Hello! Late again for this post, I know! I just have not been able to keep up these last weeks and I have no idea why!
Anyway, just a short rocking post as I am off to the dentist again in a minute!
This week I am grateful/thankful for...
* Mothers day and my wonderful children. Mothers day did not get off to a great start in our house, the kids forgot they were going to make me breakfast in bed and then both forgot to say happy mothers day when I got up!! Never mind, they made up for it by baking me a wonderful cake!
And they bought me this beautiful chalkboard and a dragonfly paperweight.
Hubby bought me a bunch of flowers and cooked the dinner in the evening! All in all, a wonderful day!
* It was the spring equinox this week, or as we call it-Ostara. I got together with my Pagan friends to celebrate the return of the light. We blessed our spirit dolls and planted seeds for each with a wish for the coming year. As our seeds grow so will our wishes manifest.
* At the friendship group this week we made things with silk flowers. My volunteer had bought 16 bunches of silk flowers in a closing down sale so we made headbands, candle rings and decorations with them. We all had a great time and nobody wanted to pack up when the session was over so we are going to carry on this week!
* Watching my daughter Bea practise for her hip hop exam! She has come on in leaps and bounds the last few months and I was really impressed with her. We spent an hour going over all her moves for the exam as she is quite nervous about it, I know she will do great, this is her level 3 so shes done it twice before.
*Watching Bea and Caleb have a dance off on the Wii and Caleb beating Bea! She was not impressed with this as she said 'I am the dancer in the family Caleb!'. But Caleb has been sneakily practising in breakfast club at school and we were all quite shocked when he won! He normally looks like some sort of demented octopus when he plays 'Just dance'!
*I have been re reading the Twilight series this week and thoroughly enjoying it! It may not be great literature but I definately class it as one of my all time favourites.
*My dogs. They are so loving and enjoy nothing better than curling up on the sofa with me for cuddles. Willow has been poorly this week and we had to take her to the vets, I was quite worried about her but it's only a urinary tract infection. She has got some tablets and is looking better already. I don't know what I would do without my dogs if anything happened to one of them, they are a part of the family. They both have such different personalities- Willow is a princess, she always has an air about her, so prim and proper and Oakley is such a nutcase, whizzing around, unable to sit still for five minutes and always walking into things and banging his head! I am also grateful for the vets this week for squeezing Willow in on saturday when they were full.
I am sure I have lots of other gratefuls but as I was so busy in the week I didn't write them down as I normally do and can't remember, and the dentist is calling me...urgh!
I am linking this up with Virginia and will catch up with your posts after the dreaded dentist.
Also, here is my Five for Friday post for the challenge over at Lauries Blog. Last week it was your favorite five green things. This was alittle harder than I thought But I found my five!
I used scrapbooking paper, washi tape, alphas and a flower and then sprayed the whole thing with some Dylusions ink sprays.
