It's such a shame that the good weather is forecast to end today with a weekend of rain ahead of us, I missed out on most of the sunshine yesterday (not that I sit in sun anyway) but I do enjoy being out in the garden when the weather is lovely, we have a swing seat in the shade at the top of the garden, its so lovely to sit up there and listen to the birds. As I was saying yesterday ended up being a lay on the bed fan on full with my knee raised to try and get swelling to go down, we went to cinema on Wednesday evening and were in a different screen to the one we usually book, I chose the seats with easiest access but I didn't realise when I booked that it had a step up to it, getting up wasn't so bad as there was a hand rail in front of the seat and Paul held on to me, but getting down I must have misjudged the edge of the step and landed awkwardly, it didn't hurt too much at the time but my goodness did it throb through the night, by 3am I had taken every painkiller I was able to, the night was uncomfortable enough with the heat, thankfully Paul was able to change his day at the office to today so that he could stay home and help me as the girls were both working too. I was so relieved that he did because Milo must have felt sorry for me and decided he would bring me a nice big mouse to cheer me up, I wouldn't have been able to do much anyway but being stuck leg up with a mouse running around the bedroom would have been an absolute nightmare, it was a lively little thing too, Paul was chasing it all over the place, eventually wrangling it into a box in the lounge!
Lilian's Colour Challenge
When I was asking for Challenge ideas last week Lilian suggested a Colour Challenge, the first of the two suggestions was Yellow, Green & Blue.
So I had a very quick look through my card files not expecting to find much but the cards above are just the first of many, it's a lovely combination of colours that we can make work for any occasion or Gender.
You can of course add other colour in as long as those three are the main focus. I will also say that the 'Yellow' can be switched for Gold, (I mean it is very similar anyway) and would be helpful for anyone wanting to start Christmas cards!! It is only 27 weeks to the big day you know.!!
Thank you so much Lilian for suggesting a challenge idea, I can't wait to see what everyone creates. xxx
Enjoy your day Ladies, it's going to be far too warm for 'swear wording ' so make the most of the sun, you can vacuum in the rain tomorrow!
Love and huge hugs to all of you,
