"True Friendship"

Hello and welcome to my Blog space.
Not so nice here today, dull, misty and threatening to rain.  Such a change from yesterday.
Thank you for taking time to come visit.   If you have time please leave a little comment so I know you called.
Another busy day here at "the ranch".  
The school the boys go to have a Charity Shop running this week to raise funds.    In Coupar Angus there is an empty Shop Unit that the owner hires out weekly.  Groups hire it as a Charity Shop.  This week it is the School, I popped along this morning with some things and was roped in to helping out this afternoon.   My! Goodness! it was so busy.  What amazes me is that there is a group in the shop almost every week, they all make a fair bit money and it is all from other peoples "junk" Brings to mind the old saying "where there`s muck there`s brass"
The last time the school had the shop they raised £2,600 in a week.  We will see what this week brings.  I am in again on Friday afternoon, I volunteered for that months ago.  
Grandpa has to pick the boys up from school Friday afternoon.  Mummy and Daddy are off to a wedding in Glasgow, they will stay there overnight.  I will have to get to Tesco in the morning to stock up!!!! the boys will be staying overnight with us.
Today's card is for our friend Anne who goes into hospital on Thursday to have her operation for Breast Cancer.   The ladies Hazel and I meet on a Wednesday will all sign it and give it to Anne tomorrow.  I have also made a nice box for it to go in.
Should have got Hazel  http://hazelsbasketsofjoy.blogspot.co.uk to make the box  ....   have you seen how she has progressed at making all these different boxes.   To think that just a few weeks ago she would have been asking me to make them.  Hazel has done so well, she has always been crafty and done beautiful parceling.   She still does that, now he is making boxes and also really enjoys having her Blog.
