WOYWW 110 - the almost didn't happen one...

Well, hello.  I'm a bit late to this week's party, but I have a letter for Miss from my mum saying it's alright that I'm late.

See, I was wondering, at 10pm on Monday, whether or not I'd have desk to show this week.  Or rather, what exactly my desk would be.  The thought, at that time, that was running through my head was one of a certain blog challenge called The Month in Numbers.  And, ironically enough, as I was laying on my back on the hospital trolley looking up at the light I thought, well, 4 is the number of paramedics/first responders who attended the call, and 5 is the number of screws in the lamp above my trolley.  I knew at that point I was probably ok..... LOL

To put it into a nutshell, I've been having tummy troubles for a while, but it's never happened at work - 15 mins from the end of the day on Monday I had chronic belly ache and so my colleagues had me shipped off in a meat wagon.  They let me out again that night, with no defined clue as to the problem but they're now going to treat me for IBS and see if that works.  Currently, I feel like I spent two days having Mike Tyson rearrange my insides, I have a Dr's appt for tonight, and am off work because I can't stay in any one position for too long.  So I'll keep it fairly brief!

My desk this week is not quite, but pretty much, as I left it.


The tan box with doors (can you tell what it is yet?) on my work mat is part of Mum's birthday card that I'm building.  I'm trying to drum up the energy to finish it because I need it for Friday.  It shouldn't take me too long - I've done the really hard part, the cutting out.  Now I just have to colour the remaining card and glue the whole lot together.  Oh, and make the box for it to go in.

Just beyond the current project, to the left of that little blue punch and in front of Hel's tag (still in place of honour for I-am-not-worthy worship) is Mr B's current project - he's making double slider cards (oh yes, graduated from 3D decoupage we have, into paper engineering) for his leavers, which will hang from helium filled balloons.  They look pretty good.  What you see there is the front panel for the card but it's not showing up very well.  He's even doing stencilling and heat embossing.  Now I know why I hoarded stash all these years.

Ok, my tum is telling me it's time to go and lie down.  I wonder what's on Create & Craft today.....?

Oh Morti, you poor thing :( As I know all about 'funny tums' and IBS, I completely understand how you must be feeling right now. Washed out doesn't come into it. Just don't go back to work too soon, give yourself time to get over it properly. I'm impressed with your work in progress, but also Mr B's too. His leavers will love what he's doing. What a great teacher is he?!! xx PS Did you succumb to anything on Create and Craft??!! LOL xx Get better soon

Oh you poor weak and struck down thing, that feeling of being hit by a truck...am very sorry for you. Am perfectly sure that your sweet Mum will be more than happy to have a belated card if you aren't up to it - that which is done is looking great. Feel better soon.

To start off I do so love your work area, it's awesome. I'm sorry to hear about your IBS. We have a friend who has it too. Take care of yourself and hope you get it under control so you are up and about craftying more real soon!

Chronic belly ache sounds horrible and I hope that they soon find out what it is. Feel better soon.

Andria said...

So sorry to hear of your tummy troubles. I hope it can get diagnosed accurately and treated soon! Love that box you are working on for your mother...looks so pretty! Happy WOYWW!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i hope you are feeling better by now! how amazing that you made a post even if your tummy is acting up! your mum's card looks amazing! thanks for sharing!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Morti, for someone who is so poorly you are being truly heroic in posting at all - I do hope this attack of ?IBS has worn off by now and that your week will get better too. Used to get bouts of it myself a few years back so I can report that it can ease off with the right medication and get better eventually. Take care. Elizabeth x #99

Neet said...

Oh heck - hope you get sorted soon as it sounds as if that pain is really terrible.
Rest as much as needed. Plenty of crafting time ahead so don't overdo it.

I'm pretty sure I'd have skipped this week's WOYWW if I was in that much pain. So sorry to read about the stomach problems and hope they fix it soon. And of course, I don't have a clue what you are making for your mom, so I'll just wait to see the end result. Get better, too!

butlersabroad said...

Uck, hope "whatever it is" is fixed and gone soon and that you get you Mum's card made. Although as Julia has said, I'm sure she won't mind if it's a little late.

Hugs
Brenda

Nice looking desk. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Vickie

Hope you feel better soon Morti. I do find that my IBS is not as bad in Turkey. I think it has a lot to do with the lack of chocolate and sugary/stodgy stuff i eat here. Dont envy you the discomfort just now! Enjoy some R&R with create and craft.
