Candy to celebrate the success of my son's exam results

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends.
                 Have you missed me?
                 Did you notice I had gone.?
                 I bet you didn't lol
                Too busy crafting eh! Lol

Due to health issues I have done very little blogging.
On Thursday of last week I had a migraine.
 My own fault for not getting a repeat prescription.

Friday, I mislaid my camera andI  spend the whole day looking for it.
Phew! I found it!
But I overdid it and now I am now paying the price. My foot is badly swollen and I have cellulitis.

 Basically the skin on my foot is hot to touch but i feel like its frozen. i cannot get  a sock, shoe or slippers on. I cant even get my son's size eight shoes on. So going to the hospital this afternoon is going to be fun... Lol.

As i predicted I couldn't get my shoes on so I wore these.

I turned a few heads!!!
 and they turned a few heads for sure and raised a few smile's too

Boy Haven't we had a lot of rain and strong winds. Part of my garden fence has been blown into ruin's and this weather, it has blown some tiles off the roof. On Saturday night, Well actually it was early hours of Sunday morning, I got a fright of my life when the heavens opened and the rain had come through my bedroom ceiling and soaked  my bed. 

This leak was reported in july, due to a small leak I had back then.
 But now it has runs along three quarters of the bedroom ceiling.
I am just waiting for the whole ceiling to come down.
I decided I would try to inspect the damage by going up the attic. There was a small problem with this idea I cannot put any weight on one foot  So i decided to go up the ladder backwards. After I located the leak i couldnt get back down from the attic for the fear of falling, As you need to put weight on your feet to get onto the ladder.If you had been here all you could have done was to laugh. What a sight for sore eyes. Lol The council have planned for the roofers to visit next week. The leaking roof was fixed sw

Well, i did manage to get down, obviously for you to be reading this. Lol

Last week was my ex-sister in laws and today is my Ex- husbands.  Happy Birthday Jason.....

Good luck to you all

You do crazy things just like me, I can see you climbing up the ladder backwards, checking the roof and then saying - how in ..... am I going to get down. Going up was easy.
I do hope your foot is on the mend now and keep on wearing those lovely slippers.
I wish I could wear slippers like that, but it is just to hot here in Oz to wear such lovely cozy slippers. Back home in NZ I had a pair of ducks feet - bright yellow!
Thank you for visiting my blog and showing me yours. You hae some lovely pieces and I will be visiting regularly.
I have put a picture of your candy on my blog and linked it back.
All the best - you proud mum
