Lots of thank yous today - firstly to Marlene and Cherie (I think it's Cherie, you didn't include your name) for sending me lots of lovely card making bits and pieces - greetings, toppers, shapes, all sorts. Very kind friends - you're not just bloggers, you're all really kind and thoughtful internet friends. And that also goes to all of you who have sent lovely sentiments about my Mum, both via comments and emails, they're so uplifting.
Also thanks for the kind comments about my first effort at cardmaking. It's not perfect by any means, but the design came out just as I'd anticipated and I was pleased with it, as I'm sure Mum will be. As Mum's eyesight is poor, she won't notice the faults on it anyhow! I'm making a few more today, that first one took me an hour, hopefully I'll speed up the more I make.
As for my urine test results...I've been ringing the surgery every couple of days, they tell me each time that these particular tests are quite involved and do take time. I googled, just out of interest, and it seems they're right, 3 weeks isn't uncommon, one person even had to wait 6 weeks for theirs. I guess a lot depends on how busy and backed up the path lab is in your area. I'll just have to be patient. Been spoilt, I suppose, with the speedy results for blood tests here - we get results for those the very next day.
A dear friend sent me a link yesterday to a die cutter being sold by Aldi in their Specialbuys this coming Sunday (thanks TA x). It's a mini one for beginners, comes with some supplies and an instruction manual (good!) and costs just £19.99. I shall probably get it - I don't suppose it's perfect, but for a beginner's one I can't really go wrong at that price.
Got the dentist this afternoon - it's only a check up but I'm hating the thought of going, with my gum disease I'm always worried she's going to say she can't save my teeth and they'll all have to come out!
