Taken in a garden we visited last weekend.

We are leaving in half an hour for a long weekend in the New Forest- with our bikes! I hope I can take full advantage of the time there. My left hand is suffering from gripping the handlebar :( and the cramps and joint pain I get in it are worsening lots. I see the doc on Tuesday though, and I might ask about an X-ray to see what's what.

It will be nice to get away to different scenery! And the New Forest has so many animals. The ponies and donkeys have right of way there. I love that. I was all ready and packed last night!

See you next week- and thanks, again, for the messages of support and friendship I've received. You really do make a difference!

Hope your weekend is relaxing for you Helena. I sympathise over the joint pain, my hands are dreadful too and my doctor just seems to dismiss it.

Hello, I came over from Miss Peach to say hello and that card you made is fabulous.. I will take a look at your other things. Love the site and can relate to what I have read about why you started blogging. I started when at a very low ebb and it helped so much. I now wouldn't want to be without it.
I hope you have a fab weekend. The New Forrest is brilliant.

Hope you enjoy your weekend, Helena. I hear you on the pain front - I have carpal tunnel issues in my right hand - ouch.

Hello Helena! How are you? I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your hands feel better.
I posted pictures of the amazing cards you sent along with a cute picture of cheeky Toeshee on my blog. Everyone Loves your cards! I adore them!
My husband called them Very Classy and something that you can't get at a mass produced card store. I agree! He actually pulled himself away from his computer to hold them and admire them, so there you go! :)
I am thinking of you lots and lots and hope all is well.
Miss You!
Gentle Hugs and Rumbly Purrs from Toeshee,

Hope you have a great time. You might try getting a brace to wear at night for your hand - maybe it's carpal tunnel syndrome. I know wearing the brace helped me. I didn't wear it during the day so it didn't hamper my crafts any.
