The Big Trip

What's Ricking Your World Friday?

Happy Friday afternoon bloggers and Rockettes alike!!!

First things first - as I type my precious boy has arrived home for the weekend so all will be well and normal. Junk food, loud music, no computers free - just like any other household with a 12 year old and a 14 year old in residence. So similar but so different. As is the case every other Friday, that is my BIG grateful!

I am so glad to realise that this time next week I will be winding down at work for two weeks off - bliss. I haven't done much crafting this week but was delighted with the response I got from the recipient of the engagement book I featured in last week's WRYF post. Also, thank you for all your kind comments.

Following hot on the heels of last week's WRYF, came the post about my current love and obsession - the Twilight Saga. In an effort to avoid sounding totally demented and obsessive, suffice it to say that I am most definitely Team Edward and no amount of written word or celluloid images have managed to sway me from this decision. I am just so glad that there are other like-minded people, including my Facebook and online scrapping buddy Susie.

Another big positive today - Payday - thank goodness. Have already ordered myself a set of much coveted Tim Holtz stamps from Cuddly Buddly and am hoping they arrive very soon. The stamps in question are........

I've been after these stamps for a while and managed to pick them up with a few pounds of the usual price so I am well pleased!

Right, need to go now so will wish you all a happy Friday and an even more fabulous weekend, whatever it brings you, planned or otherwise, and will catch up with you soon.



  1. I am so thankful its pay day too, not so sure my hubby will be when he checks the paypal account eeeek!!! GOrgeous stamps I think I may have to head on over the cuddly buddly and take a peek!
