A fond farewell... (but not "goodbye"!)

First of all, today's challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog is "In the family".  Why not dream up something fantastically familial and join them this week, you could win a $50 gift voucher to spend on their online store!

Unfortunately I am not taking part myself this week - I've torn my achilles' tendon and my leg will be in plaster for the next 3 or 4 months.  This means I'm unable to comfortably sit at either my computer or crafting desk for any length of time, so I'm bowing out for the time being.  Simon Says Stamp have kindly given me a leave of absence and I'll hopefully return to the fold once things get back to normal here again.

Adios (for now)! :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your injury but I whole heartedly agree with your taking a leave from any activity...my husband tore his Achilles Tendon in 2002, they did casting therapy for only 6 weeks and within days of removing the plaster cast and sending him back to work, the Achilles Tendon completely tore...33 months, 7 surgeries and a bad infection which almost cost him his leg, they finally fashioned a new 'Achilles' using his big toe tendon...you are being wise to rest and put no pressure on that leg for 3-4 months! Wishing you many Blessings,

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Will miss your unique point of view at S S S. Rest up and get better!

I hope you feel better soon. I sprained my ankle badly once, a 2.75 out of the three connections, so I really commiserate. Make sure you elevate and when it starts to feel better don't go dancing right away!

Oh poop, sorry to read you have hurt yourself, hope the tendon heals super quick and you are once more able to sit and play and do the things you love.

Hi Dan, hope you're on the mend and enjoying your break.

Oh no Dan. I just saw this. I've been peeking in and out of your blog for so long. Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery. Love your creativity and all of your talent and files you have shared through the years. Thanks so much!

I just found your blog and have enjoyed looking around. Sorry to hear you were injured and have to take some time out to heal up. I guess it has been a few months since this happened and I hope that you are healing well. Take care.
