Relax - It's Your Birthday

Good evening.
Late post for me today - been busy all day - cleaning windows (has to be done when the sun has been shining as it has - shows up every squidgilicious Oliver fingerprint lol!!!) Made 12 bread rolls and a loaf of bread as well. Did 15mins on exercise bike and 30 mins Rosemary Conley video - phew!!!!

But I also had a bit of a play in my little crafty haven and made another card for Aaron's birthday - or maybe it will be for Jamie - I'll decide later.

Still no news about the arrival of my new Grandchild - thought Rowena was having contractions yesterday but still no sign :o(
The midwife has said that they will take her in on Thursday/Friday if still no developments - so by the end of the week he or she will be here - now that's something to look forward to - isn't it :o)

Hope you had a lovely day.
Thanks for popping by to see me - I really appreciate your visit and look forward to reading any comments you may wish to leave.
