First and foremost I must say "Congratulations" to my niece, Lynda, and her husband John on the birth of their new baby son - a brother for the totally gorgeous Ethan. Congratulations to my sister, Kath, and her husband Chris on becoming grandparents again. Looks like Kath just will not have time for crafting now she has got two grandsons.
On Monday Chris had to go to the hospital to see a consultant and he has to have an operation for a trapped nerve.
Tuesday my Mother in Law had to go to the hospital.
Wednesday I went for my check up and was pleased that everything is OK apart from having a painful hip, which the consultant said could be arthritis.
The consultant said that when you have had chemo it can age your body by as much as 10 years - don't know whether that is right or not.
Thursday Lynda went to the hospital and it was the funeral of my husband's sister in law (his brother's wife)
Today I had to drop my husband at the hospital for the camera "up and down" (everything is alright.) Then I had to dash to the dentist. My sister rang me to say that my niece had started in labour. I came home and had a much needed coffee and my husband's sister rang to tell me she has a benign tumour!! Then my sister rang to say Lynda had had a little boy and then I had to pick my husband up. By the time I got home I was exhausted.
Today the decision has been made to fold the rugby team that we run (at least I won't have to embroider the t.shirts) due to lack of players. I don't know what has happened to all the young lads they don't seem very interested in playing rugby - I think they must be out shopping with their girlfriends. I am very disappointed about this really but I suppose these things happen. The players, including my husband, that are interested in still playing and trying to stay together as a team have decided to move on to Brighouse and join their club.
I am now frantically trying to get all my Christmas Cards made and sent out.
Below is one that I made using another Whipper Snapper Stamp
and I love the one below. I used 2 Magnolia stamps and I am very pleased with the outcome.
The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, the ribbon and dark coloured card is from Stampin Up and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
I think I need to go and have a lie down now!!
thank you for looking (if anyone has!)
