many of you don`t know but i have been fighting a planning application for land next to my house for 4 years.the plot of land has had 3 owners but alas my efforts have been in vain and the building started yesterday.its left me very stressed and all day all i`ve heard is a blooming digger even though they are not supposed to work sundays!!
i wouldn`t be bothered if i had a back garden but i have a side garden so this huge  3 bed house is going to be about 6 inches from my fence with a toilet window facing my garden and will oblitarate my light in the summer.
oh my poor pretty flowers :(
anyway i also must apologise for not visiting you today but my little boy has been poorly since yesterday with his asthma and i thought it was going to be hospital last night but we managed to calm him down and his chest has been a bit better today.

Hi Coops, Gorgeous card! I love the fab papers.

So sorry to hear you have been feeling stressed today and that your little lad hasn't been well :-( My son hasn't been well today ~ bad cold & chesty cough. Going to keep him at home with me tomorrow. He said to me when I was putting him to bed that he thought it was a good idea because he could keep me company ... aww bless him :-)

Hope you have a better day tomorrow.
