Colourful Christmas

Good Afternoon all.  Hasn't it been a miserable day.  Well Chris's mum is leaving hospital today and going into a respite home.  She had to stay in over the weekend as it was bank holiday and of course the consultants and physiotherapists don't work then.  She saw the consultant yesterday and they were going to put a weight bearing cast on but her ankle was still too swollen so they put the lightweight one back on.  She has to stay in bed or in a chair so they have found her a place in a care home nearer to where she lives so we can visit easier.  I must say it's very nice, it's like a hotel with a view over a lake and lovely grounds.  She won't want to come home lol.

My card today is another quick and easy Christmas Card.
