Happy #Wensfriesday

It has been a while since I’ve posted on my Wensfriesday post, but I just had to share my happiness and mid-week special.

I haven’t had a chance to enjoy a sweetie break – we did that the other night whilst watching a Star Wars marathon!  Instead, my treat today was tackling a job I’ve been avoiding for good reason…the patio!  The pallets have done their time and it was time to replace or remove them.  Today was the day of reckoning. 

   Now I’m no wimp, but the size of spiders jumping out from cracks and crevices had me screaming and doing crazy dances in the garden. I was not the only one! The children screeched when one tried to run up my shoe! Eurgh! I’m still getting the shivers now.After moving over 36 slabs, 10 pallets and supporting bricks, the majority of the area has been cleared and a new set of steps laid out.  Tomorrow I will finish the hellish corner that’s left and lay out the rest of the slabs over the cleared area.   

 My treat at the end of a hard day’s work was a lovely cup of Jasmine tea.  I guess I will have to celebrate a proper Wensfriesday tomorrow.

Have you tackled any major jobs today that have been bugging you for a while?  What was your mid-week treat?

Happy #Wensfriesday!

The sun is shining, birds are singing and it promises to be a warm, summery day! Continue reading

Frosty Wensfriesday


Only two weeks left to Christmas! Are your ready? Has the crazy shopping stopped in your home or are you still frantically scampering around for the perfect presents for loved ones?

I’m still motoring through and will do the last minute bits next week. I’m a last minute kinda girl, with time chasing me!

A special Happy Wensfriesday goes out to my Hubble today. He is celebrating his second 21st! He is lucky enough to be attending my youngest son’s nativity tonight and I shall be helping out behind the scenes – a job I thoroughly enjoy. I get to see future actors/artists going through the motions and excitement as it gets closer to the curtain call. Once the play starts and all manner of things go wrong, our little troopers keep the performance going and sing like angels. It brings home the blessings we have around us and the perseverance of small people against dodgy microphones and stuttering projected backgrounds. I’m one of those crazy mums that sing along to the music (softly enough not to embarrass my children!) and my cheeks hurt from smiling throughout. Yup, I’m a sucker for any stage performance!

What do you love about the build up to Christmas? Or what do you hate?

Right…I have to get back to scoffing my Ferrero Rocher chocolates so I will bid you farewell for now.

Sweetie Time 😄
