Lovely day

I went on line this morning to check my emails and found one from Karen, she'd thoughtfully sent me a link to a super little freeby preview for an apllication that organises your 'to do' lists, sorry guys I think it's for Mac users only!! Thanks Karen I shall enjoy playing with this.

I then went to work for my daughter making more straps for her baby carriers and we had a great catch up chat as she's just been to Centre Parks with her children and has come home exhausted after trying all the ativities, including scuba diving!! It was so nice to enjoy each other's company and have a laugh with her and her OH, even if we were working.

When I got home the postman had been and left this wonderful post card that Carol sent me. It was a wonderful surprise RAK, thank you so much, Carol. It was one of a series that Carol made for the Calendar Girls' challenge for January. If you'd like to see the whole 13 post cards and a very impresive set just posted by Lynda then pop across to the CG blog.

To finish the day off I had a visit from my GS, Ben , who wanted to download the pics he took at the car show, Piston Heads, in Birmingham on Sunday.

Judging by the look on his face, I think he had a super boys day out with his dad, LOL.
Needless to say he took 50 shots and knew the name of every car! Funnily enough, this picture of an AC Cobra (see I was listening) was my favourite as well as his, how's that for 'Nanny synchronicity'

Hi Ben
Pleased to see that you enjoyed the show. My husband did too.
He helps with a rally team and they go all over the country even to Ireland and they did very well last year. They came third in their class.
They have a Vauxhall Astra converted to rear wheel drive and it is very fast.

What a shame ben couldn't sit in it to have his photograph taken.

Afterthought: Why don't we have semi-naked gorgeous young man advertising the sewing machines on the stands at Ally Pally???
What an unfair world :)

thanks for the software link, I've been using iGTD with varying degrees of success and I'll be very interested to see how this compares

I love seeing the calender girls postcards- they really brighten up a winter's day. Just to let you know I've also joined fibre arts/mixed media, i've got to work out how it works yet but it looks like fun.Have a good weekend.

PurpleMissus may have the right idea there! lol Ben certainly looks as tho he was enjoying himself. Can't harm his street cred either! Stylish car that Cobra.
