Good afternoon folks i hope you are all well and keeping warm,i was off Christmas shopping this morning but hubby said to leave it today because of the weather as we now have bucket loads of snow, i have to try and get all my Christmas shopping done in the next couple of days as we have a very busy week coming up with my hospital appointments my dear friends baby grandson Jay's funeral and then our son Aaron's wedding to his lovely girlfriend Lauren! at last a happy occasion, the hospital have said that if he is very sensible he can have his plaster off for the wedding and they will redo it afterwards for him, he is still having trouble with his leg but the drs are hopeful that it will get better as when he was stabbed they have cut through nerves and that's what is causing the problem he is still having trouble sleeping so they have given him some stronger sleeping tablets.
Anyways i have a couple of cards for you two very simple cards which is unusual for me but i quite like them the first one is one of the lovely stamps that Teresa at Crafts and Me is now stocking she's called Melody the one i've used is Melody shopping and she is so pretty if you are registered for the News letter but you don't have long left so be quick.I'm also entering it into the Friday Sketchers challenge.

The second card is another using the lovely Lili of the Valley James the bears he's so sweet isn't he

I'm also entering this card in to the the Lili of the Valley challenge.

I'm off the decorate another tree now and thanks for looking and any comments you leave.

Take care luv gina xx

Roll on the New Year

Good morning folks i cant wait for this year to be over and done with! i have not been about the past few days as some rotten scum bags stabbed and beat my darling son with an iron bar and boy i would love to get hold of them there were seven of them the police have caught two of them the others were wearing halloween masks they are being charged with attempted murder. One of the stab wounds narrowly missed his spinal cord so he is a very lucky man indeed the drs told him that being a big fellow saved his life he is now home but in quite alot of pain and can barely walk and he has to go back in to have surgery on his hand as some of the bones are shattered the drs couldn't believe that nothing else was broken at least he is getting his op done at a more local hospital as he was rushed to the Royal London, i still cant really believe what has happened you never think it will happen to you so i'm sorry if you are one of the peeps that have emailed me in the last few days i am gradually getting round to them. I would like to thank all my teamies that have supported me this week too thank you girls.
Now to top it all mil has had another fall so she now has stitches and bumps and bruises roll on 2011.

Normal service will resume soon. luv gina xx
