A Very Long Absence


Hello my faithful friends.  I hope you are well.  I know that it has been a very long while since I have posted a card and visited all you lovely people, but life just gets in the way sometimes!

I recently grabbed a few moments to make some cards (I just haven't felt like it in a long time), but felt that I needed to use some of the vast amounts of supplies that have been sat waiting for me to return!  They are not as good as I'd like, but hey ho, it is what it is, and they are what they are! 

Windows updated itself a week or two ago and choked so badly, I had no option but to reset my laptop to it's factory state and reinstall all my programs.  However, now most of them will not work with this latest 'update' to Windows!!  So, long story short, my old Adobe Photoshop will no longer work, and the new Adobe CS is subscription only, which isn't worth me subscribing to as I wouldn't use it enough!  So, please excuse the quality of the photos too as I am using a free program at present!




I will post the others soon!

Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know! 

 If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.

I'm Back!

Sorry folks, no card.  Just some scenery from our break away!

Blog Update



Hello my loyal friends.  I hope you are all well.  This is just a quick update.  Mum was discharged from hospital after around two weeks and sent to a care home for recuperation.  It really was not the place for mum (most of the residents had Dementia  or Alzheimers, whereas mum is as sharp as a tack).  Unfortunately she is not the type of girl to 'push through the pain' and she has been doing very little to get on her feet and exercise - it hurts too much.  Now, I understand that because I have inherited her low pain threshold, but it has held her back.

She is now being discharged - with a care package in place - and is going home.  It is very bad timing as we are away for four whole weeks (our usual bi-annual visit to Andalucía to visit friends who live in the rural area).  It was booked at the beginning of the year and all paid for.

However, I have put everything in place for her, her care package, medications and everything else  to do with the appointments I usually take her to has all been rearranged.

I have been unable to do any more little videos, as she has always been in a very noisy, and chaotic environment, but she asked me to thank everyone once again, for all the lovely well wishes, thoughts, prayers and even cards from friends she has never met!

So, once again my friends, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts.  And I will 'see' you all again, in July, and hopefully life will have settled a little by then!
