tell me something.... why is it, if anything is gonna go wrong it always happens when Graham is offshore. I have a never ending list of disasters and emergencies that have happened as soon as Graham goes offshore. Probably the most memeorable being Faith's birth - with him offshore, and my contractions 5 minutes apart, the maternity hospital still wouldn't let me call an ambulance! Anyway, the latest drama here happened last night. I was out in the garden with the dog after teatime and stood on a bit of log roll that surrounds an area of the garden that's covered in bark. Well, was there not a 3 inch nail sticking out of it??
So after a few sweary words, I got it pulled out of my foot.
I phoned NHS 24 and told them all about it when they called me back. The lassie told me I had to go to A&E for a tetanus shot just to be on the safe side. But I explained the problem that I had 3 kids and my man was offshore, so she told me to get there within 36 hours.
After a bit of humming and haaing - I finally got my mum and dad to come in and watch the kids for me today. So they arrived with my nephew Kyle, and dad drove me up to the hospital. The nail went into my left foot and I didn't think I'd be able to use the clutch in the car.
Only had to wait an hour and a half to be seen so it wasn't too bad. I got my tetanus shot and enough antibiotics to start my own pharmacy.
But its still throbbing and I can't put any weight on that foot, but hey-ho, just have to get on with it. Especially as the 4 kids made a pretty good job of trashing my house while I was away
Pepsi is getting back to her usualy cheeky self, and she's starting to put more weight on her healing leg. I was a bit concerned that she didn't seem to be eating much, so I gave her some cooked chicken the other day and it lasted all of 0.3 seconds so I don't think there's anything wrong with her appetite.
So, to finish today's post I thought I'd share a couple more of the samples I made up for last week's demo day. I've also got an Acceptance card to share with you, but I'll leave that for another day. I'm hoping to fit in a few challenges this week too, have made a start on a card for the Sugar Bowl and want to do one for Penny Black Saturday now that I've figured out how to colour the hedgie stamps with promarkers.
Have a great weekend everyone
I coloured a bunch of ribbon scraps of all different textures with various pink and purple promarker shades, then stuck them to a scrap of card before cutting the butterfly shape out with a sizzix die and stuck on some gems - thought it was a pretty cute way to use up some scraps.
