Hello to Friday
and welcome to my list of good things from the week.
Sometimes, it's only when something is taken away that
you realize how much you take it for granted.
One evening this week was an example of this when
we had a series of power cuts.
It only lasted a few hours but I couldn't read (easily),
blog, craft, watch tv, cook, iron etc etc.
I went to bed and caught up on some beauty sleep
and I was very pleased when all was
back to normal in the morning.
Grant and I enjoyed a day out yesterday
when we went to
The Wealden Times Midsummer Fair.
There were lots of stalls selling gorgeous vintage things, jewellery, clothing, 'stuff' for the home,
food, and other lovely things.
It was all very pretty at a beautiful location,
near Tenterden, in Kent.
One day we WILL have chickens......
It was lovely to meet Amanda, who was with
her gorgeous stall selling her beautiful handmade
jewellery and quirky vintage themed goodies and cards.
(She has a blog called Maygreen Fairies).
We bought this delightful bird feeder, made from
an original tea cup and saucer.
I love that this one was from the Queen's coronation.
Deirdre, from Riley Coyote Creations,
has made her own and one day I plan to make some for myself, but in the meantime I'm going to
enjoy this one made for me.
I also bought these wooden carved stamps.
My favourite is the one at the top.
Grant and I sat on straw bales in the sun and
enjoyed the tastiest burgers EVER,
washed down with fresh cloudy apple juice.
I am really looking forward to taking part in......
Kristin (click on her name for more details)
from the 'Twinkle Twinkle' blog
is kindly running this FREE 10 week blog party.
Every week Kristin will set a colour prompt
and you can create whatever you want
(she gives a list of ideas on her blog)
using that prompt,
and then post about it giving her your post link.
I have decided that I will do mine in a
Moleskine Plain Journal,
9cm x 14cm.
The first colour prompt is 'BLUE'.
DD Hope is going to give me a lesson this weekend in
how to use my new camera.
It isn't a posh expensive camera like lots of you lucky girls have but it's better than the one I have
been using (this new one has more mega pixels
which is, apparently, a good thing).
I don't really 'do' instructions, so Hope's read them
and she's going to pass on her wisdom to me.
He he, she is rather useful.
I'm really pleased for Luke, who sat his
History 'A' level today.
He's very happy how it went and thinks he did as well as he could,which is all I want to hear, whatever the result.
Next week he will be sitting his 'A' level Media paper, let's hope he comes out with the same positive reaction.
That's about it for today.
I'm going to leave the link for this post over with
and then I'll drop by the other Rockers to see
what's been good about their weeks.
Have a lovely weekend.
