Hope all's well in your world and you've found time to be creative and do whatever makes you happy. We've had a fabulous week ... just yesterday, our family met up with one of my fab CT girls and RL friend Karen (Scrapdolly) and hubby Nigel - we had a fab fun amazing day. As you're no doubt aware from the trillions of photo's I have of birds of prey, my daughter Carly is a Falconer - she's pretty damn amazing, has the knack of making all the birds love her, snuggled into her - even eagles! Paul and I know how special it is to be so close to these gorgeous creatures, many of which Carly's reared in our home from babies and we knew Karen and Nigel would feel the same... so, Carly treated us all to an incredible day of bird handling - mainly for Karen and Nigel's benefit ... they got to meet all of Carly's 'babies' and fell in love with them, just as we have done. They held and got VERY close and personal to some beautiful birds - we giggled as the length of their glove got longer as the experience went on - yep, the birds started to get bigger and bigger - and you could feel the power in their grip and weight. Carly got us all flying a beautiful owl and she demonstrated some incredible skills... then we got to wander around the private animal farm - it's hard to describe how special this was, as most of the animals were free roaming. Within seconds of entering, we were greeted and followed by a donkey - who took a particular shine to Nigel. We edged further, only to turn around to see us being followed by dozens upon dozens of ducks, geese, chickens ..... and then we met all the less-than-a-week-old baby piggies - oh so cute (I want one!). Can't speak highly enough of The Bird of Prey Centre at Wilstead ... Carlys expert knowledge, skills and ability (and gift of the gab) - we've not seen her in action before and we're incredibly proud of her... thank you Carly for making our day so very special and to Karen and Nigel for travelling up to see us =)
We all had a fabulous meal out and then back for a chat - our Disney and Florida holidays were hot topic - Karen and Nigel are just back from the mouse and we're off there soon. Karen and I messed around in Photoshop - some hilarious effects and conversations took place LOL I'll be sharing some pics on various layouts and on my 'Keeping it Simple' pages (still really loving doing these).
Heavens, some weeks I have nothing to say, then once I get started I rabbit on and on and on ... not apologising though LOL
