How about some heatstroke?.....

.....well not literally - Good morning all

Hope things are heating up where you are - its been a whole lot better here for the last week or so. Theres definitely signs of spring in the air - and it makes everything so much better - can't wait until we can go outside with no coat and I can finally put my boots away (though I have to confess that in winter I love my boots - I've got about a dozen pairs - something for all occasions - though this year my full length aviator style Ugg boots are the favourite - so toasty!) 

I'm a bit late with my post this morning mainly because I slept in and haven't caught up with myself yet  But I'm also multi tasking as I write this -l one hand typing this while the other hand is building cars and little men with Duplo - but to my grandson Jacob I'm the champion Duplo builder - so I just have to spread my talents around!!

Anyway back to this challenge 

and our lovely Shirley -who is shivering and shaking up there in Canada 
decided she could do with seeing something warm on your cards
