Taking It Easy...

As I said in an earlier post May was a busy eventful month.  Along with the previously mentioned celebrations of a 70th Birthday and DD#3'S 21st Birthday I have had a visit to hospital.  As DD was 21 (a multiple of 3) it was time for my routine smear - however my GP discovered what she thought was a cyst on my ovary so a couple of weeks later - an ultrasound - and yes it was confirmed, 9 days later off to the Gynecologist and 12 days later (29 May) off to hospital for removal of ovaries.  So with good reports of no 'nasties' I am now on the road to recovery thanks to the wonderful support of family and friends.

I/we have been so grateful for meals, baking, gifts of flowers and cards and two days this week visitors putting wood on the fire while DH was away.  One certainly has to 'take it easy' as I am finding out after such a surgery.  The only time I have ventured to the scrap room is to watch DD create some pages.  

Our house is definitely looking brighter with all these beautiful flowers in the middle of winter.
 And I have received so much pleasure from these beautiful cards.
The gorgeous card was made by Bronwyn and delicious baking by Rachel who also made amazing chocolate truffles but these were too tempting and were opened before the photo shoot.  Papers on the card are Prima.
So cute....
 Joanne  from Embellish It created and gave me this gorgeous card also made with Prima papers.  
... and the insides.
and the back.

Well I am feeling very pampered and totally looked after.  Thank you everyone.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Until next time....

Sorry to hear you needed surgery, but glad to hear it went well. Here's wishing you a good, healthy, speedy recovery.

What a bugger about Lady wonder you were livid.
