I'm Back

And finally into the card making.

Hubby is 4 weeks post surgery today and is slowly getting better although has been hit by a nice dose of vertigo today poor thing. The last four weeks have been busy indeed. We had to stay in Brisbane for a week before he was able to travel then we did the 1000km journey over three days as he was in so much pain. Then when we got home we realised that we weren't set up for invalid's hehehe. Our shower is set into a spa bath which is quite high off of the ground so I have had to help him into and out of the shower as well as doing regular physio sessions with him. Along with the mowing and all the housework (obviously hubby does more around the house than I thought hehehe)I haven't had much time to play. Until yesterday. . . . . .

So here is my little dose of relaxation that I had yesterday and today - ahhhhh the heaven of just sitting and playing in my little craft room. Listening to the kiddoes playing outside with their friends. Ahhhh just me and the paper and ribbon and glitter and stamps and and and. . . . . . . . . .

oh what fun I had.

No Card making going on at the moment

All things are very quiet as far as card making at the moment. My darling husband has just had knee replacement surgery last Monday and both of us underestimated just how hard his recovery would be. The surgery went very well but having your knee cut out and and replaced with a shiny new titanium one has really been tough on him. We are still in Brisbane - 1000kms away from home and staying at Hubby's brothers place for now until he is well enough to travel. The closest thing to card making that I am doing at the moment is reading my Card Maker magazine in between my nursing duties.

Usually a trip to Brissy means I get to hit the craft shops but this time I have not even gone near one :( - I really don't need any more stuff hehe
