Lighthouse Card

Only 5 more sleeps till I head off to Hull to pick up the cruise ship ... 
I have so much to do ..  not least of all getting my case out and sorting through things to take ...my least favourite job EVER! 
But one thing I will be taking is my new camera ... DH bought me a new one yesterday ... It's not an SLR ... didn't think I could cope with carrying that around ... or reading instructions ... so I got a lovely Olympus digital which I am really having fun with at the moment ... I can really see the huge difference to my old trusty Canon. I took these this morning in my garden and I haven't had to alter anything...



The lilac is really coming on ..


Pieris


You can see the sun is shining but believe me ... it's cold!

I have a card too ... using that lighthouse image once again ... my husband's friend is really experiencing a few storms of life ... not least of all hearing that his sister died suddenly whilst on holiday ... so the lighthouse seems appropriate



... Just to let him know that we are thinking of him ...

And yes, MY football team won on Saturday ... there were a few glum faces here ... good job I made them pizza!
As for the Grand National ... which I refuse to watch or bet on ... well, 2 more horses died and that always saddens me ...

Have yourselves a lovely day and I hope you'll join me tomorrow for the new challenge at CCCB
Thanks for taking the time to visit

I love the pictures from your new camera, Ros, your garden is lovely! Love the cat warming in the sun! Great news about the trip and your football team, excellent since the two men would have ganged up on you, if you had lost. Very sporting of you to make pizza. Card is really nice, love the colors and that lighthouse image. Have a wonderful time packing for your trip!
