WOYWW 453 - Butterflies, Dragonflies and a Llama

It is early morning in Pembrokeshire, and still dark and cold.  I was awake anyway at 5 am due to pain, but then heard cats fighting outside.  Ran outside to save our house cat, Milky, from injury (she was knocked down by a car back in 2009 and has metal in her leg) - but no sign of any felines.  Come back inside to be greeted by Milky just waking up from her bed!  Oh well, no chance of any more sleep now, so I am in my craft room attempting to keep busy when the internet keeps cutting out.

I am too tired to do anything useful - like crafting, studying or admin - but I have written out the 'backs' for some ATCs and stuck them on.  I have just discovered that one card is too small, so need to get an ATC base card to stick it to.  Once that is done, perhaps I will go downstairs now and watch some tv.  I have a busy day ahead of me, so I may even try to have a nap (yes, people with chronic pain need to take a nap whenever they feel able).

Tomorrow I take the train up the coast for lunch with Jan (LLJ) and Margaret (GlitterandGlue).  I promise to take at least one photograph.

Here is my crafty table with various ATCs -

Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not manage to visit this week.

  3. Oh Ali, I seem to be joining you with pain today. Hurt my back yesterday and it's horrid now. Have a hotty tied to it with a scarf, so funny over my nightie. Hope you manage a nap and the stuff you have planned. BJ#2

  4. I really must get back into making ATCs - I miss them...
    Happy WOYWW :)

  5. Oh my goodness Ali, I’m exhausted listening to all your antics. Lovely to hear you are meeting up with Jan though. Say hello from me please

  6. I hope you have a quiet day and rest up. The weather looks iffy tomorrow so I think all we'll be doing is have a lunch and I want to pick your brains about how to make papercrafts! Margaret is en route as I type, hooray :-D
    Hugs LLJ 15 xxx

  7. I hope you were able to take a nap 'in between' and feel energized now. Have a great time meeting your friends (say hello from me too!) Happy woyww, warm hug from Holland. Marit #26

  8. Hi Ali, you will love Jan & Margaret, don't know if you've met them before? Both are really lovely, but so are all the WOYWWers!Love the ATC's. Never seem to remember to make any! Someone I am a friend of on FB has been talking recently about something called Juice Plus pills. she too has fibromyalgia, and has been really impressed with how much better she has been for the last 3 months taking them. I will send you a link in a Pm on FB later. Have a lovely week, hugs, Shaz #11 XxX

  9. Nap all you can, everyone understands and after a cold early start, why not anyway! I’m not sure I’d have even sat at my desk after such an early start, the sofa and a blanket sounds much more inviting, really hope you can get to Jan’s tomorrow, am jealous. Also perfectly sure you’ll have a lovely lunch time.

  10. Hi Ali, hope you've managed a nap and have a lovely time with the girls. Have a great woyww, Angela x17x

  11. Sweet ATC´s. :)
    So fun to meet up with friends
    with same interests I think.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Sussie nr 38.
