Christmas in July

It has been quite a nice day here in Adelaide. I slept in this morning and got up and put a load of washing on before I had my shower. I stayed in there a bit longer than usual because silly me forgot it  the water tends to go cold when the washer is going!!!
A quick trip to the supermarket and then back home to put it all away and head off for craft. Adrian come home just before I was about to leave so I threw some more clothes in the washing machine so he could hang them out for me. I was running late after doing all that and didn't get down to my friends until about 2.20 p.m.  Still, we all had a good time and most of us are still working away on making all the branches of our beaded Christmas tree. My shoulder is still sore, so I was worse after several hours of holding my arm in more or less the same position.
Anyway, you all know me by now and realise that it is very late and I must get on and share my card and get myself off to bed.
So, here it is.
