Simon Says ,,,,,,,, Christmas in August :-)



edited to add : As some of you may know our lovely sister, Heather, is not very well at the moment after suffering a slight stroke. I am sure she would appreciate all of our prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery. If anyone would like to send her a card please email us for her address. Thank You :-)

GET WELL SOON HEATHER ,,, WE LOVE YOU !! :-) XX

Alanna said...

I was wondering if someone could tell me a city in the time zone this blog runs on? I live in Australia and always find it hard to convert time zones!! I googled "CET" time but it came up with Central European Time and wasn't the same as your clock in the side bar.

A major city within this "CET" time zone would make it easier for me to work out the time difference please!! Thanks :)

Mynnette said...

Thanks for another great challenge! :)

Mynnette said...

Alanna: I think it's supposed to say CST (Central Standard Time). A few major citis in this time zone is Wichita, KS or Oklahoma City, OK or Dallas, TX. :D Hope that helps you out!!!

Paper Squirrel said...

Just linked up...some beautiful projects out there!

Alanna said...

Thank you Mynette. I see now on the link widgit it says I have 26 hours remaining so I'll just aim for about this time tomorrow to have them up :) Thanks for your help :)
