So to take my mind off things I'm going to show you the swap postcards I've received recently.
First the 'Cake Swap' there were only 3 of us in this swap I showed you my version previously now here is Jacquie and Valerie's versions.
|Valerie;s card has some wonderful fancy cakes on it. Could just do with one right now but got to watch the old glucose levels.|
|I love Jacquie's unique take on the swap theme and might even try out the recipe.|
|Top card is Jacquies and the bottom one is from Alice. Jacquie has used free motion stitching and ribbon on her card whilst Jacquie has explored the stitches available on her machine.|
Now back to the present and I've just remembered I haven't packed my Kindle, also want to pack an Ipod so I can listen to a book when I can't sleep at night. I find hospital beds so uncomfortable and usually there is a light on somewhere, I'm used to sleeping in the dark. At the moment I'm listening to Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody series, got to the "Lord of the Silent" so far. I just love the whole Emmerson family sometimes Amelia sounds just like my mum. Reading on the Kindle one of Paul Doherty's 'Sorrowful Tales of Brother Athelstan' series.
Better go and make a cuppa and a sandwich before I phone the hospital and I have to be in by 2:30pm and the traffic can be heavy at this time of the day. Speak soon.
