OMG last night I had the best nights sleep I have had in over 3 & a half weeks since I slipped a disc in my back, a whole 6 and a half lovely hours and I'm knackered now lol.
I was so annoyed with myself yesterday, I had the house to myself and intended making a card with one of the sweet new Christmas Tilda's but I just couldn't get comfy sat at my desk so I had to give up, but I did manage to visit loads of you instead so there's always a bright side. I still can't believe that in almost 20 years of nursing I never hurt my back like this, and long before the compulsory use of hoists two of us used to lift 20+ stone people in and out of beds, wheelchairs, baths etc, I reckon I must be either going soft in my old age or falling apart lol.

Halloween cards are one of my least favourite cards to make, only because I have no use for them as we don't send Halloween cards in the UK so they just end up being tossed in the bin which is a shame and a waste of time for me, of course I don't actually "toss them" in the bin if they have sweet Tilda on they are placed gently in the bin lol.
