By the time you're reading this
I'll be on my way to spend a
'girls night in'
So that's number one on this week's
Rocking Friday list -
I'm really looking forward to spending
some time with Penny,
meeting her bonkers animals and son, Joe
- who is probably also a bit bonkers -
but I won't meet her husband Roddy nor daughter Jess
because they are in sunny Antigua awaiting
Penny and Joe's arrival next week.
Penny's going to show me round the village where
she lives and I'll meet her friends.
I'll be taking my camera...........:o)
I'm so proud of DD Hope for making a
commitment to volunteer every Saturday
at the Last Chance Animal Rescue centre,
which is local to us
(and it's where we found darling Rosie Mae
all those years ago,
when Hope was a toddler in a pushchair).
She started last Saturday.
She was quite nervous, but I was confident she'd be ok
- rescued animals is a subject close to her heart
(for her Public Speaking module at school
she chose to talk about why you should choose a
rescue pet. It choked me up when she referred
to Rosie Mae as her best friend).
She spent the morning with another young volunteer
cleaning out the many many cat litter trays,
and then her 'job' was to play with the cats,
or simply give them a quiet cuddle.
She loved it.
I've had to make it QUITE CLEAR, however, that
we WILL NOT be taking on any more animals.
For the time being anyway............;o)
I've got all my Christmas present shopping done, hurrah!
Food shopping ordered from the lovely Abel and Cole,
and delivery booked.
At last, I'll be sending out my Secret Santa
parcel this morning (apologies to Carmen,
SS organiser, for it being a teeny bit late).
I really hope my
victim recipient likes it.
I received a lovely surprise packet from
SusieJ this week, full of Christmas goodies.
I was going to save opening it 'til Christmas but
Susie says I don't have to so there was a
frenzied ripping of paper to reveal
all of this.....
Beautifully made ATC's, a gorgeous tag,
and so many goodies.
I'm going to save this package, however,
until Christmas Day.
I am, I really really am...........!
Thank you so much, Susie,
Christmas certainly came early xx
An 'aw' moment
(or an 'ow' moment!).
Ds Luke is so skinny that his new
cotton work shirts are rubbing his
shoulders quite raw.
He blames my healthy eating regime.
I blame his father,
with his coat-hanger-like shoulder blades.
That's all my Rocking today, folks!
As always, thank you for reading
and for leaving a comment.
Have yourselves a lovely weekend
and keep safe.
