This week's smiles....week 143

Here we are at yet another Friday's gathering up of as many smiles as we can for the week.  It's not been the easiest of weeks for us but Friday is the day when I like to focus on the happy times and to see how many things has made us smile for the week....I hope you can all find something that has made you smile too and will link it up at the bottom using Mr Linky.

There were many of you joining in the fun last week and for that I thank you all for helping to make the world a happier place to be.  I am featuring that very talented, much older sister of mine this week for the gorgeous monster suit that she made for her little grandson Ben out of one of his mummy's dresses.  Recycling at it's best eh? and doesn't he just look so cute in it?.....he's not feeling at his best at the mo so I am sending him lots of get well soon wishes too.  Thanks for sharing the pics Jo.

My biggest smile this week was at 3 o'clock yesterday when our builders finished for the day.....but the truth is that the only job they have to do now is to fit our new kitchen french doors and glass side panels.  These are due to arrive today and the builders plan to come back at the end of next week to fit them.  Our plumbers plan to come today to put our new radiators in the rooms and when finished we should have heating and then this means the rest is down to us.....just a little matter of installing a bathroom and a kitchen [when we get it] and decorating through the new part before starting on the old part..............  :-) :-) :-) :-)

My smiley photos this week revolve around my grandchildren and the Autumn/Halloween fun they have been having during their half term holidays...

They've gathered leaves, made dens in the woods, been to a pumpkin farm to choose their pumpkins and have carved them, they have made scary buns, done some paper crafting and even made their own witches brews.....oh to be a child again eh?

Little Lulu is proudly showing off her new football kit ready for the new club she is joining after school.
                            :-) :-) :-)

For those wondering how the twin's new little friend, Monty is settling in, here he is sitting on the laptop to make sure he gets you can see he one very happy little kitten and is getting lots of spoiling.

That's about it from me for today so please leave me a little comment to let me know you've called in and link up your smiles below.

Happy Friday!
Great that the builders have practically finished! Now the work begins! But it is another milestone. 'Poco a poco' as they say here (little by little).
Lovel photos of your GKs and their Halloween fun, I particularly like little Lulu in her football kit. She looks so proud.
Your (their)Monty looks a lot like our kitten, called Precious (we have not renamed him since we knew he is a male). Cats don't listen whatever you call them....
Have a great week,
Thanks for visiting earlier,

Glad to hear the builders work is almost done. It won't be too long now. What lovely piccies of your little grand children. They are such a happy bunch and loots as if there was lot of Halloween fun. Lulu looks very smart and proud in her new footie strip. I wish there had been girls' football when I was young. Monty looks as if he's a bright little boy. Knowing where to sit to get attention. That photo i really so cute. Have a lovely weekend Annie. Barbxx

What a lovely happy page Annie. The munchkins are gorgeous and so is monty.
I'm having a chuckle at little Lulu's legs, mine were just like that when I was little.
Have a nice weekend.

How fab. The works have been so much anticipated, am so glad that you're so happy with it all. Yep, would love to make a witches brew and take advantage of these bright autumn days! Actually, I might!

Hi Annie, the photos of the kids are lovely. Your kitty is cute too. I have been wondering for a while why we so many cats sit on computer monitors Lol! they are not stupid as they obviously think these things get too much attention so they'll sit on them so you are forced to give them attention too.
Happy Friday, Angela x

Hi Annie. Very cool Halloween pics. It looks like the new member of the family is settling in well and demanding attention that she wants.
I scheduled this post to go live early in the morning and for whatever reason it didn't. Better late than never.

Lots of happy faces in your photos this week Annie. I don't do Halloween but I can see the children enjoyed their preparations. Autumn is such a lovely time of year.
My cats used to like sitting on my laptop. I think it is just the right warmth for them.
I hope the doors arrived on time and get safely installed.

Hello Annie, apologies for not making it here until now ... it's been a busy weekend. When is it ever anything else :) Your happy photos are a treat ... see what I did there :) Who wouldn't want to be a child again when it is as much fun as your grandchildren find it. And Lulu's footie strip is fantastic - hope she enjoys her football practice too. Monty is adorable, and has clearly learned just how to be the centre of attention :) Have a fab week. Elizabeth xx
