Here I go with my Friday
round-up of things/people/events
that have totally made my week ROCK!
the beautiful weather.
I have really enjoyed the sunshine,
warmth and having flip-flop feet.
Going back to work on Tuesday
was actually ok, especially
as I am now only doing 2 days a week
[insert happy face].
I know, I am a spoilt brat.
I am happy that Luke drove back home
safely from a late night 'do' with friends
and that I didn't lay awake in bed
fretting until he arrived home
(at silly o'clock).
I am relieved that, unusually,
Hope's new school shoes did NOT rub
her feet into blistered and bleeding wrecks.
The Paralympics have been
It saddens me that other countries are not
being given the tv coverage that we
are getting - shame on their tv stations.
Did anyone else see the 100m final last night
(with Jonnie Peacock and Oscar Pistorius)?
And that is just one example of how exciting it
has been - and I know will continue to be until
the Ceremony on Sunday.
There will be a huge sport size hole in our
lives come Monday morning!
Luke, Hope and I went to the cinema to see
Did I have a clue what it was about?
Did Luke and Hope?
Oh yes, they knew all the 'ins and outs'
and the 'whys and where-fors'.
I still enjoyed the film.
Lots of beautiful people
and far removed from real life
who gave Hope such a rapturous welcome
upon her return from school.
Grant, who has soldiered on
throughout the Paralympics.
(Hang on in there, love -
not long to go now until we enjoy
some wonderful sunshine in Corfu).
That's about it for today.
I'll post this with Virginia as usual
and later on I'll visit the other Rockers :)
And, it's also time for my August ATC
for Bad Penny's Monthly ATC challenge.
The background is shimmerier
(I know that's not a word but I kinda
like it!) than it looks in the photo.
I didn't realise
(until reading up about them for this ATC)
that dragonflies are flesh eating insects,
that hunt on the wing chasing butterflies and
other insects that form its food.
Oh, but dragonflies are so pretty!
Have a great weekend :)
