Sketch #19 at Sketch n Stash - Option Pearls & Swirls

Good morning.
Hope you had a lovely weekend.
I certainly did :o)
On Saturday morning we had a lovely stroll around Slimbridge Wetlands with Oliver feeding the ducks, geese and swans. Then on Saturday evening John, Jack and I went to Bristol Hippodrome to see Thriller Live - wow that was fantastic - loved it :o)
Sunday was spent getting H/W done and then watching Jack playing football - sadly his team lost this match 2-1 but it was a really good game - they all played well and anyone could have won.
Then of course it was catch up on Strictly and X Factor whilst cooking dinner - so a pretty lazy afternoon/evening :o)

So it's the start of a new week and the start of a new challenge over at
