40th Birthday!

Morning blogging buddies.

It's been a few days since I've been able to get round to your blogs and leave comments, so do please forgive me, I will try my best to catch up.

My back is playing up I'm afraid, so it makes it difficult to sit at the desk for too long, sit anywhere for too long for that matter, I have to keep changing position, I'm being very careful as I don't want it to  'go' completely, so I'm nursing it a bit, not bending to pick anything up and stuff like that, it's a flippin' nuisance. 

I've been taking my 'big' tablets as I call them but they unfortunately make me very weary after a couple of days, so there's no winning at the minute.

I have my son's, daughter-in-law's and grandchildren all here on Sunday as it will be my birthday, so that will make it an interesting day 'back wise' being as I have to feed everybody! 

I'm trying to make things that are easy to prepare to make life easier  I do like to put on a good 'spread' though, but I'm sure they'll all 'muck in' if need be, hubby's pretty good at helping out in that department so long as I tell him exactly what to do (typical bloke) but hey ho, onward and upward as they say.

So onto crafting....

I made this a couple of weeks a go for my niece, dozy me forgot to blog it!

Hi Jacee,
Happy Birthday for Sunday.
sorry to hear about your back, I do hope it doesn't trouble you too much so you can celebrate your Birthday is it 21 again. lol.
I know just how you feel as I have just got my back to stop hurting hopefully.
Yes sitting for long periods doesn't help as you get quite uncomfortable, and stiff when moving about again, and then you seem to drop everything just when you didn't want to bend.
You take it easy, and I do hope it is soon feeling a lot better.
Love your super creation.
Such beautiful items used, and wonderfully designed as usual.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

You've made Claire a stunning milestone birthday card, Jacee, which I'm sure she'll treasure always! I'm so sorry your back has poked its head out the door, darn thing, and I know prezackly what you mean about babying it so it doesn't go ALL the way out! Do be careful and let others muck in for the whole blooming meal this one time, not only for your back, but because it's your birthday, for heaven's sake! Let them treat you like it's your special day because, hey, it is! Enjoy and I wish you many, many more and a back that settles back in quickly!! Hugs, Darnell

me to just catching up with visiting everyone, no what you are going through with your back, painful. On the 1st of June i had one of my Facet Joints put back in the right place. Had bad back for many a year and found out that's why. So far so good but still got to take it easy. You take it easy to and take care xx
