Good morning everyone. Hope all is ok with you and yours?
What a lovely week weather wise. . . . . . . . . .well, it has been here in The Pond lol!!!
Am I sad to take so much pleasure in seeing a line of washing bobbing about in the sunshine with a gentle warm breeze hahaha!!!
Managed to get some crafting done this week. Mojo has returned from its extended holiday so I'm making the most of it in case it decides to jet off again.
This week, I have also managed a grocery shop with Mr D, had a little pootle around Hobbycraft and yesterday, the lovely Nesta took me out to a local garden centre, where we had lunch and a gentle stroll around. It was smashing and great to be able to walk around without getting out of breath. These new tablets do have some side effects but thankfully breathlessness hasn't been one of them, so far.
On the subject of Hobbycraft, I bought some great 3mm off white pearls branded Simply Creative (they are part of Trimcraft) They are glued separately, so no having to chop them apart, 1080 in the pack all for £1.00. . . . . . . bargain!!! They do them in larger sizes too. I think that's the best deal I've had with pearls. Not often I can say bargain and Hobbycraft in the same sentence but hats off to them.
Now, today's card is one I made for Nesta to give our friend Davey (the guy who has more stamps in his passport than Alan Whicker) for his birthday in June. . . . . . .yes, I'm a bit behind lol!!! As it was a special birthday (sorry David, I've let the number out of the bag) he spent it in Australia and mounted Uluru. . . . . . . . . .no, that's nothing rude with that woman out of Star Trek, he climbed Ayres Rock lol!!!

Well, Singapore GP this weekend. . . . . . . I can almost smell the chicken satay at Lau Pa Sat ummmmm!!! Been lucky enough to visit Singapore a few times, when visiting my family in Malaysia but not for the GP. Bet it would be amazing to see a night street race.
For those of you lucky enough to be going to Ally Pally this weekend, I'm very jealous and sad that I can't make it. Hope you have a wonderful time and get to say "Hi" to my mate Wendywoo (Spanish Crafter) who has come over from Spain to help out on the CE stall.
Also, for those of you who saw Elaine's (Nattyboots) comment on my last post, her son Andrew has been very ill but is hopefully on the road to recovery. I didn't like to mention anything before as I didn't think it was my place to as I wasn't sure how public the news was. Poor Elaine has also had a poorly leg to contend with too so big hugs to the Nattyboots family.
Anyhoo, that's me for now. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
