My card for Daniel......

My card for Daniel, this is the request from Claire (Daniels Mum)
"Daniel has Aspbergers Syndrome (which was diagnosed only 2 yrs ago). Aspergers is mild Autism where they are unable to socialise and interact socially, making everyday life quite difficult for them.Because of his condition he doesn't have birthday parties as he hasn't a great circle of friends so last year some were kind enough to send Daniel a birthday card. I saved them all and then wrapped up in a box for him to open and he absolutely loved it. I am asking if any of you would like to send Daniel a card." (check out Claire's blog for full details.)
Happy 11th birthday for the 7th November Daniel.

Magnolia Fall stamps.

Has anyone had any experience with this company, when deliveries don't arrive?? I ordered the Fall set ages ago, my credit card has been charged, but the stamps have never arrived. I have emailed them twice and received no responce?? Any suggestions???

22.10.08 UPDATE
I finally received an email, to say the stamps were dispatched 9/9/08. Have requested replacements and - no surprise - no further replies!! So I have given up!! I have been in contact with my credit card company - who were fantastically helpful and are arranging for a full refund. I will not order direct again!
Thanks for all your help and comments - I see I'm not the only one!

Coggledford Mill

We're off to Cogglesford Mill for Sunday lunch today, the weather is gorgeous and all seems right with the world.

Can you believe X Factor live shows have started - thats means it's count down to Christmas...and yes I've already started my Christmas shopping, which will come as no surprise to those who know me!!!

Hope you are all having a great weekend. {{{hugs to all}}}}
