Apologies for being 24 hours late with this but by the time I got round to it last night I could hardly see. My reading/computer glasses are having new lenses fitted and boy am I missing them. Just going to have to pace my reading/craft/computer activities over the weekend. :(
This week has been much better than last. Dad is out of hospital (no scan results as yet but a big cut down in the amount of meds he has to take) and has a carer going in three times a day to prepare meals. This will be ongoing over three weeks so I shall visit him after that when I'll be of more use.
So...my gratefuls this week...
A Maze of Memories where I cropped last Saturday. It was wonderful to get out and see friends and just scrap for three hours without interruption - bliss! And then of course there was the stash shopping...
On which theme I thank QVC and Anna Griffin for solving my Christmas card problem... I bought the kit! I know a lot of people don't see this as "proper" card making but for me it's perfect. I shall still make special cards for family and close friends but don't need to panic when I lose days to my arthritis. Also I am very much a scrapbooker now and don't enjoy card making nearly as much as I used to.
I am grateful to Jo for introducing me to Collage Coterie - I have signed up for the classes and am looking forward to learning new techniques...when I get my glasses back!
ScrapnFIT deserves a mention too. I have signed up for the 90 day weight loss challenge and am also enjoying the sketch challenges. My "Room With a View" LO won the August challenge. Thanks Tiare - it was a lovely sketch to work with.
No crafting this week as I was still feeling down for most of it so other media have had to fill the gap!
Thank you to Swedish TV and BBC4 for the Wallander series. I've just watched the last one (for me - it was actually the first one broadcast but I missed it) and feel sad it's finished. Krister Henriksson was superb as Wallander.
Twilight (I know, I can hear you all saying "Not again!") which I watched with OH as he hadn't seen all of it.He enjoyed it and is ready to watch New Moon - I watched it again on Thurs. and I still cried even though I've read the book twice and seen the film three times!
The Headbangers Bible and Housework songs have been cheering me up this week too - well, they saw me through the "i" word.
And finally my online friends who have kept me busy poking them/vying for best celebrity lover on Facebook (Gill - that's you!), given me an ear to moan into (Val and Jan), sent me funnies to brighten nauseous Weds.(Carole) or generally just been there - too many to mention individually but you know who you are.
Lots of little gratefuls and a better week ahead.
Hope it's the same for all you Rockettes and fellow bloggers.
