Hello

A quick post just in case you were wondering where I had gone!

Thank you ever so much for your lovely messages on my last post & my apologies for not responding to your comments.

My lovely second in command in work had a heart attack while I was convalescing & is due shortly to have a triple heart bypass. To say that trumps my illness is an understatement!

To accommodate his time off work & my illness I have had to do a little jiggery pokery which means I am mostly without a laptop as my son uses it to work from home in the evening while he is home from uni. If any problems occur I am then on hand to deal with them. This however cuts down hugely on the amount of time blogging. Hopefully the middle of September will see me return, though that will mean a little more jiggery pokery!

Mike ensures I rest in the evening which means I have been busy crafting away, unfortunately no photographs yet! The garden has been super good this year & apart from some blossom end rot on the greenhouse tomatoes everything has been good. I have yet to plant my PSB for next year & hope I haven't left it too late.

Hopefully I will be able to access a computer again so I can leave you some comments, I'm sure you understand things have been stupidly busy of late.

Hope you are keeping well xx

  19. Sounds like access to blogging is the least of your woes! How lovely to have a son that actually works in the evening, mine is still at the out and about carefree phase. Carry on convalescing and enjoying your crafting time and get better - and good wishes to your unfortunate colleague too.

  21. Just popped over as checking in with all those in my swap... so sorry to read about your situation - sincerely hope partner will be fully recovered soon, you have a lot to deal with. It's a scary thought to the rest of us that the waters may look calm, but we cannot always see the storm that is brewing. Hope your storm has now passed. Betty

  23. I hope by now you are feeling better and the news about your colleague must have been quite a shock but your health is just as important. I understand that it is not always easy to put yourself first if you have committments such as meetings. Espcially if it is not possible for someone else to take our place. I missed most of your posts since the beginning of July due to my laptop at the time playing up but I have a different one whih is working better as it will now actual go to your blog whereas the last one just kept spinning?? You are now bookmarked and saved so I shall be back again. Take care.
