Hi I like Annie's weekly Friday posts about things to smile about. Sometimes we do get hung up on the negatives and it is good to remember the positives there may been. As I posted previously last weekend I was away with three friends - we went to Chester and then on Sunday to Tatton Flower Show. Although Sunday was awful weatherwise there was a lot of laughter.
On Tuesday I went out for early tea/ late lunch with three friends and they came home with me and we were joined by another lovely lady for a craft workshop. The rest of my week has been having a massive tidy up, declutter and cleaning. I don't enjoy cleaning but I did smile when it was done !!! :-)
It was also good to see my granddaughters and their mummy and daddy as we had been away and then they were away and we'd not seen each other for two weeks- usually it's at least once a week , often more :-)
Also good to hear that our eldest son and family had safely arrived in Spain and then onto France.
Love this photo of them.

 Here is Sam showing me his new rucksack ! My mum had asked me to get him something for his birthday from her.

This was in airport lounge. Sam asked his mum to send this photo and tell me he'd had all these Cokes! I hasten to add he hadn't! :-) Just trying to trick grandma! 

I am off to link up with Annie here
What has caused you to smile this week? Come and join in. :-)

  10. I totally agree with you about looking on the bright side and not giving "air-time" to the negative. I'm glad you're having such a good summer! We got home last night and I'm *sooOOOooo* happy to be home. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
