A bit of a busy week topped with a very happy Thursday. My first great granddaughter was born at 4.34am weighing in at 8lbs 8oz, Mum and baby Alice Ada are doing well and coming home today. I went last night for my first cuddles.
 It looks like rain here for most of the day, it will help to water the garden.

Good morning...

Here at Crafty Catz we have our challenge 470...and this week our host is the lovely Nick. Her chosen theme is anything goes with a twist  of 'Heroes and Villans... I found this a bit difficult not watching much t.v. or reading the comic strips lol.... our sponsor this week is

The prize 2 single black and white images of the winner's choice.

Really old  DC papers....(I am determined to end my paper pad fetish lol ) I decided to keep it simple,  image kindly given by sponsor, coloured with PM's and chalk, spellbinders dies, flowers and gems from stash, sentiment PC generated.


Another week has flown by, It stayed dry last Saturday for the Church strawberry tea which was a sell-out yet again. Being on my feet from 11.30am until 7pm did mean doing NOTHING  on Sunday !!Just where has 'Summer' hibernated to this year? warm but wet this country you just get on with your plans whatever is thrown at you, it gives us something to talk/ moan about !

My brother managed to call on Tuesday and cut my lawn with his strimmer(I got rid of the mower when I thought I was having it flagged.... until given prices) I called it my wildflower meadow, to help the insects and bees, it was a good three foot high, interesting enough..... I did have a few small wild flowers that I have not seen before.
