It was on off 120 (oops yeah I got 120 sheets) sheets for £10 so I got turquoise & then a mix of other colours....so yeah had a fab time & Mom got some material & other bits & pieces for her sewing. So we both had a great day out & Nige had a dry walk around Middleton Lake looking at his birdies so all were smiling come the end of the day xx
