We are just back from a short break in Prague - a fabulous city, the locals and visitors are all so lovely. We watched with great interest the recent flooding issues in central Europe and were worried whether we should travel or not on Monday. The Mayor in Prague has declared a national emergency and the foreign office advised essential travel only..............but no directive from our travel operators or airline.................so we went......and are so glad that we did. Our thoughts are with all those affected by the floods which are still on going.
Anyhow whilst away another great stamp set was released from Little Claire and here are my couple of pics. One may / may not have been included in the project sheets that went out to all members, I provided the instructions but the opportunity I had to write them up may have been too late for inclusion..................so I thought I'd add them onto here as well.
