Good morning lovely people, time to celebrate the positive moments and silver linings in our week as it is time for
First up a lovely celebratory meal out with my Mum last Friday
We went to a place we haven't visited before and had a fantastic night out, really lovely company and really lovely food!
I managed to get a shot of the two birthday people
And one of me and my little sis
And one of my niece and her boyfriend
Said 18 year old and his girlfriend were there but next to me so I didn't manage a photo of them, must try harder!
Saturday saw us venturing out to catch up with lil bro and co
I took two dreadful pictures, but still managed to document the catch up - sort of nearly almost
Sunday we had an invite to a family Christening, it was such a lovely celebration and I'm really glad I went as I managed to catch up with cousins my Aunty and Uncle
The service was lovely and the do afterwards was in a really beautiful venue.
Monday saw me catching up with an old work colleague it must be a year since we saw one another, but it is always good to have a catch up and a proper natter and put the world to rights.
Tuesday I went to town with Mum to have another proper catch up, we sat drinking coffee at a lovely Italian on the High Street, then had a wander before ending back at the same place for a bite to eat for lunch. It was really good to catch up.
As I've been off this week (and hubby hasn't) I've also managed to find some crafting time, which is always good for the soul, mind you I was mighty rusty to begin with, but soon got into my stride.
This one documents these two working together one holiday, it made me smile as I used to have my niece frequently when she was little, so it was lovely to hear them chatting at the table, both working in their own artistic endeavours!
I like the layout so much I used the same 'sketch' to create this one, documenting said 18 year old's post GCSE exam present from 2017 (yes I am that behind).
And then finally this one from our first art journal weekend at the local craft shop with Kate Crane, said 18 year old did insist on going off at a tangent, whenever Kate suggested we don't do something he had to experiment to find out why - I don't know who he takes after!
Then Wednesday night we got cheap as chip tickets for an ice hockey match, it was a grand night out but pretty poor score board at the end of the night. We enjoyed it nonetheless.
And that lovely people brings me to today, which is Thursday, I'm preparing my post in advance as I have a lot to sort tomorrow and didn't want it being its usual late self, it's amazing what you can get done when you have time for yourself!
I hope you've had a fabulous week and that you've managed to find the silver linings, if you fancy joining in pop a post together, pop back link up and we can come and visit!
Kate and Lisca I hope you've both had a beautiful and blessed week.
