And we're off....!!!

Good evening all,
Just thought I'd share with you a little "TTFN" for the week as I'm off to Zakynthos tomorrow afternoon. I bought my ticket on 14th February and all of a sudden......this one more sleep and i'm away!
Have started with a really sore throat though so I'll have to be careful as to the amount of yapping I do! :Like that'll happen :) I even went to see the GP about it this morning. I mean, usually, something like a sore throat I manage myself but, as I won't be home for a week, I thought the GP might prescribe a quick remedy for me. The result? antibiotics which the GP doesn't really want me to take and a look at my blood results which have left me reeling! I do believe the problems I'm undergoing are quite problematical! My ESR (erithrocyte sedimentation rate) is very high and now I need a referral to a rheumatologist - again! Nothing's ever easy is it?
Anyhoo, the weather is forecast to be really nice for the week; averaging 21 to 22 degrees daily and no rain! Here, it's forecast rain from Sunday onwards so...Yaaaayyyy!!! Looking forward to some warmer weather and a good ol' natter with my bezzie Jane! Not forgetting the alcohol and did I mention the sunshine? Lol
Have almost finished packing - some bits need to go in tomorrow - and have cut the grass, watered the plants (inside and out) and even had time for a little crafting this afternoon.
This last week I've been working on the boxed album for sending to Personal Impressions as in answer to their sample-maker call-out. I would love to have a go at that! I'm pretty sure I could do a good job for them but I can imagine there are loads of people (much better than me) applying too.  Oh well, "Que Sera, sera".
So my lovely blog peeps, I will say cheerio for now and I'll let you all know how the holiday went when I'm home and I've had time to "dry-out" ! Tee hee xxx

.....Where has tonight gone? I ask this for one simple reason......I've lost the night!
I have just looked at the clock and it's bang on midnight and i thought it was about 10.30!!!
Oh dear - my life is flying by and I'm spending it not crafting as I'm in bed typing this!
Anyhoo, I just thought I'd check in and give you all an update on the health situation - It's alot better than it was!
As Kristin and I both had food poisoning for the last week, I've only just begun to eat again. The one thing I could eat though was........bread! Sadly it's one of the worst foods for putting weight on with and I love it! If man could live by bread alone, then I would be a happy WOman! lol x
I've been busy making another boxed album - 6" square, and I'll upload some pictures once it's finished. I'm making it to send to a company called Personal Impressions in the hope they'll add me to their sample-maker team. Fingers crossed anyway.
He who works is away in London again and, as usual, he hates it! And I hate it too because when I'm trying to find him some accommodation near to where he's working, there usually isn't any or it's really expensive.
So, I've had a little whinge and now I feel much better :)
So, I'll upload some pics of my latest creation as soon as i can and you can have a good look through and send me some comments (or criticism!).

Have a lovely weekend,
