Yesterday DS phoned me to let me know that I wouldn't have to have Ruby today so I decided I was going to have a 'be kind to me day'. No heavy involved cookery, no lists to tick and no timetables to run to......apart from having hubby's tea on the table for four pm.
It has been utter bliss. Usually my morning begins anywhere between six and seven am but today I had a lie in until eight thirty, had a leisurely breakfast in front of the computer, washed up and then just pottered doing a bit of tidying, a bit of laundry, caught up with a few of the lifestyle blogs I love and then pottered a bit more. No pressure to go up and create until I felt like being creative. I had been feeling a bit run down what with the pain from my back and other stuff but WOW what a difference a day makes. Yes the back still hurts and the daily grind is there to be ground but I shall cope so much better knowing that every now and again I can give myself a day off and the world won't stop.
I think what made me do it was the fact that yesterday I went out to do the shopping and half way round Tesco I was nearly crying with pain and by the time I got home I could barely walk. Poor Mr Manic had to get his own tea before he went to work and it was about ten pm before I could get about without a walking stick. I don't think the walk around B & M Bargains after Tesco helped much.
Anyhoo.... I did have a bit of a session upstairs this evening and I managed six of the card up yonder.
Stamps are Stampendous.
Paper is Graphic 45.
I have also used Distress Inks.....Antique Linen and Vintage Photo, Alcohol Ink.....Latte to colour the button and Distress Stickles....Tea Dye for the spots on the ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by.
