Because ...

... one of the many great things about having a blog is that you can look back at nearly two years of Fridays and see what you were up to.



Because ... now and again it's good to choose your favourite Friday photos.



Because ... it's been a long, grey week and we need some cheering up.




Because ... this wonderful man died yesterday and the world will miss his beautiful voice.




Because ... Big Sister has had such a tough week and I am reminded how grateful I am not to be a teenager anymore.




Because ... Little Sister has had a spotty, rashy kind of week and now she's all better.



Because ...today is Friday and it's sweetie day.



Because ... the sun is shining but it's bitterly cold.




Because ... we all need a bit of colour in our lives.



Because .... It's Friday and in a few hours my lovely family will be home for the weekend.



Because ... My blog has allowed me so many things.



Because ... There aren't enough eiderdowns in the world to keep this little creature as warm as she would like.



Because ... An unexpected phone call from a dear friend at the start of the day makes me smile.



Because ... we all like a bit of pretty on a Friday



Because ... It's so good to know that there are so many of you who feel exactly the same.



Just because ...
