Wednesday 11 July 2012


For once it seems to have been a long week since last Wednesday because I've been really poorly and in a lot of pain which has made the days and nights seem endless. When I wrote up last week's WOYWW post, I said that I had pain in my face and jaw. Well, having been to the dentist and had xrays to establish whether there was anything wrong (and there wasn't), I had an appointment to go back to the doctor to try and get to the bottom of why I felt so awful and in so much pain. During the day last Wednesday I began to get lumps and bumps on my chin and by the time I went to see the doctor there was a rash up to my eye and beyond. The doctor then realised that I had shingles. It is the most painful condition and something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy (not that I've got any - lol!).

Anyway, the purpose of this post is for today's WOYWW 163 to show what's on my desk. I've been trying to do a bit of crafting to try and take my mind off the pain, but haven't felt like doing anything that requires much thought or creativity, so I resorted to using a kit that just happened to come in the post a few days ago - My Craft Studio everyday essentials.

You can see the little piles of the different sections of the kit sorted ready to make some more cards.

You can also see three Stampotique Christmas stamps that I got with a voucher I won from Crazy 4 challenges a while ago.

And this is my desk to the right of where I sit - you can see quite a few cards that I've made with the MCS kit - some have been blogged, but some need to have bits finished off - so I feel I've achieved something this week even if I haven't felt up to much.

I started off last week with visiting other WOYWWers, but, unfortunately, became too poorly to do so for the rest of the week. Thanks to everyone who visited me and left comments and for all the get well wishes.
