Here is the Hot Pad or Kitchen Mat I sent my swap partner Natasha in Canada.  This is part of the 'Let's Exchange' swap that Cheryll organised.  She hold some great swaps so be sure to pop over to her site and join up in a swap.  It's fun!  
Sandy also has awarded me the Versitile Blogger Award.

  So Thankyou to Sandy for this award.  Please be sure to pop over and visit Sandy and say Hi! 

Now, for the 7 things you might not know about me....

4. I backpacked around Europe for 3 months with my husband before we got married.
5. I have flown a small plane (but decided not to pursue getting my piolots licence - although I did clock up 10 hours flying time - and it was heaps of fun!
