Friday's Fave Five 1/7/16

It's Friday Saturday so it's belatedly time to join in with Suzanne's Friday's Fave Five.  
It's a place to come on Fridays and think back over your week and just post about 5 favourite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favourite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, great internet finds, etc., etc.

Well I'm a day late again this week due to a trip to Nottingham yesterday but that leads me in nicely to 5 things I'm thankful for this week:

1)  The ability to drive and having a car.  Of course we could get to Nottingham on the train.  It's not a million miles away but it wouldn't have given us the flexibility that was needed yesterday.

2)  Quick decisions.  We went to Nottingham to change hubby's suit for our son's upcoming wedding.  Our son had gone and chosen suits for himself, best man, and fathers of the bride and groom in an outlet retail park near to where he lives in Nottingham.  We had provided the measurements for hubby but, you've guessed it, the suit didn't fit too well.  So yesterday we went up to see about getting it changed.  That was successfully done.  But then I noticed one of the stores was a brand that I've worn before, particularly for special events, like weddings!  I hadn't done much looking around for my wedding outfit yet but I went into the store.  Selected 3 dresses to try on, tried on 2 of them and bought 1.  Quickest decision I think I've ever made for a wedding outfit but it just felt right.  You'll have to wait until August for pics though and I still need to sort out accessories.

3)  Technology.  I've never wanted to go to Glastonbury.  The thought of all the crowds and mud etc horrifies me but the chance to watch some of the performers live is tempting but since the advance of technology I can watch them in the comfort of my own home.
Here is Adele singing Someone like you for example.

4)  A hubby who likes cooking.  Had some lovely homemade soup this week.

5)  Birthday celebrations.  Have to mention these.  All very low key last Sunday but all the immediate family were here and hubby cooked a lovely roast dinner.  One of my best friends also dropped in on the Saturday so we had a good time catching up.

It was a good week when I stop to think about it.  Hope yours was too.


  1. Happy Birthdays, smiles. I think traveling by train would be fun--instead of driving...we went once from Tuscaloosa, Alabama to Birmingham, Alabama on was quite enjoyable. Glad you got the suit worked out. Have a joyful weekend, friend.

  2. My son got married a month ago - Decisions, decisions, and so much to do!! Hope everything goes well.

  3. Oh #4 sounds so nice. My hubby might be able to boil eggs, but I'm not even sure about that. Glad you had such a good week!

  4. A husband that cooks and finding a dress for the wedding -- both of those are big items in my book!

  5. Hi Wendy, How nice that you were able to take care of your husband's suit and find an outfit for yourself for the wedding. Hope all goes well at your son's wedding. I also have a hubby that cooks and I really appreciate it. Our son's are great cooks, too. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. How neat to be able to get both your and your husband's wedding clothes taken care of at the same time. I appreciate having a car, too, and being able to drive it. Public transportation just doesn't get everywhere every time needed. Love low-key birthday celebrations.

  7. Wow, I'm impressed with how quick you found yourself a dress. What a relief it must have been to have the suit taken care of quite easily too! Having a car is definitely a blessing.
