This is really rather late,
and I haven't got much to go on this week's
'happy' list but I still wanted to join in.
It's become really important to me
to make a point of remembering what
has been good and positive about my week.
Day Nurse/Night Nurse and Covonia.
They've got us all through the week.
Hope is back to normal,
Grant and I are still not feeling great
but we're getting there.
Luke, however, is absolutely exhausted still
and although he tried to go back to work
yesterday he had to
come home again after 3 hours.
Glandular fever? I hope not.
I'm going to get him to the doctor tomorrow.
Time in the garden.
The back garden has turned into a jungle over
the last few months of torrential rain
and we ventured out there armed with
kneelers, secateurs and loppers
(maybe we should've taken
scythes and machetes!).
Two days later there's still such
a lot to do but I've enjoyed the
therapy of cutting back and tidying.
Mail Art received brought a big smile to my face.
My friend Virginia created brilliant
and I had particularly admired this one,
so, lovely girl that she is, she sent it to me :)
Isn't it fantastic?!
Unfortunately it suffered a little
bit at the hands of Royal Mail
but I'm going to see that as them
adding their own artistic element to it.
Thank you, Virginia.
Hanging my washing out on the line.
I know, I know!
But the fact is I'm fed up with having
wet washing hanging around the house
and just for a few precious days, I've been
able to hang it out on the line until it's DRY.
It's the simple things that make me happy :)
Facebook chatting with my WW group.
Thank you, girls!
(Virginia, "Sheep, sheep!")
The Olympics Opening Ceremony.
I thought it was FANTASTIC!
How on earth did Danny Boyle
pull all that together?!
The Industrial Revolution, with the green
fields making way for smoke belching
chimneys, the uprooted tree gorging out
the factory workers, the Olympic rings
being forged - just amazing.
Oh, and Daniel Craig as 007 with The Queen,
parachuting out of a helicopter.
The Olympic Flame cauldron was stunning.
I LOVED how the petals lit and
then the whole thing rose to form the flame.
Clever and so beautiful.
I was really proud of Britain and all of
her varied achievements, and
I'm so glad the World Wide Web creator,
was given such worthy recognition.
(although Tim, if you're reading, can you
do something about my Broadband today -
it's SO slow!!).
Ok, that's me done for now.
I've promised myself some arting time this
afternoon, having not done anything for over
a week. I'm keen to get painty.
I'm going to leave my link with Virginia,
Friday Rocking Queen,
and I'll drop by the other Rockettes later.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
