Just to give you a heads up that, two evenings ago, I was quietly relaxing on a sofa, watching 'tee-vee' and moved my right arm awkwardly, that's absolutely all I did, there was a sort of 'click' and - once I came down from the ceiling - the pain in my shoulder was not good, in fact it was horrible. Isn't it strange, only now is my left shoulder feeling almost normal after tripping over Dudley nearly a year ago and now this happens to the right one!
Being VERY right handed it's hampering me and, although it's likely to get better faster than the left one did, right now I'm pretty limited in what I can manage to do in the craft room. I can type fairly easily as my right arm is supported on the desk - but can't do any serious lifting stuff and die cutting. So most card making is on hold, apart from stuff I already have lined up and scheduled. In truth, a lot of the time I fly by the seat of my pants - perhaps a lesson there.
To take pressure off at this end, and I think for the very first time, I'm going to extend the current challenge by a week. PLUS, for once and as it's a pretty cool prize, I will allow two entries rather than just one. So, the Playground will remain open until Saturday 21st November at 11am, normal closing time of the day but a week later. You might want to enter a second time and statistically increase your chances - so long as I deem your entry to be a true snippets card and not just an afterthought of course. Who would ever do such a thing?
That has also set me thinking about Christmas and what we'll do with the challenge then. By my calculations, there will now be a new challenge on 22nd November and one on 6th December.
Which actually leads very nicely into the Christmas/New Year challenge - and it will now will span 20th December until 9th January. Yup, that's going to be another three week challenge so those of you who are busy with other things will have more of a relaxed chance to join in. BUT, please don't enter and just forget the Playground as there will be at least three other prizes posted over the three weeks of the challenge which will need comments if all goes well here (additional to the big prize I'm planning to kick the challenge off with).
I'm hoping to be much more agile asap - no press-ups though! And will post a reminder on Sunday for those of you who may miss this heads up!
Sorry about this, basically I need to try and get Dudley to the groomers tomorrow without him totally dislocating my shoulder! What wimps we both are! I suspect that Len may have to help with the 'dragging Dudley the length of the store' process! He's in for an eye-opener, snigger.
Love and apologies
