This week's smiles....week 77

It's been another week of smiles here at Sewing by Annie's.  Thank you to all that joined in the fun last week....we all have so much to smile about and it's so lovely to share our happy times.

This week I am featuring Kate's super post.  Each week Kate find so much to share that never fails to make me smile and it was the way she described teaching her dogs to use their new dog flap that got me chuckling...I could just imagine them lining up for their lessons and each dog training the others.  Thanks Kate for sharing it with us.

This last week has been full of happy times for me so I'm starting off with a list and then sharing a few snaps.

Here's my list of smiles...
  • We have now signed all the documents for our house sale [ again!!] and are ready to move...it's just playing the waiting game now for the others in the chain [again!!]
  • We had a wonderful afternoon of family fun together at Amy's new house on Saturday [they have 5 acres of grounds around the house]
  • Being given a second bag of fabric, even bigger than the first [pic of some it can be seen in last post] and sharing the excitement of it with friends on Monday
  • Being treated to cinema tickets by Shell...we went to see Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie...such a funny film....thanks Shell x
....my list goes on and on....it's been a great week full of smiles.







Our 5 little grandchildren all enjoying the freedom of the safe space to play at Amy and Dave's new house....childhood should be full of days like those.





Little Steve likes to help his Granddad doing any DIY that needs doing so he was really at home here helping his mummy put together a new Ikea cupboard :-)



The twins can often be seen hand in hand during a day and the first pic of them heading down the beach together made me smile.
The second pic is of Sam taking a quick 10 min power nap during the day and I asked if Lexi was also asleep cos she doesn't usually have a nap in the day now. The reply I got back was..."no, she was cuddling Sam, 'keeping her brother safe' while he had his nap".  Don't you just love them?


I hope you've enjoyed my smiles for this week and will share yours by linking them up below.
Hugs,
Annie x

You have a LOT to smile about this week. Very impressive. Love the photos of the grandees and of course, enjoyed reading the news about the house (AGAIN).

Have a great weekend and keep smiling. That house deal will go through yet. And if it doesn't, at least you'll have a new sewing machine to play with (grin).

Oh that is so cute .... The cousins all look so happy in each other's company. Lexi is certainly looking after her brother I wonder how long if will last ... But the twin bond is very special .... It still is with mine and they are 27

Hi Annie,

I hope the house sale is coming along -- isn't it something, the chain of events that have to happen.
