Welcome to the Friday Funny post .....


I'd like to welcome my latest follower, Sarah, thanks for joining me -  hope to see you again soon.

Hubs and I have been away for a few days, visiting pals in sunny Blackpool ... and it was .. sunny, that is! Slightly photo heavy post so I hope you all have a minute to browse!

See what I mean about SUNNY!?!??!?

Who could resist a photo of these two beach huts .. hubs reckons they're portaloo's but .....

We enjoyed a lovely couple of days with our friends, Mary and Barry who's hospitality is legendary. Mary's sister, Winifred even popped round to say hello. How we wish they all lived a little closer! A lovely meal in Poulton on Tuesday evening, sadly, Mary was poorly on Wednesday evening so (rather than leave her on her own and swan off to dinner) the boys nipped out and got Thai takeout - every bit as nice and Mary perked up as the evening went on I'm pleased to report. Two days is hardly long enough but we fitted in the above sightseeing and even got to play with this little cutie - anyone know what breed of dog she is? She's NINE years old and still wants to play for HOURS!

STILL ready to play!
On to some crafting, I felt the urge to hit the ToC upon my return home after a few days without crafting!

What do you think? Too busy or just right? I wondered initially but, now - I LIKE IT so .... I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. A Bit More Time to Craft - challenge No. 16 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Through The Craft Room Door - March 15th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Cardz4Guyz - challenge No. 111 - SPEED
  4. Seize the birthday - March 10th challenge - THE GREAT DIVIDE
  5. Unicorn - challenge No. 7 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE

And now for the Friday Funny which I found on Facebook so there's no entry in the draw this year, hope you'll enjoyed anyway - it reminded me of Captain Mainwaring in the original series of Dad's Army and it's apt as the Dad's Army movie is still in cinema's .. I believe!

Have a great weekend

Thank you for the welcome, it's lovely to be here. I think the card is just right and I know several people it would be perfect for! Haven't we had a beautiful few days? We went to the seaside to and had a fantastic day at Budleigh Salterton on Saturday. Hope your friend is ok now.
