Celebration and Consolation

I've spent the last 3 days involved in 'family events'. Brian was 60 on Sunday, so there's been a bit of celebrating. (Or was it consoling!) Anyway, we had a lovely champagne lunch with 4 friends at World Service in Nottingham. He's doing well for his age, bless him.
Yesterday was a non-celebratory day...my daughter failed her second driving test and was totally distraught. Its really hard to watch your child in distress. She has a car and starts a new job soon and really needs to be able to drive.
Anyway, we tried to put things into perspective and I helped her book another test. (An expensive day!!)
I'm off now to photograph my birdhouse ATCs - its time I put some pictures on this blog!
Love Linda

Tell your daughter not to worry too much. My daughter only passed her text in march of this year on the 4th attempt. Its getting harder and harder if you ask me. But she did it. We too bought her a new car and have taxed and insured it for her.
Very expensive i must say but well worth it to see her face glowing.

Gorgeous atcs. I love the Invoke stamps. Have a set arriving tomorrow and 2 sets at the end of the month.

Happy Birthday to Brian (and yes he does look like he is doing well for his age!)

Sorry to hear about your daughter - I know how you feel - it is so hard to see our children in distress but Segsa and Tina are right - she will pass when the time is right (and having you there to comfort will help no end.)
