This week's smiles.....week 142

So here we are at another Happy Friday's post.  Thanks to all who joined in last week.  I am featuring Zoe's post from last week.  She filled in a questionnaire....it made me smile and it was really lovely to learn a little more about her.  I promised her that I would have a go too [why don't a few of you join in the fun?....It's always lovely to learn a little about our blogging friends].
So here I go.....
TIME:  11.10 am [yes, I am writing this post on Thursday morning and will schedule it automatically].
LOCATION:  I'm sat on the laptop in the sitting room....it's one room I can keep warm in and is fairly dust and noise free :-)
FEELING:  Blessed with all the wonderful things in my life....but just a little worn out with all the mess, dust, noise and chaos of the building work that's going on here.
LOVING:  My wonderful family and watching my new home taking shape.
READING:  Nothing at the mo....If I started a new book at the mo I'd be asleep before completing page one :-)
DRINKING:  Just coffee for me....tea makes me sick and I rarely drink alcohol because of my diabetes.
ANTICIPATING:  The end of all the building work....It will be a while yet but I do feel we can see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel now  :-)
LISTENING TO:  Radio 2
WATCHING:  The birds feed just outside my window  :-)
PLANNING:  New kitchen and bathroom plus floor coverings.....this week  :-)
LOOKING FORWARD TO:  No more dust  :-)
CREATING:  A huge list of things to make and do when I can get into my sewing room....I am so thankful for Pinterest  :-)
NEED TO FINISH:  Sorting the fabrics and emptying the many boxes of stored stash in my sewing room.
WISHING:  For sunny days and lots of fun times ahead in our new home
MAIN GOAL THIS WEEK:  Keep smiling through the dust cloud  :-) 

That's the list and here's a few pics that have made me smile this week...


Our new front door and window......still need to take the old porch down and block up the old front door.  :-)



It always makes me smile to see my hubby and son working together on any project....especially when it's putting the first fix electrics into our new kitchen before the builders board and plaster it out.  I'm such a proud mummy.  :-)
Thanks Mark for all your willing help....it's his birthday on Sunday.....my baby will be 28  :-)



Beautiful skies at silly o'clock when I'm on Nanny Annie duty with the twins.  And speaking of twins.....



......here they are with the latest family member who has also been making me smile this week.

Meet Monty the kitten....isn't he cute?

So there you go folks.  I have so much making me smile this week....and today is my birthday so lift a glass with me today please and link up your smiles below.
Have a great week.
Hugs,
Annie x

Glad things are taking shape. Your front door looks very smart. Happy Birthday to Mark on Sunday. How lucky you are having such a lovely family. The photo of the twins and Monty is lovely. Have fun on Grannie duties. Not able to join in today sadly but I'll be back next week. Have a great week. Barbxx

Happy Birthday! (You kept that quiet until the last line!)
Yes, that's a fun questionnaire. I'll try to do one next week.
Monty the kitten is very cute, as are the twins of course. Gosh haven't they grown!
The building work is coming on, isn't it. Not long now!
Have a smiley week,
Lisca

A big happy birthday hug Annie, hope you have a wonderful day, get spoilt - or really you are getting totally spoilt with all that renovation and new stuff and hope it's not too long till it's finished. Great that hubby and son can do some of the work, no doubt you'll spoil Mark for his birthday. Cute pic of the twins with their new kitty. Enjoy your day and the weekend Cheers Robyn

Well my overdoing the linky will keep everyone amused. Don't know how I managed that Annie, sorry.
Can't believe how grannies sweethearts are growing so quickly.
Thanks for the smiles. Have a lovely weekend

Some good goals to aim for Annie. The work is coming on a treat but I am sure you will happy when it is all finished. It's nice that your son is able to lend his dad a hand too. Little Monty is very cute. I bet he will be getting plenty of love from the twinnies. Kate x

I know I haven't been around for awhile, but I just HAD to stop by and get a smile or two this weekend. I hurt my shoulder carrying buckets of water to my neighbor's basement when I helped her with it, so there hasn't been much to smile about here. Even typing is a chore, therefore I haven't been able to join challenges this month.

Looks like you are making SOME progress on your sewing room, and I know you will be so happy when it's all said and DONE. Happy weekend, dear.

Didn't join in this week as I went to Malvern for the Autumn quilt show and had a fabulous but tiring day.
Happy Birthday Annie and I wish you all the good things you deserve. I am sure your lovely family will make sure it's a perfect day for you.
Health and happiness, love and joy from me to you!
