We are home again yeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Well now i am finally back, well i have been at home for a while but i came home from holiday in Portugal ill and with a broken leg.

We had a great first couple of weeks, we lived about half an hour from Portimao (Algarve ) in a place called Casais, closest "village" was called monchique so we were way up in the mountains,lol, we even felt a blast of hurricane ike since we were near the coast too.
I have lots of nice photos to show you from the first and best weeks but also pictures from when i didnt feel too good; imagine going away too feel better, getting hot stone mssages and having treatments in this really special water, just do a google on the water in Caldes de monchique.
Th treatments i had before i got ill was amazing and i really felt a difference to my body after being in that water.
I do belive in most countries you can get the hot stone massage and even if it is pricy in your country it is worth the saving up to have it done; you will deffo feel like a new person after.

The bad bit happened when i was going in the tiny tiny village store to get milk and i had 2 walk through the village bar and it was this tiny step down which i didnt see ; everyone has asked me if i had drink or 3 in the before going into the store but no i did not i was just knackered after a day out and the ppl who saw me fell belives i fainted rather than just slip soooooooooo boom there i got a nice(NOT) trip to the hospital where i met the doctor from well a place not to be mentioned......................... and not 2 mention after having xrays and so on he put a bandage on and we went home with no instruction just few hundred euros poorer.......

A few days after the foot got worse and worse so we went down to the hospital and a doctor looked at saying,, here is something very wrong so after a new round with x rays and so on( no one asked if that was what i wanted; infact no one asked me if i was ok with anything they just did what ever thay wanted not caring about what i wanted.
But anyway then they found out the foot was infact broken and i needed a cast but i could not get the normal full on cast since i was flying home to Norway the week after.
Just imagine all this, we had more problems than i can even manage 2 sit down and write as i will never ever finish but the worst for me was that the first doctor who looked at me ignored me and what i said but also didnt see my foot was broken and made evrything worse for me since he did not do his job right. OMG i say
I will leave you with some photis and i will carry on telling you more ; i just need a bit of rest on my right arm( the one i have several old fractures in my elbow)

Good to have you back with us Nina.
Sounds like you have had a rough time of it at the end of your holiday. you have some lovely photos though to show.
Thanks for the comment on my new craft space. Most of my storage is from Ikea but the smaller white boxes are some my husband got me several years ago which his old works place were getting rid off. They are so useful but sadly I can't get any more of them.
Take care and keep up with the blog. Sue x

Hey Nina,

I just found your comments on my guest book. Sorry, I am not good about checking my guest book. You wanted to know about videos on your blog. Just take the leap and do it! That is what I did.

I used my camera that has a video setting and tape a demo. Then I use Windows Movie Maker to edit and add written commentary if needed. Let me know if you have questions. There is a learning curve, but once you start it gets easier and easier every time you make one.

Happy Stamping!
