 How much longer can this heat go on ???? It is far too hot for me and l am keeping in the shade of a cool room in the house, with minimum clothing. On thursday out of curiosity l put a thermometer in the conservatory, all the doors and windows had been open all day and it rocketed to 46 degrees - far too hot. We should not complain as it was only a few months ago we were coming out of a very long cold winter.
Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

I started a new job 5 weeks ago in a well known store where 'Every Little Helps',
working just 2 shifts a week 4pm-12.30am which fits in perfectly with helping out with the grandchildren. The last 2 weeks l have done full time hours to help cover holidays/sickness which has been quite tiring, one of the lovely young managers is leaving to do a less stressful job in a garden centre.......my dream job. I hope she likes this card l have made for her.

We have had scorching weather up here, in fact it has been too hot to be outside, even the house got too hot - on thursday morning l had to go out and could not lock the conservatory as it had expanded, just as well it is quiet round here. Even the candles melted to liquid.
School is now out for summer, yippee, off pick up duty so a good chance to catch up with other things:)

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x
