Oldie For Friday. . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you and yours.

I've had a bit of a quiet week. Didn't get lunch with Nesta Monday after all as was a bit dizzy and breathless when I went to the doctors so she bought me straight home. Have improved with that since but have now picked up a cold from goodness knows where.
Now, I know some of you were telling me off about not doing my exercises but they are just ones for my ankle and its only the ones that make me dizzy that I haven't been doing, honest guv.
I managed to walk to our local Polling Station and back up a hill last night without getting too out of breath and without my crutch, so the orthotics are working well.

Today's oldie is from a couple of years ago and I picked it to re-show because of the wonderful sentiment. Its been lovely of late, to know that I have some fantastic friends who have rallied round and also through the blog to cheer me up and keep in touch to see how I am.

So all my dear friends, thank you for your kind words and best wishes over the last few weeks. Its all very much appreciated. Thank you also for the Get Well cards.

Hope you don't mind if I show you some of the beautiful flowers I've been lucky to receive........

.......from Nesta, John and Di, Julie and Julie. These white lillies are the biggest I've ever seen, Bearing in mind, that dresser cupboard is about 3ft high lol!

And how about this beauty ..................... birthday present from John, who knows that I love hot chillies on everything (a cheese sandwich is not complete without chopped chilli on top lol!!!). I have about 4 left on the plant and there are some new flowers forming. I've also saved some seeds as these chillies are so delicious, mega hot but sweet too.

So, thank you all again and hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

  6. Hello Ang,
    Your card is beautiful, and the sentiment is lovely. Who's stamp is it? When I saw the title of the blog today, I thought you were welcoming me!!!!
    Your flowers are gorgeous, now the Chilli plant I'm not so sure about! My son in law would definitely like one, so that's given me an idea for his birthday. When was yours, you kept that quiet!
    Take care, I also know about breathless, palpitations and dizziness . It usually happens when I have a date with George Clooney!!!
    love xxx

  7. Hi Ang, beautiful card with a heartfelt sentiment..Sorry to hear that you are still having problems with your health.
    Gorgeous flowers to receive, lovely chilli plant too, unlike I'm not a hot girl, well not since Coventry lol.
    You take care, Kate x 😉

  13. Hi Ang,
    what a very superb Oldie today.
    I love your fantastic, and stunning design of this.
    The stamping round the edge of the card is awesome, and I remember a lovely bag you did once with those lovely stamped images.
    Wonderful flowers, and cards from your friends.
    I do hope you continue to feel so much better.
    Just be careful not to overdo things, and be back where you started.
    Have a very wonderful weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  14. Hey Ang - I do hope you are feeling much, much better. Your flowers are gorgeous but not anymore gorgeous than you "oldie". What might be an oldie for you is a newbie for me - outstanding.
    I hope you are feeling positive about the new Direction the UK is taking.
    Sandy xx

  15. Gorgeous card, gorgeous Lillies and lovely plant, I didn,t know you were a hot chillie person, !!!!!

    Keep well, xxxxx

  16. Hi Ang! Beautiful card and the flowers too! Love the idea of hot chilis on a cheese sandwich - (although jalapenos are my chili of choice)! Glad to hear you are doing better. Take care.

  17. Love the card, Ang. As you say, the sentiment says everything.
    I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself - I've had a sore throat for a couple of days and now I have a streaming cold! A good excuse to watch one of John's shows.

    Look after yourself.

  18. Lovely card Ang I have that Lattice die and don't think I've used it more than.... once/twice... ? I must have another play Hope you''re feeling better tonight your flowers are gorgeous

  19. Hi Ang, love the card and the sentiment is one of my favourites sorry you didn't make lunch but better to be in your own home when your not great.
    The flowers are gorgeous and a great idea with the chilli plant, hope your a bit better now.
    Nancyd xx

  20. Fab oldie, love those fuchsias you made. Glad to hear the ankle is improving. Hope the heart calms down. I'm under a cardiologist and I feel like such a fraud sat in the waiting room to see him being in my 40's and everyone else looks about 80! Hugs Cara x

  21. Wow, what a beautiful card Ang!! Love your floral arrangements, it's like a delightful little garden!! Wow, look at all those flowers. That must have helped to cheer you up a bit. I do hope you are feeling a bit better. Sending hugs :)

  22. What a beautiful card! Gorgeous flowers! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  23. Well fancy eating the plants. Whatever next!! Loved seeing your golden oldie. I'm guessing that you made those gorgeous fuchsias with your own fair hands. I have in structions for how to make them but not tried it myself yet. Hope your feeling less dizzy now. hugs Mrs A.

  24. Gorgeous flowers and love your card, it's so beautiful.xx get well.xx {aNNie}

  25. A really pretty card and I'd love to know a little more about it, when you've rested up.
    Take things easy, Mrs Lady.
    From the tub! Jennie

  26. Hi Ang, glad to hear you are improving bit by bit, love your Oldie card, and well those flowers are just gorgeous, and the chilli plant is fab, I love chilies too. Take care. Bx

  28. Hi Ang, do hope you are feeling a bit better, and not trying to do to much.
