  4. Hi Clare, I agree, the finished projects look fab and I'm sure everyone had the best time. My weekend went well too. I'm pleased to say my brother and sister and other halves made it safely to us here in Yorkshire from the South of England just to have lunch on Saturday to celebrate my 70th birthday tomorrow and like you a great day was had by all. Take care.
