Five on Friday

Thank you to Amy for hosting Five on Friday. Mine is a Saturday edition due to a storm last night. Still Friday in the UK so all is good. Actually I wasn't even going to post a Five on Friday this week because I couldn't think of anything to write. But here I am with a few pictures of things that made me smile recently.
 
 One.
Lovely mail coming in. Look at that sweet puffin card from my lovely friend Sue.
A game of mail tag from my new Jane Austen Letter Writing Society penfriend, Carolyn.
I sent out postcards for my Goodreads group this week and a few letters too.
Definitely something to smile about.

 Two.
Ducklings.
 Three.
Samurai Sudoku. Makes my inner number-nerd smile.

 Four.
Baking. I love baking but I don't bake as much as I used to. Not as many mouths to feed at home now. But I did bake some cakes and slices.

Cheryll and Shez
Five.
A get together yesterday with some of the Aussie sewing blogging ladies.  What a lovely group of ladies. Very sweet and happy and nice to be around. They will all be stitching happily today at Girls' Day in the Country. Fun times.

Have a lovely weekend.
Tracy

Thanks for including the link to the country day out ....... I had always thought it was something some of the bloggers must organise privately! Now I know, I'll be keeping it in mind for next year perhaps! Also loved the link to the Jane Austen writing. You certainly have some lovely things to smile about!
Have a great day
Hugs sharm

These are fun things that made me smile, too. I enjoy Sudoku puzzles - good for the brain, they say. It's always good to get together with sewing friends. Happy weekend - it's Sunday soon for you!

It always good to get actual mail through the post rather than e-mail so I can understand why that would make you smile. Have a great weekend.

It looks as if you have had a good week. I love the penguin card and the little duckling is adorable. xx

A lovely five. I don't write letters nearly often enough. Your sewing group sounds fun and the cake looks delicious. Have a great weekend. Barbara

Ducklings are always worth a post.

Hi Tracey,
Your mail looks very interesting. Aw, such a cute duckling! The cake looks delicious, making me feel really hungry, and I'm sure Cheryll and Shez will be having a great time at Nundle. A very interesting Five! Hope you are having a great weekend!

Lots of lovely moments last week to smile about. Sweet ducklings are so photogenic, the cake looks delicious, mail coming through your letterbox is exciting and meeting up with blog friends who enjoy sewing must have been fun. Hope the coming week is good for you.

I loved that you shared the Jane Austen Letter Writing blog with us. I'm signing up for a pen pal. Love this idea!

That's a nice post. I too love Sudoku and when I get the odd chance the Samuri Sudoku can fill in the best part of a day, just working away at them. Sorry I didn't get to see you at Nundle. House moving had to take priority. Next time......

You have a happy five for sure. I like snail mail too, and getting together with friends.
