Rocking Your World Friday

Baa baa lost sheep looking to return to the fold. Friday seemed an excellent day to get back in the swing of things especially when my crafting mojo is taking a while to rev up again. So here we go:

I am very grateful first off to have survived May and June. Earning the majority of our yearly income in 2 months is never going o be an easy task. I always pay for it o am week or 2 but no permanent harm done and mission accomplished.I am grateful for all my bloggy friends who forgive my absence and are still willing to chat and let me back in when I do re-emerge.

I am grateful for the friends who help pick me up when I am left alone with Timothy while my dh travels far and wide to conferences and for job interviews. Proud and grateful of my dear son who starts school in September (probably) for making me laugh, challenging me everyday and for waking me up at 5:30 with Where's daddy is he not back yet.......

Grateful and excited by the new fabric called Fox hollow by monoluna which is getting my crafting mojo to peek out from wherever it is hiding.

Proud of my tutee who I home schooled for just over 2 years in science and maths who really knuckled down in the last 2 months and now we wait nervously for August and to see if she has the grades for her college course.

Very thankful for the school holidays that mean I can take a few weeks break from tutoring.

Grateful for brilliant athletes. I didn't watch the end of the Andy Murray match because Timothy was asking me to read him stories and getting annoyed when I got distracted by the tennis then I would get cross so I took the tennis out of the equation. I can't imagine being one of the best in the world the at anything, I hope he does win Wimbledon one day I am sure he can.

Grateful for the seaside. I will go and visit some, somewhere, before this excuse of a summer is over.

I think that will do a wide and varied list me thinks........Happy Friday :)

Hi there, sounds like some lovely positives.

Hope you get to the seaside before we get completely washed away by our wonderful British summer LOL - boy has it been wet but I suppose that is a positive as the hosepipe bans have now been withdrawn.

Have a super weekend.

Oh it's so lovely to see you back, I realised you would be up to your eyes in it over this crazily busy period but hoped you'd come back when things calmed.

Your week sounds great, I hope the mojo returns, I suggest just getting out some supplies and playing - doesn't matter if you're unhappy with the results it might get the crafting positives flowing again!

hope your tutee sees the rewards for her hard work!

The tennis match was amazing and quite humbling to see how affected Andy had been by fan support! Hoping he wins it one day too!

Also wouldn't mind a seaside day -but can we have some blue skies first please.

Hope you have a beautiful and blessed week ahead

Much love
