Another of Pat's Gorgeous Groovi Cards
Good Morning Dear Friends,
I hope that you are all well and have been enjoying the lovely sunshine, I had a super busy day yesterday, we had our hairdresser coming in the morning and the rest of the morning and half the afternoon was spent on the telephone.
I was waiting for a telephone consultation with my GP first of all, he explained my blood results and he seemed to think that I have a Viral Infection that exactly coincided with me starting the Bisoprolol, he came to this conclusion because the level of Antibodies was raised quite a bit and so was the inflammatory markers. The levels are all going in the right direction, So he has told me to start the anticoagulant immediately to reduce the risk of stroke and I have to go and have bloods again in two weeks to make sure everything has returned to normal and then start a half dose of Bisoprolol, take bloods again a week after to check levels and see how things go, fingers crossed, it will go well this time. It looks like I will also have to be referred back to the cardiologist as my AF has gotten a lot worse.
The next call I was waiting for was from our Bank and a company called 'The Divorce Manager', this was because we had had a Direct Debit set up on our account and Paul noticed that the payment was taken from the account at the end of last week. I saw who the account was payable to and panicked but Paul soon reassured me that I had nothing to worry about.
Anyway it turns out that all you need to set up a Direct Debit on somebody's account is the Sort Code and Account number, NO NAME/ADDRESS, just sort code and account number!
I was shocked that the bank had allowed this Direct Debit to be processed and paid out, it was for a considerable amount too.
What frustrated me was the fact that when I was trying to buy a blender with my card earlier this year the bank kept declining the transaction and I needed to verify and prove and lord only knows what, but its fine for a total stranger to set up a Direct Debit !!
The Divorce management place were very apologetic and confirmed that the person who's account it should have come out of had a completely different name and address as us, she was shocked that the bank had allowed it to go through. So ladies my advice to you is to check your account very closely and very often, as we can't rely on the bank!
Now to the highlight of the blog post...….. Pat's gorgeous card !
Pat, in my opinion this is one of your most beautiful Groovi cards so far, the daisies are so pretty and I love the delicate stems and leaves, you have managed to get such lovely colour into the daisies the white work is beautiful and the yellow centres really make the daisies 'pop' !
The part of the card that makes it so special is the beautiful is that stunning parchment work at the bottom, Pat you have made it look like the most delicate lace work.
It must have taken you ages to complete, what a lovely gift to give someone.
Thank you so very much for allowing me to share it with our friends. XXX
Just as I am finishing writing this blog post, Orphan Lamb number 4 has been bought home, another busy night ahead !!!
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
