Busy busy busy . . . . . . . . . .

What a busy week I have had I turned 60 on January 6th, a new grandson arrived the same day & I retired yesterday from work after working a total of 41 years in the Nursing/Midwifery profession!!   Where has the last 41 years gone.

Baby is gorgeous and mother, baby and daddy are doing well, and Joe and I will never forget his birthday either!! 

I'm still in a bit of a whirl still so much has happened in a few days!!  It doesn't look as though it's going to slow down either next week either and tomorrow I'm out for afternoon for a colleague who retired from the same team as I on Monday.!!!

Last Saturday I went to Tracy's 50th birthday party and this is the card I made for her.

Below is a similar card that I prepared for a work shop at Long Eaton at the end of November. 

Got to go as out tonight for a birthday meal with friends as I couldn't fit it in on the 6th!!
