OK This is the first time I've tried this '7 Quick Takes Friday' This week hosted by Hallie over at one of my favourite blogs http://www.bettybeguiles.com/ . It's just a nice way to share your quick thoughts on the week and pool them with the other blogs on the hostess site. Here goes:
I am looking forward to all the people who will be calling to say hello to him...the kettle is on...

I have a very very dear friend in Florida who last night spent the night under the same roof as her husband and all three of her gorgeous children after nine month old baby C spending 70 nights in hospital. He gave us all some very worrying moments as he danced on the borders of life before kicking a serious infection. Please add him to your prayers, he has lots of challenges, but it was delightful to see the heart warming photographs on Facebook this morning.
Last night as I was giving my 7 year old a bedtime cuddle I said "Peter, tomorrow morning won't you not leave your pyjamas on the floor?"
