Birthday card

Just a simple card that I have made ready for my great niece's third birthday.

At the moment I am stuck at home with a bad back! I can't bend down, sit or stand for any length of time, and it is driving me nuts!! A week ago I bent down to pick something up from the floor, and felt something 'go' in my back. My physio said that I have pulled some muscles, and gave me exercises to do and did a bit of back manipulation. They are all sadists! However, I think finally today I can see a little bit of improvement, but the pain has been horrendous. 
Crafting is a wonderful diversion 
I love my new job, but I'm feeling really bad about having to stay off work this week. I did go in a couple of days after doing my back in thinking I would get by. However my manager soon gathered something was up, and I got sent home! I've only been working there for four weeks, but they have been incredibly supportive about it all, and told me to stay off until I am fully recovered. I'm missing the job and the lovely people I work with, but hopefully I will be well enough to go back soon.


  1. The little card is sweet, and I'm sure your Niece will love it.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your back injury. Having a bad/weak back myself, I have a little idea of what you must be suffering. It sure sucks, big time. Please do take care, and I hope you are well and back to being your "old" self very soon. :)

  2. Thank you Sandie - I am feeling like a creaking gate lol! It is finally starting to improve, thank goodness, I hate being limited in what I can do. Hope you are well :-)
