Tin Opening Day

So beautifully wrapped

Yesterday was open day for out tins
What lovely gifts I received from Helen and a lovely tin
Thank you Helen
I will have fun with my gifts
I did not get to open my gifts until this morning
Yesterday we woke up to howling winds. I thought it was bad here but when I went to pick up my grand daughter... OMG I could not believe how bad it was at their house
Trees down everywhere and shed roofs banging madly
It was quite scary
I took her for the day and when Lynda got home from work she found the roof of one shed on her front lawn It had smashed a gate and taken out the house power on its way
Power will hopefully be reconnected today
Upside was I got to have them here for the night
Fortunately all their animals were safe

Lovely tin contents and tin you have there Illene. We had ferocious winds here too and a lot of the sand has been washed away, the beach changes every time we have that kind of weather. Good to hear the family are all ok.
