Angelique made this card for me and was getting quite worried as it took a long time to arrive from France. It was worth the wait though.
Helga B sent me this interesting card.
I sent this card to Helga F
and this one to Peggy in USA
This one shuld have gone to Helga F, but I mistakenly sent it to Hanna in Austria, having misread the list - silly of me. However Hanna likes it so that is okay.
I have received 15 lovely cards and they are all so different. Next I shall make a box to contain them all, so they can be on display.
We have had a small, or maybe large miracle happen here. I spent ages cleaning my oven - a job I absolutely detest. Then I cooked a roast in it and found the oven was smoking badly and everything was overcooked, and I needed to clean the oven again the next morning - I said a few unprintable words about that! Turned out the thermostat had given up. The oven is 19 years old and in this throwaway society I thought there would be no hope of buying a replacement. Imagine our amazement when bill went to the appliance spares shop to discover that not only was the part available, but there was one in stock!!!!
We are having the roast pork tonight that we planned to have on Australia Day and I can breathe easily about what I shall cook for my DIL's birthday dinner next week.
