Testing Downloads.

I'm trying something out. I found a tutorial on Pinterest that shows you how to 
add files to download to your blog so I thought I would give it a go.

A while ago I  was going through my  Mums box of old photos
and in amongst them I found the cards she was sent when I was born,
So I thought I would put one on here for you to see how lovely it is
 and for you to  download if you want.

Now if I've done this right you should be able to click here and 
the link will go to the file ready for you to download.

It worked when I tried it but please let me know if you try it.

And finally,
The Torch has been through Norfolk.
This is the first young runner in Aylsham, which is where we saw it,
and I found the whole experience,in Mr T's words,
very uplifting and very enjoyable.
Can't wait to go to the Olympics now.

Have a great weekend and don't get to wet.


P.S  I Don't want to take anyones thunder here so here is the link to the 
Tutorial I used to do this.


  1. Hi Gill
    Only a few minutes ago your post hit the net and here I am in Australia, enjoying your post!! How amazing.

  2. aahh how lovely that you found all those cards that one is so cute, and yes it works ;-)) Have a lovely weekend, dee x

  3. It's adorable, and yes it worked for me too! x

  4. Hi Gill, yes your download works. The torch is this way next week; I'm hoping to go and see it too. Best wishes, Pj x

  5. Download works! Tell me ... now that you are a computer whizz ... does one have to be on Facebook to get Pinterest, cos I can't seem to sign up to it any other way. Am I being especially dim, even for me?? xCathy

  6. It works!!
    Can you share how you managed to accomplish it? I'd love to share downloads!

  7. Yes, worked for me too! Wow!

    The Torch was run through Kings Lynn on Wednesday, and our Kiwi visitors saw it in Oakham....or near-abouts at the weekend. My friend is actuallu torch bearing through St IVo in Cams on Sunday I think. Go Nell!

    Cathy if you click on anyone's pinterest there is usually a thingy at the top to click and request an invite. Don't think it has anything to do with facebook....

  8. Yep, works for me too - such a beautiful design, it would look great in cross stitch. The torch isn't coming through where we live, although it did go through Basildon and Southend. A lovely idea, very motivating ... :0)

  9. That is so lovely and really great that you found it. I've kept all the 'birth-day' cards that I received too, the most special one being that with my Dad's writing in it. Keeps him close to me somehow. Have a great weekend, Gill.x
