Hello from Bad Honnef

Hi you all, good morning from my temporary place of residence here in Bad Honnef. I am here at a hospital for some long time treatment and therapy, so will be here for several weeks. Yesterday I loaded up my little panda with a few clothes and a huge pile of crafty stuff- as much as fitted into the car! So I will be able to *keep calm and carry on crafting*.

I set off from home early yesterday morning. The motor way was one giant traffic jam from start to finish, it was foggy, and we had torrential rainfalls all the way, which made the journey take twice as long as usual, so I was pleased to arrive safely. Then I had to check in, fill in lots of forms etc, and had the first medicinal checks. Tomorrow will be another day with lots of exams, and after that it will be getting down to treatment. I hope the weather will brighten up, as there are lots of pretty towns and castles along the Rhine which are worth visiting.
I should have time for some crafting later, too, so that will be nice.

Take care of yourselves, have a good day, and thanks for visiting! And if the sun is shining where you are, send a few rays over!

  1. I can just imagine the contents of your car - I bet the hospital don't get many patients arriving with a car full of ink, rubber stamps and paper!

    Wishing you well for the coming weeks and I hope the treatment helps.

    I shouldn't think the hospital has many people arriving with art supplies!

    Enjoy the Rhine I did!

  4. I knew something was up. I'm sending you a gazillion hugs, sparkles, healing wishes and strength to get you through whatever treatment you need. Not sure what the nurses are going to say though when your bed sheets get covered in ink, glue, paint and sticky bits of paper! Take care, thinking of you lots. Suze xx

  7. Sorry to hear you're in hospital Val, but do wish you all the very best, and hope everything goes well for you.

    Sounds like a grotty journey to get there, but at lease you made it, along with all your stash, lol! I bet that took priority over any usual essentials, as in your toothbrush or slippers, lol!

    I have such funny visions of you zooming down the moterway in the pouring rain, with your windscreen wipers going ten to the dozen and your little Panda bulging with crafty stash,lol!

    Wishing you all the very best Val, and well done for sneaking in so much scrummy stash!
