So its Friday again and time to share what has rocked my world this week.
Last week saw another Lovin' ink retreat - which seriously has to be top of the list. I don't often add stuff before my family but honestly the time with our retreaters is amazingly special.
The pictures speak for themselves really and can be found here.
Each person embraced the ideas and experimented with their own which is an utter delight to see. Their pride in their projects shines from them.
Other delights from the weekend were Siobhans shortbread, Lindas chocs, Vikkis cakes and Phillipes fruit pies - poor Emma didnt get a sniff at them they were so popular!
An amazing weekend.
Next has to be meeting up with my lovely pals Jo and Georgina who could not make the retreat but came to Embsay for a play on Monday which was fun.
Georgina is the kindest sweetest Lady and I feel so lucky to have met her. Do stop by and say hello here.
Tuesday and Wednesday were not that cracking to be honest - tiredness from the retreat and the comedown from the high hit me hard but I did manage a little creativity and a debrief about the weekend with Michelle where plans for next March are now developing........
My Cousin Steph did call for a cuppa - she is the one who was ill a few weeks ago. Well thank goodness she is on the mend. Having been told she had 3 days to live without the op to have a stoma fitted she is looking great. She said she has been fighting depression off and trying to remain positive is hard but she did look amazing and just goes to show how ill she was before without any of us knowing.
Yesterday was a work day and Megsy went to see the dietician alone for the first time. I was thrilled when she told me they have come up with a plan to exercise and have breakfast which Megs feels able to achieve - I so want her to feel in control. (For those of you who dont know she has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which was diagnosed last year.) I was pleased my perseverance with the dietician had helped her as both the consultant and our GP thought healthy eating would be enough but it really is food types that will help and the dietician is obviously connecting well with her to empower her with her future.
That was a brilliant plus this week.
This arrived today - Megsy and I have been waiting all week for it so snuggled down to watch it tonight
Even though we saw it at the cinema it was still fabulous to watch and has made us eager to see the Part 2 as soon as it comes out.
Bellas eyes are the last thing you see as the film ends and she becomes a stunning Vampire
We loved it!
So thats my week right up until tonight.
Hope you can find lots to be thankful for - do stop by The Celtic House where Virginia hosts the most positive weekly experience for life not just for Craft.
