And that's it for this week.  I sure hope you found something useful amongst this lot!

We had a lovely time yesterday with our friends.  Will be uploading my photos today and telling you all about it tomorrow.  I hurt my thumb though.  It got crushed in one of the doors of the canal boat.  There was no hooks to hold them open and when I was coming up onto the deck, I held onto the side of the door and the door flew back on my thumb and crushed it.  OUCH!
