Allsorts week 27

This week at Allsorts we are looking for cards inspired by Christmas Carols/Songs. I went for this card for "The Holly and the Ivy"
Its been a hectic week this week, I had an appointment on Monday with my consultant to discuss the delivery of the elephant I am carrying and the upshot is that he's unwilling to induce me early. I am to go back in 2 weeks and have another growth scan to see if he's grown a huge amount and also to check if the monkey has turned (he's breech at the moment!). Of course if he hasn't turned it will be c section time, never mind and early induction! Oh the joys, so I am doing lots of hands and knees stuff to give him plenty of room to turn himself but to be honest I don't think he has!!
Then we had a poorly Lily on Thursday night, she was sick all over her bed poor wee mite and was more upset that she wouldn't be able to dress up for Pudsey Day at school than anything else. Then bless her she was apologising for being sick!! Awww how do you explain to a 6 year old that its ok she couldn't help it? She spent all day yesterday just lying on the couch and hardly ate a thing. Thankfully she is much much better today :o) Oh the joys of kids at school...........all the tummy bugs and colds and hair bugs (yup we had a morning with the nit comb last week.....bring back Nitty Nora the Head Explorer I say lol)
Hmmm a lazy weekend is called for I think, feet up on the couch for me :o)

First of all Panda what a gorgeous card you have made, i love it. You have had a busy week indeed I hope your not too uncomfortable with baby Panda inside you.... he's keeping you on your toes, let's hope he does some turns and twists in these last few weeks and is the right way round and you don't have to have a C section.
Poor wee Lily, it can't be much fun for her just now. Hopefully she's over the worst now as you say she seems to be better today.
Hugs to all of you

Aw!! Hope Lily is feeling better now! And hope that the little elephant sorts himself out (Jacob engaged at the last moment - it could be a second child thing or a boy thing, not sure!)
