Good morning everyone - well the week started out really well and then ... down came the rain .... AGAIN!  Mind you it didn't bother us 'cos we went swimming again and I managed to do a few lengths - well 3 or 4 to be precise but that was better than the couple of feet I managed last time!  It was much quieter at the lunch-time session - those 50 + peeps last time were very rowdy!  LOL - only joking!  Graham says I'll be swimming like a dolphin in no time - I don't see it meself 'cos I can't put me head under water!  Oh well I'll just have to keep trying.  I'm hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that it isn't as wet in Eskdale where our lovely friends Sue J, hubby Paul and Ollie and Woody are staying.  Keep your wellies dry Soooooz!

'Nuff of me waffling - here's my next card for the TTPH DT.  Our theme this time is 'Under Water' (very apt considering my swimming prowess - not) and we've been sponsored by Make it Crafty, 'Melusina Mermaid' here is one of their digi images - beautiful!!
