Hi Shell

The weather hasn't been much better today either at this end.

The heavens opened this afternoon and I have never seen rain like it .. it was running down the road like a mini river!!!

Your cards are lovely Shell. I am sure your friend will feel much better once she receives her card filled with all your good wishes.

So .. .. on to your little saying to help you remember your wedding anniversary. Even I won't forget it now!!!

I chose to shorten the numbers to make it easier so will just be using 4.9.98

I long for (4) another ninety nine (99) ice cream - my last one was stolen and ate (8) by Charlie!!

So you now have a saying and a little picture in your mind to remind you. Do you think it will work? If not don't worry - I will remember and then you won't have to ask Nige anymore. LOL!!!

Take care.

Love Jules xx
