All I can say is hooray for sunshine, it's amazing what a difference it makes to how I feel. Today is the first day all week where I've managed to get up before 11a.m. I know that sounds incredibly lazy but I'm not going to make excuses, it's just how my body is coping at the moment. Anyway to make up for it today I got up at 7:30 and plaited my hubbies beard for him before he went to work. Then I made dinner for tonight, washed the dishes and now have two loads of laundry drying outside. How fantastic is that seeing as it was snowing only a few days ago?
I also have some other news. I've finally been given a diagnosis as to what's wrong with me. That's right, it turns out I'm not some hypochondriac who's been making stuff up. The MRI I had just after Christmas proves it. I have a condition called adenomyosis. I'll be totally honest now and say that this condition has made my life utterly miserable for the last two and a half years. Also, as you might guess from my absences from blogland the condition has had a considerable impact on my life, increasingly so in the last few months. I think it's quite easy to dismiss painful periods, I put up with them for 24 years. However, when you're in pain for 3 out of 4 weeks of your cycle and your actual period is so painful you can barely stand nevermind be all "Bodyform" and go out skydiving, it's almost impossible to express what a relief it is to know that you don't have to suffer anymore. Sure, it probably would have helped if the people treating me had listened a bit more carefully to what I was saying rather than dismissing me. I'm not going to go on a rant about that though, I'm going to stay as positive as I can. So in the next few months no doubt I'll disappear from time to time but I can finally see a brighter horizon.
I'm going to share a card I made for my sister-in-law today. I have to admit I've just discovered how truly awesome Inchies are. I've always seen them in magazines and thought they looked great but never made any until the other night. I love the fact that now my stamps can go even further and look fresh, I know I'm late on the uptake - hence the title of this post.
I admit to not knowing which companies (bar the DI's) made the items I used for this card - sorry. DI's used were Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.
This should be the last of my poor quality photos as I got my memory card back the other day.
I shall be trying out using Inchies again in the very near future no doubt. Well that's it from me, thanks for popping by and I hope that you're having a great day today.
