Feeling a bit down

Cant put my finger on how i feel tonight im feeling quite low dont know why ok maybe i do i have been trying to loose some weight for my holiday but it just isn't shifting i have tried smaller portions drinking loads of water ect but i still stay the same i know it's better than putting weight on but at the moment thats not how i feel.Got a few things on my mind at the moment we are due to go on holiday in 5 weeks time which im really looking forward to but my mum has to go into hospital the week before we go on holiday for a knee replacement so im worried about that although Charlie & i are going through on the tuesday night and will stay till sunday all being well mum should get home on the monday or tuesday.I know she wont be short of visitors but it doesn't stop me worrying it's bad enough we live 100 miles apart anyway but when im in majorca thats a different story.Mum keeps saying i have to go & enjoy my holiday which i will do my best to i will phone her every day the only thing is if she did have a problem she wont want me told about it.She had a DVT about 6 years ago and has been told this could come back again when she had the DVT she was in Benidorm with her sister but mum nearly died as the clot had broken up & had went to her heart & lungs she was only hours from death & was in intensive care for 2 weeks but she got better i think deep down this is whats worrying me.Hopefully i will feel fine again tomorrorw some how it helps when you put into words how your feeling but all the girls & Calv lift my spirits & make me laugh & seeing photo's of all the forum babies cheer me up no end with their cheeky big grins.

Kenny's birthday card

This is a birthday card i made for a friend's 50th birthday.His name is Kenny & he sings in our local pub along side his daughter Hazel together they are called Cheekha & they are great singing anything from 60s till present.Kenny also does karaoke in a couple of the pubs on a thursday & sunday and he will be 50 in september.Anyway i couldn't think of a way to make a card for him so asked for help on CBC and as usual the amount of help & advice i got was great so hears what i did.Ellen sent me a card with musical instruments on it & Joanne down sized the photo which originally had Hazel in it with her arm around kenny's neck so thank you for that joanne you did a great job.To finish off the card i have added a microphone cut out of the Argos catalogue and added some musical peeloffs around the edges.It doesn't really look that good in the photo but it looks good in the flesh im sure he will love it.His birthday isn't till the end of september but i thiught i would do it just now as i have a lot of stuff comming up so thought i would do it just now so im not rushing around at the last minute.
