Plum and white

I've just got a six Debbi Moore cd roms, so I was having a look at what was on them and came across these gorgeous roses. They come in several colourways but as this is my favourite colour I chose to print these and the other elements from the Flower Boutique cdrom. I have added a touch of glitter which hopefully you can see better in the close up below.

When I printed these images last night I was disappointed because they looked deep pink, however, in daylight they are just what I thought they would be! Should have put them under my Ottlite then I would have known they were true to colour.
I'm entering this into Colour Create challenge which gave this photo for inspiration

I have a day off today. Got B Gas coming to service everything sometime soon (I hope). I had to go for my check up at the vertigo clinic this morning. The exercises they gave me last time paid off and I feel loads better. Apparently because I had been trying not to do movements I thought would make me dizzy, all this has done is taught my body not to want to do anything other than be in a straight position.
I must have been dizzy though because I did something I have never done before when I left the hospital. I catch a free bus from the hospital which drops me at the tram stop. There are two tram lines, one which goes to where I live and one that doesn't. I got on the wrong one-doh! Just as the line split and I thought mine was the next stop I thought nothing looked familiar! Had to get off and catch one back to where the line splits and then another one - at least I had an all day ticket. In my defence I can catch either tram line if I am going to the Park and Ride, but because I had been to the vertigo clinic I wasn't driving.  Automatic pilot as they say!
