Follow your dreams…

Hello friends! Well, this is the start of the fourth week of holidays!! I could definitely get used to this in a big  way!!

I had a lovely surprise phone call from a friend last night – it was really good to hear from her, and we had a long overdue chat! We kind of just picked up where we had left off last time! That put me in a really good mood, so quite a good way to start the week! Watched the Olympic closing ceremony too, and even had time to take a peek at the comet shower (only saw a few, but even a few shooting stars are better than none!).

Today’s card is for my cousin who turns 20 at the end of the month. He is currently in uni in South Africa, and has lots of plans for the future!
