Had some fantastic news today. My brother in law has been awarded an MBE in the Queens Honours List. We are all so proud of him. He was awarded the MBE for services to Vulnerable Children and Young People in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Well done John. My sister would have been proud of you if she were still with us.
Afternoon everyone. Hope you have had a good day and that Santa has been good to you. Its been a busy week here. I returned back to work this week after almost 6 months of being sick with pancreatitis. It was touch and go really when I was admitted to hospital and I am thankful to still be here. I knew I was ill, but I had no idea how critically ill I was. But thats in the past. I've been shattered this week, but survived it. LOL.
We've had a few disasters this week. Our broadband has gone down, so this is a quick post from my mobile, the microwave broke yesterday so had to go out and get a new one. Hubby's bank card was eaten up in the ATM when he went to withdraw money on Friday night when their systems went down and last night I discovered that my laptop had been hacked and had to call the police to report it. I'll be glad when this year is over and can start a new one.
So wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and for those who have lost someone close this year, I'm sending massive hugs to you all.
I have been wanting to do some candles for ages but just have never got around to it. I decided that I wanted to do a candle on the same theme as the cards for my nieces and their husbands. Its my first attempt - the photo looks a bit hazy but I think its the image.
Not only do they look hazy, they are squint. But I'm sure they will be ok when they get them. Might try some more one day.
I am 55 years old and have been crafting for as long as I can remember, in fact started knitting when I was just 5. I have attempted various crafts over the years which have included knitting, cross stitch, ceramics and now mainly card making. My favourite being decoupage as I find it most relaxing when I'm cutting out. Like most crafters have lots of stuff and could be doing with a massive room to keep it in. I am also a big F1 fan and love to watch it on a Sunday. I try to do some crafting each day but dont always manage it. I have two nieces and three great nephews and I love them all to bits. I married my Douglas in Las Vegas in 2010 and am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him.
