Thank you dearest Patti. This award originated in Germany and means Beloved Blog. A wonderful word! I too have so many beloved blogs that I love and follow but time catches up with me and I cannot name them all. So I accept this award with thanks and grace but I think now I must say.. This is now an award free blog.! Thank you all.xx

My 100 Themes
The Digital Whispers Challenge
This is me!
I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I have two wonderful children and their better halves! Two grandchildren, ditto, and three beautiful great grandchildren.
I am very disabled and spend most of my time in a wheelchair in front of this computer. I'd fade away without it. It's my contact with my friends and the great world wide web!
I am surrounded with most of my family who are very supportive, caring and loving. I am indeed blessed.
I thought I'd try something different today, so here it is....
The Pink Ballerina.
I liked how it turned out. The background was a kaleidoscope I made from
one of my pictures, doubled up, lain on a background of satin.The ballerina
was a freebie and a few elements. Pretty colours
and something a bit different.
I actually left the house yesterday on my scooter with Algie in tow. He was pleased to be out but the wind was so cold it about froze my face. We went down to the garage to pay the car bill. Called at the shop for milk and they came out to serve me as I had the dog. Super service!
We went round the quay but Algie was loathe to walk or run much. He just wanted to be up on the footplate to see the world. Needless to say he had his fur lined coat on but I think he needs a bonnet, the wind was so cold. It was nice to get some fresh air but I'm not braving that icy wind today!
Keep warm dear friends, or cool if you're experiencing a heatwave!
I have had so much trouble posting today.........UGH!
I think I was in a romantic frame of mind when I made this.
So many accidents and falls on the ice, my Sally has joined them.
Pulling Peter in his wheelchair backwards she slipped and wheelchair and Peter fell on her as she lay on the ground. His neighbours came out and got him back into his chair, unhurt, but Sally has hurt her back badly and bumped her head. She has been off work a few days resting.
I'm sorry my pictures are joined together! I've tried everything to separate them a bit but gave up. I think I should just count myself lucky that I've managed to upload anything at all while Blogger is giving us headaches!!
So here are two more of those wonderful European porcelain busts.
Aren't they just gorgeous?
I saw a new (to me) doctor yesterday and he fully agreed I need something more to manage the pain I'm in, from both Arthritis and Lupus.
So he has prescribed patches, which I believe contain morphine and I am to see him again in a month to see how they suit me. My daughter's comment to that was 'about time!'
Freddie has just gone down to the Surgery on the scooter to pick them up for me as I cannot walk today. So hopefully I shall get some relief.
You can't imagine how I'm looking forward to that.
Thank you all dear ladies for your comments re uploading pictures to Blogger. Now I know I'm not alone and it's not just me. Why must they keep changing things? I always thought if it wasn't broke, don't fix it......sigh....
After a lot of struggle (with something they say is easy) I did manage to put one picture on Picasa yesterday and here it is!! We're having a Journal page challenge on Digitalmania. As I don't work in mixed media any more, mine was created digitally. Perhaps that quote really does apply to me!!
Well for some unknown reason or other Blogger wouldn't let me put a picture on here today. I had to go into a Picasa album and find something older that's been posted before so please forgive me.
'Your wish is granted'..........Hmm............. I think we should all be very careful what we wish for
as it doesn't always turn out in quite the way you imagined!
66 years ago today (God! That's a lifetime!!) I was a bridesmaid to my mother's cousin Daisy. I have a photograph of the wedding group somewhere and I've searched and searched but can't find it. The only time I've ever been a bridesmaid and I was wearing a pink satin dress! Memories...........
I have found on Google some pictures of gorgeous Edwardian porcelain busts, mostly European, from the late 19th. century. I thought they were beautiful and I'd love to own one. So the next best thing for me is to make a series of pictures with them.
So here is the first one I did and I hope you like it.
Freddie has been to see his specialist today in Norwich and is again on a course of antibiotics.
If these aren't successful it looks as though he may lose another toe.
I can't bear to think about it.
Algie and I went to Chapel this morning and he was a good boy.
His reward was half a digestive biscuit dipped in coffee! He doesn't like them 'dry'!!
