Good Morning Ladies,
Lucy and I stopped on the way back from collecting our prescriptions to take some photos of the flooded Thames, the road over the bridge was barely passable this morning as the water from fields on both sides of the road has merged into one big river, the river is flowing as far as the eye can see in both directions, the flood water in the fields is around 5ft deep and you could see the current flowing across the road.
The photos show looking from the bridge up past the Red Lion towards Kempsford, I have zoomed it in on second photo so that you can see the Lifebouy thats fixed to the tree, beside a table in the pub garden, there is usually about 5ft of grass between the tree where the Lifebouy is to the river, which is only usually about 2ft deep.
The last photo is looking towards Swindon, you can see how the river Thames has flooded so many fields that you can no longer see land in the distance. Our roads where that bad that Soph turned back from her journey to Uni as the floodwater on one road was actually coming in through her car door, she called me asking what to do I just said that if you don't feel safe turn back, she is experienced enough to drive through deep flood water. Can you imagine how terrible it would be if we had a hard freeze now!!
We are just so lucky that it doesn't reach our home, my heart really does go out to those poor families that have lost everything once again, it must be bloody soul destroying.
Michele has shared two of her recent cards with us today.
The first card is just beautiful and very recognisable from the 'House of Zander' cdrom, I'm not sure if they have changed their name to Dolly Dimples as these designs were definitely on the 'Dolly Dimples ' stand at Stamperama. I love the shape of that background piece Michele, your layout is lovely too.
Michele's second card is made using images from Ella's Design new cd rom called "Word at Play", I will add the images of it below .
The dog on your card has so much Character, I love the font you have used for the sentiments, its like an old typewriter or those Dymo machines that you print labels with.
Thank you so much for two lovely cards Michele XXX
Nothing much happening here today, girls are both out at Work/Uni, Pat is in Colchester, so no visit this week, really hoping to see Sue on Wednesday so that we can play with our new craft goodies that we bought at Stamperama.
Have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
