  1. Morning Carole,

    I hope Spain was a little brighter and warmer that the UK.

    Please don't apologise for the lack of visits, I've been much the same since Christmas with the NHS taking over my life, well it certainly seems that way.

    A lovely card for your Hubby with such a jolly snowman.
