Well here we are again - Friday already, time to think about our week what's gone well, what's been the silver linings, what person has made your week, what contact have you had, what time have you spent in your own time for which you are grateful! Each and every one of these are 'rocking your world' moments and these are the ones that we document on a Friday to retain a balance in life.
Friday morning brought an inset day for said 11 year old so we had a slow start to the day, so slow he was still in PJ's when hubby arrived home at 11am - having taken half a days leave! We headed to Meadowhall for a trip to Lush for some new shower gel amongst other things, discovered a 2 for £10 deal at a well known store so that was tea sorted, I had to take it slow because I was still mighty dizzy but I was happy to be upright and sharing time with my family.
Saturday brought about some dry whether so we decided to go and do a geo-cache (or three) for a change. We headed to the woods that are a couple of mile from us, they are actually ancient woods which was news to me as they are only a stones throw from a mighty busy road and you can actually see the M1 from part of the woods so we were amazed and this is what we found
The entrance to the woods
A great day overall, Sunday brought another trip out to Brodsworth Hall this time up close - look how pretty these flowers are
Monday brought grey skies but we'd free tickets to Bang Goes the Theory in Sheffield, so off we trundled to an awesome science show with a great after show attraction. Watching people blow things up on stage is always fun and that's what we got!
So the weekend was positive and fun and only a little bit wobbly!
Tuesday brought work which felt a bit - boo hiss! But the evenings have brought crafting and discussions with blogging friends, chats on facebook and other niceties so it has been positive evenings and hard work day times.
I had a few crafting positives this week, receiving a blog win from Susie in the form of a scrapbook mystery book was awesome as were the gorgeous crafty gifts included, a gorgeous piece of mail art arrived from Lorraine as part of the Collaborart blog and Donna's journal arrived on Thursday my first pairs journal - and the book is gorgeous!
I've another journal due with me from the rock in peace resurrected blog tomorrow which will finish my crafty week off just grand. I managed a double page layout this week that I'm really pleased with because I altered the paper so overall on a craft basis things have been good.
To really top my week off like a cherry on top, I've had some positives from bits of mail art sent out recently, most of which was unannounced, it's been lovely getting some positive feedback from people saying how much they enjoyed receiving the art and that it's amused posties up and down the land as they go through the hands of Royal Mail. So much so that I've now got 20 mail art pieces in hand ready to fly from my hands to another recipient, such a shame Royal Mail has seen fit to charge 50p for a second class stamp, I really do wonder with such a massive hike in fees if this will detrimentally affect their business.
So here I sit on Thursday evening, absolutely shattered, slightly wobbly but overall good with my hubby and my son by my side - what could be finer!
Finally a bit of crafting for you - entitled Blue Sky Day - I hope your day is full of blue skies
