Joy Pockets

I have had a very low key week,
I didn't do too much housework or running around and it was nice to just take time off and smell the roses.

The joy pockets of my week were -

Finding a lovely soft fleecy throw this morning 
and it cost all of €6
along with a change purse for €3.50
Bargains!!  I do love a bargain.

My lovely daughter being offered a new job
although she didn't take it
it was great that she had a big confidence booster.

My husband away with work for 5 days 
so I have a snore free bedroom! 

Happy to hear from husband everyday 
a quick conversation and an "I love you" at the end.

Starting to knit once again, 
I am a useless knitter, I keep dropping stitches and losing count
but it brings me such relaxation.

Sitting reading my favourite magazine in the garden
and for once the sun did shine!

Being told by my teenage son 
"you look nice today Mum"

What a nice idea - finding pockets of joy as you look back on your week. I laughed at your 'snore free bedroom' one. I'm the snorer in our family and DH has been known to bail out to the spare room so he can get some sleep!

Love the quiet bedroom all to self. I love being able to miss my hubs, seeing them again is that much sweeter, yes? Knitting--love!! And thrifty treasures--so much fun!!

Wonderful that your son gave you this gift of a compliment.
It is nice that you had a calm week (no snoring as well).
Happy weekend.

Nothing like hearing "I love you."

Snore-free nights - bliss!!!!

All such wonderful things. Especially no snoring, reading a magazine outdoors in the sun and a son who complimented you!!! Life is good sometimes isn't it?!!

have a wonderful weekend.

Love your blog :) Your joy pockets made me smile especially the snore free bedroom (a personal dream of mine). Taking time out of the housework is always good especially when you use that time to pamper yourself with a magazine.

Good luck with the knitting. In my house the patterns generally end up with 'Knit one, purl one, drop one, curse'. :)
