Good Morning/Atternoon/Evening lovely people
First up, a visit to the theatre, last Friday with hubby, we'd bought the tickets ages ago to see the Shakespeare play - Julius Caesar. I'll be honest we weren't expecting to enjoy it quite as much as we did, predominantly because we thought it would be wall to wall political speeches (not that we haven't heard enough of those recently), anyway it was far from it, a fast action play set in modern day and as relevant today as ever before!
Hubby sneaked a photo of the set before the play began. By the time we came back from the interval there were hanging 'bodies' and rubbish everywhere following what was in effect a revolution!
As it was a date night out - we enjoyed a beverage - you can see the Julius Caesar poster in the background
We had a fabulous night, thoroughly enjoyed it, we even bumped into one of hubby's cousins and his missus - which was lovely!
The sky was beautiful when we got out, a shot of the Cathedral shows the beautiful sky
And the other end of the Cathedral with its modern rebuild following the bombing in the second World War, it is a beautiful Cathedral
Next amazing happy of the weekend, lil bro asked lil soon to be sister in law - to marry him! We were all bowled over as it wasn't expected and yes she said yes! So pleased for the two of them
Next up a painty workshop with my Mum at the local Craft shop with Tracy Scott, it was lovely Mum and daughter time.
We finger painted
And then I did some in my journal
and then I did a bit more
Here is my Mum showing that she too is very good at finger painting!
We got to use the new Tracy Scott PaperArtsy stamps
We continued adding layers of paint and stamps and gold paint and dribbles and well you get the drift
and then we masked over - although I only masked one side
I learnt the art of scribbling - who new something so simple could be so effective!
whilst I was enjoying the painty day - said 16 year old had managed to get himself a day's work - together with a pay packet at the end of it, hopefully this will turn into more days later in the summer!
Whilst hubby was on with building this
The week has fair tripped along, we had a rather cross teenager on our hands after the maths exam on Tuesday - actually cross doesn't come close, the new 9-1 exam in higher tier left him highly frustrated, we are just praying he gets the grade he needs for college - keep your fingers and toes crossed.
I had the joys of watching him come in each day and cross through his exams
I enjoyed beans on toast in the middle of the week - it's the simple things in life, with HP brown sauce - nom
As well as all of the above, I've worked and worked and a bit more work, but today I'm going to put work down and try and enjoy some of the simpler things in life. I hope you've all had a truly beautiful and blessed week.
