I have my beloved tumble dryer mended at last, and am managing to catch up with the mound of laundry that has built up over the last fortnight!! Now for those ladies who know me, you know how much i love housework!! well i have been busying myself with the dusting and hoovering and the house is looking half decent now, at least i wont have to answer the front door with my foot jammed in it to stop it opening further for people to view the mess!!!
Jasmine has suddenly felt better, which means she will be going back to school full time tomorrow.
I have made a start on the dreaded valentine cards!
Finally i am managing to catch up with my "To Do" list! i have managed to catch up a bit with some thank you's and some RAKs that im late in sending also im nearly finished with the stamping up of images for my swaps! So if you are waiting for some, they will be with you by the weekend!
So now you can see, im feeling pretty pleased with myself! How long it will last im not sure, but its good while it lasts!
Blogging has brought me in contact with some very special people. I wont name you, but you know who you are. These are cards that i made to send to some special friends for various reasons. I think im safe to post them as i know most have been received already. For those that havn't apologies.
The first three cards are using my favourite whiff of joy image. Im sure its hot chocolate and cream that is being enjoyed here!!
Flocked papers and velvet ribbon, luxury itself!!
This gorgeous hanglar image again was sent to me via a RAK. The gorgeous papers are from the Pink petticoat download site. I just adore the colours.
Then finally a card for the Card Swap challenge that was this week themed snow and ice. These gruffy bears are just the cutest!
So its off to the supermarket for me this morning, arrrghh!! hate the grocery shopping but i've left it too late to order it over the internet. I will treat myself to a nice cream bun, after all i will have deserved it!!!!
On a Serious Note
I want to say a big thank you to a few special friends as i have been having yet more personal problems this week with my eldest son. I have felt very isolated until i had some very comforting words yesterday and this morning from very caring and understanding friends. It was not easy talking about what has been happening, but i confided in three friends who have been very supportive to me over the last 6 months. Their response has been again of support and understanding and non-judgemental. I realize im not the only one going through what i've been going through, and as a result i am feeling far more optimistic for the future. You ladies know who you are and i will never be able to thank you enough.
I have not been blogging for that long, and i can honestly say its the best thing i've ever done. Apart from the ladies above, i have met so many generous, kind and thoughtful people to whom i am grateful for their friendship. I hope that i will always stay in contact with them and build on these friendships in the year ahead. I've recently been reminded that it is important to tell those we care about just that, life is too short and its important we let people know how special they are. So i want to take the opportunity to say to all my blogging friends, just how special you are to me. Each and every one of your comments brightens my day. So thank you!
Well enough of that sloppy stuff, i must get on, i hope you all have a wonderful day, speak soon. Hugs Linda x
