Back from Brussels to another birthday card

Another quick post from me today as DH and I have just got back from a weekend break in Brussels.

It's been a wonderful short break and much needed after the exams (for both of us). We went by Eurostar so there was no worrying about volcano ash clouds and I was able to bury my nose in a thriller for most of the journey - bliss. Val McDermid's latest Tony Hill book - Fever of the Bone. I always think of Robson Green when I read this character now and you get a bit more back story about his Mum and Dad in this book.

While in Brussels we went to the Atomium and we even took a couple of photos with us in them for a change lol, so that I can scrapbook them. We spent quite a bit of time in the Grand Place enjoying the local beer (well, when in Brussels ...) and people watching. I even spoiled DH by letting him watch some sport (there's this football thing on at the moment?). Of course we also had to buy some chocolates and we got them in the shape of the Mannequin Pis (the little peeing boy statue that Brussels is also famous for).

We got back home this evening to find a belated birthday card from my friend Dawn:


Thanks Dawn - love it, I can just imagine those bags filled with our crafting goodies, heehee.

Ok that's all for now, I promise to have some of my own crafting to show you next time I post :-)
