For Today...

Outside my window........for once, I'm at home and it's the weekend...........so at the moment as I look outside my lounge window, my son has just gone outside and I think he's going to wait for his pals in our garden....

From the learning rooms........More Psychology :-)

I am thankful for.........managing to have the energy and 'mental' strength all day yesterday, to prepare my things for the Bubblies Retreat next weekend.


From the kitchen..........Not long finished eating some peppered ham and salad wraps for tea.

I am wearing.........pale pink cropped linen trousers, with tee shirt and fake crocs LOL (I use them as slippers LOL!!)

I am reading...............Started to read No Second Chance by Harlan Coben. I really do love his novels, I think he has to be my favourite to date........could all change mind LOL.

I am hoping..........I have 1 hour's lunch and usually come home in the car. Though I've decided to see how long it will take for me to walk home for my lunch. So tomorrow I would like to be able to walk home for lunch, within 10-15 minutes, eat my lunch and then hopefully leave 1.45 and be back at work for just before 2pm. Can I do it.....? I hope to walk to work in the morning too, walk home for lunch and back to work, then walk home when I finish for the day.

I am creating.........well, I've just finished my pages in Karen's CJ and have not planned anything else until after I return from the retreat.

I am praying.........for my Mum's health and for her to be seen by a specialist very soon. I'm also praying for a friend, whose Mum has been given very sad news about her health. I pray my friend will be strong for her Mum.

Around the house...........quietness, with the wonderful sound from the birds outside in the back garden.......

One of my favorite things.........When our son comes into our bedroom and flounces on the bed, together with Ozzy our dog and we chatter, chatter and have a giggle, before Martyn goes to bed.

A few plans for the rest of the week..........Take Hubby's car in for a new clutch tomorrow.......prepare my clothes and last minute check up of my list for the retreat.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you......

This is Ozzy grabbing the sunshine patch on our landing. It was slowly fading away though whilst he was sat there. He tried to squeeze right up to the wall after this, thinking that's where the sun was going too.............aww, bless his bum, he's soooo daft, LOL!!

Sorry that I don't have anything creative to show you, I still haven't caught up with the 52Q's.....yikes LOL, so I will do those after next week. The retreat has been on my mind a lot over the past couple of months, of which I'm really looking forward to meeting up with everyone, but it's also a long weekend away from my family, something that I hardly, well, maybe once in a blue moon, every do. I shall return to said blog LOL, with photos and crafty makes next week. (I may be back on during the week though, LOL). XX
