Good morning good blogging folk. Hope you are all well?
I have to say, I have had a wonderful few days. I think the iron tablets have kicked in and I've been full of beans (where did that expression come from???) and breathing has been just about normal. The cardio consultant appears to have been correct when he said my feeling rough after the cardioversion was down to the anaemia rather than heart.
I would say I'm feeling almost normal but I know that will attract comments from various quarters lol!!!
I did see John on Thursday and he commented how I had got the colour back in my cheeks (on my face, lol!!!).
Funny story about colour in my cheeks. The tablets I take make your skin photosensitive so I'm supposed to wear factor 50 block on my exposed areas (ooooh, errrr!!!) when I go out. The first time I tried this, having never used above a factor 8 before, I put some on my face and the bloomin stuff just wouldn't rub in. Its thick and white so I ended up looking like the love child of Marcel Marceau and a geisha girl !!!
Needless to say, I had to wash it off and I've taken my chances with daylight since.
Now, today's card has been in lurking in my files for a while. Nesta asked me to make a floral card for her Auntie's 70th birthday so as I like a bit of floralage and foliage, I was happy to oblige.
White and pink card
SB Classic Diamond dies
SB Carnation Creations dies
HC Delicate Aster dies
Various foliage dies
Tonic flower punch
CE Stitched Bunting Numbers Stamps
John Lockwood Sentiment stamp
Card-io butterfly stamp
Various distress inks
Bling and pearlage
I love making floral cards and apparently, Auntie was very pleased with this.
Had my mammogram results through yesterday (posted from Bristol, had to laugh in a Sid James manner at the irony lol!!!) and The Girls are ok and clear so thankfully, that's one bit (or 2 bits actually) of me that's working properly lol!!
No pictures of birdie buffet today as getting a downloading error again from camera to laptop.
I'm also trying to get a snap of Scruffy Robin. He's a sweet little thing but looks like he's stuck his beak in a socket as all his feathers stand on end.
June, if Mr F looks carefully, that is the trunk and branches of the "you know what" on the last birdie photo. How are yours. Maureen and Yorkie Wendy's smash and grab plans going? I'm guessing Maureen needs to be a bit steadier on her pins first.
Oooh, and I would never try and out do Flash. I think if I got The Girls out in public, it would devalue the property prices in the area lol!!! Mind you, with all the ECGs I've had, I think half the hospital have seen them!!!
Well, off to a craft show at the National Motorcycle Museum today and hopefully meeting up with Christine H and John (he's doing some demoing). Don't need anything but its rude not to look lol!!!
Will be back in time for GP highlights at 5.30. Hoping its as exciting as the last one and hoping I can avoid any news bulletins so I don't find out the result beforehand.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday and that the week ahead is kind to you.
Ps. . . . . . .box for the above card on the next post. x
