Hi folks, it's been a while since I've written a blog post, but things have been rather uncomfortable for me of late. I've really struggled since I had my teeth sorted out, and had to make a couple of trips back to the Dentist. Thankfully, everything is now on the mend, and although I'm not eating crunchy foods yet, I am getting back to normal.
I have had a frozen shoulder for the past few months, which has been really painful. It has kept me awake at night, and caused me a lot of trouble. Yesterday, I had a procedure carried out which hopefully will free up the shoulder socket, and give me more movement. It wasn't pleasant, and I have had two lots of physiotherapy since. I need to do four lots of exercises a day, and keep everything moving now, or the whole process will have been for nothing. Fingers crossed I won't need to have surgery and will be back to normal soon. It makes me very aware that I'm not getting any younger, as my body keeps giving me these signs that it is not working as efficiently as it was when I was in my twenties. Heaven help me when I get to my Mum's age!
In spite of the tooth trouble, and the shoulder problems, I am still managing to get some crafting done! I have posted details of a card using some great new Easter themed stamps from Chocolate Baroque over on the Design Team Blog today. It uses some great Spring colours, yellow and purple. I made the card while I was staying at my Mum's recently, and even cadged a piece of ribbon from her crafty stash!
I can't eat chocolate, as it gives me migraines, but I love this time of year, buying Easter eggs for the rest of my family. Wouldn't you love to get an egg that looked like this?
I will try to be back on Friday with a Forgotten Friday post, poorly shoulder permitting. It may be something simple if I'm not up to much, so please bear with me if that is the case. Thanks for stopping by, xx
