Hi folks, how are things? Have you had a good week?Have you had plenty to smile about?
My week has been full of good moments, some of which I will share here.
My postcard for today arrived from Germany a few days ago:
I love turtles and I also like black and white cards, so this one was a hit!
So, what have I been up to. I have had no end of computer problems, which I am not going to bore you with and my desk top is still not 100%, but at least it works!
Saturday I attended the second session of my course learning about Adobe Lightroom. Here is the class:
The teacher speaks very fast and I struggle to understand him. My laptop had to be reformatted and Windows 7 put on. This is now done so this coming Saturday I will be able to follow the course and see what I'm doing.
Sunday was a great day. We go to church and in the evening we have our house group. A friend invited us to lunch. She had cooked lentils:
Here is my hubby on the 'boys' table:
The lentils were lovely. She had also made a fruit salad:
Our elderly neighbour often brings us some of his produce. This week he brought a basket of broad beans (fava beans):
A lot is happening on the building front. The windows have been put in. Here is the glazier with his lorry unloading the frames:
Here is the patio door:
By now all windows and doors have been put in with the glass and the fly screens and the shutters. Hurray!
I have also bought the tiles for the whole appartment:
It has a wood grain in it and is light coloured. I think it will look neutral and very nice.
Of course I have been baking this week. The choc cake I made was a total disaster! It was so bad, we all laughed our heads off!
I had cut it in half and had placed one half on top of the other with some choc sauce in between. It just completely broke up and fell apart. The boys called it an earth quake cake. The geologist in me saw a volcano with lava flowing out. Anyway, it tasted lovely and we all had a good laugh!
Now I will finish with some funnies about mannequins:
Ok, I'm off to Annies at A Stitch in Time and I will also link up with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. See you there!
Have a good week,
with lots of smiles,
