As Promised

 Hello there friends...

As promised I do have some paintings to share, mostly abstract ones today with a seascape thrown in.
Did I tell you that my camera broke? Well it did so I used my phone for these and I apologise for the blur in some of them but my hands are not at all steady.
Anyway here we go, random paint and when dry I add the little features

I haven't added sentiments as yet, took me awhile to make these into cards. I hope you enjoy them.

On another note I finally have a couple of appointments for breathing tests which I have to undergo before I see the specialist. I'm doing okay and fingers crossed that the fibrosis doesn't spread. Hubby is also doing well after his collapse, he was a bit low for a few days but is now back to his usual self.

I hope you are all doing well, till next time...

Happy Valentine's and Hello

 Hello there friends

I know it's been such a long time since I posted and I don't yet have anything photographed to share but I'm working on that.

It's been as hectic as ever with appointments and I had carpal tunnel surgery in January

Whilst it can't eleviate the nerve pain in my hand, it has saved me losing the use of it totally. So that left me out of action for awhile.
I am still receiving draining for the seromas since the mastectomy operation and I have been diagnosed with lung fibrosis from the radiotherapy I received so I am waiting to see a lung specialist but quite frankly it has changed my life.
I can no longer go to my exercise class and the simple things leave me breathless but I'm accepting the things I cannot change and still doing what I can including painting and sewing.

We've lost a few friends this year and yesterday we attended the funeral of a really lovely guy but there were so many people at the crematorium that we had to stand until someone gave me their seat. Unfortunately my husband became dizzy so we went out to the foyer where he collapsed. It was dreadful and I was so grateful to the people that came to help including the undertaker from the next funeral waiting to come in. 

He is fine now, and it's one of those things that can happen to him if he stands for too long - He is tall and the blood struggles to pump to his brain then he ends up fainting. It hasn't happened in a long while but this time I thought I was losing him and in the crematorium of all places with funerals arriving and unable to proceed. Somewhere there is humour in it all...

I really hope to get back to blogging more often but for now I will leave you with this
