the police are still being aware though which is good but my heart really does go out to all of you who have been affected, i feel ashamed to be british at the  moment.

I am safe where I am (in the highlands) but my home town of Nottingham (and 5 Police stations were firebombed last night) :(

I still have a lot of friends on the job and where I used to work, so it was very worrying.

Anyway, your card made me smile! :) Love the pearls with the pearly card and the colouring on the flowers is just lush!
