This week's Pink Saturday GiveAway winner is Char from Someplace In Thyme. Congratulations, I'll be by your blog shortly with the news. I'm late doing the draw today because domesticity got in the way!
With a slight link to the previous post, yours truly will be happily suffering from the disease that is known as "Death by ER: The Box Set" for the next few months.

However, half way there, DH decided that he didn't want to go to the park and suggested stopping for coffee instead. We chose to sit at a table outside the coffee shop, but under the canopy, … Continue reading Cafe Society
It's that time of the week again: Pink Saturday. Thanks go again to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting and organising what must be becoming an enormous task!
