Spending on my crafts........

My DH supports my wonderful hobby - but since I have not been well, with the major back problem and running into allergic reactions to everything and anything.....LOL, I have been comforting myself by simply buying stamping stuff.... so today, I was hoping to calculate what I have spent in the last 3 months...... boy I got a shock!! and now I know why DH say, why don't you buy shares with these company's!! I have an appointment today with the surgeon, so wish me luck as I am hoping I don't go there..... its been a bad day since yesterday!!

Oh What a relief.....

My Physio on the 15th went fine, although it was painful as hell, I was very determined to do all of the exercises the lady was asking, it has been tough doing them, as I have to do them as often as possible, with the meds and the exercise, I have felt about 10% better, although the pain is still there.... am taking it easy too, and doing a little bit of sorting out, as my studio is being built and will be ready in a few weeks... hooray!! will post the card I made for Chris's cousin's birthday tomorrow.... to visit back to see it!!

Well I am still alive!! and have an answer at last....

Its been several weeks, I have been very ill and in excruciating pain, some days I could not even move or get out of bed, something needed to be done, so the issue was forced upon our GP for me to go private, and after all the tests and MRI, it has been found that I have 6 prolapsed discs and 2 of them are really bad - so now I will have to take physio for 6 weeks, with my first appointment on the 15th of April, until then I am still in pain..... and if that does not improve, will need to go into surgery. Well, I am hoping it will work with the physio, as I have allergies to all the main pain killers as well as GA, its been a tough fight the last few months or must I say two years, as it all started when we moved to Cambridge - but at least now I know its not anything serious, and its not related to my breast tumour!

I am trying to stay positive, until things can get sorted out, I have not been able to do any stamping nor update my blog - since I can take limited pain killers, I am trying to work with the ones I can take, so the pain is still there, which makes me very immobile.

I have missed so much of my stamping stuff, that I am having withdrawal symptoms - just buying stuff like crazy!!

Well the Stampin-up mini catalogue is out, and there are some fab sets in there, as soon as I have my pain/mobility sorted out, I will hold a workshop to introduce the mini! interested in joining me, let me know by e-mail or simply leave a message on my blog! see you soon with my Easter projects!

Wowza Candy - 72 copics to win!!

Yeah, 72 copic markers up for grabs on Karen's blog - I have been so ill the last few weeks that everything I love to do and say and enjoy in life simply went out of the window! today, has been one of those days that I am trying to catch up - so when I got to my blog to at least do some update - I had a comment left for me by pittapitta, who had this link for the 72 copic markers to win, simply could not resist and well there is a second chance too!! ... so here ya go!! I will be back soon, hopefully with some more news from what's happened.....
