I come from a land down under

G'day all (sorry about the dodgy Australian - Welsh accent hee hee). It's all in aid of the birth of the little wonder that is Isla Freeman, who was born a few days ago to my cousin Paul & his partner Sarah. They emigrated to Australia about 18 months ago and as I am from a very small family - every new member is cherished :D I haven't made the card yet ( naughty me) but I will soon. We send all our love to the newest member of the clan from the Welsh valleys to sunny Bondai beech.

Hope you are all well, have a great weekend & see you Monday xx
