So What's been Rocking... World this week?

It has been a pretty hectic week but as Virginia says - it is surprising the number of positives and smile generating moments you can findwhen you just take a few moments to look back at the week.

Sunday I had a super day all on my own. Just out and about having a wander. Not having to be anywhere or do anything specific. I popped into the Summerhill Garden Centre to take a look at this year's Christmas display and happily whiled away a couple of hours just gazing at beautifully decorated trees and picking up ideas that I want to try for myself...I was like a kid in a candy store. Oh to have the money to buy all the wonderful things that I saw. I have to say that I was very good and didn't spend a penny in there but I do have a list of bits that might find their way home with me come payday.

My Team at work had their first two training sessions of a four session event - I have to say, after session one I was not looking forward to session two as it was double the length (session one seemed to go over the heads of most of my folk and they really didn't engage with the trainer). However, session two was a Team-build type event and if there is one thing my folk do well is that they work as a team...and boy did they pull out all the stops. The trainer was extremely impressed and I was very, very proud of their efforts & achievements. Here's hoping sessions 3 & 4 go as well.

The lovely Scrappyjen dropped by my blog to say she had shared this with me...
The Liebster Award is shared amongst blogs with less than 200 followers - I am supposed to share this with 5 other bloggers but I am having such a hard time picking just 5.Thank you so much Jen for thinking of me - I'm going to have to give this some more thought so I can add in links to the folk I want to share this with.

I noticed this poster on another platform at the station (not a platform I use very often) and although I could tell that it was Christmassy, it was too far away to read what it said...light-bulb moment...I took a photo. Surprisingly it came out pretty well and now I know it is advertising all the Festive events being held at the Barbican.
I was pretty pleased with how well the photo came out.

The old Mall in Stratford has pretty Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling but there isn't much else at the moment to indicate that Christmas isn't that far away - still, never mind, just a couple more weeks and I can put the decs up in work.

I know Starbucks are getting a lot of bad press at the moment because of not paying tax here in the UK, but that still doesn't stop me loving their Gingerbread lattes.
The one I had on Friday was double cupped so I have decided to have a go at making a coffee cup mini-album. Whilst looking for details on-line (I had seen some examples in the past) I also came across instructions for making mini-albums from the coffee cup sleeves...I have quite a collection of these at work...with luck I'll be able to make good use of them.

If you would like to share the positives that have made your week, why not hop ove to Virgini's blog and play along................................

Oh what a fab week, yay to your team embracing the team building will keep fingers and toes crossed for a positive session 3 and 4.

Well done you for keeping your cards at bay whilst visiting gorgeous decorations, there are quite a few out there at the moment that I've seen!

Congrats on the award, think I had that one given some time ago, can't say that it improved the number of followers mind LOL!

Hope you have had a good weekend and that your week ahead is beautiful and blessed.

As always thanks for joining in, its so lovely to share someone else's positives.

Ooh, you are all Christmassy! Well done for not spending any money on the lovely (but expensive) decorations - but coming away with some brilliant ideas instead, that's the way to do it!

I too MUST get some Starbucks cups!!!!

Your guys at work did you proud with their team building which is brilliant :)

Have a great week!
