Joy in the Everyday Ordinary - June, 15-21

Hi there again everyone 😀

It's that time of the week again. Time to see what everyday ordinary stuff has been making me smile over the last seven days.

Martin's been at work, so I've been flying solo, but there has still been plenty going on to capture. Just ordinary stuff but, let's face it, that is what makes up a huge proportion of our lives, well it does here anyway, so it's really important that we take time to appreciate how amazing the ordinary can be.

Here are my last seven days ...
Day 15 - We were due out with the craft stall on Saturday so I decided to do my first bit of craft in ages to top up my stock. I always love a crafty day.

Day 16 - At the Armitage Village Day with the craft stall. Here we are all decked out in a World Cup theme for our most productive fair yet.

Day 17 - Fathers' Day ... and wouldn't be complete without a visit 💜

Day 18 - I quite often get a shout from Martin when he's out back and the light is amazing. I'm not an accomplished enough photographer to capture it properly, but the sky was dark and the house at the back and the leaves on the trees were really catching the light from the evening sun. It was pretty impressive. 

Day 19 - Another crafty day. This time working on some sensory taggy blankets for a customer with children with special needs. I just love this cactus fabric and I even managed to find ribbon with cacti on 😁

Day 20 - My plans for a productive day went out of the window with an invite to lunch from one of my closest friends and my god daughter to mark the very near end of a long old road of study for my god daughter. The first 'naughty' meal I've had this week and boy was it worth it. We all had pies and they were all amazing!

Day 21 - I don't know what was up with me today. I was up at 6.00am, which is never heard of. I can't believe how much I got done with the extra three hours on my normal getting up time ... even with a pleasant distraction from a visit from mum and dad which, of course, involved a sit in the garden. We planted this rose last year, having seen one in a garden at a local village open gardens event. It is called 'Rhapsody in Blue' and fits perfectly in my purple themed raised bed 💜
