...I'm wandering round the house after dozing off and waking myself up
snoring... not sure what I want to do with myself.
Colds, or flus or nasty, nasty bug things do that, I'm working out.
If I was young my bro would say 'Stop being such a GIRL!'
I really should 'man up'...but sexist talk asides, this is one doozy
of a bug Tom passed on to me. AND kept for himself as well.
So, not looking after grandkids. Can't even look after us properly.
I'm still shaking at times and sweating at others. Currently sweating.
Too much information? I'd like to know how a body can manage
to drip and drop sweat from eyes and noses and mouths and pores
and still stay slightly mostly alive.
So, I'm wandering around when I found myself looking at photos of
TWO layouts that I've gotten published in JOT MAGAZINE this issue.
Highly pleased & of course, I took screen shots so I could pop them into
my brag album that no-one has seen. Or ever likely to see. Maybe I should
call it a record album. But they're not for playing music. Hahaa. A joke.
Actually, Sandra has seen it 'cos I finished #1 & thought that was enough,
but she convinced me to keep it going.
Anyways. Then I thought about how I usually get published in SBM.
For non-Aussies, that's SCRAPBOOKING MEMORIES magazine.
And I realised despite my whingy and whiney state, that I really am
BLESSED in my scrapping.
This is one of my entries into 2016 SBM Master's competition. I was delighted
to get Honorable Mentions in 3 out of the 4 categories, I think it was:)
If you want to see the others, let me know....
Sure, I put myself out there & get lots
of rejections, but I'm thick skinned [except for this gruesome cold].
Today is supposed to be an Ollie day. But I can't even think straight
for myself let alone a 2 yr old. So I'm missing the boy...
Mum's home from her hip op, having community care & all that;
she is walking a bit more easily each day & hopes the pain will soon ease.
Tom is not good. The cataract is though, he's off for #2 later this month.
So, thank YOU for your kind comments, ever faithful support & prayers
both here & on FB.....
We. Are. Surviving.
Sorry I've got behind on commenting myself. Can only do a little & then
it all becomes too much. I'm sure I'll be back.......
here's something I did a whiles back to end with, because it would be awful
to do a post with no 'new' layout included!!!
Well, to be honest I'm not sure if I've put it up here or not.
But anyways....it's my step Grand Girl celebrating Chrissy in Europe.
What an experience!
Working with those diagonal bits of paper is always a challenge, eh?
Especially if you want to do multi photos....but challenges.
My bread and butter [winks!].
Flowers, yes, indeedy...
And hearts and sequins and little word stickers I made myself...
And even a spotty resin bow.....
Yes, Christmas. I need to get cracking with those Chrissy cards.
Sadly behind on them. Sadly behind on lots of stuff.
Oh well....off to have a wee rest now.
Take care, keep WELL wherever you are in this big wide world
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
