Another week flies by

But I am getting there with the house, I had my carpet laid late on Saturday (7.30 pm) after going to the shop and having a BIG row in front of all their customers. They had not come at 12pm so I went to see why..... THEY ONLY BOOKED IT IN FOR NEXT WEEK!... did I laugh !! all my furniture outside in the rain, covered with a sheet... Mum (96) sitting on dining chair all day in the only space in the dining room.....Well, it looks nice now, just need the curtains to arrive.
Aunty Sue is doing well now and hoping to come out of hospital early this week, It will be lovely to see her home after five weeks....... hope she will soon be strong enough to make her Christmas cards lol
Today's card is for her Son Chris....
