Welcome to my weekly list of things that
have made the last 7 days better.
I've felt a bit grotty
-headache/sore throat/backache -
but I know that's just a passing niggle
and have still found some positives to highlight.
It's the end of term, hurrah!
A whole week off.
We haven't got much planned -
DD Hope is having braces fitted (ouch!),
and we're also planning to finally take a
previously postponed trip to London to
The Victoria and Albert Museum
and then we'll pop next door to
The Natural History Museum
I enjoyed lunch with Grant's parents,
John and Barb, last Sunday.
Luke was at a Hair Salon Show with his
Barber Shop colleagues
(he came home with news of a £400+ comb!),
so it was just me, Grant and Hope.
Very tasty food
(which neither Barb nor I had had to slave over a
hot oven to prepare, bliss!)
and great company.
Matt Cardle's new album,
The cd arrived today,
and at the risk of sounding like a 12 year old,
I'm LOVIN' it!
His success is all down to me, you understand
(with all the voting I did for him on last year's X Factor).
I'm surprised he didn't send me a signed copy of his
album but I expect he's a bit busy.
I don't really know who I'm going to vote for this year -
last week Hope and I voted for Johnny.
We know he won't win (at least we don't think he will,
what a bizarre result that would be!), but we just like him.
And he's very funny.
Carmen has furnished me with the details
of my 'victim' for her fun Secret Santa.
|(Carmen's very first ATC!)|
I've started my stalking to get an good idea
of what this person might like/dislike, and
I've got a few ideas already....... ;o)
DH Grant ~ for being lovely (as usual)
and for not getting too cross when I,
yet again, failed to get petrol for the car
and was driving around on petrol fumes.
(Although I could hear him muttering,
"silt in the petrol tank......ruin the engine....
she could end up stranded on a dark country lane... etc etc").
DS Luke ~ for always making me laugh
(even when he's actually being really annoying).
DD Hope ~ for her constant friendship and perfect
cups of Earl Grey tea (using our groovy new
see through kettle with coloured lights -
she insists on the kitchen lights being
turned off to get the best discotheque effect.
She really needs to get out more!).
Rosie Mae ~ for never QUITE killing me on the stairs
(despite her best efforts).
Susie Tu ~ for finally deciding that, just for now,
she WILL eat the medicated
food that she needs to help keep her alive
(and that she's ignored for the past month, grrrrr!).
That's just about it for this week,
I'll whizz over to Virginia's with my link
(she is, after all, our lovely Rocking Queen. I
hope she's feeling better because she's been feeling
very poorly) and pop over to see what's been good
for the other Rockers this week.
Thank you for reading,
whatever you're up to this weekend,
keep safe and have fun.
ps Trip to Highgate Cemetery (mentioned in
last week's Rocking post) postponed until the
Spring due to us girls feeling very under the weather
and we feared we'd be mistaken for one of its
'residents' if dragged ourselves up the hill from
Archway to Highgate.
As Luke would say, "Laters, girls".
