Missing again.

Good morning all.
Just quickly popping in to say I am missing at the moment as I have damaged my shoulder, probably whilst exercising.
The doctor does not think that I have damaged the joint , just the soft tissue and muscle.
My shoulder, arm and armpit are hurting but I have been given some tablets and gel so fingers crossed I can get back in my crafty corner soon.
I am on strict no weight bearing exercising though for at least 2 weeks.
See you all very soon.
Thanks for popping by.
Hugs Nic.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I have been missing yet again but I have been active in other ways, my little Brother has moved home so I have helped him by patching up some wallpaper and cleaning the house he was leaving.
Yesterday I took my Mum out for a girls only shopping day and we spoilt ourselves, whilst Hubby and our laddo went to the cinema.
Today we are off out to Rudyard Lake as there is a weekend of fun happening around the lake, tomorrow it is back to work.
