I'm Back with Candy

Hi Girls. I'm home at long last and so glad to be back in blogland again. I really missed my daily visits to your blogs and I have a lot of catching up to do but I think I'm going to need a couple of days to get back into things again. 4 weeks in bed has taken its toll and I will have to build up my energy levels. I am so thankful that so many of you kept popping in here while I was in hospital for William's updates and for your good wishes for me. I am humbled to think that so many people were concerned. I didn't think that he would post every day (I think secretly he enjoyed it) and I hope that he didn't overdo it.
Anyway, my heel has improved beyond belief and I am on oxygen at home until they get to the bottom of the blood oxygen problem so hopefully it's all improvement from now on.

Thank you Candy

Although it will never adequately tell how much I appreciate all your comments and prayers I have decided to put together some Candy to say "Thank You". I intend to hold a draw to determine who should win it. Every comment left during the time that William was posting (16th April to 12th May inclusive) will have 1 entry to the draw and every card I have received will earn 2 entries to the draw. That means that there will be almost 500 entries in total (I think I'll give him the job of typing them all out. Lol). I received comments and cards from all over the world and I will post the candy to anywhere. I'll announce the winner later in the week.

Thank you for calling in to my blog so regularly and I hope to be back to cardmaking and blogging very shortly.

Big, big Loving Hugs,


  1. Oh Fiona, so glad to have you back!!! Make sure you rest up so you get a chance to get your energy levels back .... I'm sure you can't wait to get back into your craft room and start creating again! William was so kind and sweet with all his blog updates of you and I'm so thankful to him for that - you have a great husband!! :)
    And how very nice of you to share some candy - you have such a great bunch of followers who care for you deeply! Take care of yourself and looking forward to seeing your cards again when you're feeling stronger! It must be so good to be home and back in your own bed again!

  12. Hi Fiona

    Sal xx

  13. Weyhey! Hiya hun!
    I bet you are so chuffed to be back home in your own bed with you own creature comforts. It's so nice to have you back, although we were getting used to 'himself' and his updates - LOL
    Don't you go rushing into anything mind, take your time and be fully rested. I might let you do a bit of colouring now and then (tee-hee), but don't you go over-doing things!
    Did you need another car to bring home all those cards?? There must have been quite a few judging by the piccie that William posted a while back. . .
    Hope you get back into the swing of things real soon hun, but like I said, take your time and look after yourself!
    BIG squishy hugs and mushy stuff!!
    Teri xx

  21. Good to see you posting again Fiona. William has been really good at updating us about how you've been. Maybe he'll pop onto your blog now and again to say hello lol.

    You're so kind to want to share candy. I'm sure we were all just concerned about a fellow blogger and not looking for anything in return.

    I hope you can rest now and build up your strength. Take care and try not to do too much and we'll look forward to seeing your next card when you feel up to crafting.

    I was initially just a random visitor to your blog because I loved your homemade flowers but your situation and Williams caring attitude were so compelling I have become a regular ,
    Am so pleased you are home and hope that you improve in leeps and bounds

  27. Welcome home Fiona It's great to have you back with us again. I'm so glad you're feeling better. Your lovely Hubby did a great job keeping everyone updated on your progress, he's a natural blogger!!! It's so sweet of you to offer candy too, but please take it easy for a while and get your strength back.
    Take care, Hugs

  28. Hi Fiona

    It is fantastic to see that you are now back home. We have all missed you very much and look forward to seeing your wonderful creations again. Make sure you get lots of R & R and build your strength up again first though. William did a fantastic job of holding the fort and giving us all updates on your progress, thank you William. We will miss him but perhaps he can pop on your blog now and then and say hello. There is no need for a candy we are all just very pleased to see you back. Lots of hugs, Christine x

  29. Oh Fiona it is so lovely to have you back, not that William wasn't a treat but he just couldn't create like you lol. You really must take things easy and build up slowly especially for you the sake of your back if not your own steam.
    Kepp well and thank William for all his lovely posts.
    Kim xXx

  30. Oh Fiona I am so pleased that you are back. But please be realistic a couple of days to get back to everything - don't overdo it will you. Now William has been a very good blogger whilst you were away but for some reason he never posted any flowers he had made LOL! Great to have you back hugs to you both
