Have you got that Friday feeling? Hurrah!!!
And this is what I'm shouting "Hurrah!" for at the end of this week.....
Hurrah for Hope!
It was her 14th Birthday yesterday. OMG, 14 years old! Here is Hope as she was only what seems like yesterday

and this is her this evening (holding our birthday card to her). Her special day started off well, but unfortunately she left her bag of lovely birthday presents from her school friends on the train. She was so upset. We've reported it to the Lost Property people and we're just hoping that a nice person will have found it and handed it in. Apparently there is a two week backlog getting found property onto the computer system so we could have a long wait before finding out either way. On a brighter note, I'm taking Hope and her two friends Victoria and Tabby to see the new Harry Potter film tomorrow. Then they're going to come back for pizza and chocolate cake - her request!
Hurrah for Luke!
He bought a lovely card for his sister and the new Avatar (extended edition) dvd for her birthday out of his new wages. Top son
Hurrah for Grant!
We needed a handle for the new door from the sitting room to the conservatory and he quietly accepted that I didn't want one from Homebase/B+Q/Wickes - no, sirree! He happily drove us an hour's journey to The Packhouse in Farnham to find a reclaimed door handle. We found a lovely old handle which will look gor-jus. He also put up some shelves for me so all my art stuff is no longer on the floor (I suppose that's a Hurrah for Ikea shelves too!). I am now 'Organized Artist'. AND, he's plugging away with the kitchen decorating.
Hurrah for Louise!
My charity shop manager friend makes me laugh and laugh. We were standing talking yesterday when the whole wall of laden book shelves in the store/sorting room collapsed, taking out the phone/fax and nearly squashing poor volunteer Cathy. Louise's response at the carnage in front of her? Just took out a biscuit, dunked it in her coffee and said how much she liked the blank wall and that she now had somewhere to put her posters. Tomorrow is the last day for 50p a book at the Oxted Cancer Research shop - there's plenty to choose from!
Hurrah for blog friends!
I love visiting you in your world and I enjoy it when you visit me in mine. If you leave a comment, THANK YOU! It's nice to know who's been calling and your comments are always fun, kind and encouraging.
Hurrah for weekends!
Over too soon but I love 'em.
Talking of weekends, I hope you have a good one.
Bye for now.
