Ski Patrol


At the moment i'm struggling to get the temperature and swelling down on my knee - even though i'm resting it and using packets of frozen peas !!! I went to the fracture clinic on tuesday and what a waste of time the doctor and nurses were - the doctor said my name, but reckoned i lived in Littlehampton !!, which is about 15 miles from where i do live !!, then the nurse said she wanted my crutches back - how she thought i was going to walk i don't know - you wonder if they actually read your notes ???, it's a shame really as A & E were superb and i couldn't have asked anymore from them.

As i'm a little behind on the Xmas card pile, i thought i would do another one, plus i'm not really into Halloween !!. This time i have used an image that has been kindly sent to me, some fabby Doodlebug papers, my MS punch that doesn't get used as much as the snowflake one and i loved the idea of doing a banner greeting - i have embossed the banner with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder.
