Round Midnight at home...


Hi there!
Can you believe it!!
4 minutes before the clock strikes 12
and I turn into a pumpkin!!!

This 8 hour time difference won’t beat me though!

I’ll be back in a minute!!!

Sorry about that! wanted to post before midnight your time.

We went for a late lunch,
and then I realised that I had left it way too late for my daily blog!

Found a great restaurant though.
Bubba Gumps Shrimp Factory.
Not only was the food excellent, but the whole restaurant was clearly based on that great classic film starring Tom Hanks,
“Forrest Gump”


Bubba was the lovely black dude who was in Vietnam with Forrest.
I remember sobbing buckets when he died in the film.


But hey. The shrimp factory was super.
And the Key lime Pie was out of this world!

Welcome to America.


love & peace,

    3. Thanks girls, don't think it'll go anytime soon but trying to stay positive it's been on going, on and off for a long time. Thank you for your suggestions Sheila, will try anything. If all else fails will try a chiropractor (if that's how you pronounce it). Must try to get into crafting again, need to do a birthday card for next week. Hugs to you all xx

  21. We all love Forrest Gump in our house, a brilliant movie. Sounds like you are having fun eating American size portions and pudding while we are all at home watching our weight!

  22. Key Lime Pie is my favourite!!! Sounds like a great day. I've had one too as my Clarity order arrived this morning, so I've been playing nice with my new stencil and stamps. Have actually used my Gelli Plate for the first time. I've only had it a year!
