Four Hours To Kill
Hi lovely people! Yesterday, I got a phone call from 'Adult Care' people, who are putting measures into place for Mum's discharge from the nursing home. They asked me if I could go up to my mother's house and be there for the fitting of a key safe, to be installed between 13:00 and 17:00 hours. I asked if they could narrow it down, they said, "sorry, but no". So I just grabbed a few scraps and ready made panels (practice pieces), some glue, scissors and a few other bits and pieces and got up there at 12:45 - of course, the guy didn't get there until 16:50 - but no matter.
Whilst I was waiting, I put together the following cards, which I finished off with some stamping when I returned home.
These are the cards I ended up with.
It was a good exercise for me as it challenged my creativity, with so few supplies to hand, and, in the end, I actually enjoyed that I didn't have too much choice, as it forced me to 'think outside the box'.
The news of Mum is, they want to send her back to her home on Wednesday 9th and I am meeting with 'Adult Care' tomorrow up at Mum's house to ensure they carry out a full risk assessment to my satisfaction.
I'm linking the last one to Loll and Bonnie's new watercolour challenge as it was kindly pointed out to me that it fits - the pink is 'smooshed' watercolour spritzed with shimmer spray.
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know! If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
