The Hard Work Starts Now
Hi my lovelies, Sorry it has been so long, but Mum was discharged on the 10th and my feet haven't touched the ground since! She is at home now, but I have had to have a lot of support put into place as she is still far from 100%.
First, she was discharged without enough medications, and what medications she did have were just in boxes (Mum needs a blister pack, as she still gets confused with them), so I rang her pharmacy and they said they were waiting on a prescription from Mum's doctors and they were, "closed today for staff training and won't be open again until Monday", it was Thursday, so I asked what we could do to get the crucial medications! They told me to ring 111, which I did, and the doctor said he would fax an emergency prescription to Mum's pharmacy, but I would have to go and collect it. I was without my car and it was five-o-clock and the pharmacy closed at five-thirty (and it's not an insignificant jaunt from mum's house), I ran all the way - boy, am I out of condition - and got her meds.
I won't bore you guys any longer about the string of catastrophes and cock-ups, since, but suffice to say, I literally haven't had a minute to myself until last night, when I managed to grab a whole hour to do my own thing!
As I haven't even had time to think about Christmas, I thought I'd better get some cards done, so I made eleven, mass production style, cards. I pre-cut all the panels, cut all the triangles by hand out of foil card-stock, cut the glitter paper borders, folded the card bases, and punched out a load of little stars with my EK Success star border punch. After getting all the pieces needed, I stamped the sentiment on the panels and heat embossed with gold EP and got to assembling them.
I won't post all the photos, but here are a selection and then a 'group shot'.
So sorry I have been very remiss in my visits to all your lovely lovely blogs and 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.
