What beautiful weather

We have had such beautiful weather over the last week, here near Manchester.
On Friday, because him indoors is still around, we had neighbour's in for a domino night as Mum enjoys these get togethers lol.
On Saturday, it was so warm we decided to take her to Southport. on the way we called at a farm shop and spent loads lol. It was crowded on Lord Street and the pavement cafe's were full. I bought Mum some new shoes (she has funny feet so have to go to special shops) we did some shopping then had tea at a small Scottish cafe..... What good value for money, and the food was delicious...... we will certainly go back there again !!!
Sunday was spent reading in the sunshine in the garden while himself planted some runner beans, strawberries and peppers bought the day before.......

Todays card is one I sent last week, I was late with it of course lol, so just a simple card, but it did look effective in real life........

Coloured with promarkers
