This pic was supposed to be my entry for WOYWW but as it is now Friday and my desk doesn't look like that, I guess I won't be entering!
You can just about see the Easter / Eostre bonnet I made for L's Bonnet Parade. There were some amazing creations, many involving the use of a Hobbycraft straw hat. Ours was made from a hat kit from Poundland, egg boxes, old cardstock and last years mini eggs!
This week also, I finally got around to finishing a couple of the layouts that I almost completed at the crop - (the one good thing about no internet is that I get more ACTUAL scrapping done!)
This one "Isabella-Grace @1" used the 4x6 photo love sketch from Shimelle for March and has worked so well that I'll definitely use it again. The spotty paper was a perfect match for her hat and aside from the almost invisible title, I'm actually really pleased with it, which makes a nice change!
So the first of the miracles was that I finally felt well enough to do some crafting! After weeks of nasty headaches, I had forgotten what it felt like to be normal! I visited an osteopath this week who basically pummelled me about and told me off about my posture but we're hoping this helps to relieve the headaches a bit. She identified that in all likeliness I have 2 extra ribs at the top which means there is little room for the nerves and it is easier for them to get trapped and irritate etc. Something I might have to think about in the future as I can have them removed if they continue to aggravate.
The recent lack of exercise won't be helping my posture either but this week I did a marathon session of new aerobics classes at a trial event. I worked out for over 3 hours in total (another miracle!) doing Zumba, Bollywood, Pilates and Body Combat. It was great fun apart from the blisters from all the jumping!
But the first miracle of the week was that even after all that cake, I still managed to lose 1.5lb at Slimming World! I cant say I'm confident about this week though as despite that huge workout, I've been gorging on white bread and chocolate buttons and we're doing some wonderful things this weekend.
Hopefully if we can keep connected to the outside world, I can tell you all about it next week. Enjoy the lovely sunshine if you are lucky enough to have it!
Bye for now xx
