So I lasted two days before withdrawal symptoms crept under my skin and here I am with some Sweet Williams that I bought at Aldi for 1.50 SmileSmileSmile
I'm off to Locking for the weekend with a group of International Students who come to our home on Sundays for Bible Study. We have been there for about 8 years now at the invitation of the Church and all of us are hosted by a group of families who very lovingly invite the students to stay for the weekend. I know it is forecast rain for the next few days, so we will be taking Laigretto, Uno and a few other games that are easy even with very little English.
Hoping to get some good photos - Thanks for clicks and comments on Forget me not 2
See you all soon
Helen
