It's A Good Day....

Hi everyone, hope you all had a good bank holiday!! David and I took Mum with us to a Land Rover show at the week-end, she's always loved to come with us but it was quiet a struggle for her to get around even with the little walker we bought her.  We had a lovely picnic at lunch time, then Mum and I sat in the sunshine while David went and had another look around on his own.  I feel quiet sad as she's always loved the shows but it's a bit too much for her now.. but we had a lovely day all the same and the weather was kind to us too!

Well it's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly' and this week you have a lovely variety of options to choose from, or you can incorporate all of them if you like....
