Good morning everyone. Here's hoping this week has started well for you all.
Mr D is chewing well now and has less twinges. I'm about the same but seeing a podiatrist this week to see if some orthotics may help. Can't get this done on the NHS as I'm not classed as high risk (perhaps I should have mentioned my getting intimate with the hedge!!!) so its a private consultation......kerching!
I'm signed off until the middle of June so guessing I'm not very popular at work now but retail is not the best occupation when you have trouble walking lol!!!
Anyhoo, sadly, I had to make one of "those" cards recently. The lady of the couple that the golden wedding cards were for lost her Dad. He was 96, bless him.
Sue Wilson Ursa Gemini
John Lockwood Flower Frame Elements sentiment
Hougie board for embossing around
Dovecraft blue bling
Paris Dusk Memento Dew Drop ink
As you know, I like to keep these cards simple but I thought I must try something different other than keep using the lily die lol!!!
The navy layer is all one piece. I was very lucky that the die cut portion for the shadow, lined up lol!!!
I don't have access to the variety of wildlife that the lovely Pamellia does but most of you will know about Mr and Mrs B, our resident blackbirds. I have been trying to snap Mr B on one of his cheeky sneaks into the house, when he sits by the fridge (where his grapes are kept) but the camera is never to hand when you need it!
I did get this snap of him sitting on the rail around our decking, after his lunch.......look at the mess on our chair lol!!!
My dwarf lilac is particularly beautiful this year so I've popped on a photo of one of the stems.
The scent from this and the wisteria now in full bloom (you can just see the racemes forming on the above shot) is wonderful and you can even smell them with the upstairs windows open.
Don't you just love Spring?
Until next time, take care and be good!
