A Fibromyalgia day today

I am struggling today, around 4.30pm last night was talking to hubby on the phone as he was going to the shop on his way home as at the moment I have no car, Sarah's car died on her on the way to work on Wednesday the head gasket has gone, and so she is using Alan's car and Alan is using mine as he is on my insurance.  So I am stuck in the village unless I want to get the bus which takes nearly 2 hours to go to town, and as I am feeling crappy I would not be driving anyway.      I digress sorry, was talking to Alan last night and the fibromyalgia hit me like a freight train, body drained of all energy, could not get words out, could not remember what we needed from the shop and the next thing I knew Alan rushed through the door in a panic apparently I fell asleep whilst mid sentence with my head on the computer, so you can understand why he dashed home, I went to bed and slept most of the night away have woken this morning very tired, slight vertigo and sick feeling so it's a quiet day for me today as I would love to go crafting with Rachel tomorrow.

Anyway enough waffle as I told you in a previous post I have about 12 commissioned cards to make two of them are for the same person so I have to be careful not to use anything similar as it is two different people who have commissioned these cards.  The lady who the cards are for is going to be 100 at the end of April, Wow don't think I'll get to that ripe old age.  So without further ado here is the first of the cards

This is my first ever attempt at doing one of these vintage cards, but I fell in love with this image and just had to use it.

Well enough waffle from me this morning need to get my act together, breakfast first me thinks, I am waiting for two deliveries today one from the soap kitchen which is my soap stuff and one from the candle shop which is more candle wax for my pillar candles as I have made 36 pillar candles so far and am going to need a lot more if I am doing craft fair's the trouble is we have a small bungalow with no storage space so lord knows where these are going to be stored until the shows start.   Think the first one is Easter Weekend will have to check as it is getting a bit close.

I also need to make some more cupcake wrappers for my cupcake candle and get those off my desk and stored and box the two batches of soap I have here but need to sort out the ingredients and then put them into Latin blood European legislation gets on my pip.

Don't forget my blog candy which you can find Here

Will be back after I have done everything I need to in the house
Love Alison xx
