Good Morning Everyone, Hoping you are all well and enjoying this fabulous spell of Summer weather. Isn't it hot though, no sooner out of the shower and dripping again, and I'm afraid I don't glow like a lady, I sweat like a navvy.
Alistair and the boys had a marvellous time in Iceland, and good weather too, full of tales of adventure and it was lovely to spend time with his Godson, who is just 21 and his friend. Always in company of the "old boys", so he just loved being in the company of the youngsters. However it is all catching up with him, took to his bed for three hours yesterday, mind you the heat was fierce, but he is almost 70, although the fittest man I know, there come a time when it's best to have a lie down.
I will have a busy few days from now as I am looking after my Grand Pets. That's 4 cats, 4 large tortoises, 1 small tortoise, a grass snake, a Gecko, and a Skink, and of course my favourite girl Molly the dog. Damian and Moreen have hired a motor home and are going to see the British Grand Prix( oh Ang I know you'd want to be there too). They were to take Molly, this was the reason for the motor home, but the weather is just too hot and she is a very old girl and doesn't manage the heat.
So just as well that they live only a few minutes away so it's no great problem. I have a whole list of what to do for them, all more complicated than looking after little humans, but that is their little .family. Anyway the motor home is fabulous and has given Alistair a few ideas for trips away for ourselves.
So on to my "Oldie";
Another of my favourite Christmas stamps from Papermainia. again this is a large stamp and I think it was coloured with Promarkers. I've had this stamp a few years now, amongst my stash from my first Christmas of card making.
Why not join in the fun and share your earlier creations, doesn't have to be just cards, just something handmade. It's fun to look back and see how you've improved/progressed.
All started by Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her here.
Thank you all so much for your lovely, kind comments on my last card, I do appreciate them and know it all takes time, and let's face it when the weather is so good we all need to take advantage of that. I have been trying to catch up with my visits to your blogs, but it's been a bit busy here with one thing and another, but I am slowly getting there, I have not abandoned you.
Just to end here I thought you might like to see the Mountian that our lovely fur boy is named after. We went away for the day Wedenday, sweltering heat, to Mellon Udrigal, must find out what that means, beautiful little cove up in the West Coast, but we had to pass An Teallach to get there;
Impressive or what, An Teallach means The Forge. Well over 3.000 ft so it's a munro, not climbed by me, although I've done a few back in the day, but a favourite cilmb of Hubby's.
Off to get some breakfast now, I'm finding I'm keeping the same getting up hours that I did when working, but I'm getting heaps of things done.
Take care everyone, enjoy the sun, but make sure you've got the sun factor on.
