All over and done with – I hope, although I’m still afraid to count my chickens cos that last piece of work I handed in was the worst and most quickly thrown together I’ve ever handed in, but at least there’s nothing pending for now :-) It’s a strange feeling, though, after 8 weeks of frenetic activity, with my parents coming over, followed by my nephew and niece, my son’s wedding, lots of observations one after the other, with various meetings, etc, 5 busy days in York with my brother, Ash and Rach after saying a tearful goodbye to Mum and Dad (again) then a quick catch up with my son and his new wife before the kids left on Monday – I’ve really missed having them all within easy reach and it was a real treat. But hey ho, life goes on and rarely stays the same!
Here’s a photo of each of them. Still can’t get over how grown up they are because they were only 6 and 8 when they left England. They’ll be 18 and 21 this year!
The week before last, I managed to get my hands on some of those brilliant storage units they have in Infant schools – the wooden type with lots of plastic drawers – so the first thing I did after handing in my work was to start reorganising my craft room – eek! Can’t believe I amassed so many new stamps while I wasn’t even stamping, but at least I have new stuff to play with, he, he! Still haven’t finished reorganising, but it’s better than it was and the room’s actually been cleaned for the first time in about ten years – ooer! I’ll get piccies of the units soon, but for now, just wanted to upload the first card I made in my cleaner room, lol.
