Sorry you're feeling rubbish!

Hello to all my Friends and Visitors and welcome to my wee space of Blogland. I do love that you visit and comment and appreciate your very valuable time.

Well can you believe it's June and no sign of Summer, in fact there wasn't all that much Spring. It's dull and cold here, and I've got one eye on the window as I type this so that I can rush out and get the washing in if the rain comes on.

Both Alistair and I have been hit by another bug, much like the one at the end of our holiday, we seem to have delicate digestive systems. I was in bed all day Saturday and now it's Alistair's turn. It really annoys me as it's such a waste of a day, hopefully, we'll get over it soon.

I have a card made for a friend who has not been tip top recently;
Now what would we do without LOTV Art Pads when we need a quick card, Embossalicious EB folder, SB Dies and LC sentiment.

Fortunately, my friend is on the mend.

Thank you all for the kind comments on my last card. I hope you are all keeping well, but sending kind thoughts out to those who are not feeling well.

It's quite a sad day for us in the Highlands and Charles Kennedy has died today, for those who don't know he has been the MP for Skye and Locharbor for many years and I believe one of the few politicians who had integrity and cared about his constituents. He will be sadly missed.

So that's me for today, happy crafting and see you soon,

Its a gorgeous card and cheered me up no end so I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
So sorry you and Alastair have been unwell again. You need a good curry to sort it out (no pun intended lol!)
Very sad about Charles Kennedy. He always came across as a genuine guy.
