16 August 2010


I woke up this morning feeling really good, still achy but nowhere near as bad as I have been yippee....I think it helped that we went to bed at 8.30 last night & as soon as my head hit that pillow I was asleep, & didn't wake up until Nige went to work at 5.15 lolol so that might have something to do with me feeling so good....Yesterday we went for a drive out to Llangollen but couldn't find anywhere to park?????? it was silly, so we drove back to Ellsmere & had a walk around the mere it was very beautiful & I saw a cormarant (I absolutely hate birds just HATE them, but I think theres something very mystical about a comarant so I loves um lol!!)

First up to day is my DT card for 'The Crazy'  where ths week the challenge is all about the lurve, could be wedding, anniversary or just a romantic card for your other half to let them know you loves um lol.
