Happy and Sad.

Hi Guys, hope you are all well.
Yesterday my baby was 20, it sure doesn't feel like 20yrs ago, how time flies by. I remember being in the labour room and MDH was watching the Grand National on the TV in the room and helping himself to gas and air........ It was the same year there was the false start and all the horses were disqualified!!! comes in handy for a pub quiz eh.
Ended up with a section after many hours, that was a non starter too.!!!
I've enjoyed every minute of being her mum.
And today I'm going to my friend's mum's funeral. A sad occasion. I'm so glad it wasn't yesterday.
Today is the start of a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and it's the turn of yours truly to pick the theme so I chose
'Birthday Girl In Pink'
I wonder why?
We have three fab sponsors this week so get those cards entered.
