Oh it's been a busy busy week if I'm honest, we arrived back from Center Parcs on Friday and on the Saturday morning I dropped off hubby and said 16 year old to do a CCC boating course for the weekend to learn how to operate a narrowboat. I got the following piccies whilst they were off on their training
They had a fabulous time and really enjoyed learning, the course is run by Swinton Lock Activity Centre for anyone who lives local and the training is open to all people. The course runs at a weekend or weekly and they are a charity, if you don't fancy learning the skills you can also hire the boat out by the hour for up to 12 passengers. Give them a call if you fancy learning new skills or ever fancied a boating holiday or fancy an afternoon on the river.
So what did I do well lots of shopping and sorting on Saturday (and washing oh the never ending pile of washing) and then on the Sunday I headed to the very local craft shop for a craft class with my Mum, these were the class samples
And here is my lovely Mum having fun making the same!
Monday I had a mini melt-down over something which might seem insignificant now (now that its sorted) but at the time literally ground me to a halt. Thankfully a supportive hubby and a few phone calls and email with school and all was well, but let's say I never want a repeat - and the reason why it makes it to my rocking post, because they took me seriously and got a real answer for me! Phew!
Then Tuesday - prom day, said 16 year old learning to tie a tie, funny because I learnt when I went up to secondary, but as they now insist on velcro ties for fear the children might strangle one another (really - really????) he has never had to learn said skill until Tuesday!
So what was I doing Tuesday, a day off to support said 16 year old and his quest to be ready for prom - no I was making a birthday gift for said 16 year old to give to his prom date - nothing like leaving it to the last minute young man!
Prom photos? Well here is said 16 year looking rather dapper in his suit

Best group of 4 friends you could come across!
And this summed it up!
The rest of the week has been crazy madness (but I know you know that that is my life).
I hope you've had a fabulous week, if you fancy joining in pop a post together, pop back and link up.
