Two planes landed in England today, one brought back a group of overpaid,
underachieving footballers. the other brought back seven coffins, each
with the union jack draped over them, footballers play for our country,
soldiers FIGHT for our country, footballers give ninety minutes. ...Soldiers give their lives I know who I respect ... R.I.P our boys.

Well Easter is now upon us, so here's wishing you a lovely Easter weekend whatever you are doing.
Sorry I haven't updated my blog for a little while, but I have been unwell and had no inspiration at all.
I did however win some blog candy from Jude @ Dragonflycrafts here thanks Jude, looking forward to receiving my goodies :)
Need some help from all you lovely bloggers out there I've been trying to upload some of your lovely blogs to my blog list, but keep getting the message 'error on page' whenever I try, it's a nightmare...can anyone advise please.
Well it's been a beautiful day here in Norfolk, so much so I actually did some gardening, cutting out the dead from some bushes and cutting back others.
The garden is looking tidy, but the puppies have dug up some of my bulbs...naughty pups. I guess that might be the way of things for a little while!
I've received my blog candy goodies from larkygirl, so will get around to taking a picture & load it up soon.
I'm also getting fed up with not being able to 'follow' some blogs or add them to my site because of 'technical' blips...pop up's even through my 'pop up' thingy is turned off, & error on page...it's driving me potty HELP.......................................!
Hi everyone, I am one happy little bunny today, I just found out that I have won some blog candy from Larkygirl here thanks Tracey ((hug))
I'm soooo excited I don't remember ever winning anything before, can't wait for postie to deliver :)
It's a beautiful sunny day here in Norfolk and I have just come back from a lovely country side walk with the puppies, can see Spring is settling in the Snowdrops look beautiful and brought a smile to my face and can now see the daffodils popping up, won't be that long before the clocks go forward, long hot sunny days and warm evenings I hope.
Well it's also Mothers day, so here's wishing all you Mum's out there a wonderful day.
I had a lovely evening at the WI on Wednesday, we were hosting an event for visiting WI groups, our speaker was a retired policeman who protected the Royal family, I can't remember the last time I laughed so much, the funny stories he told were amazing, we could have listened to him all evening.
The food laid on by WI members was just great, they remebered they had a vegatarian amongst them this time lol
The flower arrangement went down well everyone from my group loved it, and I over heard some comments from the visiting groups one of them being "you can tell a professional arranged that" to which I quitely smiled and went on my merry way :)
The flower arrangement was donated to the the treasurer of one of the other groups as she is seriously ill, I do hope it put a smile on her face when she received it.
All in all a great evening
I spent most of yesterday buying, conditioning and arranging flowers, I'm a member of the WI and we are hosting an event this evening where various members of other WI's will be visiting, other members of my group are sorting out the food etc; I'm not into baking etc;
So my talents were brought into call as a florist....
Here's a piccie
I hope they like it, it took me long enough to do
Blessings Jay x
Well this is the first entry to my blog, so forgive me if it seems a bit topsy turvy, as I really haven't got a clue what I am doing.
I've just had a lovely relaxing weekend with my daughter who has visited from Oxford, so obviously I don't get to see her that often but it's been really great, she's been showing me all sorts of unphathomable is there such a word things to do with blogging, isn't techonology wonderful ~ sarcastic note appearing from nowhere lol.
I am hoping to add photo's of my cards, atc's and anything else that takes my fancy as I go along my merry way, so here's to a new experience and I hope you will enjoy and join me along my new paths journey.
Here's a few cards I made earlier lol...I've always wanted to say that :)
Righty I'm off now to look at other blogs to see what I should really be doing...
Hello everyone, I'm Jay & live in beautiful Norfolk.
I am new to blogging so have no idea really what I am doing ~ so at the moment, it's mostly trial & error :)
My daughter has encouraged me to do this...I think she think's it will keep me out of mischief lol
