Holidays, Ironing, Good News, and Candy!!!!!!

Hello, and happy Sunday lovely bloggers.  This is just a short Post to share a few snippets with you!
Snippet # 1 -  I won't be around for the next 3 weeks, as hubby and I are going on holiday - yayyy!  I will miss you all.  
As Hubby is the main Carer for his 101 year old Father, it will be a huge relief for both of us to have some stress-free time together. Of course, his Father will be well cared for in our absence.
Snippet #2 - I have spent 3 hours today ironing clothing for the hols. - do we really need 3 million T.Shirts? mmmmmmmm!
Snippet #3 - Some really Brilliant News - I have been invited to join the very talented Design Team at  FOR YOUR INSPIRATION, and my first DT post will be on March 1st.  
Do take a peek at the FYI challenge blog. - we would love you to join in the fun.
Snippet #4 - When I return from my hols, (give me a day or 3!), I will be offering some Celebration Followers Candy, so please  pop by, the first week in March.
My card today is just for you - my followers and visitors, to send some love, and let you know how much I appreciate your wonderful comments and friendship. You don't even have to leave a comment!
I will pop this into Di's Snippets Challenge
Have a great time whilst I'm away - missing you already ~
