Another week

Another week gone by and another month nearly, I can't believe it.  Last week was sad but Dad had a lovely send off , we had  time remembering all the good times we had shared with him. It was nice to see Mums family again after about 5 years, it's a pity it was under sad circumstances.

I hope you all had a good week. I have had a busy week, catching up with the dreaded washing, loads of ironing and housework. Mind you we have had some sunshine so that cheered me up, and it's definately a bonus.
Also had a lovely weekend with my grandaughter, her daddy was working last night so it was a real treat to keep her up a bit and have a snuggle in front of the tv. That was after she had worn me out playing with her dolls house and all her dogs out of her vets, I have to do all the voices for them. Thats mighty difficult when there is about twenty different ones, plus the dolls. It was lovely I got to put her to bed and read her two chapters of her book. The Faraway tree, she's only six but she is great at reading, she doesn't really need me to read the words,  she's good at very difficult words too. When I go down stairs she sneeks her torch on and reads abit more by herself if she doesn't feel tired.
Yesterday and today I have managed to get some crafting  in, so have some cards to show you.

I am trying to use some of my papers  up and images, I've got loads of them, I think they breed when I go to bed. Plus one of my friends gave me some of hers to use up.
I'm off  to the hospital for a check in with my oncolagist on Wednesday. It's just to see how I'm going on they don't want to give me any treatment until about October. To be honest I don't think there's much they can do. I am trying a Ketogenic diet that's from America, they have done some research over there and they think that sugar and carbohydrates help the cancer to breed. So I have cut them out, you just eat Turkey, chicken,, cabbage, spinach, sprouts, fish. I also can't have dairy so I drink Almond milk and have managed to find some lactose free cheese as I need my calcium for my bones. Your also not allowed any fruit. I think the things I miss most are toast , yoghurt, rice and couscous..  It's very boring and hard to keep to.
Mind you there's one good thing I've lost two stone.  I only have two meals a day and loads of water.
Well I'm off to tidy up and get to bed. See you later in the week. Thank you for dropping by.
Happy crafting, love and crafty hugs xxx Chris

Well I'm being a very poor blogger this year, theirs always something getting in the way at the moment.

Last week I had a foot appointment for a fitting for new insoles to be made. I also was out all day Saturday as myself and 6 friends to the Sincerely Show at Leigh. We had a lovely time and got some lovely goodies. Although I must say I was disappointed with some of the stalls. Never mind we have another show at the end of May.
I've been crafting in fits and starts in between trying to catch up on housework.
My first card was made for my friend Sheleigh    it was her birthday the other week before we all went out.

The next cards were all made with some of my goodies from the show.

This card I made for Easter for my daughter, she loved rabbits when she was younger. So hoping she likes this one.

This card I made for my Son who's birthday is today. " Happy Birthday to you."

The last card is one that we don't enjoy making, a sympathy card.

This week will be a sad week as I lost my lovely friend and adopted  Dad of thirty years. 

God Bless you Dad you will never be forgotton.
Love you always.

I am off to the funeral in the middle of the week. I doubt if I will get on again before next weekend.

Sorry I've not visited your blogs lately, I will try next week. Happy crafting  and thanks for dropping by.
