Crafty Calendar 'April' Challenge


Hi everyone! It's time for our challenge at Crafty Calendar and our theme this month is 'Spring/or Easter' and we are sponsored by Lawn Fawn and Crafty Ribbons so please come on over and join in our challenge and see what the DT have made too!!!!

Well my Son came round on Tuesday to take my old hanging baskets down (had the other's for years!) and then he took the hubster out and they came back with some lovely new lanterns and a couple of new gnomes LOL. I have been laid up with a really painful knee..I took 'the boys' out for a walk on the beach last week and on my way back to the car my left knee was hurting..and it's just got worse as the week has gone on. So painkillers ..anti-inflamatory pills and it has improved a lot but 'the hubster' is making me take long breaks LOL  We have had some lovely weather off and on this week I'm so fed up that I can't get into the garden but at least I've got a very tall Son that can reach things I can't lol and who loves gardening. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend ..lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Easter Card

Well it will soon be chocolate time! ...I've made some Easter cards for my neighbours and this was one of them and bought them some choccy treats to go with them. I can't wait until Sunday my eldest Grandson is coming and we are going to meet up with our Daughter and our Granddaughter just for a quick get together...we are so excited. Hubster bought me a new laptop and I've been dreading changing everything over from my old one but at least I got blogger sorted and he kindly ordered me a new lawnmower with wheels on hahaha I hate this getting old malarky. I took 'the boys' out for a walk last week and somehow I managed to hurt my left knee..it's been so painful and I didn't do anything at all...so I've been putting ice bags on and taking painkillers and anti-inflammatory pills so hopefully that will help. 

Anyhooooo I shall toodle off ...take care and stay safe..lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

Crafty Calendar's February Challenge 'Dies/and or Punches plus Ribbon/and or Twine'


Hi everyone! It's time for our February challenge at Crafty Calendar and we are sponsored this month by the fabulous Oddball Art and Crafty Ribbons...there are some fab prizes to be won so pop on over and join in!!!

The weather is horrible here right now...it rained all day yesterday and the same today but I have to venture out soon to do some essential shopping...Ollie picked up a nasty stomach bug on Tuesday so I took him to the vets on Wednesday morning because I had spent the night clearing vomit up ! He had an injection and tablets to bring home but has only started to be more lively this morning..but thank goodness he's been drinking plenty and I've been giving him small amounts of boiled rice and chicken. I now realise I should have trained to be a vet the prices they charge sheesh!!! £33 for a phone call??? they are only 500 yards from the bungalow it would have been cheaper to walk there lol 

Well must toodle off I hope everyone of you are safe and well including your families...lots of hugglessssssss Sue xxxxxxxxx
