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 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 ??

Sandy this is gorgeous love the papers you have used. Glad you managed to give your auntie a birthday treat, but sorry she has gone downhill. Yes know what you mean about taxi drivers if I need to get a taxi home after having treatment and such I usually have to direct them as they don't know the way to our village by the back routes and try to bring us the long way round and again most of them don't have very good English so it makes the day even more stressful. Hope you get sorted with your insurance, good idea having a dash cam our car came fitted with one which was good news. Love Alison xxx

What a special book card. So glad Auntie knew you were there. She must have been delighted that you all cared so much.

Good luck with the insurance claim :-@
