Hello lovely ladies, It's Friday again (Doesn't it come round quick!). Let's share some smiles and good moments of our week. I will be joining Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia at Rocking Your week Friday.
My smiles always start at my postbox. Every postcard I receive is a pleasure. This week I received this colourful postcard from China. I have no idea what it represents, but it looks fun.
The person who sent it is called Lin Lihuan, who lives in Foshan. She tells me Foshan is a beautiful city. Here is a montage of photos I found in Wikipedia.
The stamps are lovely. The creature on the left is a sticker. The other three are postage stamps.
She also used some food stickers.
It has been a good week this week. Here are the collages I made.
I watched Shaz's funeral on Friday morning via the link that Doug had provided. I agree that funerals are not a laughing matter, but i want to include this one in my smiles as I think it was a positive experience saying goodbye to her.
Saturday was a quiet day, and we didn't go anywhere. It was our daughter in law's birthday, so we had a video link to celebrate.
I love Sundays. Hubby usually makes scrambled eggs on toast (He does that really well) and then we watch two church services and sing our hearts out with the worship.
In the afternoon I planted the geraniums I bought at the market in the pots we bought recently. In the photo you see the pot already hung on the (white) wall of the patio.
Monday is the day we run errands and do shopping. Hubby needed a walk so we walked to the post office, after I'd been to the gym. Then sat down in a bar that has a lovely patio at the back and enjoyed the mild weather with a nice coffee.
Tuesday was my birthday and I enjoyed opening my cards at breakfast. My sister in law had sent me a present from the UK. She had knitted a beautiful shawl in mohair wool. Gorgeous. Also she probably didn't realize but it is my favorite colour.
Hubby took me out for lunch and in the afternoon my best friend popped in and we opened a bottle of bubbly. Parties are not allowed yet. I think the maximum is 6 people together..
We didn't go out on Wednesday, just relaxed after my birthday. I cooked pasta carbonara and we finished the bottle of bubbly, which was really nice in spite of being alcohol free.
Yesterday was a busy day. In the morning we drove into town for hubby's first visit to the oncologist. The results were better than we expected. His cancer is stage 3 which means it has not spread. So he only has to have chemo therapy. No radiotherapy needed. After the hospital we popped to the ironmonger for some bits and bobs hubby needed, and we came out at 2 pm. We stopped at a restaurant for coffee but it was too late to have coffee, so we stopped for a meal in stead. After all we had reason to celebrate!
In the evening we had some more excitement as my new cooker arrived at 7. So last night we connected it and then spent half an hour peeling all the protective plastic off. This one has an oven with a thermostat! Bliss! No more guess work when baking. There is only one brand that does gas ovens with a thermostat. I have one in the upstairs flat and I love it. Now I have splashed out and bought one for downstairs too. (A birthday present to myself)
That was my week. How was yours?
Of course I will give you some funnies at the end, but for now I am leaving you.
Stay safe, stay healthy and
