Good morning guys and gals. Hope this finds you in fine fettle (what is a fettle anyway?)
Thank you so much for your best wishes. The calf pain has eased with resting but sadly the ankle is still not behaving. Hopefully, it will improve this week. Maureen, I really don't see the NHS recommending Flash as a tonic for anyone lol!!!
Well, silly me I gave in to Mr D's insistence that he was more than capable of doing the shopping, if provided with a detailed list.......he has a degree, yada yada!
However, intelligence and common sense do not always walk hand in hand...................
I was kind to him and decided to make full use of stuff that was in the cupboards and things in the frosty depths of the freezers (so frosty and deep, Ranulf Fiennes would have struggled) so the list only actually had 10 items on it.
I put pack sizes, price and even colour of the item on the list.........everything bar a photo!!!
He tootled off, pen in hand so he could tick things off (including me lol!!!) and returned with 2 items that were wrong (misread the list apparently) 4 items that weren't even on the list and 1 item completely missing, even though it had a tick next to it!!!...................................heavens to murgatroyd, what's a girl to do???
Now, back to the card. Following on from my last card, I made this for the same lady to send to the new baby himself, to let him know how precious he was (just thought he could keep it in his baby box when he's older) and she happily agreed.
Blue card, various shades
Forever Friends New Arrival snippets
Presscut squares dies
Docrafts alphabet die
Funky Foam (on the letters to give them depth)
White gel pen (faux stitching)
As you can see, it folded flat for posting. I'm sure there is a technical name for this type of card but I liked the thought of the 3D aspect for a baby's nursery.
Just before I go (I can hear the odd snore and yawn lol!!!) I've included a couple of snaps of my beautiful orchids. Several of them are in flower at the moment so they are a pretty sight.
I've had this one about 10 years, fished out of a B&Q bargain bin, half dead for 80p and it flowers faithfully every year (the other buds are now open, so it looks more fab).
This one is another that cost me less than a quid from a bargain bin.
More to follow next time, if that's ok.
Meantime, Hope this new week treats you all kindly.
