What a week!

Good morning to all you lovely crafters, we have a little sunshine this morning but it feels quite chilly I definitely think summer has passed us by.
It was my 24th Wedding Anniversary on Monday. Not that anyone would have noticed, no cards no flowers, no mention, He's so romantic my husband... not! So I won't expect great things next year.
Then I had both my daughters poorly this week. My eldest had a monster cold and was sent home from work and it now seems to have developed into a chest infection. She is a Health Carer and works with the elderly and it's quite hard work on her ward as once in hospital the older patients seem to think they don't need to help themselves as the nurses do it all for them,... mmm, oh to be old! Well after one complained she was killing her with her germs they sent her home so Mrs. X it seems could look after herself.
My youngest has been having quite a lot of pain in her chest and stomach and we ended up in A & E having various blood tests and x-rays and as she is Diabetic and Coeliac we are never sure if things are related and after 4hrs we are still not sure what is going on, her red blood cells are enlarged so needs to be followed up on but other than waiting for other results its paracetamols, which don't really take away the pain so it's a waiting game.
Kids, who'd av em', as my mum use to say, (times like this I really miss her)
Well it's another week at Totally Papercrafts and this week it's hosted by the lovely Lisa and this week she has a Sketch for you.
