Five for Friday - 5 Things That Made Me Smile This Week

Here are my 5 smiley things to join in the Five for Friday fun over at Aspiring Mum.

Family Fun...

Miss M's Charlie and Lola party was great but it was especially so because of time with our close family and a special family we do life with. It makes me smile to have such special people around us. Here's a picture Miss M drew after the party. It's her "whole family". She loves them dearly.

Hilarious Colin...

On Monday the girls and I went to the Colin Buchanan concert. (ex-Playschool presenter) He is such a funny entertainer. We had a hoot seeing him play all his different characters on stage and sing the songs we know so well. This concert gave me more than one reason to smile. It was great!

Blessing of a Friend...

I have a special friend who I have known for many many years now. We had our first girls 10 days apart and now they share a friendship too. This friend and I love to do crafty things and talk about anything and everything. We took our girls to the Colin Concert together and then afterwards they came back here for a play date. It was just lovely to spend extra time together, sharing lunch and chatting while the kids played.

Another Treasure Found...

Finding "treasures" at Op Shops always make me smile (as you probably know by now). This was what we found on a treasure hunt yesterday - a beaded maze. It will be great for some quiet play.

Girls in Boxes...

We like to use different spaces in the house for play, quiet time, reading etc. Today the girls opted to sit in boxes while I read them their stories before rest time. It was something different and it made me smile that they thought of it.

Ah the weekend is almost upon us. I'm sure I could fill a blog post and more with things that make me smile on a weekend. Family time is so precious.

Do you have some things that made you smile this past week? Why not share them by linking in to Debbie's Five for Friday at Aspiring Mum. And, while you are there, check out her amazing giveaway.

I love the drawing that Miss M did - just beautiful! We would've loved to have gone to see Colin, but had other things on this year.

That's so lovely that your friend's daughter is so close to Miss M. I have a friend like that too - our kids are very similar in age and it's always so special when we get together.

Thanks for sharing your smiley things!

It's great to know you're a Colin fan too Julie.

You missed a great concert Debbie but I'm sure he'll be back next year. Hope your having a wonderful weekend with your girls back.
