Happy Friday to you all and thanks to those who took time out of their busy lives to join in the fun last week.
I am featuring Robyn's post from over the other side of the world at Waterlily Cards. Robyn took pity on a little gerbera on a discounted trolley and it's now repaying her with a beautiful bloom....how lovely to be that caring eh? Thanks for making me smile Robyn.
My smiles concern my family again this week. I have a couple of tales to share with you and a few pics. As the saying goes....'out of the mouths of babes'.....
- As most of you will remember my little granddaughter Lulu [Louise] has just started school. She's not 5 til next April but has already shown them her character in that she has been chosen to be the school council representative for the reception year children. She went to her first school council meeting last week and when her mummy asked if things had gone ok she said it had. Her Mummy asked what had been said at the meeting [showing interest as any good mummy would ] and the reply came back....'I'm not allowed to tell you. It is confidential you know!'.....yes she really is only 4!! She never fails to amaze us and always makes us chuckle :-)
- I look after the twins a couple of days every week and we have such wonderful conversations now. Monday morning Lexi was chatting while eating her breakfast and the conversation went like this....
Me...Oh did you darling and what colour was it?
Lexi...It was green and um.....black
Me...and was it going creep creep like this....my finger pretending to be a caterpillar crawling on the breakfast table.
Lexi...Oh no Nanny....it was dead!!
She does make me giggle at times!!
And a few of snaps that made me smile this week...
We celebrated the twins third birthday this week and here they are putting a lot of effort into blowing the candles out on their birthday cake ...I hope all their wishes come true :-)
Here they are chilling out the day after their birthday with their new children's ipads....they are so IT wise at such a young age these days and really love to show you what they can do with them. :-)
When I went to look after them on Tuesday this week I took with me their Uncle Mark's K'Nex construction set. Mark used to really love creating with it when he was young and it has been stored safely for use by the next generation since :-)
I spent a little while showing them how the pieces clicked together and then let their imaginations do the rest....Oh what a fab hour was spent playing with it.
Just look at the concentration!
I asked what she was making and she told me this was her flower garden....of course!
Happy happy times....I do get tired but I wouldn't miss this precious time for all the world.
So folks there are a few things that have made me smile this week....how about you?
Please leave me a little hello comment to say you've called by and if you have a smile or two of your own why not share them by linking them below and make the world a happier place to be.
