Stuff & Things

My birthday was lovely on Tuesday. My hubby had booked the day off work without telling me - I opened my card from him at just gone midnight, to find a folded up holiday request form for the day off in there!!  As I'm so emotional at present (another chemo side effect LOL) I burst out crying!!

We went to Nandos (lemon & herb chicken and halloumi cheese heaven) then went to see Harry Potter. This was really a thing for my hubby, as he has read all the books and is quite into it. As a film goes, I thought it was ok....

My chemo side effects lead me to sleep in until 3.30pm today!! (Hence me still being awake at this ungodly hour)

Today I have made 2 x 60th birthday cards and a 10th anniversary card for friends who have put in orders with me.  Naturally I've taken photos, but out of respect for the people I have made the cards for, I won't post them until they've seen them!  To be honest, I'm quite chuffed with them.

I received a decent haul of crafting stuff this morning thanks to Ebay - lots of clear stamps including baby stuff, as there's a baby boom happening at present and I wanna cash in on it!!!

Cornwall Photo Post!

We went to The Eden Project on one of the days and I am quite pleased with some of the photos that came out.  It is a beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone!!  I may even use some of the flower photos in my cards...... *ponders*

Long overdue update........

Well, where have I been? Mostly in hospital, but had a venture to Cornwall too with my extended family.... That was lovely.  The hospital part has been sucky - stays in Christies mainly.  They have changed my treatment yet again (started new regime yesterday) so we'll see in around 8 week time with a new scan to see if it's stemming my bone cancer....... Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

Anyway, enough doom and gloom - Cornwall was AMAZING..... Fresh air, sun (for some part) and sea breeze - fish and chips, pasties, cyder farms and cornish cream teas - lovely way to live your life.

I've been lacking on the crafting front for the best part - having radiotherapy followed in quick succession with chemo kinda fries your braincells.... However, I have found a new lease of life in my crafting of recent, so once I get the damned stuff photographed I'll be updating on a regular basis!!

I'm also taking a few orders which is nice and positive - people seem to like what I do so who am I to complain?
