Thank you so much to those people who sent cards and good will messages following my back operation last Friday. It will still be some weeks before I know if it's been a success or not, and there's still part two to come at the beginning of December when they de-nerve the other side of my back. As it was over an hour of needles, electric currents and extreme discomfort, I can't say I'm looking forward to it. The upside was that because we have a back-pain GP unit at the Dunedin independent hospital locally, I had five-star treatment and a private room with en-suite bathroom!! Lunch was a prawn marie-rose salad, with a lovely strawberry tart and cream, and a cafetiere of decaff, which was some consolation for the unpleasantness of the operation.
I always have lots of birthday cards to make at this time of the year with several of them masculine cards, which I find quite challenging. These La Pashe vintage style cards are always popular though, and I even quite enjoy sitting, cutting out the decoupage bits: it makes the boring programmes on tv a bit more bearable. Why is it that with hundreds more channels, we still can't find anything decent to watch? It's a mystery!
These "flipping cards are good fun too, with the reversed image on the inside, and all that's needed is a suitable insert. The guys all seem to like them, and is solves the perennial problem of what to choose.
Thanks very much for visiting my blog and for any comments you'd like to leave. I really do appreciate this, and like to come and visit your blog too. xx Jill
