Rambling Rose


 Well here in the UK it's a Bank Holiday Weekend, so i'm sure the weather won't be good !!, yesterday H went to try out Canoeing, Kayaking (both things he has never done before) and Raft Building with the Cubs. Today is a rest day and tomorrow we are going to the Weald and Downland Museum for a Food Festival.

Today is the first the start of a new challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's Dies And Punches and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :
