What a busy week!
I'm a little bit late with my
Rocking Friday post.
I don't suppose you mind too much
as I really don't think your lives pivot on me
posting on my blog.
I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
Anyway, on with the positives picked out
of this last week.
Last day of term for me and DD Hope.
that was quite a slog for both of us.
But we made it
and now we've got a couple of weeks
off to enjoy.
I came downstairs yesterday morning to find
this rather pathetic sight.
Darling Rosie Mae, who sleeps in the kitchen at night,
had dragged her two blankies (looking like rags here)
from her bed and, just like Cinderella,
was sleeping in front of the cold (unlit) oven.
But unlike Cinderella, she hadn't cleaned
the oven first, grrrr.
You will NOT go to the ball, Cinders!
(Does that make me the Wicked step-mother
or an ugly sister, I wonder?).
Just as well trusty Ken from Ovenu is coming
next week to give my oven it's pre-Christmas
spruce up. (I know, how daft - having the
oven cleaned to then go and cook
a huge spitty, stinky Christmas roastie in it!).
The Christmas decs at home are finally up.
There's nothing very classy or coordinated about them,
but I love 'em - the twinkly lights,
the old familiar decorations brought out year after year,
and the smell of the Christmas tree.
Christmas is coming, the magic is here.
I have been enjoying listening to
the Christina Perry cd, Lovestrong,
that DS Luke gave me as a birthday present.
Jar of Hearts
is one of the songs.
This girl warms my heart for lots of reasons.
She's been through some dreadful family sadness
recently, yet still organised a fun crafty
(my mystery gifts have arrived and are sitting under
the tree unopened because I am a GOOD GIRL, Santa,
d'you hear, a GOOD GIRL!),
and then she went and sent me this birthday pressie.....

Initially I looked for spy cameras around my home and checked my phone hadn't been bugged
but then I worked it out -
she'd stalked my Amazon wish list
(I must find out how to do that)
and had it sent to me.
I LOVE IT, Carmen.
Thank you so much, my friend.
And this clip is for those of you who
have ever been to watch a Nativity play.
My friend Ewan (thanks Ewan!)
sent it to me and it brings
tears to my eyes.
It is entitled,
'Funniest Christmas Angel'......
That's all folks!
Thank you for joining me in my Rocking post,
I'll be back soon.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
