A Night At The Opera

Happy Monday folks!  Hope we're all well today.  The Sun is shining here in Hull and even though I'm at work it certainly brightens the day!  
Hope you all had a good weekend, mine wasn't brilliant, someone had broken into our outbuilding (where my washer and dryer are) sometime this week - I'm not sure when as I only go in there to do the washing on a weekend, they took a load of drink that we stored in there (some of it had been there for a while though so for Karma I'm hoping it gave them a bad stomach!!).  I'd stocked up on wash products too....and they even took them so was a bit down yesterday.  But we went out for Tapas last night which meant the weekend didn't end as badly as it had started!  We've made it extra secure now though, once bitten and all that.
Anyway, enough of me feeling sorry for myself, my post today is for the new challenge over at
