Friday's Fave Five - 20/4/18

Friday is time to look back on the week and find five things to be grateful for.  Drop in to Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for full details and other participants.

Here are mine:

1)  Here 2 weeks running!  I'm also up to date with the A-Z challenge although the final week could get a bit tricky.  I miss it when I don't get around to blogging but sometimes other things get in the way.

2)  Wonderful supportive comments on my posts.  It's so nice to get feedback although sometimes I do feel a bit guilty if I've not managed to get around to responding to everyone.  It's just nice to know you're not posting into a vacuum and your posts aren't just disappearing into the ethernet.  Apologies if I didn't get to you all last week.  

3)  Summer weather.  Yep we've been moaning for weeks about the absence of spring and then we get several days of hot weather.  I even dug out my sandals! 

4)  Coffee with friends - met up with a couple of friends today and we were able to sit in the outdoor seating area of the cafe.  It was lovely.

5)  Successful shopping trip - I went to Hobbycraft to get some wool for the second baby blanket I need to make plus some bits and pieces for the baby shower next week.  It's getting exciting around here!

Hope you are enjoying spring weather and have a lovely weekend.


  1. Nothing like babies to ratchet up the excitement level! I love it!

    It seems that sandals, sunshine and coffee are a theme for FFF this week. Surely signs that spring is here to stay.

  2. sandals are definitely not the theme yet here in Eastern New York State!! I was supposed to hike tomorrow about 2 hours north west of my home and there is still 22 inches of snow on the ground up there!! So....i'll be doing some walking on a local trail here in the cap region.

    YAY for coffee with friends and shopping trips!
    enjoy the weekend.

  3. Exciting, the baby shower! Glad you are finally getting some warmer weather. For us we are still not getting anything cooler, than 35, which is way too hot at this time of year. Coffee with friends is the best! I had the oppertunity to do that this week too.

  4. Hurray for the warmer weather! A blog/face-to-face friend in England posted photos of flowering trees. It looks like spring really has come to UK.
    A trip to the yarn section is always a good thing. Do post photos of the finished blanket!

  5. Lovely items for your FFF this week. Warm weather, coffee, babies, sandals. What could be better?

  6. I can relate to feeling bad about not getting around to visit everyone with A to Z. I've had a hard time keeping up.

  7. Yay for warm weather! It has been back and forth here - some warm days, some cold, but not summery yet! I love this time before the hot weather sets in. I agree about blog feedback - so encouraging. Meeting with friend and successful shopping trips are big pluses!
