Rocking your World Friday - 12 July

Hello folks. Friday again and time to join in with Virginia in counting our blessings for the last week. Ive been joining in with this for only four or five weeks so far but already I feel the benefit.

All to often I'm very prone to seeing the negative side of things and having to stop each week and think about your blessings and what you are grateful for really helps to show you the positives in life.

So first up Im grateful for stumbling over Virginia's blog and joining in with this. I now feel a part of a blogging community and have discovered so many lovely folks and lovely blogs packed full of inspiring projects.

Andy Murray, what can I say, the boy from Dunblane did it!!!

Im still grateful for the lovely sunny weather -despite being stuck in the office five days of the week. Its still lovely to travel to and from work in the sunshine and to sit outside in the garden in the evenings doodling away in peace

These two beauties which arrived this week which I bought with some of the money my parents gave me for my birthday Pic) I am loving the art doodle love book. My doodling skills and imagination for what to doodle are very limited at the moment but I think this wee book is going to help with that and its been very theraputic just whiling away an hour or so happily doodling with no particular purpose. The Dina Wakely book is just brilliant. I love all of her examples and the book is very interesting and full of great design tips. Its by my bedside so I can have a quick flick through it each night .

Eating a bit healthier - look at these beauties here - we have been munching on delicious berries all week and I have to say between eating a wee bit healthier than I usually do and and the lovely sunshine I am feeling much better and have a bit more energy that I usually do.

Thats it from me this week. Hop over to Viriginia's to see what all the rockettes have been up to this week and I will hopefully see you back here next Friday


  1. It really does make a difference clocking the positives doesn't it! Great therapy, you suddenly start seeing things you didn't see before. The weather being kinder to us over recent weeks has been lovely (albeit that i can't sit out in it), it's nice to feel we are having a summer! Love your open journal book - beautiful and your new reading material!

    I hope you have a beautiful and blessed week ahead.

    Much love.

  2. Gorgeous looking art pages there...I will have to look out for those books, they sound just what I need. Thanks for sharing. Caro x (#4)

  3. I wholeheartedly agree with the effects of Rocking Friday. I used to be prone to quite black moods and looking on the negative side and fully credit Virginia's Rocking Friday for re-programming my brain.

    Both those books look great - they've been recommended to me by Amazon numerous times - I may have to add them to the list ;)

    Have a great week Suzy :)
