Wow! Friday again. At the rate this year is flashing by it should soon be Spring - we have 1 blue crocus and 2 snowdrops in the garden. There should be lots more but a certain someone has a habit of digging holes and burying stuff in them.
So... my gratefuls for this week:
Music which has kept me fairly happy this week. This week I have been mainly listening to Classic Soul Anthems - another Christmas present from DS - good choice on his part as it wasn't on my wish list - thanks N. There are three CDs and they cover the 60's, 70's and 80's. The 70's is a particular favourite as those were my Uni/disco years. I did get to do my Diana Ross and the Supremes Impression (Stop! In the Name of Love) when I had the 60's playing - Max was not impressed and retired to bed - not his mind, ours.
Reading (as always)...I've got 4 books on the go in an effort to not finish the Black Dagger Brotherhood too quickly. I'm on book 8 and save it for when I'm soaking in the bath. Good news on that front....book 9 is published on 31st March!! Yay! As a stopgap I've bought the same author's Fallen Angel books for my Kindle - that is my downstairs reading for little breaks during the day/evening. I have 63 books on my Kindle now and have archived almost as many. I downloaded lots of the free/under £1 classics in an effort to read some I've never read before and to re-read some childhood favourites. I still enjoy my trashy novels but am being more "discerning" - I always check the size of the download as lots of them aren't novels but novellas - hence the cheapness I suppose. In bed I'm reading "Encore Valentine" by Adriana Trigiani (that will be heading to the NE and my SIL soon) and a French novel I picked up in Le Touquet.
Crafting. I've managed 2 LOs and a card this week and will be spending tomorrow at an all day crop at A Maze of Memories (wish I was with Christina, the owner, though - she's going to be at a retailer event with Sir Tim). Sighs of envy.
My boys - all three of them for being loving and thoughtful this week. Max has just given me a wonderful hug even though I locked him in the bedroom so I could vaccuum - he barks non-stop and tries to bite the hoover if he's in the room.
And, as always, friends for making me laugh (mainly on Facebook), for inspiring me through their blogs (and making me laugh too Joanna!!) and simply for popping round for coffee and swapping scrap goodies.
Weds. was not such a good day as it would have been Dad's 85th birthday. I found comfort in doing a LO of him as a child.
Earlier in the week I did a LO for a Leave Your Legacy challenge. Sue posed 10 questions to be answered by you and your OH (like Mr & Mrs)to see how well he knows you. David managed 7/10 - he failed on my ideal job, what I thought my best feature is and my favourite colour - in his defence we have only been married for 29 years. lol
I wanted to have a wedding photo and a more recent one of the two of us but we don't have any - it's always one or the other of us behind the camera.
Hope you've all had a good week and have an even better weekend.
