A Postcard A Day - Friday 28 June 2019 - Friday Smiles

Hello lovely girls, 
It's Friday again, time to reflect on the past week and all our blessings. 
I'm back home again after staying in Holland with my mum for a week. We had a lovely week just pottering about. We chatted, I cooked nice meals (and I made lots of portions to put in the freezer), and went out sometimes.

It's a real privilege to have such a wonderful mum like mine. I am very proud of her, living on her own with limited mobility and almost no eyesight. It can't be easy. 

But it's always good to be home again with my lovely hubby and now that my suitcase is unpacked, i look forward to my own routine again.
I apologise for neglecting to comment on many of your blog posts. Now I'm home again, I promise 'to do better'.

If that weren't enough smiles, I also have a postcard. A happy mail box always makes me smile.

Here is my postcard for today. It comes from Finland and tries to picture the sauna culture. The bucket holds the water used to sprinkle on top of the hot stove and creates a bit of humidity. (and sometimes a nice smell)

The stamp features the Finnish flag.

That's it from me today: short and sweet.

Have a lovely weekend, and a good week ahead. 

Don't forget to visit Annie who hosts this Friday Smiles, and then you might also want to visit Virginia, who's blog is called Rocking Your Week Friday.

Bye for now,


  1. I was so lovely to hear about your time spent with your truly are blessed. Hope you're managing to keep cool. Thanks for the funnies...brilliant.

  2. I'm glad you got to spend time with your mother. Lovely postcard and stamp. I enjoyed your funnies.

  3. So glad you and your mother had that time together. It extended her vacation and you had an extra week with her. Being home is best, though.

    Your postcard is adorable, and that stamp is beautiful.

    Laughed at the funnies, especially the grandmother tale.

    Have a super remainder of Friday and a great weekend. I can't believe I just woke and am visiting so late. I'm trying to get on a "child friendly" schedule instead of "computer visit friendly" schedule.

  4. I aspire to be as independent as your mom as I get older :) I love a sauna, but they're not common around here like the hot tubs are. I got such a kick out of the dog water sign lol

  5. Hi Lisca, I don't know where you find them but your funnies certainly make me smile your. Your mum looks really well. I'm late this week as we've been a bit busy and had a frantic call from my mum today saying that they couldn't close or lock the back door. We've managed to get someone out and apparently he's been busy all day as the heat has caused a problem with the locks due to the composite doors getting hot and swelling. We're just not used to the heat here. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Angela xXx

  6. My computer has been playing up this week, I've commented on this a few times and each time it keeps losing it, I'm trying again to see if I can get it to link.

    anyway I digress, your Mum really is amazing and how fantastic to have spent time with her both in your own home and in hers.

    I'm sure your hubby was glad to see you home though, I hope you are both well and that you've had a good week.

    Loving the funnies as always, here goes let's see if it will play ball tonight.
