 Good Monday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that today finds you well and that you all had a lovely weekend. 

Today we are restricted to the pool (thanks to mother nature)!! It's currently 11am and we are all laid out by the pool, the sky is blue and there is a lovely cooling breeze.  

Now I have to apologise to our lovely Janet because I missed her Beautiful card yesterday, Paul and I are taking turns on the WiFi,  so I'm guessing Janet's card arrived after I logged out!  It makes you realise how much you take things for granted! Another thing is microwave, Lucy loves a hot chocolate but heating the milk in a pan puts her off making it, I have done it for her, although the pans they provide are really cheap and the milk sticks to them, I even tried using the net that the lemons came in as a scourer, it was ok but not great, so pan scourer is on the list!! Paul and girls are missing the coffee machine too, apparently the Cafetiere is just not the same!  

Janet's gatefold card is stunning, I love the design with those lovely hearts, the papers are really pretty too.  


  1. Hi everyone
    I love your card Janet, it’s beautiful, and a very fancy fold 😍
    Hope you enjoyed your pool day and are having a relaxing time.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  2. Your card is lovely Janet
    I hope you’re enjoying the day by the pool
    The outdoor cinema was great fun - It was the 2020 version and is practically a copy of the original
    I think I had eaten a dodgy sandwich because I was violently sick during the night and still feel a bit nauseous
    Take care everyone xx

  3. Hi everyone
    Love the card from our Janet, unusual fold. Have a good day in Marigny.
    Oh Karen, hoping you are alright. I had some problems the other day but the other way. Not nice and you do feel really off so wishing you better x
    Laying by the pool sounds soooo good Sandra. Enjoy every minute.
    Sonia,you have

    1. two lovely son's. The bride's dress was beautiful.
      Had a walk this morning and it was so nice to get around but the knees are now complaining so will see how the night goes.
      I hope that our missing friends are alright and soon be back to our little cafe at the Cotswold crafter's .
      Many hugs to you all, Maria xx 🤗

  4. Janet I love your card, perfect for a little (or even big) girl, thank you for your lovely inspiration. Hope you are enjoying your holiday.xx
    Karen hope you are feeling better after your bout of sickness. Take care xx
    Maria hope the pain in your knees is responding to your medication and you are resting.
    Ladies take care and stay safe. xxx

  5. Evening everyone, what a day, very heavy rain this morning, and this afternoon very muggy, which tends to give me a headache.

    Janet very sweet little card and a very clever fold.

    Karen do hope you are ok now after your dodgy sandwich, horrible feeling.
    Maria hope the meds ease the pain in your legs, and you manage to get some rest. I know what you are going through, I only manage to get between 3 and 4 each night..

    Not much other things today, Lilian
