52 { Christmas } Card Throwdown June Colour Challenge..........

Good Afternoon Readers,
Well another nice day here in Cornwall, although clouding up a bit at the mo, but still warm, well I have had an active morning today, actually rode my horse, which was great, although still loads of mites about, even though I sprayed Ace with horse fly repellent, they still seemed to annoy him, and me come to that, so we trotted most of the ride to try and avoid the damm things....... had the proverbial couple of cups of coffee on my return, and a natter, then it was time to walk the rabble, on my way home from the stables I stopped of at a local car boot, and of course picked up a few bargains........ and then came home to find hubby cutting the front hedge........ so decided to help........ quite enjoyed using the hedge trimmer, got a bit worried when hubby said I looked like a woman possessed, and quite scary, had a flashback to last week when I attacked the tree's and shrubs in the back garden with a hack saw........ hmmm maybe I should seek professional help, maybe harboring some deep dark obsessions.......... so once the hedge was a mere shadow of it's self, and hubby had talked me back in to giving him the hedge trimmer...... I came in to join in with the challenge over on 52cct.blogspot.
