Saturday night saw us venturing to an Ice Hockey match, and said 14 year old declared it was a really tense game, it was nil nil at full time and then nil nil after extra time which meant penalties which we unfortunately lost on a 0-1 basis. Such a shame but a good match nonetheless.
Monday was a busy day my mother-in-law has finally reached her final destination in a care home, but it also saw me visiting my Mum in hospital again, she fell at the weekend and broke her leg in not one, not two but three places, so within 2 weeks of being out after a mastectomy she's back in with a broken leg and an operation to plate her foot due to the damage. And Wednesday night/thursday morning saw her returning after coming home with other issues. So why the grateful - well grateful we have a National Health Service that are there to help and assist in times like this, as this is now her third time in hospital in recent weeks I'd be grateful if this could also be her last, what we want now is a fully functioning mended Mum, so if you can offer up some positives that would be lovely my wonderful people.
Wednesday grateful was work being practical with the atrocious weather and not opening the office up, the roads were treacherous but the snow kept falling - not fun!
I'm also grateful that said 14 year old didn't submit to the weather, but went for the school bus and managed to get to school, see out the day and make his way home.
Next grateful is school having the sense to cancel parents evening, the evening we'd had the snowfall, it meant we didn't have to venture out again once we were all home safe and sound.
Hubby managing to get to hospital for his pre-op was another grateful, when that snow started we were all a bit worried and you don't really want to cancel hospital appointments, but he managed to get there, we are just waiting on the appointment now.
I'm also loving the documented life project, I was going to join in last year but didn't manage it, this year when my journal finally arrived I set too
Here is week 1 - relating to Goals
then week 2 - which was to use gesso - I had great fun playing with the gesso that Karen bought me as part of my UK Scrappers Secret Santa
And the last week which was around colours
I'm planning on making the heart shape an integral part of every page I do.
The lovely post lady managing to struggle through the snow to get to us on Wednesday meant a fab pile of photos arriving that I'd ordered so let further scrapbooking commence - yay!!!!!!!!!!!!
That my lovely people is my list for this week, there are a few items which whilst aren't great are just life and we have to deal with what it throws at us, however, in amongst the detritus there are positives which is why I do this post religiously week in and week out.
If you fancy joining in this just pop a post together, pop back link up leave a comment to remind me to come and visit and that's it!
Hope you have had a good week
