Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I had a lovely afternoon walk around Slimbridge - The Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre just up the road from where I live - with my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver and his Mummy and Daddy whilst my DH and Jack stayed home to watch their football team get annihilated :o(
