This week's smiles...week 59

What a wonderful bunch you all are.  We had so many fab happy posts again last week and I would like to thank all that took time out of their busy lives to join in making the world a happier place by sharing their smiles.  I am featuring two blogs this week....

The first is Laura's gorgeous photo of her daffodil ...what a gorgeous bright yellow it is and it just has to mean that spring is on it's way......wahoooooooo.  Thanks for sharing that gorgeous photo Laura.

The other blog I'm sharing is my big sister Jo's.  If you haven't seen the gorgeous card she made for my hubby's birthday it's well worth popping over to have a look at.  She is so clever....he loved it and so did everyone who saw it  :-)

This week has been full of smiles for me.  My darling hubby had a BIG birthday on Monday so since last Friday's smiley post there has been lots of celebrations including a surprise party with about 30 of our dearest friends and family on Sunday. What made it so very special was the fact our three 'children' had plotted, planned and worked together to organise it all without either of us knowing a thing about it.  :-)  I really didn't know we had brought them up to be so devious :-)

Here are a few pics to share with you...




I have a feeling 5 little people just love their Granddad.  The gorgeous banner was made by our son-in-law Dave and had loads of photos showing the many stages in life of the birthday boy :-)

....and yes that really is a builder's bum birthday cake....it caused so many giggles.



The other thing I want to share with you is this poster that I found on Pinterest....






Having now knitted over 90 house moving, stress busting, quilt squares you can well imagine just how many lives have been saved!!!....mostly estate agents and solicitors  :-) :-)






There you go. I've shared some of the many smiles from my week.  Why not share some of yours by linking them below?  Pleeeeeeaaaasssseeeee  :-)

Hugs,
Annie x

I laughed out loud when I saw that cake. I even had to enlarge it to get a better look at it. That was FUNNY.

And of course, I laughed at the sign you found. I think I should make one that says "I make art so I don't kill Bleubeard (grin)."

Have a wonderful Friday, dear Annie and keep smiling, because I know you have a lot to smile about. Now I'm off to bed and will be by to see others after I spend the day tomorrow (oops, today) running necessary errands.

Love the cake!! Happy Belated to Doddy, he looks as though he was enjoying himself :-)
I laughed at that Knit quote...it is a great stress reliever. The crosser I am, the faster I knit, but the tension is all to pot!!
Hugs, LLJ xx
