Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well, my relaxing sunday wasn't quite the relaxing day I had hoped for as I spend a few hours in Urgent Care, I have been feeling achy and rough for a few days, unable to get a decent night sleep etc but couldn't put my finger on what was wrong, I went to bed on Saturday evening, I was exhausted as we had prepared a big roast as Flynn was home but had to be back on ship Sunday night, Lucy had asked if we could have roast on Saturday instead, so that's what we did, I felt really uncomfortable, almost bloated, but tried to get some sleep, which didn't happen, I was up about 3am that's when I discovered I had the dreaded UTI, my back was really aching too, so I thought it may have gone to my kidneys, I went back to bed and laid waiting until a reasonable time to wake Paul, I then rang 111 and the lady made an appointment for us at Urgent Care department at the Great Western in Swindon so we set off for the 10.45 appointment, we discovered then that it isn't an appointment, it's basically an 'arrival time ' you then have to wait and wait, I got excited when we were called but that was only triage, so back we went to wait another hour, although the triage nurse told us we were next! We saw a lovely Nurse Practitioner, who was very thorough, she decided to treat for Kidney infection rather than just UTI, so Cefalexin antibiotics, which us what I had back in july, she has sent sample away and i have to call to check that I am on the correct antibiotic on Tuesday, they made me feel really rough last time, and 4 hours after taking first 500mg dose I already have a sore tunmy! I have bought some Kefir, which is Fermented Milk drink, it has way more good bacteria than the probiotic 'yakult' type yoghurts, hopefully that will help ease the discomfort.
I was planning to do some crafting yesterday while Paul was in the garden, but I was shivering most of the day, I did find an inky background that I had made a few weeks ago, so I stamped this 'Arty' Woodware stamp straight onto it, added clear embossing powder and heat set, I love how shiny and perfect embossing makes the ink. I cut the bottom off of the stamped image in an attempt to straighten the stamping, I think the watercolour paper wasn't straight to start with which didn't help! I matted and layered with black and white, I think I will incorporate this piece into a journal rather than make it into a card.
Sorry its not a very inspiring piece, I do need to make more inky backgrounds though, they are great to have as a stand by.
I hope that you all have a marvelous Monday,
Love you all lots,
