Cheetah Shark...........

Morning all!

Last night I had a super duper sleep. I fell asleep watching the football in bed and was fast away by 8:30am and I didn't wake until 5:19am this morning (..Mo and Scott even snored in until 6am!!!!) and the best bit is I only had 2 doses of full on painkillers yesterday too so I think I am getting there. And thank you so very much for all your lovely comments, it really does help to read them and not feel like I am going it alone xxx

One of my BF's took me for a walk around the block whilst Scott went to fetch Mo. Going in the car is very, very painful so I think I am going to have a rest from being in the car for a couple of days.

Yesterday I felt well enough in the afternoon to get a little bit of a craft on and finish up my beautiful new cheetah shark from the new Cat Shark Mermaid set from Tiddly Inks. This one just really hit the spot for me, she's just gorgeous.

A few layers of scrummy papers and die cutting and she was done. 

Now, yesterday I took a few moments to try and explain to my BFF's what it looks like under my dressings ( I am seriously so blessed for my trio of 3, they are just amazing). This could of course only be done with an amazing Lou picture....

Oh, ok..so I am not amazing at drawing at all but it still helped!! lol!! the little cross belly button was my first attempt at getting my belly button drawn in the right place but then when I looked in the mirror it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to far from my nipple when my left boob is out of its bra so that needed an edit!!! pmsl!!!!

I managed 5,938 of my normal 10,000 steps yesterday too so I was quite chuffed with that. Today I am going to try for a little more now the anesthetic has worked its way out of my system. I have had a few days of feeling really sick and dizzy with it so wouldn't of trusted myself to walk alone at all. Today I think I can do it so I'm going to have a go at some slow womble sessions!!

Right, got to go. I need a cuppa!!
huge hugs Lou xxx 


  1. Beautiful card Lou and wonderful drawing. Nothing like being truthful, re the moving of the bellybutton. Sounds like you have life under control right now and managing all those steps was brilliant. Lots of positive thoughts being sent your way, hugs Aileen

  2. Love the cheetah print on your card. So pretty. The papers are a great mix.

    Don't walk alone. 5,938 is better than zero. The last thing you need is to fall and break a clavicle or something. Oh..............there's nothing like a good night's sleep is there? To know that you are getting to slow down on the pain meds is great. How's the hair washing going? There are some great quality dry shampoos out there if you can't get to the salon for a wash.

    1. Scott, my amazing husband, has washed it for me twice now. I kneel by the bath with a pillow and he covers me in towel and washes my hair over the bath, it feels soooooo good!!!!

  3. Gorgeous card Lou. Love all the layers and the cute wee fish swimming along the sentiment! Love her sparkly tail too. Gorgeous chick!! You have been so well looked after by your lovely hubby haven't you. I can't imagine mine washing my hair for me! (Though he'd probably be quite happy washing everything else!! LOL) So glad you are still taking it easy hun, short walks and baby steps! You are amazing my sweet friend and handling all this in absolutely the best way possible. Loads of love continually pouring to you. Big hugs, Wends xoxo


One little comment goes a long way!! your special words always make my day :)
