Hello & welcome

to a very happy Shell today, I don't care about aching, I don't care about housework, today nothing matters not even the rain....as yesterday I saw Newcastle United thrash Aston Villa 6 - 0 so I is one very, very, very happy bunnie...also my darling hubby is home tonight, he only went away yesterday afternoon, but I ain't half missed him. I need a cuddle off him lol also didn't sleep very well at all, as it was my first night without Nige in our new home, so I spent most of the night going 'what was that?' lol but its morning & I survived...

Hi Shell

Well done on surviving your first night in the big bed without Nige .. .. new houses take a lot of getting used to.

At least you had the excitement of the football win!!

Loving your creations - gorgeous flowers and great colour choices.
