Friday Smiles

Ohh dear, It seems that I have neglected this blog for a little while. I DO have another- full of crafty stuff (here)
I have had lots so smile about too - it's just that Fridays are usually quite busy and I am not organised enough to create a post in time for the blog hop!
The biggest smile today is that we have reached half term again . Its not going to be great weather and its only a week off so I intend to just catch up on house work and spend the rest of the time in my craft room :)
Hubby bought me this for my birthday a couple of weeks ago :

I Love it and am really looking forward to playing with it over the half term.

Although I do Love will probably be a glass of wine I celebrate the half term with this evening .
 Have a great week!

Happy New Year

Just sharing some of  our Christmas photos with you. This is our eldest -  Natalie. I bought everyone Christmas t shirts too wear on Christmas morning.


Just a few of the gifts under the tree. 

Dan and Dex waiting for breakfast .This year we had THIS with bacon yummm.

I always make loads of sausage rolls .

We all sat down to eat our meal (my craft table) ��

I saw this on face book and had a go.

My boss knows me SO well! I love it.

Back to work on Monday - at least i will know what day it is!
I spent all day the other day backing up my PC - 12 discs later-done.
I updated to Windows 10, which i am liking so far. The only problem i have is that my PC ( lenovo Ideacentre) now won't recognize my blue tooth keyboard. I have checked all the forums and this seems very common with no good results yet. I am now waiting for a usb keyboard to arrive as it takes so long to use this touchscreen one.
Happy New Year to you all.

Friday Smiles on Saturday

 I was SO lucky to be able to go on the school media studies trip to Warner Brothers Studio in London to the Harry Potter tour on Friday.

 Here are the yr 10 and 11 students just before the class of photography. We were really lucky to sit in on the class where they were about film photography and learned lots of secrets of filming.

 The new station -  I loved that we could walk onto the train and look into the carriages.

The station gift shop.
 Butter beer Ice cream - slightly less sickly than the butter beer.

 I loved this bit of the tour - I used to be a beauty therapist and hairdresser and I even made a few hair pieces at college. At one point , this was the sort of job I wanted to do.

wandering along Diagon ally.
 If you get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it.

Late - Friday Smiles

I promise I WAS smiling Yesterday as we have finally come to half term. I didn't get home until almost 10pm though as we had a music evening , which was WONDERFUL. We have such talented pupils.
So it is now Saturday morning and I managed to get a lay in ( Yayyy) .
I do have loads to do and catch up on - New bathroom installed on Monday.  Gp and dentist appointments ( all boring) . Clearing the garden ready for spring ( I don't do winter gardening :) ). And......... the long awaited ATDML retreat next Friday ...Heaven .

Annie answered some questions and suggested that we also do the same . So here you go:

TIME: 9.50 am Saturday morning.
LOCATION:  I'm sat at my PC in my craft/dining room.
FEELING: Relaxed and stress free as I am on the first day of half term. ( It won't last as I am sure the bathroom being out of action for a few days will stress me - we only have one bath room and there are 5 of us!)
LOVING: Some peace and quite.
READING:  Still reading "the husbands secret" which I might actually get time to finish this week without falling asleep after 2 pages :)
DRINKING:  My first cup of coffee ( which has gone cold so i need a top up ) I will open a bottle of wine this evening as I don't cook on a Saturday ( we have Chinese ).
ANTICIPATING:  Definitely ATDML retreat - I need to get my stash sorted and packed.
LISTENING TO: My play list on iTunes ( especially when hubby is watching sport on TV )
WATCHING:  Hemlock Grove/ the walking dead? the black list is back on Friday
PLANNING:  To tidy and clean - ha ha its never ending. Hubby wants to go out on Sunday so looking for somewhere nice to go.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Spring - I know autumn is pretty but there are too many bugs at school and they can't seem to get the heating right - I hate dark days So definitely Spring .
CREATING: A page or two in my art journal - all new to me so enjoying new products and new ways to use old ones. Tags, Christmas cards ( 100's to do) and mini calenders for work mates( the list gets longer each year!)
NEED TO FINISH:  This post and get on with it all ;)
WISHING:  Definitely for warm sunny days and that we all get though the Winter bug free.

Quick Catch up

Watching ...

We really like fairytale/horror in our house which is weird as I hate horror films.
Hubs and I are almost at the end of season one - season three is about to start soon, so we need to get a move on.

 We started watching this one ( it makes me jump a bit though) daughter is already finishing season two ( there are at least 10 seasons)

Reading ....

 Half way though this book on my kindle - its funny as a work colleague has just read it too and recommend it to be and i was already reading it.

 This was delivered last week. I LOVE nick Sparks and have read everyone of his books . Can wait to start on this one.

Days out ....

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to go to the Globe theater to see this. It was an evening performance and we left  straight after school at 4pm and got home at 1.30- I was not that well and I am sure I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have such a bad head cold. It was still a lovely experience.

Friday smiles

Missed the last two Fridays :( 
I have had stuff to smile about - just been so busy! 
Last Friday I went to the Globe theater straight after work to see "measure for measure" , we got back at 2am and by then I was full of cold. Its well on the way out now thank goodness.

Today my baby boy is 22. I love him to bits. He is such a sweetie. This photo was taken earlier in the year, the facial hair has gone now. He asks for very little and when he is not doing voluntary work or winding up his sisters, is a joy to have around.

Have a great Week.
