Friday Frog... PPF

I'm so late posting today, but quite frankly I'm just thankful to be here at all.
 (sorry that sounds rather dramatic doesn't it? ... let me explain) 
Basically, yesterday I couldn't even get out of bed! 
I've heard and even used the term "I have a bad back... I couldn't get it off the bed", but this time it was true! I have no idea what happened, but after a sleepless troubled night, I found that I just couldn't move one way or another. Excruciating pain had me completely in it's grip.
The pain was untrue and if there had been a gas and air option, then I'd have grabbed it with both hands. One minute I would be laughing at the absurdity of the situation and the next shedding a few tears, because basically I was so scared that I just couldn't move. 
Hubby wanted to call an ambulance, but I managed to persuade him not to and finally, thankfully I managed to stand vertically. Which is just as well because by this time I needed to visit the bathroom (desperately) and I didn't like hearing my hubbies different options of dealing with this problem!
Enough said!
I normally try to be positive on my blog posts because I think everyone has their own issues, health worries, problems and generally don't need other people's troubles, but if you are suffering in any way with pain or worries, I hope you find a way of dealing with them, or that they disappear completely.
So finally let's get onto the business in hand... what have I managed to create this week.
I've had appointments which have eaten into my creative time, but if you remember the silk paintings from my post last week, I've taken the tropical tree frog design and drawn this cheerful chap...
I've still got to add a few details and to rub out the pencil marks, but he makes me smile.

I suppose it's quite appropriate posting this drawing as it is Earth Day too. 

I'm aware that I had lots of lovely visitors last week and that I haven't got around to visiting you all... yet... but I will.
In the meantime, thanks for visiting and I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead.
