Chilly Monday Morning and Christmas Card No. 11

I got up this morning (10.30) to a very chilly, and late, start to the day. It was only 5 degrees outside brrrr and not such a lot warmer inside. So it was a quick shower and clean bedroom to get myself warm, it did the trick.
We had a lovely weekend, lots of friends visiting and wishing me well. It is now 4 weeks since my mini stroke and I think I can breath a BIG sigh of relief. We have known that it was likely that I would have an other one within 4 weeks if I didnt take drastic action and that has been playing on my mind so much. Well I have taken drastic action by stopping smoking, trying to take a walk out each day even though it has been a slow walk, purchasing a shopper on wheels so that I dont carry anything and trying my hardest not to eat anything fatty. I have been drinking lots of fruit juice yakkss and eating a lot of fresh veg, more yaks and a lot less coffee, biggest yaks. Of course there has been all the medication too. My blood pressure is still rather high and I am suffering from hypertension but its off to the doctors tomorrow to see if he thinks I am fit enough to go back to work.
Unfortunately, due to lack of concentration I havent been spending much time in the craft room which is rather surprising. It has had a few little tidy ups but I did make this card for Katerina's friend, who had her birthday yesterday.
Not a brilliant photo as we just havent had very good lighting but I am sure you will be able to see it clearly enough.
Today I have a few visitors popping in to see me this afternoon which will be lovely and I hope to do a little pottering and putting bits and pieces away.
It's getting to be a bit of a struggle to remember what Christmas cards I have put on here and which ones I still want to share with you but I am sure that you havent seen this one yet
Another masterpiece that was made for my demo day quite a few weeks ago but one of my many talented friends (I am sure you have guessed that I dont know if its an Anne, Sue, Lynn or Elvie card lol).
Thanks for having a read and I hope you have a lovely start to the week.
