Good morning blogging pals. Hope this finds you all well.
Welcome to Sharon who has kindly pressed the "follow" button, hopefully not by accident lol!!!
Mixed week here with yet another visit to hospital. . . . . . . .it comes to something when the nurses start greeting you like a member of the family lol!!! At least I now have the Echo result which was . . . . . . . .inconclusive!!!
Apparently, I was in A/Fib whilst the Echo was being done (I suspected as much as I could feel my heart pounding, hoping it was just a bit of anxiety) so there was some things they couldn't see so they may have to do it again but that will be up to the Cardio consultant. I'm seeing my GP on Monday as he is the one that will need to try and get my appointment brought forward (Currently mid September)
For those of you asking about my ankle, its still not 100% but I can walk without the crutches now, just using my heel cups, thank you.
Anyhoo, on to other things. Sadly, a friend of ours daughter passed away last week. She was in her mid 60s and had been ill but then the next day our lovely next door neighbours had their new baby boy. Mixture of emotions in 24 hours!!!
Baby Luca is a cutie and we got him a couple of little outfits but I couldn't find any wrapping paper I liked at Tesco (My shopping venues are limited at the minute) so I bought some plain blue wrapping and decorated it myself.
Mr Lockwood has stamped and decorated brown packing paper before now but I thought it needed something softer for a baby gift so that's why I went for the blue.
The baby theme stamps are a mixture all from Hobbycraft but the "LUCA" I made by cutting the letters from funky foam twice and gluing each letter together to give a deeper cushion to stamp with as I thought on layer might not give a clear image. Memento Dewdrop inks. . . . . . . . . .
Mum peeled the sellotape off very carefully as she said she wanted to keep the paper in his baby box (awww!!!).
Second generation stamping done to give a shadow effect on the letters.
Something different, which took me a while but it keeps me off the streets lol!!!
Next time, I will show you the card I made, which also went down very well.
Mr D has the day off today so I'm hoping I will be able to escape out somewhere for a little walk round a garden centre or a spot of lunch. . . . . . . .anything to get out as Mr D is not keen on me going anywhere on my own at the moment but I'm getting a little stir crazy.
Hope you're having a good week and thank you for all of your comments and well wishes.
