Still around

Just to update my blogging friends that I'm still around but at this stage haven't anything to put on my blog. I've been doing convention swaps and last weekend was spent at Mt Tamborine at a Craft Retreat. Wow, didn't we have a wonderful time. Jean, Jane, Kerry, Bethel and I all went shopping on the Friday at 2 different papercraft shops. We had a ball. Then four of us, not Bethel unfortunately, went on to Mt Tamborine where Kim had organised our retreat. Just imagine, crafting all weekend, all meals prepared for you and nothing to do but enjoy yourself. Well we did enjoy ourselves.
I spent last week up at Sue and Robyn's shop in Sarina with the intention of breaking the back of my convention swaps. I've done it too!!! Nearly 80 swaps finished and still 3 weeks to go until convention.
Everything was going too well I suppose. Saturday morning, I hurt my back. So that was that. I couldn't participate in Anzac Day which to me is so important. The two loaves of bread that I had to make into sandwiches for the morning tea were done sitting down and took three times as long to do because I had to have a break in between each sandwich. Thankfully Charlie helped me with them.
I'm managing to sit here at the computer at the moment, but any sudden moves are agony.
It's so very frustrating not being able to move around like I want to and really brings into prospective how well off one really is when healthy.
Happy crafting everyone.

Leigh,

90 swaps. OMG I can't even think of doing that many. Well good luck. Enjoy convention. I hope you have a great time. I want to hear all about it when you get back from it all. I am so sorry to hear you have hurt yourself. I hope you get back in the swing of things soon.
