Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Woohoo it's the weekend at last, not much planned here as you can imagine, Paul wants to get the lawns mowed and get some weeding done too, I will be limited to 'observing' I think, you have no idea how frustrating it will be for me not to join in! Never mind, it could be worse! It hardly seems possible that we are in the middle of July already, we find ourselves in the same dilemma as we did last year in that we have our holiday booked (they transferred it over from last year) I have tried to ask them for a refund on a few occasions but got nowhere, they say that there is no restrictions stoping us from going (at present) so it we decide to cancel we would lose our money, which we are both reluctant to do. However I read a news article yesterday saying that a few of the European countries are strongly advising their people not to travel to France and Spain and turkey etc. With the cases set to rise here Spain or France may reverse their decision to allow tourists from UK, we will have to watch and wait I guess. I am not too concerned about Paul and I as far as virus goes, we are both fully vaccinated, we will be in our own car for the entire journey (we even stay in our own car on the Channel tunnel) apart from overnight stop in our own cabin, when we arrive in Spain we will be in our own Mobile home, we will take our own cutlery, cups and crockery, ( I am fussy about those things anyway)! We will be spending our days either on the beach or lounging at the mobile home reading our books, we are fully self catering so we don't have to eat at restaurants, most do takeaways if we did fancy a treat. So this next few weeks will be just watching and waiting! I can't tell you how much I would love to be floating around in the sea right now, I can almost feel the weightlessness just thinking about it!!!
I have asked all of you to have a go at choosing a Challenge theme, we have had Janet's Rose challenge and Maria and Lilian picked Christmas and Red and White,
Brenda's choice is one that we haven't done since 2019, so it will be fun to do. So Brenda would like you all to make cards or projects that feature 'Animals' You all made incredible cards last time, using so many species from 🦒 giraffes to elephants, hedgehogs 🦔 to Mice, Foxes, Horses, Dogs and cats and Birds too. Don't forget that you can make Christmas cards with Reindeer or cute cats 🙀 in Santa hats! I am so excited to see what you all create.
Thank you so much Brenda for choosing this weeks Challenge theme, I will definitely have to get my thinking cap on and have a good sort through my stamps and dies!
A quick tip, if you are like me and don't have many animal themed stamps etc, have a look through some of your old magazine freebies, there is always something with an animal on!
I hope that you all have an enjoyable day in the sunshine,
Love and hugs to all of you,
