My Dad and my Birthday

Well, it looks as though I'm not having a birthday this year.
Dad has just come out of hospital and was telling me not to worry about going to see him. Different story tonight - apparently he can' t do anything for himself. Phoned my brother "You need to come up and see him" Phoned my nephew "He needs looking after". Soooo will be taken out to lunch tomorrow by my "girlfriends" and then will have to get a train up North on Friday.
Upset as DS was coming home this w/end - first time since going to Uni and I've had to tell him not to. Also with the postal strike etc. I'm not going to have cards. Petty I know at my age - but if we don't have b'days what have we got?!!"!
OH had just invited me out for a meal too!
Knickers! as my mother would have said (she didn't swear!).
Also, apologies to Christina - I did try emailing you to say I wouldn't be able to make the card class on Tuesday but it was bounced back as undeliverable - I can still only reply to your emails and not email you directly. Hopefully will see you on the 31st. for the "four letter word" LO - as it's a Christmas present I'm going to insist I need to be home for it!....but you know what families are like!

So sorry that your Dad is still so poorly Sue...and that you will have to play at being nurse for your birthday. If we cant have birthdays, that must mean double stash shopping though eh lol!
Big hugs for you and your Dad!

Sue, sorry to hear about your dad - hope he gets back on track soon. The way I see it, if you celebrate your birthday at a later date, then you can stay "younger" until then. (-: Chin up!!! I got your comment about Emily's blog. I found her page a while ago. She's very artistic and reminds me of Ngaire Bartlam.Her work has been greatly influenced by her stint overseas - but in a good way, not a bad way. It's a great blog to inspire me for a different way of scrapping. Cheers, Jules.
