Hubby's Birthday

A quick hello to you all and hopefully you all have Christmas fully prepared. I am so glad you all enjoyed my wee Christmas message to you. It is hubby's birthday tomorrow so after that we will be able to do any decorating, tree etc as he doesn't like it done before his birthday which I can understand. I made his card but on reflection I should have made the meerkat a bit taller, never mind it doesn't have to be to scale, does it? On Thursday I have to go to the boob squashing clinic and I am so looking forward to going to Bristol centre which is bound to be bedlam - NO. I had to laugh as the appointment time is 12.12 which is a bit precise. I will be able to get there by bus and will have a quick look round the market if it is not too busy. Hubby enjoys baking and cooking as well as meerkats and always likes to use a dash of wine or cider in his dishes.


  1. Great fun card Flora - and happy birthday to your hubby! Don't you just SO look forward to mammograms??? NOT!! But an essential appointment nevertheless.
    Hope you enjoy the market - and we - like you- don't put our tree up until a few days before the day---- cos I get sick of looking at it!!!

  2. Flora this is fantastic the image and layout are so much fun. Happy Birthday to your hubbby. Caroline xx

    1. The image is on a CD ROM from Gwyneth Windsor. It has a number of digi stamps on it and I find it very useful. The important thing is to make a full recovery - blogging will still be here when you are better. xx Flora

  9. Hi Flora, Happy Birthday to your hubby for tomorrow, bet he will love your card it seems to encompass all you say he enjoys. I love it when a card is really personal, I feel it is more appreciated. Good luck with your squashy bits.

    Know what you mean about the tree, when Jackie was little that was part if her birthday, she got to put up the tree. John and Audrey always wait till after Roberts birthday to put theirs up.

  18. Hi Flora,
    super card. Just love everything about it.
    I hope hubby has a wonderful Birthday.
    I just love your description of the boob clinic.
    One year they really hurt me and I came out with tears in my eyes.
    I did feel sorry for the next lady as she looked at me and said does it hurt. Well I tell you the lady doing the scan that day was a butcher because I have a good pain thresh hold.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
