Favourite Things Friday

Every year I a plan to have a week off in February when the kids go back to school, and every year I decide that work is too busy and it will probably just take me a month to catch up.  This time I got the boss to pencil it into his calendar to make sure that he didn't have to go interstate and then when he came back from leave I put in my leave form.  He approved my leave and within days he was told he had to fly to Sydney for a couple of days but he still let me have the week off.  So my favourite thing friday this week is Holidays.  The kids are back at school, DH is back at work and I have a week (5 x 6 hours) of my time well not quite because I have to take Maestro to the Orthodontist on Thursday.  

The to do list goes like this:

The big sewing room clean out is getting finished so I can actually do some sewing
There will be an outing on my birthday
I have 3 assignments to finish on my current subject 
A Chiro visit because of No 1 on the list
Coco is going to get a few trips down the beach for a nice long walk
and if all goes well I will be able to do the first project on this years Mixed Media Kit.

I leave you with a picture of Coco.  This is actually the best picture we have ever taken of her as she just doesn't have any contrast and until now none of our camera's have managed it.   Squid got a new Nixon camera for her birthday and it takes a really good shot I might be borrowing it when she is not around.  

Head over to Mrs P to see who else has a favourite thing this friday.

Well hello Coco! Aren't you all grown up!

I love having those single weeks off work. It somehow feels a little like stolen time. Hope you get everything done on your list and then some.

Enjoy the serenity!
