Apologies! now the worst is over....

for the moment! things at the pool are running nicely! But with all the extra hours there is hardly any down time!  I have started to clean the spare room AKA the room everyone shoves stuff they don't want in their room and cannot find a home for ROOM! I have 3 big green bags ready for the salvos and even more for the tip and 2 bags of things I cannot bear to throw out.  I had planned yesterday to really get stuck in to it and make a huge dent as I had 3 hours uninterrupted time. Then I got a phone call from the boy's school saying that one of the kids (couldn't make out who they were talking about!) had hurt themselves on a trampoline! At first I was confused as I couldn't place where they had tramps at school! anyway after I asked which son she was talking about she said Patrick was being treated by ambulance officers.  I thought what a klutz he is and then she said the ambos decided they would be taking him to Frankston hospital and would I come straight away.  Af first I thought he has such a low pain threshold and there would be nothing wrong with him and schools always over react!  Those who know me know that I am the most pathetic map reader and wouldn't know how to get ANYWHERE!  I was worried how the heck was I going to  find Frankston let alone the hospital! anyway with the TOMTOM I sort of got there eventually (90 minutes later and NO STUFF UPS)  I thought he would be sitting in the waiting room with a sling and ready to go home but this is what I was greeted with...
quite confronting!  I was speechless and started crying and so did he! The staff were just fantastic and quick to reassure me that he was responding positively to all the test and were sure there was nothing appeared to be broken but he was drugged up and they wanted to be sure there were no cracks in his neck or collarbone.  He had to have X-rays to be sure.  He was distraught, that his favourite NFL jersey had to be cut off but cheered up when I said I will buy a new one (from the US!) Anyway after what seemed like an eternity, he was given the all clear and we were allowed to leave. Just in time for the peak hour traffic!!! It took me two and a half hours to get home!  He will be stiff and sore for a little while, but at least he is in one piece!
3AS are having a card swap and here are mine. Finished and all ready to post!



Had lots of fun with the cuttlebug folders and the nestabilities.  Looking forward to seeing what I get back as it will be nice to have my stash looking a bit healthier.
A little sneak for a class at Scraphaven

Was really nice to start scrapping again! I have cleaned my room and am ready to roll!

That would of scared the life out of me too Ange. That neck brace looks so confronting!!
Glad he is ok and that the school gets rid of those rotten trampolines!!
Those cards look brilliant, just lovely! You've got me worried though, I only sent 7 off!?!
hugs to Patrick,(not too hard though lol) and hope he makes a quick recovery. (and maybe a stiff drink for Mum??)

Oh Ange I can only imagine the fear a mum would feel confronting your son like this. I am so glad he got the all clear, wow that sounds like the day from hell re: the traffic and everything else. But he was probably more worried that his fav NRL Jersey had to be cut off. Love the cards by the way. Love to you all, Mel
