What a week!!!!

Hi every one,  Its been a painful and frustrating week.  Staples are out, all 28 of them, how painful was that, and I've had a suspected DVT in my lower leg.  Panic panic!!!!!  Luckily I slept through most of the week in a drug induced state, which was a bonus.  Anyway, today thankfully the inflammation seems to have gone down a little and the pain is not so bad so fingers crossed things will improve over the next few days, and I'll be able to get about again.

  5. Morning Clare, I was so upset to read your Blog today, you must have been in such pain, notwithstanding having all 28 staples pulled out, it makes me shiver to think about it, then to be told about the DVT, thankfully like you say, you have been drugged up for most of the time. Sounds absolutely awful, hopefully that will be the worst over with, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Saw your April page on G45, it is absolutely gorgeous, I love everything about it, and the 'bunnies' are divine.

    I have booked a place on your retreat in January and got my train tickets, can't wait, here's hoping you will feel well enough.

    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia, thanks for the lovely message. I think what went on last week is all quite normal but I did feel really down as I'd felt quite good during the first few days out of hospital. On a positive note my lovely leg !!! is not anywhere near as painful today and it looks like the swelling is slowly going down leaving me feeling much brighter today. I saw your comments on the G45 blog thanks for being an avid follower :-) I'm so excited your coming to the retreat , It will be really lovely to meet you. Have a great rest of your Sunday. Big hugs from me xx

  6. Ouch 28 staples and suspected DVT - you poor thing, you haven't had a good time of it but hopefully you are improving daily and it will all be worth it in the end. Take care of yourself and don't try to rush things - it doesn't work !!!

    1. Hi Tam, lovely to hear from you. It got to me last week but I'm sure its all part of the recovery process. I'm feeling much brighter today. Maybe I'm wanting to run before I can walk ....... which I can't do, and your right it doesn't work lol.. We had a laugh when the nurse took out the staples. Oli my 19 year old watched and thought it was highly amusing when, after the first couple I flinching before the nurse pulled each one out. He even offered to hold my hand which he hasn't done that for about 12 years!!!! Have a good rest of your weekend and speak soon. Hugs C x

  10. Oh, dear, Clare...so sorry! Thank God for drugs to take you (temporarily) away from the pain...but I know they are a sort of two edged sword! Rest, rest, rest, and heal. Praying for a better week for you next week.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
