I love everything that you sent to me and I will use all of it too!

For a treat Jon and I went out for lunch in town today.... I had a lovely prawn salad sandwich with my latte and Jon fancied a fruit scone with his cappachino.  The sun was out so it was a nice rare little trip out.

My lovely sandwich...

Then to top the day off when I got home my parents dropped around for a chat and coffee... and my mum gave me 2 cross stitching books she found! 

This has been a WONDERFUL day.... I have smiled loads!
