Perfect As A Rose ....

Happy Saturday!  Here in the UK it's a Bank Holiday weekend, so that's an extra day off on Monday for some of us :)  This last week has been a better week with Dad.  He's been more or less his old self again, although he's still been very weak.  I've spent the week making some of his nutrition drinks into ice-creams and ice-lollies ready for the week after his Chemo treatment when we have trouble getting him to eat.  So, this week we're making preparations ready for his sick week.

Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by our regular sponsor
