What's Rocking your World Friday...

...on a Saturday (at least it's a day earlier than last week LOL).
If you still aren't sure what this is all about, hop over to Virginia's blog where she will give you a bit more detail - but in a is taking the time to look back over the last 7 days and share the lovely things that have brightened your world.

So, what has rocked my world this week...

Hotwater bottles - the weather has been so damp & chilly this week that it has been lovely to snuggle up on the sofa of an evening with a fleece covered hotwater bottle in front of the TV.

Cybercrops - it seems sooooooooooooooo long since there was a CC over on UKScrappers but there is one starting at the end of this month (with a few things taking place in the run-up). I signed up and was allocated to the Detectives team. It has been fun 'meeting up' with old friends who I haven't seen much of since the last CC.

Visiting with family - it was lovely to get a chance to spend some time with my niece who was on a brief visit to the UK from Germany. Shame she wasn't able to take advantage of the 30% off weekend at Pinnacle Crafts and even more of a shame that the weather was so grotty Tuesday evening...but it was lovely to see her and spend some time with her.

Jacket Potatoes - we have a cafe near the office who serve the most MAHOOSIVE jacket spuns you could possibly imagine. Filled with bolognaise (sp?) they are just fab.

Shops - the real bricks & mortar type...not on-line virtual ones. I don't like ordering stuff on-line if I haven't had a chance to see it in the flesh and I certainly don't like having to pay huge amounts of P&P, so it was great that I found out the big John Lewis store in Westfield (Stratford) stocks Liz Earle toiletries. I was able to pick up one of the limited edition Cleanse & Polish - smells devine. Also whilst in Westfield I popped into HMV to look for the Daniel Craige Bond films - they only had one but it was really cheap - £3. However, I didn't get it. They had the 50th anniversary box set of all 23 Bond movies reduced to just over £40...well, it would have been rude not to take advantage of the bargain.

Friends - just spending some 'girly' time wandering around craft shops and having coffee & cake, whilst not really being in a rush to be anywhere else (even if I did end up spending more than I intended LOL).

Dark evenings - I love & hate these. I really don't enjoy leaving for work in the dark or returning the same way but it is lovely to snuggle up on the sofa in front of the fire with the lights dimmed and just watch some TV - seems so much more cosy.

Haven't done a lot of crafting this week and haven't taken many photos but I came across this pic on-line.
The dark clouds give this photo a very moody feel.

Well that was what rocked my week, why don't you hop over to Virginia's blog and see what is rocking the world for the other Rockettes..................................

A wonderful Autumnal feel to this week's Rocking post :) I know just what you mean about having a love/hate relationship with dark nights.

Coffee, cake and a catch up with friends, great fun!

You're right, it WOULD have been rude not to have bought all those dvd's!!!

Have a great week,

Hello you - so sorry it's taken a while for me to get to your post - life keeps getting in the way! Hot water bottles, dark nights and jacket potatoes - yes you've definitely summed up the turn in that weather. I too am not a lover of leaving work when it's dark - but the other things - well they are all great!

Coffee cake catch up crafting - cyber crop - yes I can see a definite theme here. I too have been assigned to the Detectives it would be nice to get some 'evening' in which to join in though - things a little mad and hectic around here!

I hope you're week has been good up to now and continues to be beautiful and blessed
