Our Next Challenge


Good Friday Morning Ladies, 

Well that's another week done, what a week it's been!  Our first family case of Covid, poor Becca has had a miserable week, Rheumatology clinic, bloods and Xrays on Tuesday,  coming home feeling terrible,  thinking it was just stress from hospital, only to discover after feeling worse on Wednesday that she had Covid !!, it has really knocked her down bless her,  she was in tears yesterday, she said that even her hair folicles hurt, which I read is actually a symptom.  To add to her woes, she has birds in her chimney,  she had it capped last year but they put the wrong cap on and birds can still get in!  So she has been laying in bed terrified that the bird will fly out of the fireplace in her bedroom,  Benji keeps barking  up the chimney, which would be fine, but the debris that the birds are sending down is making a huge mess and at some point as Benji has had his head at the chimney he has ended up with something in his eye, so he had to have an emergency vet appointment today costing Becca £160, while Adam was bundling Benji into the car he noticed that the windscreen had a huge crack across it, obviously a car has flicked a stone up causing the crack!  The insurance want £120 to replace windscreen,  so without even getting out of bed today she has lost £300!                                                                                     I only ever hear from Becca about once a week as she is usually super busy at work, not getting in until really late, so it's been quite a shock to the system having 4 calls a day !!  I do hope she feels better today.x

Our Next Challenge 

I decided that it was about time we did another TicTacToe Challenge as we haven't done one for a while, I looked through quite a few but couldn't find one that a decent selection of choices, so I decided to make my own! 

I have tried to include something that would suit everyone's taste/style etc, any occasion too, so that those wanting to make Christmas cards have enough choices.  The other big thing I wanted to cover was Journal pages.           

So I hope there is enough categories that please you, you can pick ANY 3

If you want to 'Challenge' yourself further go for 3 in a row.     

Whatever you choose have fun with if, I am excited to see what you all create.


I hope that those of you that are under the weather will start feeling better, gentle hugs are on their way 🤗 ❤️ 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx
