I've just gone back to work today after a fortnight off. We didn't go away this time but we've done plenty of castles and beaches and things. The weather wasn't brilliant sunshine but very little rain and it was very warm so we've had picnics every day. Going back to work was a bit of a shock - I'm blooming exhaused!
A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to some of the new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps. I love these little images. They're just the right size, not muckle great big things and they always stamp perfectly. Look at this little chap looking at the teddy as if to say "there's something not quite right here." And check out those socks! These little images all tell a story - I love them. They remind me so much of when Erin, Kimberley and Jack were in the Nativity plays. It will be Wee Steven's turn soon.

That's all for now. I'm not going to post a blue card for a while. For someone who's favourite colour is green, there have been a lot of blue cards recently. The next one will be completely different colours!
Thanks for looking.
