Well I think the biggest happy this week has to be my niece, not only did she did the pretty mudders race at the weekend, raising money for cancer research charity
She also had her prom, here she is looking absolutely stunning and she's not yet 16! Me, my Mum and my sister were all very teary as we took photos, I raced home from work to get to see her, she looked utterly amazing!
There were other positives in the week but many of those disappeared into the background as you can probably appreciate!
We did some fun crafting activities on Friday evening
And worked on my peg loom
We also discovered the amazing Wingham Wool Works which is on the doorstep, an absolute heaven for all things wool!
Said 14 year old went off for a friends birthday with a cinema trip and TGI Fridays afterwards so we had a quiet Saturday afternoon and early evening, we managed to grab ourselves a meal at our local pub.
Sunday we toddled off to the cinema to watch a recorded stage play of Midsummer Night's Dream which was great, although proved a rather expensive sleep for said 14 year old - hurrumph!!!
Monday brought week three of the summer of colour challenge and this week I created seahorses.
Talking of said 14 year old, I'm grateful that he went off and had his first lot of jabs for his Lesotho trip, I'm also very grateful that he remembered that we had a school meeting on Tuesday as we had failed to put it on the calendar, I'm glad he was happy to come with us (despite the scary subject of how much they are changing the GCSE exams). And I've also got my fingers and toes crossed for him later when he is having a tooth removed, his first, it's actually a baby tooth and there isn't full space for it and there isn't one underneath which means it's causing problems with his other teeth which we don't want to decay as a result, so he's having it pulled, we are all somewhat apprehensive about it, so please think positive thoughts that it is a quick and simple process.
So there we have it (and the week has flown by literally!). How was yours were there any happy moments, silver linings that made you smile and reminded you of the gift of life, you know the one where you wake up and say yes - another day!
If you fancy joining in then pop a post together come back, link up and we shall come and visit, no blog, no problem, leave me a comment telling me your positives, or just sit quietly for 10 minutes and remember the highlights of the week, it is far too easy to dwell on the negative moments of life rather than the positives.
