This week's smiles....week 69

Phew! What a week it's been.

We had some really fab posts linked up last week so many thanks to all that joined in the fun.  This week I'm featuring Laura's fab pic of her sparrowhawk that found it's way onto a page in the Mid Sussex Times.  Thanks for sharing it with us Laura and huge congrats to you.

So folks what has made me smile this week?.....now where do I start?

It could be the little matter that yesterday morning I sold the house and bought a bungalow.  :-)  As you can imagine I'm not getting too excited til we actually have the keys in our hands this time but I know it's the news so many of you wonderful blogging friends out there has been waiting for.

Or it could be that Wednesday evening we picked this little run about up for me from the garage...

It's a little blue Citroen C3 but as you can see it has flowers on the back and on the back window it says...Powered by Fairy dust.  It's certainly made me smile and of course has put a smile on the faces of my little Grandchildren.  :-)

Or of course it could be this latest pic Shell sent me of Lexi.....that girl sure has attitude  :-)
I think she may be on the stage one day and as last Saturday she went to her first ballet class and really loved it I wouldn't be surprised by anything.

As you can imagine it's been quite a week for us....I'm a little stunned as yet with all that's happened but am sure it will all sink in soon.  :-)  :-)  :-)
If you have something that has made you smile this week please link it up below and share it with us.

WOW!!! What fantastic NEWS. Wonderful, in fact. I'm simply thrilled for you. It's about time. Now all those stress busting squares were worth it!

And what better than Lexi with her attitude? I guess fairy dust might come in a close second. This is truly a Friday to smile about.
