Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Hoping for improvement

Hello everyone, hope all's well with you?

I'm feeling a little better, though know I have to be prepared to get worse again as unfortunately my mum is back in hospital. I find all of the travelling in and out (hospital is about half an hour away) really effects me and always means I'm in lots of pain and struggle more than usual. Saying that, there's no way I'll not visit mum while she's in there. I've found if I go in the afternoon I'm a little better as can recover in the evening before starting all over the next day. (I'm the same whether I drive or go with someone else)

As said this last week has been difficult for me anyway, the Fibromyalgia has become far worse than before (I seem to be getting worse each year) so even the most basic of things are taking me so much longer and I'm struggling with increased pain and my mobility is reduced, combine that with my other 2 conditions it's all good fun! But I keep smiling and remaining as positive as possible.

I've struggled to make any cards this week, I get frustrated when I can't as the whole creative process helps me to cope with everything else.  However I've managed to make 2 cards, though it has taken me days to make them.  They are both for my parents anniversary.

I've used Debbi Moore's Regency CD for the 1st card and Nikky Hall's Polka Doodles, A double sprinkle of Kraft cd for the cute owls in the wellies image.  Since I've got worse I find CD crafting a fab way to craft, it means I've always got papers and images to hand without having to leave my house.  Internet shopping makes things so much more accessible and having it delivered to my door is perfect.

Anyway take care and enjoy the rest of your day. Zo x
