  1. Your tag looks lovely Lilian. Well done challenging yourself and it's worked wonderfully. Glad to hear you're feeling better today.

    It's sunny here but I think we're in for rain later. Having a break as I've just scrubbed the garden chairs and table. It was backbreaking work as they'd got quite green through the winter. Barbxx
