Good morning Jenny. I thought I had got your bug yesterday, picked girls up from school to go to their Spanish lesson but had to turn back ho boy did I feel sick and such a sore head luckily got to my house in time. I seem fine this morning so it must have been the sore head that caused it. Off to visit Patricia for lunch so here's hoping it was just that. Hope you feel better soon lots of hugs. Hazel

Really lovely card Jenny. The image is so cute and the flowers are gorgeous. Your "bug" sounds like one I had this time last year but I had a dreadful cough as well. Hope it passes soon.

PS I've been to Liverpool this morning, back to work, where a colleague who had a baby 6 months ago was coming into the office to show off her baby, so I really wanted to go. It was just as if I had never retired a year last June, it was absolutely lovely to see everyone, I really enjoyed myself, but the best part was that I didn't have to do any work, that can't be bad eh ha ha !!!!
