Hubby Got Sooooooooo Excited lol....

Well, Nige finished work early yesterday,  & as most of you know the girls get home about 2pm from school (they start at 8.15) so we decided to go for a walk....we ended up at the local JCB factory lol...they have got the most fantastic lake with so many different species of birds. Which keeps Nige & Katie happy, me, Danni and Charlie were just happy being out & about (I managed to walk all the way around without Sammy (mobility scooter) was really proud of myself..lol).
It must of taken us about 3 hours to walk (hobble) around this lake (its not that big) but oh the babies we saw sooooooooooo cute. Will post pics of them tomorrow, but today I thought I would show you this little beauty. I still don't know how Nige spotted him...but he was worth all the aching today and boy do I ache...my own stoopid fault for 'trying' to play footie with the girls lol

I have never seen Nige get soooooooo excited over a bird, well the feathered kind anyway lol. For those that aren't sure he is a Little Owl and a very beautiful one.

On to todays card, my friend Hazel (Dido) her eldest son is 13 at the weekend so decided to make him a card...ermmmmmmmmmmm its Niges birthday tomorrow & I still haven't made a card oopppss lol never mind I'm sure I will get one done at some point today.

I wasn't sure what to do, but I remember Hazel mentioning something about bowls & golf ....
He is a sweetie, really enjoyed colouring him in..
