Mother's Day and Towers!!

Happy Mother's Day to all you 'Mummy's' out there, especially to my Mum!!. So far my weekend has been lovely, we went to Solihull yesterday to do a little light shopping were my lovely hubby bought me a jumper from Republic as a Mother's Day treat. I also had some Birthday money left over so I treated myself to a nice shirt that I can wear in the Spring time (hopefully it won't be to much longer).

This morning I was treated to breakfast in bed, I received two lovely cards from Charlotte, one she had made from school and the other that Daddy had helped to pick. Les knows that I'm not really a flowery person (they die far to quickly for my liking) so he got me some Creme eggs, and an Easter egg without the packaging. Perfect. I just love to crack into an Easter egg and I think it tastes different some how, yeah I know I'm strange. :) After breakie we went over to Broadway tower we haven't been there for about 18 months and it's just nice to have a wander and to see the Vale of Evesham below us. The views are amazing.

The Tower!

I took this photo through the gate, looks like it has a frame round it, love it.

Wales is in the distance.

Me and my girly.

I have managed to complete my weekly challenge for the Crafty Magpies again. This week you had to use some old stash (mine was from over a year ago and it was scraps of paper literally), use fabric, and to make an embellishment. This photo I took nearly 9 years ago, it was the first trip Les and I went on as a couple!. If you click on the layout you will be able to see the Effel tower in the background. The light was just right for this photo and I still love to look at it, in actual fact I have blown it up and a copy now hangs in my dinning room. I think my Mum has a copy in her bedroom too.

My hand made flowers, very shabby not much chic to them!!. lol. Check out Beki Norman's blog as she creates the most gorgeous roses.

Anyway I'd better start to think about dinner.
Thanks for leaving me messages they really are appreciated.
