What's That Noise?

It's nothing. It's silence.....

The boys went away to Boys' Brigade camp in Scarborough yesterday and the silence in the house is odd! We've haven't very often had the house completely to ourselves in 12 years (once I think!) - we don't have parents that the children can go and stay with and if one has been away the other one has been here so it's odd that they're away at the same time and they're away till Saturday! Eeek.

Anyhow, they've arrived safely and I'm sure they're both having a ball. Craig is off to Lightwater Valley today but I'm not sure what Scott's group are up to.

So today I wanted to share a card which is a good sentiment for this week. It's a birthday card I made for a good friend who likes tea - as much as I do!! And these wee Joy dies are perfect for this sentiment.
