Busy Doing Nothing

What another lovely day, I cannot believe this weather. I spent some time today just sitting in Yvonne's garden. We had gone for our usual Monday morning coffee and when we were on the way home Yvonne asked Sandra and I if we wanted to go and sit in the garden. Sandra had some stuff to do and I had a DT card to finish so we said no. But I came home, finished the card and decided to ignore the ironing and go back round to Yvonne's. Which was lovely.

Then I went to college to help my friend Fiona again. I was her last client for this year for her course and I had a lovely facial. Thanks go to Sandra for collecting the boys from school and looking after them for a wee while before I got back.

And tonight I've been to a Parent Council meeting and have a few things to do for that before I switch off for the night :(

Anyway, on to today's card.....

My friend at work asked me to make a birthday card for his friend. The brief he gave me was the song All The Single Ladies by Beyonce. His friend is getting married next week and her hen night was apparently a "Coyote Ugly" experience where they taught them to get up on a bar and sing! So this was the song of choice. Well, I saw today from a post on Paul's FB page that his friend loved it so I'm pretty chuffed with that :)
