Hi there, Monday morning and all's well!
Well almost all's well anyway, but more of that in a moment.
First off, I'd like to welcome new follower, Lisa Mason, hope you'll stop by from time to time and maybe leave me a comment - I do love to read comments!
I hope you all enjoyed your Easter Sunday, whatever you ended up doing. We went to the home of our neighbours, Sally and Roger, to join them for their family Easter. Unfortunately, Roger's brother was unable to join us as he's currently in hospital. We've known Sally and Roger for 17 years now and have met Roger's brother on many, many occasions so, naturally, we wish him well and today I set about making him a get well card. Back to the Easter Sunday celebrations. We had thought it was a BBQ but it turned out to be a sit down dinner with baked ham, creamed potatoes, peas, sweetcorn - the whole nine yards - FABULOUS. Everyone seemed to have contributed something but they must have known about my cooking as we were only asked to provide the beer! There was a house full of us and three dogs, how no-one fell in the pool is a mystery to me but no-one did, though Brianna did venture in but, as she was in a swimsuit it really doesn't count! The rest of us were content to sit round the edge with our feet in the pool to cool us down! We had a great time and, although I suspect Sally doesn't check my blog but . . . . . THANK YOU Sally and Roger for your hospitality and I hope Cliff is soon feeling much better.
Of course there was, as there always seems to be, too much food so we came away with a magnificent amount of baked ham and some super yummy desserts too - that'll be at least a round of sandwiches and a hot meal, with dessert then!
Anyway, we've woken today without a hangover (thank heavens) and with no real plans for the day which has dawned hot and sunny - no more that you might expect here in the sunshine state! Hubby's reading the paper and I thought I would set to making a get well card for Cliff.
I hope you like it, please feel free to leave me a comment. It's an "Off Centre" creation and I aim to make it my second submission over on Simply Less Is More where there are already well over 100 entries since the challenge was posted on Saturday morning. Not checked it out yet? Then do pop along using this link here and have a look.
Have a wonderful Monday and enjoy the sunshine - how lovely to have a warm and sunny Bank Holiday in the U.K. - so not what we're really used to, eh?!?!?
