  9. A lovely card Sandra - and a delightful LOTV image of course! They always make me smile - it's such a shame LOTV are pulling back more and more into just selling digital stuff. I loved their art pads etc. It's all down to overheads I suspect, sigh.

    I expect you're nicely settled into your home now (I hesitate to call it new home as in many ways it must have been such a comfort to move back).

    Have a lovely Easter my little friend - no doubt you'll be having fun with the kiddies.
