Look what I've been up to, my wrist saga ... & template links

Hi folks ~

I got myself a nice new shiny toy on Friday...loving it!

It's taken me all weekend to transfer my pics and docs and I'm still getting used to using it. If I owe you an email I hope to get to it soon, having trouble with multiples at the moment so I've been flicking between old lappy and new lappy.

I keep meaning to update those of you interested in my wrist saga ... it continues. I had two appointments at the hospital during March, one being a meeting with my surgeon. I've completed all my admission forms and they tell me I should be having my surgery within two months (hmmmm as a public patient I won't hold my breath). In the meantime I have to wear a new splint that is designed to 'tilt' some of my wrist bones back up a bit, they've healed on an angle. I was measured up and received a phone call today advising that it's ready and I have to be back at the hospital on Wednesday morning for a fitting. It's going to be a joy to wear - NOT! Have to increase my physio appointments too between now and surgery. I'm really hoping that this will all be over and done with at some point soon, it's been nothing but trouble since I broke it and I've almost forgotten what it's like to be able to use my wrist fully and have a pain free day. Now and then I have to dope myself silly on the drugs they give me, which is not conducive to getting out of bed and getting myself to work!

Following my last two posts, I've had lots of requests to share the templates I used to create the scallop top note bag and no adhesive bag/box. I did link to the bag when I posted my very first share, however, neglected to do so again. Here they are:

Purse & Bag/box

Enjoy and if you have any queries give me a shout and I'll be happy to help.
