Life is Short

Hi everyone, well I had a doozy of a headache today. Not sure why. Sometimes I get them when there is a north wind on a fine day, Today was a bit like that. I don't like to take a lot of medication, so by the time I do it is really bad and the tablets only just take the edge off, leaving me feeling very worn out.
I did go to craft in the afternoon and did a bit of image colouring.
We had tea out with our youngest son and his girlfriend and then I had choir. My headache is gone, but am still feeling a bit drained.
Oh well, I'm sure after a good night's sleep I will feel much better. I have the two youngest grandchildren tomorrow.
So here is my card for today and then I'm off to bed.

Purple cardstock from stash for the basecard
