Afternoon all. Yep, sickly Squirrel here again. I am determined to go back to work tomorrow, I am going a little stir crazy having been indoors since last Friday night! Thankfully my temperature seems to have settled now, but I still have a brain full of cotton-wool (what's new there then) and waves of nausea but have not had to bolt to the bathroom today. But I have slept an enormous amount, night and day - wrong time of year for hibernation I know. To anyone who is also suffering from this evil-pixie virus, I wish you well, and soon!
In four weeks, it will be my darling parents fifty-third wedding anniversary - I still find that amazing and wonderful, mostly amazing because I'm not sure how they've survived it! Like every marriage they have had their ups and downs but I think the key to it all is remembering it is a partnership and things work both ways. I am so proud of them and give thanks for being able to call them mum and dad. Awwwwh. I can get away with the mush, they don't read this, lol.
Mum and dad got married on Easter Saturday and I wanted this to be all spring colours, fresh and bright, but I wanted it to look like a chocolate box too - not sure if I've achieved it but it was fun trying.

I've kept it sentiment free on the front as I shall give it to them with a frame (it's an 8x8 card) as mum likes to display stuff as long as possible, bless her!
