What a Week!

I hope I find you all well?  Me, I'm not too bad thanks, bit of a sore throat but that's probably because the weather has gone from summer to winter overnight!  Not in temperature mind you but the amount of rain we've had today is crazy compared to yesterday which was sunny and hot!  You've got to love the Great British Weather, especially on a bank holiday weekend, it's always the same.....rain, rain and more rain lol!!
Apologies for not being about much this past week again, to say it's been manic is an understatement!  My poor Father-In-Law was rushed into hospital on Tuesday with a massive blood clot on his lung.  Thankfully he was diagnosed and given blood thinners before, well, I don't really want to think about that!  We think the clot may have formed whilst we were on holiday, we're blaming the kids, see what they do to you lol!  He's doing much better now thank goodness and was discharged yesterday, he's now at home to rest and recover :o))  So this week we've been juggling the kids and hospital visits (thank you Ma & Pa for helping out!).....we're all absolutely knackered and sooooo looking forward to a PJ day tomorrow!!
Onto my card ('finally!' I hear you shout lol!) and this one I made very early yesterday morning as I couldn't sleep.  I really enjoyed making it, I must've been craving a bit of 'think about something else' time!  Here's my card...

A side view...
Very girly and lots of fun!
Ok, time to take some lemsip so I'll love you and leave you.  Hope I didn't bore you with all the waffle and well done for sticking with me to the end of the post lol!  See you soon peeps,
Much love,
