New Outfit!

Morning blogging buddies.

I'm struggling a bit at the moment, having trouble with my back, it's an on going problem left over from having had a slipped disc some years ago, it flairs up now and again, and unfortunately this is one of the 'now and again's.

It started yesterday so I'm having to be really careful to make sure that it doesn't 'go' altogether, that wouldn't be good as I'd be laid up for a good while, it would certainly put paid to my crafting as I wouldn't be able to sit at the desk for long enough to get any done, so nursing it and pain killers are the order of the day, I can sit here long enough to get this post on, but then I'll have to go and sit in a more comfy, supporting chair for a while, it's such a nuisance!

So onto crafting.....

As usual, challenges and recipe below, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

This is a lovely feminine card Jacee, pretty image and papers.
Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your back, I can sympathise with you as I have had the same thing in the past, but not recently thank goodness. You are doing the right thing to rest but to keep moving carefully so you don't stiffen up. Listening to your own body is the key thing as you know. Hope it gets better soon and try to enjoy your weekend.

Christine L said...

Well I'm loving this fabulous dress card as I love all your wonderful creations!

So sorry to hear your back is causing you pain... I've been there, done that and got the T shirt having prolapsed two discs at the same time some years back... and mine is giving me some pain now too. Can I recommend that you look at something called a 'Back Friend' - it was one of the best things that I was ever bought.. as it helps me SIT when I am in pain. The link is here: http://www.medesign.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=BFSWeb

Hope that helps..

A fabulous feminine card Jacee - love the polka-dot dress and the beautiful detail.

I can sympathise with your back problem Jacee - I've had the same thing, on and off, for years, and at the moment it's "on" again! I find a hot water bottle is a help, along with Ibuprofen Gel.
Hope you are feeling better very soon.
