Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for H he had a lovely day, going to his older group of RSPB Explorers, covered in 'I'm 8' badges, then played with his Lego Chima and Hexbugs in the afternoon,

Oooo as today is the first Sunday in 2015 (gee it always feels strange to say a different year) we have a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's 'Stencils, Masks And Embossing Folders' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :
