Oldie but a goodie ~ Have a heart

Good Morning,
Hope you are all well & it's not too windy where you are.
It's been quite bad here, we always seem to get it worst as we live on the edge of the town & Spalding is  completly flat, so it comes straight across the fields. The first year we lived here we lost about 45 roof tiles,  
 when we had the new turf layed in the back garden, we went out in the evening and when we got back all the turf had been blown into a big heap in the corner. Darren and I were running around in the darking trying to lay it back down and anchor it in place with big plant pots!
xXx
This fortnight at

HAVE A HEART!
