Good morning lovely people, tis time to take a step back and appreciate the little silver linings that occurred through life in the last 7 days as it is time for
So last Friday I had a simply lovely day, chilling out and scrapbooking with a relatively tidy house, I had the fun time of working my way through a pile of pretty papers and just spending some quality time at home crafting, I re-watched the most recent series of NCIS from the TIVO box and I had a lovely day crafting at my table.
The weekend was glorious wasn't it - unfortunately I didn't get chance to see very much of it if I'm honest, so why you may ask, well me and my Mum had booked for a craft weekend at our local craft shop, we were there both days from 9.30 until 4ish and had a lovely time.
Can you see the concentration on her face!
We made lots of beautiful items, very much not in my style (if I'm honest) but I do like them nonetheless.
This bird house housed a selection of handmade cards
And we also made some cards, again very much not in my style but I enjoyed nonethless! The photos are the original but mine are just the same!
The amount of work the team had gone to was amazing!
Look she was very happy making items!
When I got home on the Saturday evening, hubby had set up outside, including a barbecue, unfortunately the rain came in the evening and we had to finish the cooking off inside, but the thought was there and hubby had been mighty busy preparing the food.
He also made a large quantity of biscotti which have been very tasty but very naughty and not at all friendly to the waistline!
On the second day we made a recipe box
Thankfully I wasn't subjected to colouring in (really not my forte) although a few of the ladies were disappointed.
The classes were taken by Clare Rowlands and Julie and Karen who work at the craft shop.
The weekend literally went in the blink of an eye but we had a lot of fun.
I briefly managed to catch up with my sister on the Saturday evening and my niece which is always lovely.
Hubby and said 15 year old managed to grab a game at Lock N Load on the Sunday and said 15 year old went to a birthday party on the Saturday!
The week has flown by, we've managed early morning walks but work has been hectic and I'm feeling a little tired tonight.
I have another busy week next week, including a meeting about more consultancy and another consultancy day so I'm going to make the most of my day off tomorrow.
The weekend already has plans formulating so I'm going to make the most of crafting if I can.
I hope you've had a beautiful and blessed week and that you've got some silver linings and positive moments to be grateful for, if you fancy joining in then pop a post together (and if you can mention that it's a rocking post somewhere in the narrative that would be nice) and I will come and visit.
Have a lovely weekend and week ahead.
