Rocking Your World Friday

Hey all.. well here is my Rocking Your World Friday post.

I can't compete with Virginias naked chef (!) but I've just read Suzy and Sues blog and I am happy to report that my week went like this.

Needless to say it's been very, very hot.. so last weekend I stayed very close to home and stayed in my cottage with it's 400 year old, 2' thick walls.... where it was a very civilised temperature. I dragged some of my craft stuff down from my SCORCHIO craft room (it's south facing and has the only big window in the house) and created this LO of my youngest son and his, very lovely, GF.

The rest of the week was spent in a greenhouse (aka office) where we have glass on three sides and it was sweltering.. I was very grateful for my fan and the girls I work with who let me have their fans when I am having my own 'personal summer'

I also had a 3 hour appraisal on Tuesday and I'm glad to say it went very well! Phew.. I even got a small pay rise! Hurrah!

I got stuck in a traffic jam on Weds for 2 and a half hours and I have never been so grateful for air conditioning! In the evening things improved though and I went to a local crop and made this LO for this weeks UKS challenge. It's called.. Wanna Know What Love Is? and is a homage to my wonderful husband of 33 years.. for whom I am also grateful.

Then last night.. knowing I had a three day weekend ahead of me- I decided to download 928 photos of DS1s wedding in June. I am grateful that one of the large photo printing services have a special deal until tomorrow of 1/2 price large prints! Needless to say I have over 200 on their way to me.. and I am sure many of them will be seen on here in the not too distant future. 

I have also spent much of the day hiding in my cool lounge with the laptop sorting and organising two albums from the same large printing company (as they are also on offer) as I plan on buying an extra one for my Mum too... I am so grateful for the timing of that offer! and just because I can.. here are two of those said photos of my DS and my new DIL.. a LO coming soon to a blog near you. lol

Thanks for looking!
