Many apologies for not being here to announce the winner of my candy. There were 19 entries with Mr Linky - but as I've no idea how to get him to pick a winner I've shouted out to Jason to chose a number - and he chose #10 - that's DAISYCHAIN - congratulations! Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your address etc and I'll get the prize posted off to you.
And the reason for my absence - well I've had a little accident. After a lovely day meeting up with friends in Bodmin at the Art Stamps Cornwall show (ages ago now it seems), and a beautifully sunny BH weekend, I was pottering in the garden on BH Monday and took a tumble. My new neighbour heard my screams and dialled 999 thinking it was something serious - a lovely paramedic chap turned up and diagnosed two sprained ankles, severe bruising to my left knee which might indicate soft tissue damage .. ..? and lots of other bruises. The following day I had to visit the Drs surgery for a routine BP check before I could get my repeat HRT prescription and I was worried as it had been high in the past and they said if it hadn't come down then I couldn't continue with my magic pills - well down it certainly has come - too low now so no wonder I've been feeling tired and dizzy a lot of the time! And as for the rash - it's not what they thought it was, but the doctor has no idea what it is so I am having lots of blood tests and in the mean time have steroid cream .. .. ah well at least everything is free now I've reached the magical age of 60! As soon as I'm feeling OK again I'll be back with you - I have new dies and stamps I'm longing to play with!
