Summer Days

Good morning all.

 Hope everyone enjoyed the lovely weather over the bank holiday. We do seem to have been blessed with some fab sunshine over the last few weeks.

I've managed to make a few cards too which is a bonus as it's a bit of a juggling act having the Grandchildren here and believe me they do take some watching, so the bank holiday has certainly helped to have some 'me time'.

Another job was sorting out the planters and tubs too (neglected for ever) now looking good with gorgeous bursts of colour. Mowed the lawns and weeded too. My.... Hubby has been busy...ha ha.
'Shall we get some solar garden lights to pop among the border, should look nice as it gets darker' says hubby. So off we went, picked and bought them and off he went to place them around.

Yep they did look nice, but I'm sure we bought six and I can only count five???
He looked under every hedge, plant, tree, shrub, he even looked around the front garden wondering if the Grandchildren had moved one...... nope.....
'We definitely bought six'  says I, so off he went for another mooch around just in case there was somewhere he hadn't looked before, while I went to get the receipt to check......

Oh .... only bought five....!!!!!

Poor man is still out there scratching his head. Me, I'm off to buy another one. I'll put it out tonight when he's gone to bed..... eeh.. those garden gnomes!!

So onto my card.

Have a beautiful day.
Hugs Sue xx
