Busy Day

Yesterday we had quite a lazy day - just felt I needed a day not running about visiting places like we had while on holiday. Made up for it today though....

Boys went to a holiday club in a local school (the High School that Craig will be going to next year, sniff) this morning and I had intended to take them to the cinema this afternoon. Yvonne and I dropped the kids off at the school and went for coffee and I mentioned the cinema so Yvonne decided that she would get the car from her hubby and come with us too so we all went to see Ice Age this afternoon. The kids all loved it, Scott wants the dvd.... already...

At 6pm I was meeting friends at the sports centre for our regular badminton game but one of them wasn't well and Craig wanted to come along and watch, however, he actually got to play with us and he wasn't half bad.

Then we came home and I collapsed in a heap! 

I did find time in the evening to call my lovely friend Cathy, so good to catch up.

So onto a card, a bit belated I know but I didn't share it with you. This is the thank you card and gift I did for Scott's teachers. He had 2! The cards were virtually identical but as one of his teachers was retiring I made her a memory book rather than a notebook. Sadly I forgot to take a photo.

Just noticed there is a pearl missing from one of the flowers, I am sure I sorted it before Scott gave it to the teacher.

I'd like to enter the card in the following challenges:
