Sympathy in Blue

Hi, how is your weekend going. We headed off down south to Victor Harbour to go to our friend's son's 21st. We arrived about 12 noon and found that it was a themed party - Western. My hubby had not told me, so we hadn't dressed up at all. The party was not starting until 2.30 onwards as a lot of Owen's friends work in the hotel industry down there and had to come in between shifts. We did eat a little something earlier as Vaughan threw a bit of meat onto the barbeque for us to keep us going until everyone arrived.  I helped Marianna out a bit making salads.  We had an enjoyable time catching up with our friends and Owen liked his card.
My friend Fran messaged me about 4 p.m. to let me know her Mum had passed away, so I rang her back and had a chat with her to make sure she was okay. I had rung her earlier in the morning to see how her Mum was and to let her know we were not going to be around for the day. 
We left Victor about 6.15 p.m.- stopped for petrol and then headed off back home. About 10 mins later I checked my bag to look at my phone and realised I didn't have it. I had left it on the little side table when I had rung Fran, so we had to turn around and go back for it as I don't know when I would have been able to get it back as the house there is their holiday house and they live in the country on a farm. LOL, not just down the road.
 My tooth is bothering me again, the one that he did root canal work on that cost me $600 so I'm not impressed, so I dosed myself with panadol and closed my eyes on the way home. I don't think I actually dropped off to sleep but I did feel marginally better when we got home about 8 p.m. I rang Fran when we got home and asked if she wanted me to come over, she said yes, so Adrian and I both went over and talked with them about her Mum and came back home again around 10 p.m.
So, it's been a pretty full on day with a sad end, Fran is coping okay at the moment, but when everyone goes home, that's when it will hit her that her Mum has really gone.
I sat down after we arrived home and made this card to give her.
