A beautiful day

What a difference the sunshine makes, I have been sitting outside with my book and a cup of coffee, I feel so much better !
Well, today has certainly shown me that I need to get a life and get out more!!! ---I was looking in my box of all-sorts for my darning needle, I use it to poke my 3D glue unstuck and other such important jobs lol..... well, I looked and felt around and in the end had to empty the box to find it........it was then I found myself taking to the needle, asking it why it had been hiding from me, when I knew it was in there and how naughty it was !!! Is it just me ????? I felt so daft and stupid when I realised what I was doing, at least it did not answer me...... maybe I should get the machine out and sew myself a white coat hehehehe....... DO I NEED TO GET A LIFE ??? YES !!!!
Today's card is for my neighbour who comes for tea every night, his birthday is not till April but I just wanted to colour this little boy who was enjoying the sun as I had been lol
