Crumbs, those are both good Fridays for real. Mine's not so great so I won't ruin the mood. Enjoy yours for me too.

Snoop, we all love you, that can be your number one for Friday!

1. I had lunch with my OH's boss, which I was dreading, and it was actually GREAT and she is one of the loveliest people I have met!
2. DH got his work laptop this week: fewer late nights at work as he can work from home in the evenings
3. Today I have gas, electricity AND plumbing, lol
4. I just got home and my baby cats gave me huge kisses and are so pleased to see me
5. My seeds are sprouting in their yoghurt pots and bringing some life in we have lettuces and rocket and some sweet peas.

Great thread idea!

I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.
