Beautiful day

The weather is glorious here in B'ham and we are off to a friend's leaving barbecue any minute now. Hope to meet up with Joy, James and baby Samuel who will probably be in a new outfit as Joy was going to town on the bus to shop yesterday. Hasn't public transport changed! When I had my babies, tra...
