Birthday Elephant

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.

I have been missing in action for the last couple of weeks ~ firstly my Mom came to stay for a bit and try as I might I cannot concentrate on anything sensible when she is here and also I have been filling out a rather long and tedious legal form to apply to become a 'Deputy' for my MIL who is in a care home.  Boy, were those forms involved ~ there were four separate forms each averaging about 10 pages and one of the forms required a 'Practitioner' to fill out some of the details, so I dropped the form off at MIL's GP surgery and the receptionist said there would be a fee which I expected (I have worked in hospitals and GP surgeries for many years, so this was not a surprise).  What was a surprise was when I went to collect the form on Tuesday and was handed a bill for £77.95 ~ which was the fee for exactly three pages of GP handwriting!!  Anyhoo ~ the form is in the post now and that is another of the annoying 'lotto' balls in my head dealt with for now.

On to todays share, this is a card I made for my Hubby who's birthday it was at the beginning of the month ~ he loves 'flumps' as we call them ~ so this image was perfect.

Also, check out my new watermark for my blog photos ~ whit whoo!  The old one was very plain and did not 'drift' over the image ~ so after a bit of a Google I found THIS site run by a really lovely person called Dina Kowal who designed my new watermark all for the princely sum of $5.00.


Isn't he the cutest!
