Great new Mum made it through her 6 hour operation, she really is made from my Dads old army boots!still early days but looking more positive and a much better outcome than anticipated, I wouldn't have wished this on anyone but there was no alternative...if only thieves hadn't waited for us to go out to visit her in hospital and then strip the lead off her bay window roof! so now I have to get it repaired ...
My little cheer up card is made from the Humphrey cd.....
