Girl Sitting on a Cloud

Hi everyone,
I'm feeling a bit down today. A close friend of mine has her Mum in a Nursing Home and she is quite ill and not expected to live much longer. It was a bit of a shock for her coming in to see her this morning and finding her unresponsive. She has been going downhill over the last few weeks, losing weight and not eating or drinking much at all. So Fran, you are in my thoughts and prayers and know that I am there if you need me.
I went to craft this afternoon and then found this out, so mostly just sat around and chatted, not feeling 100% myself, I couldn't get any interest up in colouring any images and as Jane had a new magazine I hadn't seen and I had just picked one up too, I read those and then shared them around for a couple of others to look at too.
We did go out for our regular Thursday night at the hotel with Joyce and Doug. Fran and her family came over for a meal a little bit later as the nursing home is only a couple of minutes down the road from the hotel. They were going back straight after their  meal and she has just rung me a little while ago to let me know her Mum is still hanging in there and she was going to go home to try and get some rest. It was also Fran and Kim's wedding anniversary today, so not much celebrating.
Our eldest daughter had her birthday today too. She is still working away at present so I had to send her a message on Facebook and hope she got it. Her mobile has no coverage where she is, it's fairly isolated - a tourist village in the Flinder's Ranges. I think a few of her friends were going for a short holiday there and chose to go now so they could celebrate her birthday.
I have made a card to share, so here it is.
I'm on a roll with the sketches the last few posts and this is also made using one.
