Bearing Flowers

Hi,

Gee what a scorcher of a weekend, I hope you all enjoyed it - Alan and I had an amazing time on Saturday night, when we went to see Kerry Ellis, who is simply an amazing singer and the added bonus was that Brian May of Queen was in the audience and joined Kerry for the final song, which for a small town where I live was simply WOW.

I made today's card for the receptionist at Harrison's school, who is leaving later on this month and she has been really helpful and understanding, with us living 30 mins away from the school.

Daddy's Shoes

Hi,

I hope you all had a lovely Easter - besides seeing 'Cinderella' at the Mayflower theatre on Saturday, ours was quiet (something to do with the weather, it rained most of the time !!). We are now nearly through the first week of H's Easter holidays - he did a Lego fun afternoon, Wednesday, yesterday was a Peter Rabbit trail and today he has gone on an adventure day with his bike and it's my birthday today also, so it will be lovely to just chill out with my dog Clio.

I made today's card for my other half Alan, whose Birthday was on Tuesday.
