Hello to you on the first Friday of July.
It's the time of the week when I look back at the week
and pick out the bits that have made
it better than it would otherwise have been.
On Wednesday, Grant and I celebrated our
16 year Wedding Anniversary.
It's been a very easy and lovely 16 years with him.
We didn't do anything spectacular, just a
quiet night in with a glass of wine
and Lord Sugar (we watched The Apprentice).
Hope is happy now she's made some 'fork biscuits'
to replace others eaten by The Dog.
Long story cut short -
DD Hope made some biscuits at school,
and she was very proud of them.
We said we'd have some later.
DS Luke sneaked downstairs, opened the box,
took a couple, and just laid the lid on top.
Grant, Hope and I were at the bottom of the garden,
chatting in the early evening sun.
The Dog went indoors.
After 5 minutes, rest of family went indoors.
NO biscuits left in box.
Not a crumb.
Sheepish looking dog, licking lips.
Bad Dog, Rosie Mae,
(but extremely happy dog, Rosie Mae).
I enjoyed a school trip to The British Museum,
where we went to look at the Egyptian artefacts.

The covered central court area, completed in 2000,
is absolutely stunning.
I had a group of just 5 children, who were very well
behaved, interested and well informed.
I was so proud of them.
And I didn't lose any of them, phew!
It was an extremely tiring day
(long journeys and scary responsibility in
such a busy place).
Susie the cat tried to remind me how cats
were revered in Ancient Egypt
but then I showed her the picture of the mummified cat.
She's been strangely quiet since!
I have signed up for Lenna's new Postcard Mail Art Swap.
Pop over to Creative Swaps for details.
Lenna is also running an ATC Swap, which looks fun too.
Well that's about it for today.
A shorter list than usual, maybe.
I will be raising a glass in memory of my Dad tomorrow,
the first anniversary of his death.
OK, I'm off to Virginia to post this link and then I'll visit the other Rockers for a catch up.
Wanna come with me?
Come on then, click here...........
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
