Better late than never, Fathers Day Card


What a weekend, its been a busy one for us and the weather for once has been lovely, hot but already today we have had rain and forecasted thunderstorms have not yet arrived.

With Glastonbury finishing today and everyone heading home, the roads are now busy, It was another mud bath and it rained and rained, but yesterday the sun came out and then they fried in the hot sun. The site is as big as the city of Bath with 170,000 people all living in tents or for the very rich posh accommodation yes posh tents, or you could even have a wigwam, not me sorry I want to bit more than a tent. There will not be one next year as Mr Eavis wants to let the land rest, what a lot of visitors don't realise it is a working farm and until a few weeks before they arrive the fields have four legged residents of cows.

Everything seems to be going wrong at the moment we had a quite day in Cheese and Grain on Saturday, Vernon again did my craft table I am only allowed to sit and do technical!
When I sent Vernon's Dad his card I forgot to take a picture of it, we went up to see him yesterday and here's the pictures of his card. The image is a shaped card from the Joanne Sheen CD The Royal Horticultural Society Collection CD, its a lovely CD and has some beautiful images of flowers and shaped cards. I put a few garden tools in inside, along with curtains and some acetate for a window. I did add a key hang up for the shed to be locked up. There was not much room to add too much, but he liked his card and said it was unusual. Its difficult to find different things every time. I also used this card for Vernon's best friend whose birthday was at the beginning of June.

I have now got my date for my op, and I had my pre-op assessment last Friday, I will let you know nearer the time when it is. The mole scar had its stitches out last Thursday but has now opened up and now they are having to treat it with a seaweed type of dressing, I hope it is healed by the time we go on holiday this weekend and will be OK when I come back and have my op. I have treated myself to a new dressing gown and slippers so I am sort of ready. We have are doubts are the moment but I will let you know more as the week goes on. Life just getting a bit much at the moment.

Well that's it for today, I hope you are keeping well and until we meet again take care
