An Explanation and an Award!

Hi everyone.  As some of you may have noticed I haven't been posting as regularly as I used to nor have I been able to visit everyone's blogs as much as I would like to!  There is a valid reason for this and as some of you have been asking how I am I thought it was maybe about time that I let you know what is going on with me!

Basically for some time now I have been struggling due to having a poorly back.  I have had a 'naughty' back ever since childhood as I have a twisted spine.  Over the years my spine has become more twisted and this in turn has caused all sorts of other stuff - most of which I cannot even begin to spell the terminology let alone pronounce!!  Anyway without boring you all rigid it has meant that for the past few months in particular I have been in a lot of pain in my back, neck and leg which means I cannot sit for any length of time - hence me not doing much blogging or crafting!

Tomorrow I am off into hospital - (just for the day) to have a procedure done on my back which may or may not help, so if you can all keep your fingers crossed for me I'll be VERY grateful!!  It'll then depend on the outcome of this procedure as to whether anything more will need to be done.

Anyway enough of all that.........................has anyone been watching Dancing On Ice on ITV?  I just love this programme and tonight it is the final so you can all guess what I'll be doing tonight!!  I cannot make up my mind if I would like Sam or Laura to win - does anyone else have a preference?

I am so thrilled to have received a blog award from my friend Jo.  Thanks so much Jo - I cannot say just how much I appreciate receiving these awards!!

Now apparently I need to tell you 7 things about myself and pass it onto 7 people so here goes-

1) As you now all know I have got a 'naughty' back!

2) I absolutely adore milk chocolate but can't eat it so much now due to being allergic to dairy products although I think some may be called for this week!!

3) I'm allergic to fur so we have no pets.

4) My favourite colour is lilac.

5) I'm a natural blond but last year I got fed up with my hair colour and so went first a plummy/red colour then to a bright red and lastly to a brown with reddy undertones before going back to blond again!  It's amazing just how different you look with such a drastic change of hair colour!!

6) I probably have the biggest collection of jeans than anybody.  As far as I'm concerned you cannot have too many pairs of them!

7) I love all things Vampire especially the Twilight films and books and The Vampire Diaries!

Right now for the REALLY hard bit of passing this onto just 7 people-

Sharon - The Little Stamper
Tracy - Craftnut Designs
Sandra - Stamping For Pleasure
Louise - Just Love To Stamp
Mustavcoffee - Crafty Musings
Sarah - Sarah Wright Designs
Lisa - The Craft Garden

Hope eveyone is enjoying their weekend.

Sarn said...

I wondered what was up (especially since I bumped into you at Xmas) but I didn't like to ask for fear of being thought nosey!

Will certainly be keeping my fingers crossed and sending positive vibes that all goes well and your problem is resolved, or at least made more comfortable.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for giving me an Award, you're a sweetie.

Hugs, Sandra

The Little Stamper said...

Hi Kay,

I wondered why you hadn't ben around so much lately, but now it all makes sense, you poor thing. I will be keeping everything crossed for you tomorrow and hope you get the result you were hoping for from the surgery.

Also - thank you so much for the lovely blog award which I am honoured to receive from my crafty guru!
I am going to be away from blogging for a few weeks now, but will post it up when I am back on line again. Wonder if anyone else out there likes the vampires as much as we do???

And finally - can't wait for the dancing on Ice final tonight. I am kind of gunning for Chloe, but I don't know why!!!

Take care!

Sharon xx

Hi Kay trust me to be behind, hope all went well with the appointment.
I sympathise with you , back pain is just he worst.
I was reading you 7 things about you, I too am allergic to chocolate and fur, do eat chocolate but boy do I know about it when I do.
pleased sam won dancing on ice though like you I really didnt mind who won, wow what a show it was the best yet I think.

hope you are ok, love and hugs chris xx

Hi Kay I hope you'll till get this post I know this thread was a while ago, I don't get a lot of chance to have a good read of everyone's blogs as I'd like to.

Just wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about your back. It's so weird though as I also have a twisted spine. I don't often meet people who have the same problem. I hope what you had done at the hospital has helped you. I've had four lots of injections into my back but they don't really work for me. I think if I take anymore tablets I'll start to rattle!!!

So take care if you ever want a chat please email me.

Hugs Jenny xx
