Recently returned from our vacation somewhere warm and sunny (missing it already) - want to see some pix?

A few domestic chores - taking the doors off to repair them, then finding the pump on the washing machine had chucked its hand in!

We rewarded ourselves!

A little trouble with the wildlife!
Right over our heads at around 08:00

Now to get over the dreaded jetlag!

Glad you had a lovely holiday Kathy and love your card with the fun ladies, they are always a winner with their drinks in hand.... and 36 cards sold, wow! When I tried to sell a few it was not very successful, and I wasn't asking that much for them either. Mind you it was prior to my stamping days so quite a while ago. Thanks for the photos, just what we all need this time of year some nice warm and sunny weather, not sure about the DIY Thank you for the shout out, I was happy I could help with the blog address. x
