Hope you're all well and have a lovely day whatever you are up to. I'm starting to feel more like my old self, thank you for your get well wishes on my comments, so thoughtful. We had our new 3 piece suite delivered on Wednesday, it's taking some getting used to it as it's very firm compared to our old one which is piled up in the conservatory waiting to picked up veery soon I hope. We also went carpet shopping on Thursdsay so that's all ordered now too. It should be just over 2 weeks until it can be fitted so I'll be well out  of the way in Hospital recovering from my Bowel operation. I'll come hope to some nice home comforts to recuperate in,I hope!!!! It's all happening in the John's Household.

Butterflies

Hi all,
Wow it's been a beautiful day here in East Riding of Yorkshire. Hope it's been lovely wherever you've been today. I've had my sheets out blowing on the line. I decided to have a little play this afternoon with my Indigo Blu stamps.  It feels like somethings not quite right about the card but my friend Sheila encouraged me to blog it. Hubby wasn't keen on it either. Maybe it's because I'm still not feeling so good with my latest chest infection that started last week. I'm barking like a dog and keeping my legs crossed a lot... Ha ha, so attractive eh.

I've had a lovely few days. First my friends Sheila and Tom popped to see me on Sunday which was lovely as I've not seen them for a few months. Later on that day my dad came to see me and we had a good catch up. On Monday my Sister in law popped early in the afternoon to see us all. She is over from South Africa and I've not seen her for nearly 2 years. It was so nice. I've never been so sociable.

My MRI scan was clear which was amazing news and so was my latest mammogram. Keep healthy everyone. Nice to get some good news.  Thank you for your lovely comments as always.

Flowers and lots of purple...

Morning all,

It's time for a new challenge over at Ruby's Rainbow and it's Vickie's turn to choose the theme this time which is:
'The earth laughs in flowers'

So I dug out 1 of my freebie large flower stamps out and inked up the background stamp. Hope you like it.

We'd love to see your creations, so why not pop over to:
and get some inspiration from the fab teamies.

Challenges:

Thank you for your good luck wishes for my bowel procedure which was on Monday. You are very kind. Everything was going well until the consultant realised that due to the adhesions from my full hysterectomy last April to get rid of the cancerous ovary, he couldn't remove it after all. I need to have a little operation. At least he got a good look and we can go forward now. I felt very queer during and afterwards as my blood pressure dipped.... probably seeing my bottom on the screen again - ha ha... Well you've got to laugh otherwise we'd cry wouldn't we. Shamus took me home and I had an afternoon in my pj's on the sofa. Hubby, Shannen and Hunter the dog kept an eye on me. Also my family and lovely friends sent messages to see how I was too.  I am a lucky lady.

Hope you're all well. Thanks for popping by.
