"Just for You"

Hello and welcome to my little space in this wonderful world of Blogging.
Thank you all for your concern over my back.  A lot better today, I think it was more my Kidneys than my back once I got my head round the pain. I rushed out yesterday morning without the amount of water I would normally drink in the morning.  I was in such a hurry to meet up with my friends I ducked the last glass of water that was sitting waiting to be drunk.
This morning I followed John to his garage to have his car looked at.  One of the wheels was making a funny noise.  Only now and again but the car needs the 4 wheels......!!!   We knew we would have to leave it and did intend to do some shopping.  The weather was not good so we just came back home.  John will take me along to the Tearoom tomorrow, this is my Friday to work.  That way he has a car just in case he has to go somewhere.  It will not be far as mine is manual, John needs automatic for his wonky knees, so he wont use all my petrol........   Wonder what will happen in the Tearoom this Friday???   I have mastered the "coffee machine"    Last time I managed to "flood the floor"   just a little ..... hope I don`t spill soup on someone.....LOL all fun and games my day of working.

Today`s card  ended up totally different from what I had in mind when I got all the "gear" out.
I had a phone call from a friend who has had a few problems of late.  She is much better, she was happy, chatty, it just changed my mind on what I intended doing.  Funny how these things happen.

  3. another beautiful card Patricia, flowers, embossing & beautiful papers, love it.
    hope all goes well tomorrow.

  4. You make sure you keep that fluid intake up Patricia! Kidney infections can appear out of nowhere and be incredibly painful. I hope everything goes swimmingly at the tearoom tomorrow.
    Love your card, as ever. I was thinking of you today as an opportunity has come up for me to do some craft fairs with cards etc. You do so well with yours and it's clear everyone likes them. I'm going to have to make sure mine are commercial and work out how much to charge for them - oh boy, that will be a challenge in itself!
    Thanks for letting me know about your NEC arrangements. I definitely want to go but don't know which day I'll be able to do. I'll let you know if it ends up being the Friday so we can finally meet in person.
    Take care of yourself. Jenny x
