Some pretty 50th birthday cards I'd like to share, after all I'll only turn 50 once.

       Here are the cards I received for my 50th birthday last weekend.
       They are all lovely that's why I'd like to share them with you.
I love pink and green especially.


This 50th card is from my DH,
      I think it's lovely and so sweet of him
 to choose something so pretty. He's a good fella.

Well it's quite warm here today compared to the last month or so. It's already 18c and about 70% humidity so it feels warmer than it really is. Let's just say that from wearing up to 6 layers of clothing, today I have only a t-shirt and cords on. It feels quite liberating actually. It's starting to cloud up again so let's hope we get some rain, as it's much needed here on The Darling Downs at least.

I am becoming SO frustrated now. 9 weeks post op TLIF and still quite a lot of pain, so continuing with pain killers. I am walking briskly up to 30 mins most days so that is a major break through but sitting is not good at all, and it's not getting any easier so that is annoying, not to mention that car travel is far too painful so none of that either. Therefore I am even slightly more housebound than before the operation, hence you can see where the frustration is coming from.
I still can't even put my lace-ups on, not to mention basics like cutting toe nails etc. The only trim I've had in 9 weeks was performed by my father. The shape of my nails still tells the tale.....LOL


  1. Dear friend may I wish you a very happy belated birthday!!? My hubby had his 50th earlier this year and is recovering from a recent hip replacement, so I know how difficult it is to slowly recover. I will pray you see improvement each day and that you will soon be back at your crafting.
    Blessings, Doni

  2. Hello Doni and thanks for the birthday wishes from across the sea. I hope your husband's recovery is successful. I had a fall 3 days ago and am a bit scared I have damaged something. I am only 10 weeks post op and my pain has increased. Silly girl I am. I was on a stool on my knees reaching up to a shelf and got off fine then overbalanced and landed on my back with the stool on top of me. Anyhow I'm glad you found my blog. It's only new and I am really enjoying it.
