When thinking about joining Annie and her smiley meme today I wasn't sure I could find much to smile about this week. It was my cousin's funeral on Wednesday - that's the second death from lung cancer in the family this year - and my asthma has been troublesome limiting my 'get up and go'! However, when I checked back on my photos I did find that in the early part of the week there had been plenty to smile about. Here's a few snapshots from then.
Last Saturday we took a trip to the Maritime Museum in Irvine.

Here we are in the cafe there, where not only did we enjoy a coffee and something wickedly calorific but my husband tried his hand with the camera on my smartphone. He's finally giving into pressure from family & friends and swapping his archaic mobile for something bang up to date so thought he should familiarise himself with all the lovely apps on mine first. He didn't do too badly either.
Other reasons to smile this week have been the 'back to school' shots the family have been sharing.
This adorable trio are Rhian, Brodie & Lacie, my granddaughter's children. Brodie's hair is quite something - apparently he wants a Mohican haircut but mum's not so keen. Lacie is not yet old enough for school but she starts nursery in a couple of weeks.
And here's Callum, my grandson's boy. At three years old he's off to nursery for the first time and looking very pleased about it too.
And almost finally,
This is me at my best.
This is me at my worst!
Keep well, take care and have a wonderful weekend.
