Rockin' my world Friday

Hi folks Friday again and a day I can play along with sharing my list of happy thoughts this week. I am typing on a happy thought as I have a new laptop! Never had one before and I must say I am rather loving it! So thanks hubby for my pressie xx
No 1 son has grown his hair! Now this may not seem a big thing but he has been shaving his head for the last 3 years and I have not dared say I hated it. Now he has decided its a new start with his place at Manchester Uni secure for the full time Masters he wants to study he has grown it back and I love it! He is not as keen on me touching it, as I am stroking it lots,but hey he will be gone to Uni soon enough so I wont be able to then LOL.
No 2 son sets off tomorrow for a week in Edinburgh with his band. They are playing at a musical called Rent - his first proper musical job. They are all excited and our house will be bursting at the seams tonight as we put them all up over night before setting off! I love it that our kids feel happy to bring their friends here - its not the ritz and we dont have much but they are all welcome!
Our Megs is away on hols which isnt a good thing for me but a lovely thing for her. She has gone with my Mum and Bro with his family and I am sister sitting for our Amy who has Downs Syndrome. She lives next door - the houses are inter connected - and thinks she is looking after me :0) We stayed up late watching Mamamia and drinking red wine last night which she loved!
So I have had a week to craft and do a little cleaning. As the notice in the house says I am Not a Domestic Goddess so I hate having to do chores on my time off but of course some do need doing in the course of a week! The cooker especially begged attention and is now gleaming!
I went to the Molly Blooms class last Sunday - what fun that was and I have really enjoyed playing with my purchases this week some of which I will share very soon. 2 Christmas card classes this week - both quiet but its holiday season so not to worry. We had lots of fun anyway.
I have really enjoyed driving when I could too. Simple things mean so much when they have been taken away from you.
I have loved the company of everyone I have spent time with this week especially my lovely pal Georgina last Sunday at The Class. She made me a wonderful Alice in Wonderland stationary kit and a darling little hankie box too. Love it. Her daughter Jo made me a fab calendar book as well - I am lucky to know these wonderful folks who fill my life with joy and friendship. Along with my family, friends are the most important things in my life and I would do all I could for them and I know they would do for me - that has to be my biggest blessings and I love them all.

Do stop by The Celtic house where counting your blessings happens every week


  1. Beautiful list of thankfuls Janet as always, glad you have had such an awesome week! It always makes me feel happy to see others posts before mine, I am running behind this morning - had a rare lie in LOL!

    Hope you have a beautiful and blessed weekend

  2. Awesome list Janet - you've had such a good week.Had a wry smile at Amy thinking she's looking after you - you're obviously both good at taking care of each wine and Mamma Mia sounds like a perfect evening to me. :)
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs xx

  3. Red wine and Mamma Mia, what more can a girl want! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with a houseful of lads, noisy and messy, but fun! I never miss a chance to stroke my son, he does some amazing body swerves to avoid them!!

    Have a great weekend - how about red wine and Dirty Dancing tonight?!
