Good morning dear blog chums. Hope this finds you and yours well?
A picture heavy post today, I'm afraid as I thought I'd share some Silverstone snaps too as happily, I made it to the GP.......hurrah!!!
It was down to the wire and my goodness, it was a struggle at times but the staff at Silverstone were great and got us a buggy to ride along on from the car park to the grandstand and a bit of the way back too as I did manage a very slow walk 2/3 of the way back after the race.
I know its the tablets that are making me breathless but not much I can do until my cardiology referral is sorted.
Now, today's card is another from John's shows at the end of May (aren't his Christmas stamps terrific?) and would probably make a decent sympathy or get well card too.
Ivory & Rich Plum Foundation card
SB Fancy Postage Stamps die (extended)
Hougie Board for the scoring
John Lockwood Larkspur Elements stamps (florals in panel)
John Lockwood Peony Elements stamps (sentiment)
Versamark (for watermark effect down the panel)
Memento Dewdrop Sweet Plum ink
Quite CAS but simple sometimes does it for me lol!!!
Now, I hope you don't mind a couple of indulgent F1 snaps. It rained when we got to the circuit but I was still smiling and 10 minutes before the race started, we had a hailstorm with hail the size of marrowfat peas (and no, our grandstand wasn't covered lol!!!) but I was still smiling.
The drivers go round the circuit before the race on the trailer and wave to fans. The trailer actually stopped in front of Vale where we were and Jenson and Lewis jumped off and came over to greet fans. Jenson actually threw some McLaren hats over the fence (too far for me to hurl my M&S finest at him lol!!!)
The Red Arrows put on a very fine display of aerobatics. This was about the only decent shot I got, Just before the hail started.
Had to show a photo with the cars so here's 3 of them...........and yes, the Sun did come out and stayed out for the rest of the race (my face looks like I've had week in Spain lol!!!)
Thank you so much for all of your positive thoughts and good wishes as I'm sure that in no small part, they encouraged me to just gird my loins (well, if I had loins to gird) and go for it.
I was one exhausted but happy girlie.
Only trouble is, I want to go again. I think Mr D hoped that I would have got it out of my system now but nahhhh..................me wants more lol!!!
Anyhoo, time for bed said Zebedee (I'm scheduling).
