Flower Pot

Another miserable weather day today, I had coffee with a friend, we then picked up her Mum from the Nursing Home and dropped her off at the Hairdresser's and then popped up to a craft shop for a very quick trip as my friend's Mum did not look at all well. She has quite a few health problems including a form of cancer.
While we were still out, my friend decided that she should take her Mum to the Hospital and make sure she was alright. Well she wasn't happy about doing that at all. We were all quite concerned about her, even the hairdresser. I offered to go with them for help with her as she is quite frail and also for moral support for my friend. We had to wait over an hour before they went in to see someone and then they were gone well over an hour while I waited in the Waiting room. Her Mum refused any tests so there was nothing to be done but take her back to the Nursing Home, so it was a very full day and after a quick trip to the supermarket, I didn't get home till about 5 p.m.
Hubby and son went in to meet our eldest son at the Markets and have a meal with him and I organised myself to go to final rehearsal for the concert I am in tomorrow night.I got home about 10.30 p.m. after dropping a fellow chorister home.
I decided to make a card from scratch and save the finished ones for another time.
So here it is.....
