Tilda's In Havana - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Would you believe after almost 25 years of marriage I have just discovered my husband is a con man! I was trying to decide what to cremate for dinner & I really fancied some chips from the chip shop as I can't remember the last time I had chippy food, so I text hubby & asked him if he could please pick me up some chips on his way home from work & he replied "of course babe, that will be 20 quid, do you want fish as well?" I declined his kind offer with a "not at your prices mate" god knows what he would have charged me for fish lol.

The sun is with us again today :) It's been so beautiful & hot & sunny here for days on end but I think our Dude (dog) will be a whole lot happier when it cools down a little, he really doesn't like the heat so I bought another fan which we've put on the floor for him & he lays right in front of it & seems to thoroughly enjoy having it blowing in his face, aww.

Today is new challenge day at
