Good morning everyone. Hope you are well and been enjoying some glorious weather. It's been beautiful here for the past few days.
Well, the latest news is, the doctor thinks I've damaged my Achilles Tendon and has ordered me to rest it for 2 weeks. The pain had spread into my calf as I was compensating for the ankle so it wasn't good.
I can't take anti-inflammatories due to other medication I have to take so it's rest and heat for 2 weeks. Felt a bit mortified as I've never had a sick note (well, fit note as they are now) before but Mr D has got tough & said I'm to do as I am told for a change (don't they get brave when they can move quicker!!!)
The doctor also seemed to suggest that rest may not resolve the issue and I may need an injection but that's not compatible with my tablets either so he may need to re-jig those!!!
I get pain whether I move it or keep still so we'll just have to see how it goes. I guess I'm as popular as a bacon sandwich at a vegetarian picnic with work at the moment but it was probably carrying on for the past couple of weeks when it was a mere niggle that got worse, that's made it how it is now.
Now, on to happier things..........a card. I was asked to make this for a lady I know as her sister had a long awaited baby. He arrived a few weeks early in February but is now home and doing well.
Blue card (different shades)
Tatty Teddy decoupage
Crafts Too Baby embossing folder
CE Linen embossing folder
John Lockwood Monday's Child stamps
SB Labels 4
Sissix Heart die
Hobbycraft corner punch
Hobbycraft baby stamps
Teal Zeal and Bahama Blue Memento Dewdrop inks
I don't normally fuss to much with the insides (through laziness, so apologies Jenny L, the queen of inards lol!!!) but I wanted to feature John's poem stamp too as it's such a lovely set so the above is the inside of the card.
Tatty was originally carrying a pink balloon so I snipped it off and replaced it with the blue heart one instead.
The card had to be relatively flat as it was being posted. I also made the lady a card to send to her nephew to say how precious he is so I shall show that next time.
Thank you for you for your kind wishes and comments. Rest is not really in my nature so its going to be difficult. Watching Mr D hang out the washing Tuesday made me cringe but I had to bite my lip and sit still lol!!! He has mentioned giving him a list and he will do the shopping but I fear that could be a step too far..................It's taken me about 5 years to get over the last time I let him go solo with a shopping list..............perhaps a Tesco on line order instead lol!!!
Think its supposed to get a bit nippy at the end of the week so hope you keep warm and well.
Hoping for a visit from Nesta today to cheer me up and for a bit of company (Mr D had a couple of days off to look after me but now back at work)
You all take care and be good.
