So, What's Rocking My World Friday... on Monday!
A box of deliciousness arriving in the post. Mmm paint. Was getting very, very low and so ordered some more... haven't bought any in absolutely ages so this was a real treat. The colours are just lovely.
My sister giving me the heads up about one of my favourite ever childhood films being on Amazon at just over £3!! When I went to browse, there was LOADS of my favourite old films at that price so two fell into my basket completely by accident. Much groaning and muttering from Craig when they arrived but I can't wait to watch them.
I can now rectify the terrible misdeed I have done to my children in that they have never heard of Danny Kaye!! Gasp! Either that or, if you listen to Craig, I am going to inflict more of my tat onto them - either way they are in for a fun, fun, fun education in film!
A certain bonkers person phoning me up just as I'd got in the bath. Then, because I took the call and was splashing away merrily and she then heard Ruby come in and proclaim she was going to the loo... well, this was her apparent reaction...
Teehee! Thanks for the laugh on a day when I really didn't think I would Gaily.
The same day Craigy had already taken me out to lunch so we could raise a glass to my Mum. It had been the anniversary of her going. Once again I thought I'd handle it better than I did - strangely it was the day before that got me all emotional, I wasn't so bad on the actual day. But thank you both for being the people you are!
Saturday - should this technically be the coming Rocking Friday? Ah well, it's going in here. Saturday I went to Pickleberry Papercrafts for a workshop with Jane Dean who was brilliant and very, very funny. I spent the whole day making something I really love and not only that... I finally met The Bristol Girls. This is a group of girls I chat to on UKScrappers. One of them, Debbie, was in the original group of girls who took me under their wing when I first started getting back into crafting. That was 4 years ago so it was amazing to properly meet her and the other girls. They've been so supportive through a lot of highs and lows, they may not realise how much but it was fabulous finally meeting them face to face. And blimey I love their accents. I was chuffed to bits when they announced they were coming to Kent to celebrate Jayne's birthday.
This is my version of the box we made - you can see Jane's version that it's based on here.
Look what I rescued - the wetwipes I used, aren't the colours gorgeous? Comes to something when wetwipes rock your world doesn't it?
Then afterwards we went for a wander around Whitstable and had a yummy curry. Really delish.
On Sunday, Craig, the girls and I went to a charity BBQ at the fishing club he goes to. Hottest day of the year. Heat and I generally don't get on but I was able to duck into the shade quite a lot and it was a really lovely day. Devvie held an owl and Ruby even stroked it.
By the sound of it quite a bit was raised for the cancer charity too - they do such a great job every year and it's a lovely day out.
I have to say though, the best part of the day was the bloke with the owl asking Devvie if me, her and Ruby were sisters! Hahahaha! That's the second time in a year she's been asked if me and her are sisters, last time was at Ally Pally. She is not impressed. Teehee! Craig wonders if it means she looks really old or I look really young - I know which I prefer.
Oh yes, thank you also for all your lovely words on my rant on Wednesday. We really are not happy to stay now, we can't get bollards put up as it's the only access to the firm out back. There is CCTV already out front - it was actually the reason I took this house, there is a whacking great camera on a pole directly opposite my front door.
Things are in motion. You wouldn't believe how much has happened since Wednesday - the truck hitting our house seems almost serendipitous now. I'll keep you updated.
So what Rocked your week this week? Why not pop along to Virginia's and play along? You'd be amazed at what good things you can find in a week that you really thought was pants.
Thank you as always for stopping by.
