ABC Ella!

I hope your all well, those who aren't here's a huge hug ((((xxxx))))) just for you!
We had an absolute fantastic day yesterday, we nipped up to Blackpool for the airshow & boy it was fantastic the Typhoon was amazing, it had Katie squealing saying her bum was vibrating lol the noise & power that thing has AMAZING!
We also went into Madame Tussards, only really to surprise Katie with The Beatles being there.....mmmm but I didn't know there was one of Mr sex bomb himself, yeah Tom Jones was there but I'm talking about Alan Shearer, oh I cried, my knees went weak oh I was a blubbering mess & yeah Nige got a photo lol. Might put it on here if its not to bad lol!!
But Katie when she saw The Beatles she cried lots & hugged me & Nige really tight & said thank you such a sweetie & then spent the next 20 minutes walking around the Fab Four looking at them. She did notice that Macca had his shoes on & no cigarette in his hand. I have taught my daughter well lol!!
Anyhoos a fab day out, well worth the 5 minute rain shower we got caught in!
Hugs xx

Hi Shell

Sounds like you had a fabby day out. Wasn't there anyone there to make Nige's knees go weak?!?!? LOL!!!

Great card too .. .. but hopefully not needed for a while yet. I doubt any kids want to think about going back to school just yet!!

Have a great week.

Love Jules xx
