Firstly a very warm welcome to my new followers ~ welcome on board!
How is everyone coping in this heatwave? I love this weather, but it is a little restrictive with the dogs, no nice long walks ~ they start panting just going 'round the block'. I have ordered a doggie paddling pool for them, so that is sure to end this current period of nice weather ~ lol.
July has been a busy month here, I have had two extra dogs Ella & Phoebe Beardies here for a week while their Mom & Dad went on holiday and at the same time my Dad and Stepmom came for an extended weekend visit. The hot water system packed up for a second time, necessitating a visit from our Plumber to fix it and now the extractor fan in the bathroom has decided to go part time and only works 50% of the time you switch it on. We have had so many things break down or need fixing this year (the worst by far being Sorrell's little incident ~ see THIS post for details) ~ I have a feeling we will be glad to toast a fond farewell to 2013 at the end of this year.
Enough of all that, on to todays share which is a Birthday card for someone who keeps chickens.
I love Penny Black stamps and have more than I care to mention ~ doesn't stop me buying more though!
