Well it rained last night quite hard, but it is still real muggy and sticky, the sun is trying to break through now, so a good chance to take Mollie for her stroll and go do a bit of shopping.  We had a lovely time at the beach yesterday, Mollie was in her element running around in the sea, luckily she never goes out of her depth, even went paddling myself then we had a little picnic, though Mollie was more interested in digging a moat around me and the towel then eating...lol, so the sarnies got a bit sandy.

Oh and one more thing my little blog is featured in the current '101 Lovely Craft Blogs' over at dotcomgiftshop.  It was a nice thing to see when I recieved an email from them this morning, I'd not heard of it before, I've been and looked at the list and recognised a few other blogs on there too.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Hugs
