Hello folks

I hope you've all had a good day today. Mine's been busy again, teaching my son - more English and Maths today as there's so much to cover! Times tables and division - what a nightmare - I'm more and more positive that he has dyscalculia so will have to sit down and read all the stuff I bought on it before Christmas and see if I can find a glimmer of hope for him.

Got a nice fire going which was a bit of a challenge since I'm quite a novice - hubby normally does that, but it's roaring away so I'm now feeling warmer. Also got the bread maker going - ciabatta this time - yum!

And eureka! I finally managed to finish a lovely little card I'd started a good two weeks ago. I love the finished result but what do you think? I've just started using some stamps for my designs and I absolutely love the beach equipment border on this design, to which I added a tiny bit of colour using ordinary pencil crayons, and it ties in beautifully with the little boy in the middle - how determined is he to get to where he's going? Gorgeous!

So, that's me for today and perhaps I'll get a bit more crafty time tomorrow, who knows!
Take care and see you soon,
love me xx
