This week's smiles....week 161

It was another week with lots of you joining in the fun by sharing your smiles and for that I thank you all.  There are some weeks that we need smiles more than others and this week has been one of those weeks for me so please keep up the good work girls....It really does make the world seem a better place when you have lots to smile about.

I am featuring Angela's post from last week because it had been taken over by BP mini me and really made me chuckle.....thanks BP.  Just sometimes we all need a little 'person' in our lives that make us smile don't we?   You really did the job BP.....I really hope Angela is having a fun week skiing and comes home safely and in one piece to you BP.

My week has been full of challenges but there is always plenty to make me smile so I'm sharing a couple of pics with you...

I have had flowers from one of my friends [to cheer me up when Rocky had to be put to sleep] and for Mother's Day had tulips from my daughter Shell, coloured flowers from Sam and Lexi, a basket of flowers and plants from my daughter Amy and a beautiful orchid from my son Mark.....aren't they simply gorgeous?  

The other pic I'm sharing is of the lovely new window my clever hubby fitted last week and the new light airy hall we now have because he then took down the old brick porch that was the other side [you can still see the concrete pad that it sat on through the window].

Yesterday we had a builder here to fill in the gaps where the bricks were missing and the concrete pad has now been broken up so we can soon have the drive resurfaced on the front of the bungalow.  :-) :-) :-)

So much to smile about eh?  I think so. :-)

Now please leave me a little message to say you've called by and link up your smiles below.  Hope you have a great week.

Wow, that new window is going to give you a ton of light. It will certainly be good for all those wonderful plants you received. It's ironic that Mother's Day is in May here in the states, so I was surprised when I read last week it was going to be last Sunday. Looks like you were well thought of, though.

Hope this week has been a bit easier for you, and you can smile a bit more. Have a great Friday and weekend, dear.

Hi Annie, I'm pleased you enjoyed my post as I am still here though it may be the last time for a while as Angie and Des will be back tomorrow and we will have to keep our heads down but no worry I will be back. Loving your gorgeous flowers and hope you have a good weekend. Your small and loving friend, BP Mini Me and mates xXx

Keep smiling!! xxx

I had to laugh at your comment, Annie. I'm 4'11" and that limb is at least 16' tall (Good zoom lens on my camera). There's no way I'll ever get it down. It will stay there till it disintegrates, because even my tallest ladder couldn't reach it and my fear of height would take over at about the second rung, anyway.

Happy to know you can still manage a cheery smile but I am sure it has been helped by your lovely family and all those beautiful flowers.
What a transformation the window must have made. Well done to DH, he's a star and I wish he'd come to do my jobs too!!!
Have a good weekend and keep smiling, you certainly help me to smile.
love Jo x

Morning Annie, Your flowers are beautiful. Lots of love there from your friends and family.

I have just posted off a card to friends who has just lost their little dog. I think Rocky and Jasmine might be playing together over the Rainbow Bridge.

Your new window looks great. Your hubby gives you a lovely new window and mine gives me .... hehe! Hugs, Barbxx

Wow! That is a window and a half! Fantastic! That will give you so much more light. Well done your hubby.
The flowers are gorgeous. How thoughtful of your friend to send you flowers.
Have a lovely week,

Wonderful indeed Annie, so pleased for you with all your smiles, how clever is DH and your flower givers of all ages???
Very precious indeed.
Not playing just popping in to say hi, no time to blog. Busy summer days here still.
Hugs and prayers, Shaz in Oz.x

Hi Annie, love your flowers - your house must look like a florists at the moment :) I like your new, brighter, lighter hall too. Hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Annie, such gorgeous flowers and coloured ones from the gk too...all bring a huge smile to my face for you. That is one excellent window and so much light into the hall - wonderful. So sorry to hear about Rockie so here's a big hug from me, cheers and hope you have an enjoyable week Robyn

Beautiful flowers Annie. I hope they last for a nice long time for you.
The new window is wonderful. I love as much light pouring in as possible, so the bigger the window, the better I like it.
It will be good to have a new drive surface too. It will finish it all off nicely.
I am sure you are still missing your little furry friend, but how kind of your friend to send flowers to lift your spirits.
Hugs Kate x
