I hope you all had a good Bank Holiday, ours was quiet as i wanted to do some things i've been meaning to do for a while, but we did go out on Sunday to the marina where the local lifeboat had an open day, so we had a chance to go aboard and do a quiz about water safety, whilst there we had lunch at my favourite italian 'Zizzi's'. Well today is H's last day at nursery, as he officially starts school next Monday.

Todays card is being sent to my OH's nephew who did very well in his GCSE's last week and the fabby image was sent to me by a very lovely friend, whom i was fortunate enough to meet at a crafty get together in Blackpool a couple of years ago, Evelyn and who is also a PB nutter !! I also managed to find some old scraps of a paper stack that i just love DCWV - Black & White Prints.
