A Friday Oldie. . . . . . . . . .

Good morning guys and gals. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I decided to join in with the Oldie for Friday that some of the ladies show, this week as this particular oldie is significant for a couple of reasons. I originally blogged it last November.

When I made it last year, I thought it would make a lovely birthday card for Nesta so I put it away carefully and fished it out for her special day this week.

Also, I had originally made it for a MAWTT challenge I had set called My Favourite Things based on The Sound of Music song...........this was my interpretation of raindrops on roses.

There is a new challenge over at MAWTT and the theme is "Back To School" I should have had a DT card for this challenge but I had asked Wendy if it was ok for time off with all that's been happening this end recently.
Would be great if you could pop over to MAWTT to see what the other girlies have come up with.

I did get out for a while on our anniversary but we decided on a take away rather than going out for a meal. It was more of an energy thing rather than feeling unwell this time.

Nesta has been a busy gal this week so we are hoping to get together for a take away in honour of her birthday, this evening.

Still waiting for my results but have had a couple of better days this week so hopefully things are looking up (as the gynaecologist said to the actress).

Thank you Lydia for giving me some hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. The stumbling block is having to wait until mid September before I even set eyes on anyone from cardiology, though I intend to try and get it brought forward once I get my results letter. Also, its not just A/Fib with me. Mine is always accompanied with RVR (Rapid Ventricular Rate) which seems to cause most of the problem with the condition as its the dangerous bit that usually ends up putting me in hospital.

The only way is up as Yazz once said (and, I also believe,the gynaecologist to the actress again, lol!!!)

Have a couple of sympathy cards to make, sadly but hope you all have a great Friday and chilled weekend.

  7. Hi Ang, loving to see your Oldie, and I loved it the first time around and still love it.

    Pleased you managed to get out for your anniversary for a wee while, and that you had a takeaway, curry perhaps?? We are going for one tomorrow, cheap business lunch. You take care and I will be emailing soon, Kate x

  9. Wonderful oldie. Sorry to hear your heart is still playing silly beggars. At least you will have the results of all the tests in when you finally see the cardiologist. Can't believe you are having to wait so long. I saw mine within 7 weeks of the referral and had had all the tests done before I saw him. Mind you my GP did think that my ECG they did at the surgery showed I'd had a heart attack. I didn't now that until the consultant said well, you haven't had a heart attack as your GP thought! I knew something was wrong though as the nurse insisted on speaking to the GP after she did it before I left the surgery. I really hope they can get you sorted soon, is the ankle getting better at least?!

  10. What a beautiful card! Love the roses! I hope you feel better soon. Hugs!
