PTW/MPW!! Coded?

No, it’s not code, just abbreviations: Papertake Weekly and My Paper World! I used Nicola’s sketch #5 for the ‘Blue and Green should never be seen’ challenge this week:


My poor DD got home from school as usual, but complained of feeling sick. I made one of our good old-fashioned staples – bangers and mash with steamed veg and gravy – and she couldn’t even finish it. She’s as sick as a parrot, poor mite… and doesn’t know what to do with herself. She has a sore stomach from vomiting and is a very unhappy teen… Having called the doctor, it appears there’s a ‘bug’ going round and she’s caught it.

Not much sleep in store for any of us for the next 24 hours methinks… ah well, these viruses just keep coming don’t they? 😦

Edited to say: The image is from Crafty Individuals Miniatures; PM pastel papers, handmade papers and the stamp behind the images is from Jemma’s mini-moulding mats, which she kindly sent me to play with last year! I do like this one – romantic and retro – right up my alley!!

Thank you for your kindness re: poor DD, she’s a little better today. Fingers crossed, the worst has passed… 🙂
