his peers. This really isn't a bad thing and is actually to be encouraged, as I know you do. He will find his place in the world it might just take a little while. Give him a hug for me.

    Top hubster with his blinds, work help and coffee, Virginia, and the colour combo on the LO is gorgeous. Such a sweet photo of your lovely boy.

    Have a lovely weekend, my friend.

    xx

  4. Lovely LO Virginia and toot toot for DH.

    I don't have any words of wisdom to share on your son's situation but can I send both of you a big hug.

  5. I agree with Jo. I so sympathise as I was the same. Painfully, painfully shy - so much so it still overspills into daily life. But he is to be encouraged for being different from the other little oiks. He really is.

    I know it's not much help with the socialising aspect but my two eldest at 10 and 14 keep saying they want a penpal... maybe ask him if he wants two gorgeous (if I say so myself) girls writing to him? Something for him to look forward to in the mail at least? Do you have our new address? Pass it on to him by all means.
