Make us laugh!

Well we are not having a good time at the moment!  Hubby is very poorly with flu and not man flu this time!!! :o)  And my son Theo, 7 years old, has no school to go to as the schools in the area that we have moved back to are full, and the council(if I may say this) have given us the worst advice from start to finish!  we now might have to appeal to get my son into a school, which will take up to another 6 weeks!!!  I am not a happy mummy at the moment and am very unimpressed with the goings on at the council who have left us in the dark through this whole process and could not even be bothered to phone us to tell us of the problems they were having until we contacted them AGAIN on the friday before they were supposed to start school, which is of course today!!  :o( So he has now missed his first official day of school.  I made him work anyway, but I am no teacher :o(  so a very stressful day has been had by all  :o( 

Well that is my vent for today over, so here is my card

They are asking for us to make them laugh over at Doodle dragons this fortnight, so here is my entry, I thought this image was such fun :o)  I have used Some freebie papers, that came with a Quick cards papercraft magazine, called Summer goodness by Raspberry road designs.
