The week that was .... week 4

As part of my one little word for 2016 which is "GROWTH", I want to share more on my blog and get more involved in the blogging community. So I've been having a think, and writing down lots of ideas, and one of those, was to share with you my past week.  This would also be a big help when it comes to project life and as a memory jog.  My friend Jo, shares her week on her blog, and I love seeing what she's been up to ... the good and the bad, so here is mine.

The week that was ... full of happy things

I'm not one of those people that has loads of friends. Maybe its because we never had children and I never got into the mummy groups, but those I have, accept me totally and are the best friends anyone could ever wish for. One of those, is Maria and I'm also incredible lucky to have her as my next door neighbour.  Maria or should I use her proper name, Aunty Maria adores the bears and they adore her ... as you can see.  Anyway, she popped in for a visit as guess what? she's going to do Project Life, (how great is that) anyhow, she came bearing gifts ...
She saw this fabulous vase in a charity shop, and knows I have a slight obsession with Emma Bridgewater ... how lucky am I. 

Also last week, the postman knocked and handed me my Cocoa Daisy parcel .... oh its truly a gorgeous kit and I can't wait to dive in.
My blog isn't all about me (or the bears) ... Simon is on instagram now and he takes lots of photos during the day for me, to add into Project Life.  I think I also mentioned he's joined Slimming World again, and just after 2 weeks, he is the proud owner of a certificate. 
And lastly we're looking at changing our big car ... I love the audi but it's time for a change, so we're testing driving a few, and last weekend we took this baby out for a drive ... oh my, what a beauty. 
There you have a round up of my week.  I'm looking forward to sharing with you my everyday happenings, but I now need to get back to my note books as I've still loads of ideas bouncing around in my head.
