Update on my injuries aren't as good as I hoped, my right hand & especially my pinkie & ring finger are just flopping about. I've had the support taken off but will prob need surgery to straighten them, but no guarantees, I have to wait another three weeks to see if I can get them moving, still can't make a fist.
On the brighter side I've been out in the glorious sunshine reading, just finished a Jo Nesbo "The Devils Star", couldn't put it down, for lovers of detective stories & thrillers, highly recommended.
Totally different theme I'm now off to start "Call the Midwife", also just bought "The Help".
any other recommendations welcome.
I'm booked in to a SU workshop in 4weeks so really looking forward to that, just hope I can do more than watch.
Happy weekend & hope the sun stays shinning

Manicure done

Well she came, took one look at my still very obvious black eye, asked what on earth I'd done & still it didn't dawn, well eventually her face just dropped, when she noticed both arms damaged.
We had a bit of a laugh at the "broken  nail text", my nails are now looking really pretty with a french manicure & no screams in the process.
I'm sorry but I can only manage a wee while on here as my fingers get really sore & tired, hopefully another week should at least let me try some crafting, I've got a pile of books which are keeping me from being bored.
Take care Ann x



Hi all, sorry I've not managed on for a while, my hands have been quite painful, but easing a bit now & good news I had my cast off & now have a removable splint, right fingers still a bit swollen though. still can't manage crafting or even writing, I have a big house elf called Chris doing the housework, so being very spoiled.

On the funny side, I'm due for a manicure tomorrow & decided to go ahead with it as my nails are getting a bit too long, Emma comes to the house & I have gel nails, anyhow sent her a message about broken fingers to pre-warn her........ message returned , "That's OK, we'll manage to fix them tomorrow". can't waite to see her face, I assume she thinks my nails are broken LOL. will let you know tomorrow!

Another nice bit of news, I have a new great niece Xanthe Niamh she has lots of black hair will add a pic tomorrow along with blanket & card I thankfully had already finished.
Take care

No Crafting for a While

Hi all, hope you're having a better day than me!
Just spent the morning in A&E I fell on the way to the bus, I was going to Glagow to the SECC & tripped over a paving stone.
I now have two broken fingers R. hand & a plaster on L. arm, a black eye & a skinned knee, so looks like I won't be doing anything for a while, can just about manage to turn pages of a book.
Plus side, won't be doing any housework, good thing  my son's well trained, his comment, the lengths you'll go to get out og doing the ironing!!

Hope you all have a good weekend & think of me if your going to the SECC.
A wee plus side is I'm going to a SU workshop on Saturday, at least I'll be able to watch & I'm sure spend a little bit too.
Take care

I think this is just about the quickest card I've ever made, it all just fell together & I quite like it.
This is the first time I've used this stamp although I've had it for a while, completely forgot I had it.
I couldn't sleep last night & started counting PB's I do have a lot of them & more than a few never been used.
