Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you?
Before I forget, the lady who asked about the embossing folder on my MAWTT card, its called Lattice and is an Embossilicious one.
What a mixed bag of weather. I had to give in on Thursday evening and have the heating on ......... nearly July (as it was) and heating on!!! I nearly had to get the smelling salts out but I was colder than a penguin's chuff so what can you do.
Thank goodness it was better yesterday as we (well, Mr D in the main) had a tonne of blue slate to spread over the front garden. We do have pea shingle down but the local feline population have taken to using it like a giant litter tray so we decided to give them something a little less inviting to walk on. I did say to Jackie D that it was either slate or a Rottweiler on a long chain but I decided the Rottweiler poop would probably be bigger and more abundant than the cat plop!!!
Now, today is bloggy chum Darnell's (djkardkreations) birthday. I had the pleasure of meeting Darnell last Summer and this very funny lady is also very lovely.
Those who are familiar with Darnell know that she loves hummingbirds as she is lucky enough to live where they live.
As luck would have it, the Peacock kit that the lovely Jenny sent me also had a hummingbird topper on so what better way to use it than a card for Darnell. I know its safe to show as she has received the card and she's about 8 hours behind the UK.
White and aqua card
Hunkydory hummingbird topper
SB Reflective Moment die (cut in aqua and the white as a shadow))
Presscut rectangle dies
Lots of pearlage
A small card for me but the topper fitted nicely. There was also a blue tit in the set that I have made another card with.
Talking of blue tits, the mammogram wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I had prepared myself by using Andrea's technique (see last blog post), which drew some strange glances from Mr D as he tried to retrieve the milk for his cup of tea.
I do have more than a handful in that department so don't know if that helped cushion the clamping but compared to some things I've had done in the last 12 months, it was a breeze.
Sadly, the Cardiology appointment didn't go as well as I'd hoped. The consultant thinks I still need to have a Catheter Ablation for Pulmonary Vein Isolation as he feels that the A/Fib will return if he takes me off the tablets. If I were 20/25 years older, he would leave me on the tablets as by the time the nasty side effects kicked in, I would be at an age where they wouldn't matter.
I was put on the waiting list for this procedure back in January in case I needed it, so it could be in the next couple of months that its done . . . . . . eeeeeek!!!
Scared witless but no choice really but on the upside, he thinks the not so good days I've had are down to the anaemia so once the iron tablets have fully kicked in, he thinks I will feel better.
Ah well, that's the way it goes so onwards and upwards. Ohhh, and the lovely Mr D happened to mention to him that I snored so I'm being sent for sleep testing now as well ............... remind me not to take him to any future appointments lol!!!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday. Davey (the hairy Judith Chalmers) will be on his way up the Fjords (on a cruise rather than anything rude lol!!!).
Ps.......Barbara, that's very kind of you (is it Martine's workshop you're going to?). John and I live about 15 miles apart so meet up regularly. I know John has made pate and likes black pudding so I think he eats pate too but I wouldn't want to put you to any trouble or expense.
