Well Friday last week was a day off work which is always a blessing although these days I struggle to fathom out what I'm supposed to be doing which makes it hard work, but a day off is to be celebrated no matter what.
Saturday saw us at the theatre to see Taming of the Shrew performed by the Propeller theatre group. This is about the fourth play we've seen performed by this all male cast and it has to be said they get better and better. They make Shakespeare completely accessible, understandable, flamboyant, vivid, enlightening and most of all thoroughly entertaining. I really cannot praise them enough, so if you fancy a good afternoon or evening at the theatre and they are playing anywhere near you I cannot recommend them highly enough - book those tickets you will not be disappointed!
Sunday and we set off to Wentworth Castle to see an art installation. When we were there at Christmas for their fayre said 12 year old painted a wine glass for the art installation
The rest of the week has been a blur which I blame work but amongst the days I've managed
- Arriving home earlier on Monday than normal, not quite a 12 hour day.
- Adhoc making of scones when we fancied something sweet by hubby
- Eating of said scones with cream and jam, most naughty although said 12 year old had already almost emptied the can of cream!
- Going to the dentist on Wednesday and getting a clean bill of health and some clean teeth to boot!
- Managing a bit of arting Thursday evening in a steampunky kind of way
- Other positives include Sarah being so understanding over her missing circle journal in the collaborart, Donna and I (mainly Donna I might add) are doing our utmost to recover!
- Getting to spend a little bit of time with my sister when we went to the theatre on Saturday, I've really missed her whilst she's in the throws of Uni assignment writing!
- Hubby for putting up with my crazy ideas for adding pull out racks to a cupboard in the kitchen and finding subsequently that it works a treat, I now have a tray for the herbs and spices and one for bread!
- Said 12 year old for making us a cup of tea the other night without prompting - twas truly lovely!
- A Jamie korma curry (not something hubby would usually entertain as not usually hot enought), but Mr Oliver likes to add a green chilli so that was hubby happy and a lovely curry for us to enjoy!
- Hubby overall for listening, I seem to need to talk a lot at the moment and him listening has been a true blessing.
- Seeing a jay in the back garden even if we didn't get the photographic evidence!
So there you go people, you start by thinking, well I haven't done a lot, the week has just been full of work but then by taking those few moments you realise that a whole lot of positives has happened for which I truly am immensely grateful.
And lastly to all those that happen by here and read and those that join in whether it be once in a while, once a week, once a month I always feel truly blessed that you take the time to enjoy something that has become a weekly ritual. I love to come and visit and find out what positives have occurred in your life, so if you fancy joining in, blog it head back here and link it and then we can come and visit.
I'll leave you with a layout
