And when it rains, it pours!

Hey ya'll!

Just when I thought there was some excitement in my life, my back decided to give up on me! It seems my (t)rusty old back had had enough...after two babies and a couple of years of neglecting good advice, my lower back just froze one morning. I couldn't get off my bed, I couldn't sit, I couldn't walk - I couldn't do anything unassisted. My eyes filled with fear and tears, "What if I couldn't stand up straight, ever?". OMG! The things we take for granted! After half a day of excruciating pain and the terror of ending up with a slip-disc, seeing a doctor was the obvious thing to do. Turned out my lower spine had taken a lot of beating from the strains of everyday life. "You need complete rest!", said the doctor. So that translated to no picking up my little man, no picking up anything heavy, no house work (yay to that, by the way!), no nappy changes (yay to that too!), nothing. Just plain and simple rest, rest and more rest. And medication. Oh yes, the blessed little pills that knock you off completely, LOL! So then, thanks to my hubster, I rested. I rested while he looked after the kids, cooked and cleaned up. Bless him! And now, I'm so much better. I can sit up and walk and be myself again, hallelujah!

Anyway, that was my little woeful story. But all this stalled my craft room transformation. It's going to take longer than I'd planned. Damn! Oh well, better late than never, I guess? There has been a whole lot of progress though. Thanks to Linnie & Shiva (again) the furniture was all up pretty soon. Then we went shopping for storage - fun 'n' pretty storage. I have a colour theme going...won't say it just yet : -) It's fun to go shopping, looking for pretty things in a specific colour (or two).

So, it shouldn't be too long. I'll share e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g about the room here soon. Now, where's hubby? The little man needs a nappy change (wink).

Happy Crafting!
