wow I feel like I have got my life back

been a bit crazy lately ... sorting out Aunties funeral and stuff ... here is a photo of her a few years back collecting her OBE from the palace ... there was a big turn out by the Royal Military Police and the Red Caps ... in fact there were more of  "them" than the family but we had a grand send off one that Auntie Audrey would have been proud of ...

still lots more to do and a bungalow to sell ... but life seem to be calming down thank goodness.

went to the sincerely yours papercraft show in Portsmouth yesterday and met my dear crafty friend Jackie http://tinyrosecr.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/altenew-roses-thank-you.html had a coffee and a wander and then parted company for a little more retail therapy

wow spent much too much and just finding stuff that must have just jumped in my shopping bag ...

here are a few cards I have made recently but not had time to post ... I promise to visit your blogs real soon ... thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great week.

oh and here is a little project that I started at the papercraft show ... really enjoyed making it and actually finished it at home ... love using MDF

happy 90th birthday dear Auntie Audrey

hello there my crafty friends ... sooooo sorry I have been MIA ... wow what a time we are having ... 

Had a little party in the hospital for dear Auntie Audrey on Sunday to celebrate her 90th ... she was asleep most of the time but woke and smiled at us ... think she knew were were all there ... 

there was 17 in that little room at one time ... and boy was it hot in there  ... 
lots of balloons and banners etc ...

here is the little card/book that I made her

page 1

page 2

page 3 Auntie Audrey a few years ago in our garden

I think she was "holding on" for the party and the trouble is ... since her party two days ago she has gone rapidly downhill ... she was supposed to be being moved to a nursing home yesterday but it was decided that she is too ill to move ... we don't expect her to be with us past the end of the week and don't really think she knows where or who she is at the moment anyway ...

then we had an accident on the way home in the car ... flippen taxi driver drove straight into us on a roundabout ... he was going one way and then decided to change his mind ... oooooo now we have to have a fight with the insurance company ... not our fault but guess they will say otherwise !!
the driver was a foreign gentleman and could hardly speak english ... we have now invested in a dash cam ... bit late but better late than never I guess ...

oooooo sorry to have a big moan !! things can only get better can't they ??

not a good time at the moment !!

Our poor dear Auntie Audrey is proper poorly ... she is in St Richards Hospital in Chichester at the moment ... and has been told (but not sure she is taking it in) that she is terminal stage 4 ... which basically means she may not be with us for much longer ...

auntie audrey a few years ago

It will be her 90 birthday on Sunday and we have planned a big family party ... not sure how this is going to work ... the hospital have told us she may be able to get home for the day ... but as she cannot walk or support herself in bed not sure at all about it ... have got to have a talk with the ward and also patient transport to see if it is safe ...

so keep your fingers crossed for us please ...

also my dear friend has just lost her brother ... they were very close ... so have made her a little card

thank you for visiting ... and hope you are all having a better time than me lol
