Afternoon Everyone,

Well its been a very changeable day today here. The rain was torrential at about 9.30 and now its sunny. The wind is awful though, mind you it got my washing almost dried!!! 
I love doing my wee Festive Challenge as I get to visit lots of blogs and see incredible makes. This last week I was at a blog and found a stamp company I had never heard of. Graciellie Designs.  The stamps are amazing!!!!

Im now off to chill out, Tom is off to his Dads so I am going to make a wee curry for dinner and grab an early night! Especially since we have an hour less in bed tonight with the clocks changing to GMT again.  (Edited!!! Silly Fibro Brain here got her Spring Forward Fall Back mixed up!! Thanks to Pat for correcting me!!! I should have remembered as when I was a Midwife I always seemed to have to work on this night with the extra hour. Never in Spring though!! Booo!!!)
