    Oh yes please, I'd love to see your mums cards. I found a beautiful Iris fold of a dancer on Pinterest yesterday but there was no pattern provided.
    Tokyo was simply awesome. They have two Disney parks and we went to both. Imagine Orlando as being 100%. These are even better! Mickey speaks Japanese though Bet you can't wait.

    Yes can't wait but wedding down at Italian Villa near tiny shoes this weekend so off to haven at Poole Harbour tomorrow where I am meeting up with my kids and their families.

    Not sure I am enjoying all the regimented planning dd is doing for holiday but a 4 year old and alot to see we will only be doing short days. Discovery Cove booked but no universal as 12 nights isn't long enough to cover everything. Heatwave seems to have subsided a bit didn't fancy 38 degrees everyday.
    Actually looking forward to going to Michaels and Lane Bryant when grandma has some me time.

    Glad you enjoyed it as on our list. Mum went years go.

Think I had 3 letters begging me to reinstate but not one phonecall. Not got round to setting mum and step dad up yet, will do though as got my eye on some bedroom furniture

    HG if you saw a nice iris fold then what mum does is prints it out and makes own template on acetate.

    I am into paint pouring at the moment. Need some better weather so I can try some larger ones.

    Tried to post this pic earlier but tinypic wasn't playing ball

    The bungalow we are renting while the work is being done on our house is literally surrounded by cats. There's this ginger one who's a right bully boy and starts on Stanley Boy all the time and really winds all the cats up. DH and I have just finished tea and he's appeared at the patio doors again, this time with a bleeding ear looking for Stan. You can see Stan asleep in the washing basket he uses as his viewing point

    DH thinks the bully boy has issues

    Evening Elite I'm another one waiting for the APG system to recognise my 10 items as went for Right Guard deo today

    Also been to docs about the excrutiating pain in my knee when standing/walking. To be referred back to specialist I would have to be referred back to Physio but as I had already done all of this last year, he is referring me instead to the weight clinic at hospital as I need to get down to under 35 BMI to have knee op and WHEN I get there, they can refer me for op. So back on proper diet again I do know that I can do it, but some days the pain or depression just gets to me too much and I don't look after myself properly and diet/healthy eating goes out of the window

    Oh poor pup, Jeremiah, must be awful to go through all of that

    It's a viscous circle that doesn't have any magic results :
