This week's smiles...week 382

I'm curious to see what my Friday post will look like now as they appear to have changed things again on blogger.  I struggled to find where to write a new post to start I've found it but whether it's going to allow me to add photos and Mr Linky at the bottom may be a different matter but I'm going to try.

My smiles this week [up til now!] have been plentiful so I will try to share a few with you...

Lexi has started ballet lessons privately at home with her dance teacher...just look at these lovely poses from her. 😍😍😍

Last weekend Shell, Brent and twins had a few days down in Cornwall with family and they sent me these photos to share what a lovely time they were having down there.  😍😍😍

While Steve was at his football session Phoebe and Lulu wen't shopping with their mum and they wanted me to see they were wearing the masks I made them...I love that you can still see they are smiling by looking at their eyes. 😍😍😍

Amy sen't me these pics with the message...'Not a bad office eh?'  She does the office work /artwork for their banner printing business so had taken her laptop to their local park so the children could play in the sunshine while she worked....nothing stops her 😍😍😍

And for those that have been missing our garden pics here's a few of the latest....including our first tomato ripening, our peas [nearly ready to pick] and one of my orchids that is blooming it's little heart out at the mo.  I really do think nature is doing it's best to compensate for the difficult times we are going through at the mo.

I hope you have enjoyed my show and tell for this week.  I'm now going to try to add Mr Linky for you all to link up to but if I fail please just add your link in the comments....we wont let blogger beat us!!

It appears you have conquered blogger. I'll continue to use Legacy as long as possible, though. Too many bugs in the program for me.

Looks like Shell and Amy sent you some great photos of the kids and families this week. Great photos of everyone and lovely mosaics of the photos, too.

Oh your veggies and beautiful flowers, too. You truly have a green thumb when it comes to growing beautiful flowers and tasty looking veggies. Hope you have a super weekend, too, Annie.

I use Blog Touch Annie but I've noticed the link to blogger has changed. Well done on conquering the new set up.
Your lovely pics this week are heartwarming.
You’ll cringe when you see mine haha
Stay well and safe. We have been told today that we are not allowed to go in each other’s houses or gardens again now.

Huge congrats're better man than I Gunga-Din, or so said Rudyard Kipling 😃 i did mine in Legacy like Elizabeth. I'd tried the new one but didn't work on mobile.
Unless they fixed it, I'll hardly do any blogging. I do all mine on my phone. My computer is too old to blog with..
Ho hum have till 24th Aug so may sometime work it.. or not.
Love your smiles... esp Lexi's ballet poses very good. Things are starting to blow up with COVID in Vic. Down south. Not gere but real concern.
Your other pickies are lovely. Esp the garden glories of God's handiwork. Beautiful.
Thanks so much for your persistence and for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X

Pleased to see everyone doing well. The eyes say it all and maybe we will all have to get used to being more expressive. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Angela xXx

Sorry for lack of reply on Wednesday-we had gone to the seaside for the day. The photos of the children enjoying themselves make the world seem normal for school holiday even though it’s still a scary place. Garden looking lovely too. Enjoy those delicious tomatoes very soon.

I am a bit late commenting today. I have had a little distraction that I have needed to keep an eye on.He is cat-napping right now.
Lexi is doing well with her dancing and looks every bit the little ballerina. She will gain excellent posture for later years doing that. My grand-daughter was the same.
Nice to see you had some sunny days so the children could enjoy the work. Well done Amy for managing to work and watch them.
Your garden is so colourful and the orchid is amazing. Kate x

Having been off Blogger for a couple of years, I switched straight away and it was easier to get used to the new version that way. The challenge is going to be in updating my blog in design terms...

Pretty masks you made for the children - my efforts have been far more gothic! (must get Miss B to send some selfies)

Have a good weekend!
