These guys came to call yesterday!
My husband pushed the boat out last evening and treated me to dinner ....... here!!!

It was delicious ..... we weren't that hungry and decided that it would be a waste to head out to a restaurant and then leave half of it so we decided a doughnut and coffee would be perfect, which it was!

It's the birthday of my crafting pal (Sir Andy of Stafford) today so .. HAPPY BIRTHDAY matey, I happen to know you have company to assist with your celebrations so am sure you will have a good day.

 Have a fab Thursday - see you tomorrow for my normal post and Friday Funny
