Loving Lavender

Good morning all. I hope you are all well. I am off to work soon once I`ve taken Jack to school. He went to Stoke City`s FC Britannia Stadium with school yesterday which is only a short drive away. He got to meet some of the coaches and so he was a happy bunny.
I popped out for breakfast and then I sat and went through my boxes of cards and put them all in cello bags, it took me ages.
