It's almost 2 months since I last added anything to my blog, but I think
I have a pretty good excuse reason...despite having a flu jab in April,
I 'crashed' with a dreadful lurgy that lasted many weeks, and turned
into pneumonia. Then 3 weeks ago our son and granddaughter arrived
from London for a holiday with us, returning home last weekend.

As it is the second Wednesday of the month, it is time for a new
challenge at Words 2 Craft By, where our quote this month is -
"I don't know why, but the meals we have on picnics always
taste so much nicer than the ones we have indoors" 
These words were written by Enid Blyton in one of her many
childrens' novels, Five Go Off In A Caravan.

Enid Blyton's  novels were some of my favourites when I was a child.

Quite a few years ago I won this stamp in a challenge, and I am ashamed to
admit that I have never used it...My very, very bad!! However, when I saw
our quote for this month, I knew the image could not have been more perfect.

If you would like to be in the chance to win a great prize of a $10 e-certificate
for the retailer of your choice, pop over to Words 2 Craft By, be inspired
by my teamies fab creations, then enter your own interpretation of our quote.
