I can't believe that another week has gone by and we're truly into April now. At least Spring seems to have arrived and Max and I are enjoying our walks in the sunshine - guess that's my first grateful.
So what else do I have to be grateful for this week?
Have to mention the football (honestly, I do). Last Saturday I was in despair watching our match against West Ham. So upset at being 2 down by half-time I live paused the TV and stomped off to my laptop. It worked though! Returned 20 mins later and fast forwarded....to see Rooney score! Managed to watch the rest of the match in relative excitement. Continued my "helpful avoidance" strategy on Tuesday when we played Chelsea in the Champions League. Watched the first half, saw Rooney score again then watched "Castle" on Alibi instead of the second half. Result!
Have to be grateful for creativity - I spent a lovely four hours cropping at A Maze of Memories on Sunday (the results of this are already on my blog). Then my mojo went missing for a few days so I sought inspiration from the internet. Now, thanks to Joanna (aka Fiddlesnips) I am enrolled in a mini book swap organised by Lenna. Something a little bit different for me but I already have some ideas thanks to Valerie - esp. since I've sourced some structure paste. Amazing what Amazon sells! And tomorrow is...Scrap Club! I have my Spring photos ready. And Sunday is.....a trip to Alexandra Palace ,for the craft show,with Pat.
Joanna is now tempting me with a four week Collage course run by Claudine Hellmuth.....I'm resisting so far.....lol!
David gets his usual mention for generally being supportive etc. but also this week for his help on Monday. The Nuffield Orthopaedic rang about midday to say I could have an appointment at 15:00 that afternoon. He got me there and I am almost pain free (touching wood here). Despite my GP telling me my blood tests were fine ( the important one had actually doubled)I'm having a major flare up. One massive steroid injection followed with the promise that if it didn't help....I'll be sent for ultrasound and have injections into the problem joints at my "official" appt. in May. Eek!
The joy of baking returned this week as I mentioned in my last post - unfortunately so did the joy of eating the results! Oh well, we all need treats from time to time and someone, mentioning no names but there are only three of us in the house , ate my chocolate! I've been very good about only having a few squares each day but when I went to the cupboard yesterday...no chocolate. Personally, I think this is a punishable offence.
And finally, my gorgeous boy Nick who sent me a very sweet Mother's Day card and a message on Facebook asking me to call him (no credit on his phone).We had a lovely chat and he's threatening a visit during the Easter break.
Off now to link up on Virginia's blog.
Hope you've all had a great week and have an even better weekend.
p.s. Max doesn't like chocolate - not even doggy chocolate...so who does that leave?
