Trip and SAL

I have had a busy week Steve and I have been away for a couple of days, we went to Sheffield to see Strictly Come Dancing on tour which was excellent, we stayed overnight in case the weather was bad as we had been forecast more snow and didn't fancy travelling hone afterwards as it takes 1hr 20 min on the motorway, so we spent yesterday shopping in Meadowhall. We stayed in a Travel lodge Hotel which was excellent considering how cheap it was.

I have now finished the top half of my sampler, I completed the Zebra and started the next portion of the alphabet, I haven't done as much as I have in previous weeks but I am still on target to get it finished by the end of March.
