Good Evening lovely people, I'm so sorry for being late it has just been a rather hectic day, but there is always time for
First up a fun visit to Ikea last Friday. Said 17 year old decided he fancied a jaunt out as well so we all went. We wandered around the room settings and I found this rather clever reading light that I'm tempted by, hubby likes to read when me and said 17 year old are watching TV but the light that end of the room isn't good enough to read by at this time of year, this light may well do the trick, however we didn't buy it as I'm still undecided!
There is no rational for the local Ikea having a Harley Davidson in the middle of the store, but you can see the look in his eyes at this very beautiful machine! Even hubby was drooling!
Me and hubby had a lovely meal last weekend when said 17 year old was staying at his girlfriends. I lit lots of candles, but we still ended up with one of the side lights on, I need to sort out the candelabra.
Now I've sourced the right ink for my glass fountain pen (thank you Mum for the info), I've had a good practice and play with my pen, I think I need some handwriting paper to really get to grips with it.
Sunday we went for a walk again around the local dam, it's very very green at the moment as you can see, but that old winter green rather than the bright spring and summer green. I can't wait to start seeing the buds appear on the trees. Although I must admit I have enjoyed hearing the birds tweeting more recently!
We hadn't checked the weather before we set off, which is probably a good thing as it kept clouding over, it made the dam very atmospheric! There is something about being near large expanses of water that make me very happy and content.
Hubby was playing with his new camera
I enjoyed the blue skies whilst they lasted
We popped off at the Post Office on the way back so we could source some cash, it doubles as a sweetie shop, how tempting does it look!
It's been a bit of a mixed week work wise, I can't quite work out why still or what's going on but I'm still getting a negative vibe about things at the moment. I'm hoping it will disappear as some of the urgent jobs get dealt with, but we shall see. I've had a serious heart to heart with hubby about the situation which always helps, so my mahoosive grateful relating to this situation is hubby being the rational level headed one when I'm struggling on this front.
Wednesday I had an appointment at an occupational health service linked with my inflamed tendons in my hands, on my way back to work (despite the crazy rain/snow/sleet and the bright sunshine) I walked past this fabulous piece of artwork!
And I managed a photo a bit closer, the artist is known as Phlegm and is local to the area, but has worked internationally over recent years, I love his work as its incredibly thought provoking!
The Super Blue Blood Moon (I think was it's name), I didn't get to see the 'red' bit but I was impressed with the brightness (apparently 7% brighter than it is normally) and on the following evening we caught it coming up and it was huge, it made me smile and think about Gothic tales and Dracula
And that my lovely people is that. I hope you've all had a lovely week and not worked too hard, hopefully some of my lovely Rockettes will have already posted (if you have hopefully I'll have been able to link you before you get here). Until next week
