Here we are again, another week has flown by and we are at Friday giving us chance to reflect and consider the positive elements of the last 7 days, the little silvers linings, small blessings that have occurred it's
Saturday brings Despicable Me 2 at the cinema, said 12 year old has been literally on countdown for this film since the beginning of the year so to get chance to see it a week earlier than anticipated he was not going to refuse. We toddled off on Saturday lunchtime and got to enjoy the film in all it's 3-D glory. If I'm honest I don't think it's as good as the first however, if I had the option of watching 2 hours of minions alone I'd love it because they are fantastic. To say my house has gone a little minion crazy as a result is a slight understatement.
After the film we headed to the drive thru to get 4 (yes I did say 4) Happy Meals as we all wanted Minions - we couldn't help it! We parked up ate the Happy Meal and were all happy with our prize. However, said 12 year old is now obsessing over the rest of the Minions which he's decided he needs in particular the purple one honestly I've not heard the end of it since he started waffling on about the purple one - however, I can't subject him to that much fast food in order to satisfy his minion craving - so if you've got any spare send them this way LOL! Said 12 year old then insisted on a visit to the toy shop so we could check out all the minion related toys, we didn't think they had anything but finally found stuffed into a tiny section on an aisle a small selection of some rather expensive toys, he treated himself to a small cuddly Dave minion which set him back just over £10 - gulp! Well it would have been rude not to!
Saturday evening me and my sister gelli plated - badly - but gelli plated nonetheless - so another positive - sharing the crafting.
Watching films Saturday evening
Sunday morning breakfast cooked by hubby - nom nom nom.
Mowing the lawn finally on Monday, it was nice to see the garden looking a little better (well less neglected anyway).
The girls at work being little stars, I've been off for a while and I've returned to work this week albeit that I'm still a little fragile. They have made the transition back in a lot easier as have a lot of people at work, some I don't see often and they've sent me lovely emails - it's so nice to know there are some beautiful people out there.
The WW girls, you know who you are and you really are one of my greatest blessings!
New Rockettes joining in over the last few weeks, again a huge blessing for which I am truly honoured - thank you for making me smile!
Right I think my dearest people that will wrap up my positives this week, I hope your week has been beautiful and blessed, if it doesn't feel like a great week, take a moment to reflect and see if you can spot the little silver linings through your days. The therapy of focusing on the positives and just letting the negatives go are amazing - try it - you never know you might like it. If you fancy joining in and want to blog about it, pop a post together, pop back and link up so we can come and visit. We are only a small gang, but ones that appreciate how important it is to look on the better side of life. Don't stress if you can't get to it Friday, don't stress if you don't manage every week just clocking those positives is fantastic in itself!
I'll pop a layout on (otherwise this will be a rather unphoto-friendly post). Again using up the papers in the kit I bought off the marketplace on UK Scrappers.
The photo is of said 12 year old eating a giant marshmallow whole - is it just mine or are all boys like this LOL?
