Friday Smiles Week 141

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today it's quite cold and very overcast here and I think we'll have rain before long.  However we have a friend coming for lunch today so I'm doing a roast and we'll enjoy a good chat and a glass of red no doubt.

Tonight I'm going to a card class which I'm looking forward to and there are lots of footie matches to watch on television over the weekend so I've lots to look forward to.

I got a brochure in the post this week (see pics) for a retirement home.  Some of the junk mail we all get but it was addressed to me.  Although I'm retired I'm certainly not ready to leave my little cottage yet.

I think I would feel very out of place in a place like this.  I'd feel I had to dress for dinner each night and that's not me at all.  I don't enjoy dressing up and feel much more comfortable with informality.  That's just me now I'm older I suppose.

I'm linking this post up with Annie's blog where we share Smiles on Friday

Whatever your plans for the weekend I hope you enjoy yourself.

Hope you enjoy your lunch. I shall be listening to the commentary of Bristol Rovers tomorrow as that's my team. They are playing away otherwise I'd be going as I have a season ticket! I too enjoy watching other games and I often listen to the commentaries on the radio. Bit old school! Take care Zo xx

Have a super lunch Barbs, I like the look of that place, do they do holiday getaways for the slightly younger generation? It looks very relaxing.

Enjoy your day and your card class.

Hugs Erika. x

Hi Barb, thanks for the visit. Sounds like you're in for a nice day. I sometimes wonder where these companies get there info from. The place looks to tidy to me not sure they would like paint and paper everywhere Lol! Although maybe that would shake them up a bit! Have a great day, Angela X

Good grief Barb! That home looks like the one in the film 'Quartet'!! Really good film BTW with a host of well known names such as Maggie Smith, Pauline Collins, Billy Connelly and directed by Dustin Hoffman. I did giggle at the serene lady swimming with her earrings in and her perfectly coiffured hair held well above the waterline :))
