Get Well

Hello!  I'm later today as this morning I was waiting for the engineer to come and fix the washing machine.  It decided to let all it's water out over the floor the other day, just when I'd a heap to wash.  Thankfully, my bestest friend, said I could take my washing to her house last night when I was going to visit her anyway.  The chap came just before lunchtime so I'm now back in business.

It's the most beautiful day here again, sun and warmth (in the craft room anyway!).  My granddaughter and I are off to the the concert hall this evening.  There's a Russian skating group performing Cinderella on Ice.  We went to see them last year when they did Peter Pan and we thoroughly enjoyed it so hopefully tonight will be just as good.  I'm picking her up in a while and we're going out for tea first.

I've put my name down for GJWTHF craft day in Perth in June and was rooting around the tutors' blogs and saw a card like this on Debbi's blog so I've cased it ... thanks Debbi!
