The Return of the Champions League

One happy bunny here tonight.

Man Utd began the "round of 16" with a 2 - 3 win against AC Milan.
Joy unconfined as:

 a) we have three away goals 
 b) up until tonight we'd never even scored against AC Milan at the San Siro let alone won 
 c) I got to drool over Leonardo the Milan coach (I do hope the BBC sign him up for the World Cup again).

Home leg in three weeks!

And Happy Birthday to my Dad - 84 today!
Sorry Middlesbrough lost.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is the card I made for David using my trusty Bug for cutting and embossing. Simple but effective I think.
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Blog Candy Alert!!!

Sunday 21st Feb. marks the first anniversary of my blog.
To celebrate this I have some blog candy on offer (various brands incl. Club Scrap).
If you would like to be entered into the draw for this please leave a comment on this post (by Sat. 20th) and I'll get my random number generator (aka OH) to pick a winner on the day.

I was planning to spend a quiet afternoon crafting but decided to sort my albums out and put in all the loose LOs. first - bad idea! Three hours later I'm worn out and ready for a stiff drink.! But at least the albums are all in chronological order and the only loose LOs are ones for my Dad and brother.

Excellent afternoon on the football front - we won 5 - 0. Sorry Maria - I'm not gloating  - I really hope Portsmouth survive in the Premiership.
