Those were the days!

Morning, my lovely blog buddies!
Another gorgeous day here on the Yorkshire Coast.....maybe
Summer's here at last! Today I wanted to share this fab little digi from 
Nutcrafters....it reminded me of my childhood (many years ago)
 when the Summer really was Summer! I lived in a cul-de-sac
 and we would play out all day long! Many's a time we would
 have ourselves a lemonade table and sell glasses to the Mum's 
coming home from the shops then
refill and do the same for all the Dads coming home from work!
I'm sure all the cups had bits of grass and probably a few
dead flies (eugh!!) in them but nobody minded!
Ooooh, enough reminiscing for me....makes me realise just
how fast the years are rolling by!
Rightio, off the tidy up then enjoy the garden for a while, might
even have a BBQ tonight......any excuse not to cook lol!
Have a lovely day friends, see you soon!
