Best Friends!

Hello to You All, and I hope you are well.

I would like to give a warm welcome to a new follower, Chrisie, lovely to have you here and I hope you will like what you see, and thank you all for the lovely comments and taking the time to visit.

Not been too bad a day here, a bit overcast at times, a little warmer, but I wore a cardie just in case.
My adventurer had returned safe and sound having had a wonderful time, I do worry when he's away, he is 67 after all with a hip replacement and although he tells me he does'nt take any risks, he friends have always let things slip so I know that he does.  Can't stop him though, it's what he does and he's been doing it since the age of 11.

I've got my OH appointment at last and it's next week, thankfully Alistair will still be here, he's going to the Orkneys for a week and I thought it would be sod's law if the date landed then.  I wanted someone with me for support as I get all tangled at things like this and this is so important as I hope the outcome will assess me as being unfit to do what I'm being asked to do at work and which has been causing the stress. Alistair will come along and take notes for me.  I'm busy getting everything I want the Dr. to know about written down, and boy is it some list.

My card tonight;

This image come from http://nicecranedesigns.com/  and It's from the Asian Kids range of images.  I think they are so lovely.

I've matted and layered on to Core'dinations and Papermania, Oriental Treasures Paper
Papermania Sentiment
MB Fabulous Phlox
Hobby House Pearls
Glamour Dust.

I felt that the image didn't need too meany embellishments, but the MB flower soes reflect the floral artwork in the paper.

So that's my little contribution for tonight, I hope you have a pleasant evening and see you soon

Hugs Kate x

Kate that's great that you have finally got your O.H appointment at long last. Now you might get somewhere, so don't go getting yourself all worked up.

Great card, love the layout and flowers.

A lovely card Kate. The phlox flower die really is lovely.
Glad you will have Alistair to support you. Good luck.
You made me chuckle about his risk taking. I hate to say this but I doubt he will change. John is quite a bit older than Alistair and I'm sure he still takes what he would describe as "calculated" risks. But he is an experienced climber and I think we just have to support them and pray they are okay - and then be very relieved when they get down safely!!

Wonderful News Kate that you finally got a date for OH. Try not to stress as it won't help your situation and I think you have been through enough already. I'm pleased that Alistair is going to be around to go with you for moral support.
Your card is really stunning and I went through a stage when everything was oriental. Take Care. Hugs Rita xxx

Hi Kate, so happy you have your appointment and that Alistair will be on hand to support you. You will never be able to curb his risk taking now just fingers crossed when he goes out on one of his adventures. I love your card, anything orienal appeals to me and the topper is gorgeous. Take care.

Good afternoon Kate, brilliant card, love the image and of course Pandas are hot news at the moment.
Glad your appointment has come through and Alistair will be with you.
You might just get things sorted at long last. Try not to get yourself too stressed out before you even get there.

Such a sweet card Kate - hey you youngster -- I am 69 - fractured my left hip last year in a fall and be darned if I did not get a hair line fracture in my right hip not long ago! You all are youngsters to me and Alister will be fine. My husband is 71 and works in our wee farm like you would not believe. It's good to be active!
