WOYWW#456 - 20th Anniversary

Jolly glad it wasn't this cold, nor snowing when I got married 20 years ago!

Although I think there was a slight flurry during our reception.

Not much afoot on my desk, Anniversary card made, eventually.



Interesting theme you may think? Well 20 years is China and as I've been stuck in with the bad back this was all I could manage in that department.

Back is getting better slowly. Osteopath was amazing, excruciatingly painful but exhilarating at the same time! Had Aunty Flo to deal with since so not sure where the back ache was emanating from at times this week!


Jug of water on desk was from ironing, but keeping to osteopath's advice only 10 minutes at a time, hence big pile left to do and board still out.

I also made a card for a friend's son who shares the date.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Well, big congratulations on your anniversary. I remember it was foggy when i got married and my photos outside church did not turn out - shame as I had the Guides there doing a guard of honour.

Glad you have got some relief from your back ache - hope it keeps on working but only 10 minute spells at crafting ... I spend more than that in getting things out and thinking what to do.

Hugs, Neet 5 xx

Congratulations on your anniversary - I love the card. Sorry to hear your back has been bad, hope you are on the mend and hope the other troubles stay under control - I'm off the Norethisterone now and all seems to be going well, but still not fully confident to venture too far from home!
Have a good week,

Here's to 20 more years. I hear that steamer is better than an iron and easier. Since I do not have one that is from a friend who does. We buy non iron everything!
Hope you back improves and the weather. Hugs Monica #27

Hi BJ, congratulations to you both on your 20th anniversary. Lovely card. Glad to hear your back is improving. Not overkeen on ironing, but I do have a steamer rather than an iron and it does get through it far quicker. Have a lovely week Heather x #31

Happy returns for your anniversary! I never not once interpreted it as China the country...clever you! Mind ours was so long ago that I don’t think I was a card maker then. Glad to hear the back is letting you do little amounts of stuff, it really does feel doubly worse because it’s such a waste of good time isn’t it.
