Wedding Anniversary

Tomorrow is my 10th Wedding Anniversary ! :D And I made this card for my Husband. I also entered it in a card competition...I didnt win though !
It is a shaker style card, I have never done one, and the Hundred Thousands are real !
He will be getting his card tonight, because tomorrow we are flying to Costa Rica !!!!!! Well, we'll be flying into Madrid first, spend the night there, and then on Friday we take the 11 hour flight to Costa Rica...and this time our travelling time will be a lot shorter than usual. We used to go this way: Dublin-Amsterdam-Miami-Costa Rica, all in one day !!

I'm also relaxed about my daugther's tooth. She is fine. And I have got more reassurance that we'll be ok travelling tomorrow. All the better she will be seen in Costa Rica asap.

All my life I have grabbed the phone to ring a doctor for an appointment whenever I have ever needed to see one, and in Costa Rica you get an appointment within a few days, less than a week usually. But this concept of having to go to your GP, ask for a referral letter to a Specialist, sitting down and waiting for weeks or months for an appointment ! This is completely new and frustrating in my honest opinion. Things only get worse sometimes, as in my daughter's case, when nobody can do anything to help, and when you force the system to serve you as you deserve, they just let you down again :(.

Ireland is a lovely place to raise your children, I am very happy they are growing here, probably safer than in Costa Rica, but when any of us need the medical service, my feeth shake and my patience falls apart !!!

I won't be creating for a while, but I will pop in to say "Hi" while in Costa Rica, might share a picture or two !

    Have a fab time in Costa Rica. And if you replace Costa Rica by Brazil, it is exactly what I feel about Ireland & medical services.
