Hi ya, just catching up with blogs - am so sorry I missed wishing you a Happy Brirthday on your birthday. Wrist slapped for being a bad blogger person. Sounds like you had a nice day. So sorry to hear about your leaky loo - water leaks are dreadful, water gets blooming everywhere and then it's such a job to clean up. Know that to our cost when we were renovating our house! Great card as well, as always. Love the image, really sweet. Sarah
