Tis Friday - I honestly have no idea where this week has gone - blink and you'd have missed it!
But we are here again to celebrate the positives that exist in these last 7 days - if you want more info - look right there's a bit of blurb there. We're a tiny group that celebrate our positives - don't be shy - join in if you fancy!
This hyena was an example of the types of creatures who frequented the place, apparently back then they were about a third bigger and I'll be honest - he was big enough!
I won't scare you with pictures! Apparently they are quite slow moving due to the extreme temperatures which is good because I really didn't fancy getting up close and personal with them!
Saturday a whole week after the car driving experience for said 12 year old we found him in this - you'll be pleased to know that he stayed on the ground - but it did make me giggle thinking one week on he's in yet another vehicle's driving seat!
Then we headed over to my Mum's for a Bonfire party which was fabulous, meat and potato pie and mushy peas with swedey mash and gravy - she had a fire up the garden, got rid of loads of branches and a good catch up with family!
Monday night brought bonfire night, we managed a few fireworks that said 12 year old demanded and then some sparklers. I enjoyed playing with the cameras firework setting and getting a few sparkler shots - said 12 year old managed a message to me!
The rest of the week has trundled along at a fair rate of knots, lots of work meaning that I've been shattered which in turn has meant a few evenings cuddled up on the sofa.
Other gratefuls - hubby and said 12 year old always Rock my world - amazing - they are such good company!
The Wednesday Whine group - as always
Collabor-art for the commencement of it's first circle journal - I sent mine and received Pat's in turn this week, I can't wait to get started! Mine was looking mighty plain as it left my hands but was heading over to Donna's so I'm sure she'll have much fun adding to it. This is how it looked as it left,
Collaborart - so if you fancy joining us - head over and take a look, there's no stress to do 'everything' you can dip into things as and when it suits the key element is that when you commit to a project that you follow through and keep everyone in the know. That way we get to share some fabulous projects together without the worry of people going AWOL! There are things running all the time (pairs journal and mail art) and then other projects that you can sign up to and I know Sarah has sooooooooooooooooo many fantastic ideas up her sleeve at the moment - you wouldn't want to miss out!
Hot chocolate at night (post 9 o'clock) when I'm chilling.
The laptop allowing me to sit on the sofa and watch TV whilst browsing the internet.
Royal Mail for getting Christmas pressies to me without a hassle!
Carmen's Secret Santa Swap even though its proving something of a headache at the moment.
And my lovely people I think that will have to do you - in essence, my week has been busy and full and fun. I've enjoyed time with people I love (whether in person or on line). I've been out and about, enjoyed a film, family time, time at home - you name it I've been done and it makes me feel happy.
I'll leave you with a layout from the fabulous UK Scrappers recent cyber crop, this was a pre-crop challenge of using a class from a previous cyber crop. This particular one based on the Love Life Class (click the class name if you fancy having a go yourself!)
