Rocking my World

Well its been a strange week, having only worked 3 and a half days... I'm so grateful for the weekend break I had last week, its made me more able to deal with things as they come along. I can just take a deep breath & take it on the chin. So thankyou Mum & Dad for having the girls for the weekend, I love you both lots.

I'm grateful for the inspiration given at the retreat last weekend from the talented DT at Sarah's Cards, its kick-started my mojo & I just can't stop scrapping at the moment & what's more, I'm loving what I'm creating.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to make new friends, I met some of the loveliest and kindest people last weekend, not to mention some of the funniest. Only a true scrapbooker would grab their camera to take a photo of a bowl of tartare sauce....

Making pancakes with the children was a highlight ; they even managed to toss them (with a little help)... they were delicious too!

Its wonderful that it finally feels like Spring is on its way - Mads & Tigs wore their summer dresses to school today (albeit with vests underneath!) and were happy to do so :)

Finally I'm just grateful for everything that I have, life isn't always easy but having had a weekend away from the girls & the house last week, when I came back, I really appreciated all that I have.... I feel very, very blessed.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone

  1. Oh Claire a beautiful Rocking Your World list - you sound like you so needed that weekend retreat and it sounds as though it's done you the world of good! Making time for you is just so important particularly when juggling family and work life! Hurray for Mum and Dad for helping out - I hope you have a beautiful and blessed weekend!


  2. Hi Claire, good to have you back Rocking today! How wonderful to get away from a retreat - we all need a break sometimes, to recharge our batteries and return ready for life again. Sounds like you had a great time. Good old Mum and Dad!

    Pancakes, yum. Summer dresses, cute. The battle of the tartare sauce, funny!

    Have a great weekend,


  3. So glad to hear you are in a happy place right now Claire :) xxx
