Hi Tilly,

Gorgeous card, love it.
I am so glad you have the sun too, and I hope it lasts as we are travelling up north to Sheffield tomorrow. I have my annual appointment for my eye in the hospital there, we are coming home on Saturday. hopefully it will be nice over the few days and not too cold up there.

Hi Tilly, Yes! I'll be at Cardio all day and it would be great to see you. It's on Sat 16th. Always a good day, busy and lovely people.
Why not make a "hangabout" for your 86 year old neighbour. I've made them for a few older people, men included. It's great to sling over the arm of his chair to hold specs, TV zapper, pen, sweeties etc.
There are instructions on my blog and here's the link..

You are quite right, Tilly, about the old family get-togethers. It is so hard to get everyone in the same place at the same time. Our son and his wife both work shifts, and work the care of the children between them. Our son-in-law works long hours, often including weekends. We should all have been together at Christmas, but the two youngest grandchildren got the Norovirus so that was the end of that idea. My grandmother was never happy unless her house was bursting at the seams and then she would fit in more. I love your card, it is such a beautiful image. Have a good week. xx Maggie
