Little Umbrella

Good morning all.

Still brrrrr - getting colder here. Not sure what I expected since we are in the middle of October lol. Would love a house somewhere hot like Australia where I can spend the winter months but finances don't quiet stretch to that hehe.

I managed to get the doctor out to have a look at James yesterday. I don't have a car anymore and there is no way your can take a sick teenager on public transport. He thought that it was a bad flu virus which can also cause sickness. His advice was - plenty of rest, fluids and paracetamol. James' school e-mailed me with things he could get on with while he's home. This is an important year as at the end he will have a lot of exams for GCSE and although he's a bright kid and got extremely good grades last year he can't afford to miss too much.

Right, today's card doesn't have an image from the Lonely Stamps Club and this is one of my favorite images EVA made for LESS IS MORE .....................



................... this is the gorgeous Little Umbrella from Mo Manning. The challenge at Mo's this week is Inspired by a song and the other night while watching the Friends episode where Ross sings to his baby daughter "I like big *censored*" I instantly thought of this image lol. James thought it would go well with Queen's "Fat buttom girls". And guess what - I am not scared of white spaces anymore :).
