Rocking my week!

First, catching this scheduled post, and finishing it, before it uploaded haha!
Don't you just LUUUUURVE the last week of school??? No idea what day it is most of the time, and then Chunky Monkey wants "to make his own cards" for 3 teachers with 24 hours notice!!!
He did a fabulous job colouring the images, but I didn't get chance to take pics.
Monday started well, with Darcy choosing the word COMMUNITY....
Years ago we lived near a little village in derbyshire called Great Longstone, and the people there welcomed us from day one, treating us like family, and letting us be part of their wonderfully friendly community...... We will be forever grateful to them for all the love they still share with us :D
The photo is me and some of the other mums "absailing" to raise charity money :D
The next thing I really enjoyed this week was collecting little pressies to send to a friend in america. She sounded sad at the beginning of the week, and the thought of making her smile powered my week.(Yes, I am russhing and forgot to rotate the piiy :S)
I wrapped all the bits in girlie pink papers, which I am sure she will find a use for :D
Had a fantastic time going to the Craft Fair at Doncaster, where I bought these scrummy popperswhich are soooo much more interesting than the tacky plastic buttons that were already on my rainbow jacket :)
They say scrummy things like " forever friends" and" Funny face"

Those are the things Rocking my world this week...what's rocking yours??

  4. Hi Gina, well done for getting those teacher cards done - don't you love it when kids land you with stuff like that (especially when you asked them weeks ago if they'd like to do something like that, and then having said no for ages decide yes at the last minute, grrrr!).
    'Community' is lovely - it must must have been hard moving away from there.
    Those poppers are gorgeous, I love the Life's Journey range.
    What a sweet friend you are to send some smiles and a hug over to America. That will definitely make her day.

    Have a great weekend,

    xx
