Sunny Smile

Second Post Friday: For The further adventures of Lady Ophelia click HERE

Face no 17(WIP) for 29 Faces in February. Needed a bit of sunshine :D, guache and coloured pencil.

This is the day that I try to join in with Rocking My World Friday, to give thanks for the blessings in my week:
I am thankful that we have had a lovely relaxing half term break, with lots of happy visitors.

I am thankful that, although he still hasn't got the job he wants, hubby is surrounded by professional friends who have confidence that he will, and are giving him lots of emotional support.

I am grateful that we are all in good health, and able to take time to help others that need us.

I am so happy that my grown-up son still feels the need to come home regularly(even if it is just to get his washing done).

And I am soooo excited to be getting together with some of my blogland friends to eat, shop and squeal on saturday :D

And I am most grateful to Virginia, who keeps reminding us that there is always something to be thankful for, even in the crappiest weeks :D XXX



  1. I love this painting ... Bee and sunflower, as a fable. Wonderful.

  2. Eating shopping and squealing with bloggy friends sounds fun - enjoy!

    Great Rocking list - good health really is so important and it's worth not taking for granted. Lovely sounding week with happy visitors - a perfect half term :o)

    Wishing you a happy weekend,

    1. Hi Virginia, I've met Donna before, she is the one who did my humongous portrait for me, and I talk to Darcy online regularly. We had a wonderful day shopping and eating and chattering, thanks. And I also met Clare aka "paint in my hair", she was lovely too :D
