Hi Joyce, want to say thanks so much, the card arrived today,so have put it with a couple of other early ones. You are a sweetheart and sooo organised, not like me ! Will have to get my self sorted soon as I have lots of birthdays this month, including my son's next Thursday.

Shame to hear about your cousin's sad times, and of course, I wish we had been able to do that visit earlier this year Joyce. Maybe when you feel better and get your legs sorted out, something can be sorted out so you see your cousin again.
Meanwhile positive thoughts to them all, and to you my love,
