December 5

I like Fridays... the end of the week and the promise of time spent with the family at the weekend, chilling out, eating pizza and watching trashy tv. My favourite Saturday programme is Merlin. VERY loosely based on Authurian legend. I always make time to sit down and watch it with the girls. They like sharing the experience with me. We have a giggle as King Uther has banned the practice of magic. One of our cats is called Magic so the girls think this is great fun and say.. 'Magic not allowed'!

This weekend is the School Christmas Fair. I like to help out but this year we are just going to enjoy attending it and support it in that way. They have gone to school in Mufti (no school uniform) today with a gift of small goodies for the fair in return for this treat. It should be fun.. wonder how i'll do on the bottle tombola this year. ... maybe a bottle of black tower ? .. my friend still hasn't drunk hers from last year! I luckily got a large bottle of good lager which was finished very quickly by my man.



Today I want to share this photo with you of my wee family who mean the world to me. I have it pinned to my pin board and a glimpse of it as i walk by always makes me feel so blessed. This was taken on Fathers day earlier this year on a lovely river walk. It was one of those days that are not planned but gently unfold and end up being perfect. One to remember when I am away from them.

Have a lovely weekend with your friends, family and loved ones... they are what life is all about.x

I had assumed that the man modelling the back pack in the book was your husband, so find it strangely shocking that he has suddenly morphed into someone quite other. They all look scrumptious - what a lovely photo to have on your pinboard...and you're right, for a perfect photo it's not enough that they all just look lovely, it also needs to have all the wonderful memories of a perfect day to go with it.

Wishing you a lovely weekend and all the fun of the fair (he he...I'm so ridiculously pleased that that expression is so fitting for you!). (will reply to email in the very near future!) x

What a lovely photograph. I agree, the best days are often the unplanned ones where everything just falls into place.
Have a lovely weekend.

Hello lovely Ginny. Hope your weekend was everything it should have been. I do agree with Forence about the memories behind the photos. I have various ones of my little lovelies (and the not so little lovelies) in my sewing room too and the make me smile when sometimes it's all getting a bit much. How's the Christmas prep coming on? I am now officially in panic mode thanks to Lucy informing me there are only two weeks of scholl left...ARGH!!!!
Your lovely family look so gorgeous and look like they were having such fun. Have a great week xxx

Don't say Ginny's husband is handsome - you'll make life unbearable for her! Okay, Okay, Mr.Ginny - you're not bad looking I concede, but I prefer the photo of you bobbing for apples!
