My dreams

sadly I dont mean what I dream and want to achieve I mean the wierd and wonderful dreams my brain comes up with in the night.
I said this blog was about ME (my journey with ME) Myself (my cat and cards) and I (my general ramblings on life)
Ive decided since then my dreams are part of  'I'

I have really memorable and visual dreams to the point where some days Im not sure if I dreamt it or lived it.

The other day I dreamt all my finger ti[s had gone and turned black, I had a line around my wrist that was black and my fingers were nailed together. Not only that I was pulling pins out of my hand. I woke to find my hand clawed and in pain so I guess thats the connection.

Other dreams though are fun. I dream of things that I saw on tv. They're not real but I feel part of that world and get annoyed with myself when I wake up.
I dream of things that happened during the day and in my dream they have a different ending which although it didnt happy makes me laugh

I dream of anxiety where the whole world is against me and although I know I behaved badly I really didnt deserve the backlash and end up kicking out at the world and waking myself up and spending the rest of the night trying to explain my actions.... too many 'ands' in there I guess

I dream of places I know so well and yet I dont know at all, people I know and care about and yet dont know situations I have no idea if they happened, if I dreamt them or if they will happen.

And yes I have dreamt about things that years later did happen and I never had the dream again...

Or did I dream it all????

This isnt a post about ME, cat, life or stuff just a general ramble which is how my mind feels today.

Tomorrow I may actually do something good like make a card hehehe

Just looked and it says its 11.56 where as my world says 7.57?

Another challenge

The top two pictures were a scrapbook page challenge sketch. I got a scrapbook kit for my birthday 3 yrs ago and this challenge made me actually use some papers. I couldnt decide which photo to use so I did two pages but really enjoyed the challenge and plan to make more scrapbook pages in the future 

The bottom card is for a card sketch challenge which included the instructions of no embellishments. I decided to use such blingy card that embellishing it would be over the top so in a way cheated but in another way didnt.
The top card was made for my brothers birthday but that was before I didnt the bottom card and now Im really torn. I love the simplicity of the top card but worry its too simple. I love the colours of the bottom card but worry its too blingy.

Hmm better decide although I have a few days as the post office wont be open thanks to the bank holiday!

Totally and probably overly sentimental


Its my Dads birthday this week and Ive made a card for him im not sure about. My Dad is my biggest fan and I know it but he's so picky as well it makes me unsure of making cards for him. I show him cards Ive made and hes says yeah its good but youve done better, so when it comes to cards for him I feel the same. In a way its easier to make cards for my Mum as thats more my comfort zone where Dad is a challenge.

When I was a teen and really bothered about my appearance Dad always was there. He wasnt always helpful so after spending hours doing my hair so my burn and operation scars didnt show him telling me as I walked out the door my scar showed wasnt always great but it was always because he knew if he didnt tell me and someone else did I would be so upset.

Im a real Daddys girl and always have been and I know that both my parents love me so thats not a problem. In fact even though I havent lived up to their expectations in a way I still know they love me. I didnt go to university and follow that route but always being a worker I hope they were proud of me. Since getting ill they've been the best parents anyone could ever ask for! They've been their to support me and look after me even in times where Ive felt I let them down. Yes I do wish things were different and I could look after them not the other way round but since getting ill Ive got to know my parents so well that if they werent my parents I would want them as friends!
