Good morning, it's Wednesday again and its time to fly over to Julia's blog, to participate in the biggest worldwide desk sharing weekly event. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who wished me well last week. I'm just about getting over it and can't wait to catch up with crafting. The good news the procedure seems to be working and I have no pain in my legs, my back though is still hurting, but who cares, I can walk without the crutch and can't wait to go out and walk walk walk. To be honest I don't think its going to help my back that much, it didn't in March but it did give me 6 weeks of pain free legs so I feel blessed at being able to do that.
So my desk hasn't changed that much except I did do some sofa craft of putting my unmounted stamps on mount and going through my promarkers seeing which colours blend well together so what you see on my desk is where they have been dumped by the kids when I asked them to bring them upstairs lol.
One thing I love about blogging is being able to share with everyone and it makes me feel good. At the beginning of August I found 2 rocking horse charms and couldn't help but buy them as I knew that Bleubeard and Elizabeth collected them. I contacted her and asked if she minded if my rocking horses could join its family over with her and arranged to send them. She was lovely and kept letting me know that they hadn't arrived and to be honest I thought they had got lost in the post, so ever since September I have continued to go to the garden centre where I got them and over the last 5 times I have nipped in they haven't had any. But Monday night I got a beautiful message from her saying they had arrived (one minus a head!), and she told me how grateful and how it has made her feel happy. That message is the best feeling I had, its sometimes those little things mean more than lots of money etc. They wasn't expensive just 50p each and it was the first time I had sent abroad so sent it mega snail pace and only paid £1.80 (thinking it would be there in a week lol). Nowadays £2.30 wouldn't even get you a box of chocolates, but I feel that I have sent over flowers, chocolates and a hug to her by this little thought and feel fantastic for it. I'm not saying that I go out buying things, I'm just trying to express that a card you have made or a hug or phone call can go a long way and make someone feel great. She is showing them on her blog today so if you would like to meet the newest members of the family nip on over there on the link above.
Thank you so much for sharing, I'm sorry I have woffled on but it was so nice to chat to everyone out there seems I've been away from it all for a week. Hope you all have a fab crafty week. Kezzy xxx
