I've been poked and prodded

Hi All

Visited the hospital yesterday for my pre op, I was poked and prodded, I had my bloods done. 4 x-rays. ECG and my lungs tested and I am happy to say I passed with flying colours, so it looks like the op is on, date for this is the 9th, I was told I will be staying in overnight and they will have a high dependency bed available if I need it, but as I am having nerve blocks the chances of needing this is small. I will not be bale to use my arm for 3 weeks and then it physio. So it finally looks like it will happen.

A bit of news about my sister in law, she is now going to have a course of chemotherapy, they have given her a 25-30% chance of this working, thank you for all your prayers, we are continuing to pray and to hope this will work, sometimes in life you need a miracle and this is one of those times.

Did not do anything yesterday in my mini world, I was at the hospital for over 3 hours, we then went out for lunch, so by the time I came back it was a bit late to start anything. I was so proud of myself though, I have got myself a new food processor and I baked a cake, now those that know me, know cakes are not something I do as they tend to come out like pancakes, but not this one, It was lovely, it was so big it only just fitted in the cake tin, the family loved it. I keep joking and saying watch out  next year I may end up in the Great British bake off.

Well of for a shower, it spray tan day,

Shoes and more shoes, I am getting addicted

Hi All

yes I missed the free listing, I did not notice it till late Monday evening, bummer, never mind gave me a chance to sort it all out.
When sorting out my workroom I found stuff that I am not using so will be putting them on as well and then my son came through with some bits for me to put on, so maybe it was a good thing I missed the free listing as my list has got very big.

I seem to be developing an addiction to shoes, I mean the mini ones, although you had better not look in my wardrobe!! anyway I have been busy adding my touch to the mini shoes, I have some in metal and plastic, it is very fiddly to paint them, you can only do a little bit then you have to wait for them to dry, good job I am a patient person and enjoy challenges.

Have a look

I have my appointment tomorrow with the pre op nurse, yes I have a date for my arm op, 9th September, just hope nothing goes wrong this time, I will be having it done with nerve blocks, it was considered that it was to dangerous for me to have a general aesthetic, 
The hospital was good I had told them I would not have anything done until after the wedding, I got the call from the secretary on Friday, so she could arrange the date.
I am getting really excited now, Thursday I have my spray tan, the main reason for this is due to my circulation problem my legs are a lovely mottled blue and brown, not a nice look so I am hoping the spray tan will disguise this.
Well I am off, making shoe boxes now, is there a help line for my addiction?

How does this happen?

Hi all

yes how does this happen? yesterday I went into my work room and wanted a small piece of card!! started to look and I ended up sorting out boxes, rearranging, dumping and tidying my work room, it took me 2 hours, and I only wanted a bit of card!! it must of been catching as my son decided to clear out his room as well, now this only happens once in a blue moon and what usually happens he just moves stuff about and calls it done, not this time, clothes were thrown out, rubbish was got rid of and he even returned crockery to be washed up. it now looks like a bedroom and the floor is cleared, forgot what colour his carpet was, lets hope this is a sign of things to come.

My son rang Friday night and the conversation started off " mum I need to find some boxes shabby chic style to wrap the ties and hankies in for the wedding gifts, I am looking for old cigar boxes, do you know where I can find them? " like a fool I said I have some like that in my photo album, now you know what is going to happen next, " wow do you think you could print them for me?" yes I replied, " lovely he said I need 7, I will be back on Friday and will bring the ties round, do you think you could wrap them for me and label them with old tags?
Still not sure how it all happened, but I now have to make 7 cigar boxes and wrap them,
see what I mean about how does that happen?

I spent some of the weekend taking and sorting picture's of my recent work, I was getting them ready to go on ebay, they usually have free listing on bank holidays, but sod's law, no free listing this weekend, never mind I now have everything sorted and ready to go.

I finished my minis and carried on with making my shoes, they are very fiddly and time consuming. Today I hope to start on the shop itself, I thought I had better do that before I get carried away with making items to go in it, I usually end up with so much stuff and it will not all fit in the shop, so I will be making a plan of what I want inside it and how things will be laid out. well that's the plan, just hope I do not get distracted and end up doing something different.

have a look at the finished minis

the drawers are filled with personal papers
