Good Morning one and all it's Friday which means
So first up on the list of happies this week - are the Sheffield Herd - if you haven't heard about them (forgive the pun). There is a website (and an app)
These elephants are dotted around the city and include large ones like the photos below and smaller ones decorated by local Sheffield schools
Said 15 year old appearing as if by magic in this photo!
Next up - live Theatre, I've said it before and I will say it again but you really cannot get any better than live theatre. This particular production named "Dream" and performed by the Sheffield People's Theatre - the first time we've had chance to see them - and ooh my were we in for a treat!
A mash up of Shakespeares romances - we had them all - starting out in a gig and ending up in the Northern General hospital - apparently with 80 actors in total - 80 and the hours flew by - the audience was in uproar at the hilarity and the utterly compelling play that appeared in front of us!
All I can say is that I wish we'd booked for a second show!
Said 15 year old and hubby - enjoying the pre-show drinks, the play was at the Crucible which always has a great atmosphere!
Overnight oats - always a lovely refreshing breakfast and the gorgeous summer fruits that are out and about at the moment - fabulous!
So some of you may remember me mentioning my gelli printing session the other week, well I was stuck with lots and lots of backgrounds. Those of you that follow my blog may remember that last summer I generated lots of A5 art using the Summer of colour inspirations, unfortunately, the summer of colour is no more so I thought I'd have a go myself, however, I had no idea what to do on them this year (I exhausted sea creatures last year). But then the Sheffield Herd was launched and I thought what finer way of celebrating it than creating elephants!
Then Monday saw my niece turn 17 - 17 years of age - you can see she looks shocked LOL! We had a meal out at a local pub which was lovely and not too expensive. It was a really warm night so afterwards we headed outside (not that it was much cooler).
My sister organised (in organised she asked my Mum to source whilst said 17 year old niece had facials, hair cuts and catch ups with other family)
And my Mum managed to ring my Uncle - no idea how she managed it - it was a crazy conversation!
My sis and niece both looking beautiful as always!
The rest of the week has muddled along, lots of work, said 15 year old finished school.
I had my hair cut.
The weather has finally cooled down, some of the evenings it was stifling 25 degrees at midnight in Yorkshire is what can only be considered crazy madness!
So there you have it people the week that was, I hope yours has had some silver linings and positive moments - if you fancy joining in do a blog post, mention this blog, pop back and link up and we can come and visit!
