Two pieces of good news today!

The first one is that the hospital called and my appointment is rescheduled for Monday 2nd February. Please keep everything crossed that it isn't cancelled again.
The second thing is that I have been asked to do some workshops on the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. I was chuffed to be asked as I love using both and so teaching others how to use it will be very enjoyable. For those of you who read this who are not crafters, the Cuttlebug is an embossing and die cut machine and the Nestabilities are dies that can be used in the machine.
The card here is one that was made today in class using the Cuttlebug to emboss the pattern.

2 for the price of 1

Bet you can't believe this - 2 posts in one day?
Well apart from giving you the newsy news, I omitted to say that I have been back to work. That means trying to get inspired and come up with the 3 card designs that I have to teach each week. It has not been easy, especially as I have personal cards that I would like to make but don't seem to have time for. As much as I enjoy the teaching, the preparation that goes into it and the 'thinking time' is stealing my hobby. So much so that I will really have to think hard about whether this is really what I want to do. Anyway, for the time being, I will plod on and see how it goes. The two cards here are one from last week and one that I will be using this week.

Thought it was about time that I put something on here. What with people inviting me to join them on facebook, and others asking why I have been quiet on here, it all leads me to think that they know something that I don't!
So, having spent our Christmas in Cornwall and having enjoyed seeing friends and family it was good to get back to normality here in Spain.
We hadn't been back long before our first visitors of the year arrived - my sister Bobbie and her husband Chas (as per photo). They were only here for a 4 day visit, and although I feared that their visit would be marred by the cold, we did have some lovely sunny days and wonderful walks on the beach.
Still limping, I had to rely on my faithful crutch for support, and I think I overdid the excerise bit as I suffered the consequences the following week. My hospital appointment was cancelled on the 17th Jan, so I am now waiting for the consultant to recover from what ever illness that she is suffering from and get to find out how I am really getting on - it is a long haul, thats for sure.
