Good morning everyone,

I have booked today in for what has become known as mum's and wife's "me" day. I did try for yesterday but got caught up in my secretary's role for Sustainable Farmers and devoted quite a deal of time with typing up minutes and organising emails. I also devoted some much needed time to cleaning the house, doing the laundry...yada...yada...yada...Boring, but necessary in keeping the hubby sweet! Then, just when that was done, I had to devote more time to one's really bored although extremely sore daughter. I think I will sigh a huge sigh of relief when she pops back to work. She seems to take up a lot of time for a 21 year old! Of course, then I had to cook as we had visitors for tea.

Had a day in town on Monday as I had to return to the physio. I have now progressed to the red band for exercises. Believe me, I thought I would never progress, so this was good! I have actually been really good with doing the exercises, so the shoulder should heal and be extra strong....eventually!

Had another day in town on Tuesday with the husband. He had a meeting with the Barrier Reef Catchment people re funding for some farming practice. Then a quick look at kitchens. I am bucking at the whole idea, coz I just do not see 12T for a couple of cupboards. So, back to the discussion page. I did, however, buy a new microwave. It will be somewhat different to cook with one which works ALL the time! Had yummy garlic prawns at my daughter's place on our way home. I gave her a cookbook with all her Xmas stuff...It is a book which uses only 4 ingredients in any recipe and the prawns dish came out of it. I think I am going to pop in and buy one of these books for myself!

Ok, my card for this morning is using a splitcoast sketch. Well, I think the sketch is all over the place, but I spotted it on Split Coast. I had already done one, seen here... and at that time I could not rack my poor underused brain as to where I had seen it. It i SC120 for reference and is a great way to showcase the cuttlebugged backgrounds!

I hope you enjoy it. I do have to say, the Prisma colouring did not quite show up in the scan. The colours really do match up well.
