feliz cumpleaños

which means Happy Birthday...

It's my daughter 23rd Birthday tomorrow and she's having a Mexican theme party (God help her neighbours), so thought I would do her a Mexican type card, but my mind went blank. OK, OK I can hear you all saying what's new...

Then Sue bubbles came up with the Idea of a large sombrero with lots of glitter, so with that in mind I made the card below, I hope Sam likes it...


The writing says una hija especial en su cumpleaños
which means To a Special Daughter on her Birthday

*********

I've been having a few problems with my hearing at the moment, it seems silly to moan as not painful, just a discomfort. It's been going on for the last couple of years, but lately it's got worse. It feels like a bubble in my left ear, like when you've been on a plane, but it does not pop. I've previously visited the Doctor who said I didn't have an infection (which was good news) and have tried sprays and ear drops from the chemist, but to no avail.

As not painful I've not been in touch with the Doctor about it since last year, but last night I didn't hear Steven get up twice (good job hubby did) so that sort of made my mind up and this afternoon I phoned the Doctor to ask their advice. They suggested me having it syringed and as I'm still using the ear drops, they've booked me in for tomorrow afternoon, (it seems you have to put oil in your ear for three days before having them syringed, to soften the wax)....

So I'm now I'm off to google ear syringing, to see what I have in store...
