Robin Red Breast!!!

Just a really quick card tonight as it is all I had time for. It's been a totally mad day here at Manic Towers. The chimney sweep arrived at 7:45am to get us all clean and ready for the cold weather. Ruby arrived at 8:20am ready for her breakfast and I seem to have spent the rest of the day cooking and washing up in between bouts of feeding, bathing and cuddling Ruby and writing in her daily journal which we keep for mummy to read when she comes home.
Then at 3:45 I was due at the doctors for my diabetes blood results which turned out not to be so good and I have to take extra medication for that. The good news was that since I was weighed last Tuesday I have lost another 2kgs and my blood pressure was excellent. I was down there quite a while and just got home in time to get Ruby ready for home and pack DS and DDIL's evening meal ready for them heat up. It makes sense while I am cooking for three of us to do extra and hand over a meal which just needs heating up so that DDIL doesn't have to spend her evening cooking and I know that it is much appreciated.

Anyway onto the card. I haven't the faintest idea whose the paper is. It was a stack that Deb and I split between us last year. It may be DCWV but don't quote me on that.
Robin is made up from the Tim Holtz Caged Bird die and a circle punch.

Tomorrow should be a little less frantic as we have no visitors due apart from Miss Doodle and no appointments to keep. The evening meal is ready to be cooked and I'll just need to prepare the veg and cook it so we may get our meal at a reasonable time. That'll save Mr Manic sacking!!!

Thanks for your visit today.
