Candy Winner

I'm sorry this post is a little late, we got back from our holidays yesterday afternoon, and then went to a Barbecue at the Rugby Club. This morning has been spent, as predicted, washing. I hang some washing out at my mams house, just to make it looked lived in and when I got there there was a baby seagull trapped in the garden, so I've had fun and games getting that out without being attacked.

I want to take this opportunity to say 'Hello' to all of my new followers, and to say thank you for all of the lovely comments you all leave me, I really do enjoy reading each and every one. Grace had a fantastic fifth birthday, and got spoilt rotten, but that's what they're for. We went to Flamingo Land, a theme park in North Yorkshire, for her birthday treat, the weather started off absolutely awful, the rain was torrential, but it brightened up and even though we still went in our wellies we didn't need them.

We had an absolutely amazing week away at the Lakes. We stayed in a cottage a couple of miles away from Beatrix Potters house. It did rain, but not when we planned to go out, it was a perfect week. It was so good, we've actually just booked to go back next year. Here's a few pictures and then the bit you've been waiting for the winner chosen by Random Org.

Grace and me in one of the gardens at the cottage on the day we arrived, and the sunglasses weren't just for show, lol.

And the random org winner is.....
