I'm Back My Lovelies......

Hello all my lovelies out there how are you all? Gosh I have missed you all sooooooooooooo much & missed your wonderful creations. It seems forever since I was last on here & I'm so sorry for being AWOL for so long. I'm also sorry I've not kept up with emails I am working my way through them & I will reply as soon as I can.
The reason I've been AWOL for so long is that I've been so so ill & in so much pain more than I ever have in my life. So I'm currently going through quite a few tests & I'm at the hospital again tomorrow & then again in about a weeks time :0( My blood tests came back abnormal so they have had to be taken again blah blah blah. I'm not going to bore you with all the details............unless that is you want help with getting to sleep then believe me I could help lol.
I've actually coloured an image today my first 1 since I stopped crafting as I've been too ill to even colour never mind craft. I'm still having a lot of bad days but tbh its driving me crazy now & I need an escape on my some what better days. So I decided to start my crafting again so tonight I made a card but you will have to wait til tomorrow to see it lol!!

2 weeks ago it was my birthday & I turned the big 40, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to my crafty pals who remembered & sent me cards you have no idea how much it meant. So from the bottom of my heart thank you a bjillion times. Anyway I was still ill & spent the day in jammies.... altogether now 'Awwwwwww' lol. No I had a fabulous day I really did I dont drink anyway so not having a drink didnt bother me but I spent the day with my family which is the best thing to do on your birthday. Ben & Megan sneaked over on the sunday morning & whilst we were in bed they decorated the bungalow in banners & balloons & Craig got up before me decorated the conservatory in balloons & banners & brought me breakfast in bed. Yes I cried that they thought of this & altho it made me cry they were happy tears...........crying & laughing at the same time does not look good on someone, certainly not me lol.
Anyway I got clothes, socks (I have an addiction for socks, seriously lol) flowers, Boofle teddies who I love & I got a gorgeous pair of gold & diamond earrings off Natalie & Jake. Craig told me his pressie was coming on the thursday & when that day arrived OMG OMG OMG the best pressie ever, except for my family of course!! He brought me a 4x4 truck as he damaged my last one & it got wrote off which he has always felt guilty about so decided to buy me another one for my birthday. I will post a piccy tomorrow when I post my card. As most of you know I'm not a girly girl yes I love fashion & make-up & I dress feminine but I love football, cars, superbikes, trucks & I even love playing 'shoot em up' games on the xbox, Call Of Duty is my absolute fave lol, so this is why Craig picked a truck.  It really is the mother of all trucks & I am sooooooooooooooo incredibly lucky, I really feel honoured, blessed & so darn lucky to have the family I have they really are my everything!!!

Anyhoo I want to thank everyone who has left me comments & those that have sent emails it really means so much. I also want to thank the DT's I'm on & they have all been so incredibly patient & allowing me time off to get better I truly am on the best DT's & have the best bosses. Mmwah thank you thank you thank you for putting up with me you are truly the best!!!

Well I'm gonna go beddy byes now & relax with my Kobo, yes I've been doing a LOT of reading lately lol also I dont sleep well so my little e-reader comes in handy lol. Thank you for stopping by & for listening to me droan on, babbling as I always do lol.
Welcome to my new followers & I will pop by your blogs over the next few days & follow you 7 leave you a comment. Hope I manage to inspire you in some way altho my wee skills have dropped a lot lol.......I need to practice again I really do lol.

Toodles my lovelies take care & god bless you all.
Big squishy hugs Vicky xxxxxxx

Oh sweetie I am so very pleased and relieved to see you about. I didn't want to email and bother you if you were poorly and if it was a family problem you might not wanted to share with me.

I am glad you managed to feel better for your birthday. I wish I was 40 again. I am half you again 60!!! I am probably at least half if not double your size in weight as well. Lol!!! Hope you continue to get better but don't push your self too much.

It will be lovely to see your gorgeous creations again and laugh at your write ups.
