What a day xxx

hi all

This will just be a really quick post tonight as I'm so tired, need a shower, jammies and bed! But I guess should explain why and that might take a while lol!

So after my wee post last night, we took the dog out for a last night wee walk around the block as normal but got talking to our neighbour! Ended up getting back in the house just after 10.30! Put Tillie to bed then hubby went for shower so I decide to go to bed early, paint my nails! Just as I was starting the first nail the phone went

My friend Patricia on the phone

Water broke

Me rushing like headless chicken looking for shoes and my over night bag!

Made it top hers in my jammies, big boots, rain jacket and hat! I must have looked a right sight lol!

So off she went with her hubby to hospital and left me to take care of her little boy, Dillon who was still in bed! Hubby stayed with me and said he would wait till she txt to let me know what was happening! We were both sitting on the couch and woke up at 2am with her hubby coming back in!

She had to stay in as blood pressure was sky high but no contractions and baby doing fine! We went home saying we would be back at 8 to let him go off to hospital.

No sleep for me as every time a tiny noise I thought the phone was going lol!

Back we went to my friends this morning and let her hubby go off to the hospital! That left me and a 3 year old with lots of fun things to do! Firstly we made lots of marbled paper using a wee bit more ink than we should lol! Then lots of colouring, duplio making houses, train track building, listening to Christmas music and watching Tractor Tom! (by the way what is Trator Tom??) My hubby came down just before 12 to help with lunch!

After lunch we did more duplio, some painting pictures, more building, jigsaws then he did lots of bed jumping which I felt I was just too big too do tho my wee friend said I wasn't and mummy wouldn't know lol!! Just as we were getting juice his Grandparents appeared after driving for 3 hrs to take care of him!

Just as we were leaving Patricia texted to say she would get out as soon as blood pressure came down but still no baby!! So went off heading toward my Mums!

My Mum had another operation on Friday to resolve the problems she was still having, it didn't go to plan but shes fine now and thats ALL THAT MATTER! So a wee visit to hers with cake and to make her laugh about my lacking knowledge of babies before letting her sleep! So we popped off at 4 to visit my wee granny too for bowl of my Granpas yummy soup! ( the best homemade soup in the world, its never quite the same tho lol and even can taste like curry on the odd occassion lol)

Then eventually we came back home, sorted put the dog and sat down!
Patricia texted agin to say she was home and Dillon wouldn't stop talking about our fun day! And that she was going back in to hospital for baby to come tomorrow!

So thats been my day and sadly my 15 day Challenge failed as no time to make anything boo hoo! But I couldn't end just like that, so I you can all just imagine that what I share with you was made today and not a few weeks ago, that would be really good heeeee

Challenge Day - 11 (kind of)

This is a wee card I made today *wink wink*, using some amazing papers I got from my lovely friend Susie and another of my Saturated Canary images




Hope you like my wee card, I know I just adore my SC images and love how talented Krista is!
