McNeed!

Hello friends

Glad to report yesterday's radiotherapy went very well too - so much so Elliott was definitely 
in the mood for McDonalds as soon as we left the hospital.
We stopped off at the services on the M25, not the nicest place but if you are
in needs of McDonalds urgently .....!
The hospital have joked that they are making me an honorary Radiographer,
this is because I get to set Elliott up in the treatment room, see everything on the screens
and chat to Elliott through the microphone,
(and probably ask too many questions!)  I did wonder if I would get a badge...

Elliott then opened his lovely Day 2 gift from Anne which was chocolate coins,
I got to see them briefly before they were eaten up!

Yesterday I featured Ned, Elliott's mascot dog.  There was a request to see him
without his mask and here he is...he does have eyes, they are obscured by fur.

I still have some craft projects to share.  Again, an item that is being featured 
in this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
A table favour box.
I think this design has 'me' written all over it, much more my style.
The box is Square Petal Top Box and the flower is much loved Layered Poinsettia.
A rhinestone brad to the middle gives a nice finishing touch.
A little tag is featured - please stop by in a day or two as I have information
about all the tags I like to use on projects.

Already Wednesday, this week is rushing by and I am pleased, I am marking the 
next six weeks off the calendar and wishing away 2013.
2014 is going to be a fantastic year!

Wonderful to hear Elliott's treatment is progressing so well, must be a load off your mind getting the trauma with the mask dealt with and getting treatment started. Love the wee dog so cute.

Takecare you both.

So Elliott didn't share Annes day 2 choc then :)Love the little box, what would we do without the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies (and matching stamps)? I use them all year in different ways.

Hi Christine, Half way through the first week and the treatment is going really well, and also its a
great sign that Elliott is hungry for Mcdonald's, Now if the next few weeks can go as smoothly!!!!
Would you let me know the measurements of the box as it looks to be a handy small box for a number of small gifts.

Love that the hospital have made you an honorary radiographer - they seem really understanding that that makes you and Elliott so much more at ease. Ned is cute too - he did well with his treatment, didn't he? LOL.
