Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

He's back home!

It been a painful, emotional and tiring few days, but happy to say Dave has been discharged from hospital today. The journey home was, despite my driving, less painful and bumpy - why Dave wants to know do ambulances have no shock absorbers?

The surgeon has been amazed at his recovery, the op was a bad one and the appendix he said had turned gandrous - what a relief they removed it when they did! Still that's done with and with lots of TLC he should soon be feeling better. He has already commandeered my laptop to watch the football in bed, but I don't think he'll want any of my crafting bit and pieces so I should be back very soon with another project. My little boxes are still sitting there waiting for me, but first I need a good nights sleep. Many thanks for all your caring messages, words can in no way convey my feelings for you all!

Hi Ikki. I'm so pleased to hear that Dave is home and I hope he has a speedy recovery. I think you are going to be very busy nursing over the next week or two.
Take care and have a good nights sleep.

Ah what a relief Ikki, what a relief. Wishing Dave a speedy and unhindered recovery and of course, you a speedy recovery - shock, trauma and sleeplessness - horrid for you. I'm guessing that his recovery has started quickly on the basis that nowhere is better for you than being at home.

Good news indeed - and I can certainly relate to no shock absorbers on Ambulances (speaking from experience)

Aquarius said...

So pleased to hear he is at home now. I know what you mean about ambulances and I wonder why they carry patients head first (if you know what I mean) - very disorientating and nausea making I found.

Take care
