Rocking My World Friday...

I think I should start calling my posts Rocking My World Monday :) I'm sure Virginia doesn't mind and would me more shocked if I did actually post on a Friday!

Things that have made me smile this week...

We've just got back from a long weekend in Hastings visiting Craig's Mum. Always nice to have longer than a day there and not have to rush back. Am sure Cooper would move in permanently  - he gets so spoilt with doggy treats and loves racing around her huge garden. We only have a teeny tiny back garden here.

Losing another 2lbs this week. That brings me up to 7lbs (half a stone people! Woohoo!) in two weeks. That's despite the very well stocked biscuit box at Craig's Mums ;)

Pizza toast - my favourite lunch of the moment. Slice of wholemeal bread, spread with tomato purée  sprinkled with mixed herbs, topped with mushrooms, peppers and cheese, whacked in the oven for 10 minutes, served on a big old bed of salad leaves... and Bobs your Uncle. For someone on Slimming World it works out at just half a syn and tastes so naughty. The cheese and bread are 1 HexA and 1 HexB. Nommy nom nom. I keep meaning to take a piccie for this post but I scoff it to quick. 

Looking forward to a new free art class starting March 1st, The Strathmore Abstract Fine Art Painting with Mixed Media class. Looks fun.

Still getting on top of my organisational dysfunction. Have mailed out a few bits I was behind on this week and am also getting a kind of rota going housework wise and art wise too. Feels good to have a bit more control. Thank you to the people who helped me sort myself out. (Lists, I love lists!) - also Craig for pushing me to organise my little corner of the dining room, lovely to be able to reach my magazines and sketchbooks without fearing an avalanche.

Pinterest - loving all the tutorials I've been watching on there - stuff I wouldn't think to search on YouTube off my own back. Talented artists generously sharing how they work.

Daffodils, snow drops and crocuses peeking through and braving this chilly weather.

Central heating.

A bubby that sleeps through the night :)

The people I love.

Have a lovely week people - remember to stop and take time to notice the little things :) Thanks for stopping by.
