It's been a lovely busy week
with lots to be thankful for.
Luke's 17th birthday was fun when we
all went to the cinema to see
Rise of Planet of the Apes.
(Blog post about it here)
I REALLY enjoyed my day out with
blogging friend Penny when we
went to the
Tracey Emin exhibition.
(Blog post about that here)
We ALL had a super time at
Karen and Barry's lovely new home
when we went to the annual
Urbani Family Day.
I enjoyed catching up with the
Karen and Barry were wonderful hosts
providing delicious food and drinks
throughout the day.
Thank you, guys!
I'm really pleased for Luke that he passed his 'A' levels.
He doesn't enjoy studying and
we are so proud of him and his achievement.
He starts work full time next week in the barbers
and his day release college course starts in September.
Onwards and upwards, Luke!
Many many congratulations to my niece, Olivia
(Karen and Barry's daughter).
She achieved fantastic 'A' level grades which has
earned her a place at Bournemouth University,
her first choice uni.
Darling Rosie Mae survived having a general anesthetic.
She's an old girl and her breath was seriously evil.
The vet said she needed her teeth cleaned, especially as
all the bacteria in her mouth could go into her blood stream
and cause major problems.
Unfortunately, she has a heart murmur
so we were really worried.
But all is well.
She had to have a tooth out as well
but now has the sweetest breath a girl can have.

Against all the odds Susie Cat is still with us.
Because she was refusing to take her tablets
the vet put her on a medicated food,
which initially Susie deigned to eat.
But now she's stopped eating it, no
matter how I try and disguise it.
Back to the drawing board, I guess :o(
Animals, who'd have them?!
Luke survived his first driving lesson!
He really enjoyed it and
'only went off the road once'.
Apparently his instructor (who deserves a medal)
had to brace himself a few times with
repeated requests for
"More brake, more brake!"
We're going to let him have a couple more lessons
before we let him practice in our car :D
Carmen is back in Blogland, hurrah!
Many of us have missed her and we're all
pleased she's back on the internet
and blogging from her lovely new home.
I told you I had a lot to be thankful for
this week, didn't I?
I'm going to post this with Virginia
and then visit the other Rockers.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
