Eye To Eye!

If only he'd wash his neck, I'd wring it - John Sparrow
Welcome to March 🌸
I have been so busy in March..🐝
As part of my Leap Year Birthday celebrations...
We saw Rick Astley in concert..↓↓
With Belinda Carlisle in support↓↓
We stopped in a hotel afterwards.
Pity we didn't get to stop in this room↓↓ 
Studley Stitchers did a great Pillar Box Topper↓↓
The bad news of the month was:
Hubby's vision was getting worst.
(I won't go into detail, it will make you wince)
He has to give up driving,
He is working from home.
Hopefully he will have to have the operation in late May/June.
He might have to have another operation on the good eye, as the vision is going on that one too :(
 I had a lovely Mother's Day..↓↓
We visited the NEC to look around the Craft Fair↓↓
I had lots of Easter eggs off the children before I broke up for the Easter Holidays ↓
I have been baking and helping out at the Warm Hubs this month. The Easter one I made the Rice Krispie Chocolate Treats.
 I supplied the pink rabbit.
(It didn't need batteries!)
Of course, I had to have a good egg for Easter...↓
Hopefully I will get the blog updated soon....🫰
