As i'm unable to give Whisper her normal hour walk round the river bank, i decided to join the health walk in my village this morning and i thoroughly enjoyed it - maybe when son goes to school in Septemenber i will do it more. Ok i'm just debating about dinner tomorrow, as OH has another jolly (corporate event) on - this time it's Cheltenham Races, so i may take son out for lunch at Zizzis - well whilst the cats away the mices need to play, don't they !!!

As there are a few Men's challenges around this week and the fact that i needed to make 1 more card for the troops in Afgahanistan to send off in April for Father's Day - it gave me an ideal opportunity, i also used some fabby papers that i bought to make men's cards.
