Second chances, prizes and big talk

Ahhh Friday night. How I love thee. The whole weekend stretches out lazily before you. Full of promise, anything is possible for two sweet days. It's always been my most favourite time of the week.

It's been quite the week this week. Last week, all felt right with the world. This week, I feel completely and utterly out of sync. Why? I'm not sure. I'm sure I'll find my groove again soon.

Despite feeling a little wonky, I have a lot to be grateful for this week. So let's go!

* Second chances – no matter who you are, there will be some time in your life when you'll need a second chance. I think everyone deserves one. They are wonderful, because it's often hard to get it right the first time.

* Prizes – there are few things nicer than winning a prize. Today that always hilarious and sweet Mrs Woog awarded me a prize on her blog. Some 'Princess-y' stuff the girls are going to swoon over. It's good to know my sibling rough-housing was award-winning. It's even nicer to know the witty Mrs Woog thought I was funny, now that's the real prize.

* Big talk – If you've read my blog for a while, you'll know I hate small talk. I do, however, love big talk. Sitting down and having a real and honest conversation with someone. To talk openly, to listen to truth and really communicate. Nothing feeds the soul like it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to play along with Maxabella's Loves I'm grateful for...


  1. Totally agree, Friday nights rock!

  2. Well, congrats on the prize! Sssh....don't tell too many people that you can win great stuff on blogs. I've won a few things now and I think it's FABULOUS!

    Around here, we call Friday night, 'Frideeee night'. Lovin' it.

    Enjoy your weekend. ;) x

  3. Congrats on your prize. Just read your winning entry. Great stuff!
    Happy Friday Night!


  4. Can't beat that ice cold glass of wine on a Friday evening. Tells me the week's woes are behind us and lots of brilliant stuff to follow. Have a great weekend. :-)

  5. Congratulations on the prize winning.!!!
    I'm looking forward to the day I can brag about winning big, until then, I'll just enter everything like a nut!

    I am with you in regards to loving Big Talk, as opposed to Small Talk. It's a lot more meaningful and makes me feel like people give a toss about what I have to say :D

  6. Great minds think alike... Friday nights do rock!

    Lucky you to win a prize- it's always a nice lift to your spirits isn't it.

  7. Friday night is my favourite night of the week. I just adore it. Congrats on the prize. Hope you feel a bit more on track next week. Its not uncommon to be totally on track one week and then slightly derailed the next. I blame two things ... hormones and lack of chocolate!

  8. I'm so glad you won Mrs Woog's prize - randy had selected me but I had opted out due to an overflowing beautay cabinet!

  9. Big talk is the only type of talk I indulge in (which gets awkward at the school gate, believe me!) Congrats on being a Woogsy Winner too. x

  10. congratulations on your fab win - always nice to win something

    Second chances - something for me to think about definitely and that giving second chances is just as important as being able to receive them perhaps?
