Another wet day!



I am getting fed up now of this rain!, We had eight days of cloudless skies and hot sun, but I don't think we need to balance it with THIS much water! I hope you are keeping well and warm. I have the central heating on today for Mum as she soon gets cold. IN JUNE !

It was Aunty Sue's birthday on Thursday and I went to visit her, we had a lovely afternoon tea, with a chocolate birthday cake, yum!
She had lots of lovely hand made cards and this is the one that I made for her!

Yesterday, we went to the parish church in town, they did a wonderful Jubilee flower extravaganza. It ranged from the birth and Christening of our Queen, the Wedding, through the Coronation, trouping of the colours, garden parties, Royal Ascot and Prince Charles's investiture. 12 sections in all. It was stunning. Then we went for tea and cakes next door at the church school room!
Food seems to have played quite a big part of my week lol

Hi Tilly

Beautiful stunning card, love the flowers and the image, I think it's one of your best.

I hope it gets better, we have had so much rain this week, today is a lovely day, but don't blink they say it's coming back tomorrow, we took a real beating over the last couple of days, certainly don't want that back. At least I got my washing dry today, we too have had the heating on over the last few days.
