Morning All - well this week has definitely flown by with the blink of an eye, I'm a bit short of photos I'm afraid - but hey let's see what grateful moments I have.
Last weekend was forecast for being a wet and miserable affair so we had no 'plans' to venture far and wide, however, it turned out to be a lovely weekend - so this weekend we'll be ignoring the forecast and heading out regardless.
However, time at home with hubby and son last weekend meant that I dragged out my sewing machine and my new needle felter to play with. Said 13 year old decided that he wanted to have a 'play' he's used my sewing machine before but was ultimately intrigued with the needle felter - it turned out that we had to take it in turns to use it!
These are two cushions made by said 13 year old, the first one I helped cut out the elements of it and he did the felting and putting the cushion together and didn't he do a grand job!
The one he did the following day was of his own doing, cutting the elements, needle felting and stitching the pillow case.
And then he also made one for his cousin which I don't have a photo of, we had a fab time playing and are loving the ideas we've come up with as a result of this new piece of kit! So I'm grateful for a fab 13 year old!
Actually talking about said 13 year old, he really is an absolute joy to be around at the moment, he is smiley, chatty, he loves to catch up on our day and tell us about his day, he declared on Wednesday that he'd had "a great day at school today, Mum!" - how fab is that and his positivity really is infectious!
Next grateful - Happify - I've left this alone for an age but recently I was so low and didn't know how to pull myself out of it mentally that I went back to Happify. I love this site and have used so many of the tracks, the current one I'm on is releasing more positivity into my life.
As a result of that Monday saw changes, nothing that warranted flags being waved or anything like that, just a determination to make changes and do you know this week has been particularly fabulous as a result. The change in mental outlook really is pretty blinking special!
