Not much happening here. I still can't get into my craft room to play so i have a little pile of stash on the sofa next to me, looks like I have built a nest lol I have made a few cards and done a little knitting. I have also started the first 2 lessons on Willowing's free course. I can't finish them yet as I am waiting on some new crayons to arrive which invalid boy very generously ordered for me.

these cards were all really quick 10 min cards based on sketches from Kirsty's blog.

Speaking of invalid boy, we had good news yesterday, he had a checkup at hospital, the doc was very pleased with the healing progress. He was told that he is ahead of where they expected him to be, and that he should be walking again within 3 weeks.YAY!!!

I will be glad to have a rest from cooking meals, in 6 weeks I have not repeated an evening meal. It's amazing the recipes you can find online lol

I have started having acupuncture, had 2 sessions so far. I was so worried it would be horrible, but it didn't hurt at all. I get 5 needles in each ear, and it is supposed to help with the hot flushes that I have because of my medication, hope it starts to work. I also have to go for a bone density scan, I am sure that will be fun..not .
Watch out for giant jaffa cake recipe this weekend. You will need a sponge flan case, an orange jelly, dark chocolate and double cream.

    so glad the manboy is nearly valid again...

    try hugging the 22 year old one too - I have found that the older the child is the more interesting the sounds they make when squeezed by a mummy 17 year old yells 'inappropriate' at top volume epescially if it happens in the Westfeild Shopping Centre 'cos I'm bored and have taken to meaningless hug mode

  15. Lovely simple little cards Darcy. Glad to hear your mister is doing better, the Sole part of this blog title obviously refers to him now, yes??!! Looking at earlier posts I see you have some of The Chalet School series of books, are these the ones that have whole passages in French and German, or am I thinking of something else? Like the sound of Green Tomato cake, we had fried green tomatoes and scrambled eggs for breakfast last Sunday morning! Very tasty they were too!

  17. Such simple looking cards, and so beautiful as well.

  18. Great cards. Don't worry about the bone density scan. They did mine through my foot. I saw it all on a screen.Amazing

  19. Thanks so much for the sweet words you left on my blog. I know YOU know back pain. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. I was totally impressed by those cards and especially not being able to get to your craft room. Glad to hear the good news about hubby. I'm sure HE was pleased, too. And that cake in the next post looks too good to be true. Sounds like you were all ready for Halloween. We don't go through all that bagging of gifts in the states. You have your trick or treaters spoiled. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
