Bikini's & Wishing Wells in Winter?????

What a fab day out we had yesterday, we went to Cannock Chase looking for deer & we found them & they were gorgeous!! We must have walked for about 3 miles looking for them & I will admit, we had fun skipping (well hobbling in my case) & scaring Katie!! She's got a thing about snakes & the last time we were out there we saw an adder....so this time Nige got a stick & put it over his foot & started screaming...Katie proper freaked out it was soooooooooo funny!! The other thing that Nige did to scare the girls was....as they were walking under a tree he shook it so all the rain fell off..lolololol even me poor dawgy didn't like that one!! I am sufferin today tho, so not doing anything today other than maybe a bit of crafty
stuff & watching the footie!!
On to my cards for today...I will post pics of the deers tomorrow!!
