Hello - Remember me?I can't believe that It has been so long since I last blogged and the last two posts weren't proper posts then. Oh this proper job business takes up so much time! I am going to make a concerted effort to blog more as it is one of the things I enjoy doing but has had to be put on the back burner for a while. Perhaps the answer is less text and just a quick post with pictures but then I like to write about things as my blog is also my craft/daily life diary. So I am going to scatter through this and the next couple of posts the DT pieces I have made for the ATDML design team gallery.
They will not relate to any of the content of this post but will break up all the waffle!
What has been going on in our little house lately? David has spent the last two weekends in bed with migraines (any suggestions).
The fabulous Gracia Rose is home for the next three weeks - working on her studies every spare moment (nothing new there then) because she is determined to give herself the best chance she can to transfer to medicine in September. The irony is that her results were good enough for her to do medicine this year but she didn't have the confidence in herself to apply for it.
Work is still fun. Although I am doing a job that is similar to the one I did 11 years ago it is new and exciting because of the long break I have had from Marketing. We are just getting ready to start the season (it is a sailing charity) and the big push for funders and clients starts in earnest in the new year.
At home, we have been living in jumble sale conditions for far too long, the presents have yet to be wrapped, the decorations only went up yesterday, the cards were posted on Friday and my JYC 2011 has 15 pages made (each page has a 4 inch square of paper, a 3 inch square of paper and a strip of 7 Gypsies Christmas masking tape - not complicated but still not finished) of that 15 only 12 have journaling on and of that 12 only 1 has a photo so far. Looks like I have a little project to get on with during the Christmas break. So there we are. Hope your run up to Christmas is less frantic than mine.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. David's headache has gone and he is able to go out on his annual Christmas walk with his friends today.
2. My best girl is home safe and sound.
3. Only 4 more days until a nice long break, time to spend tidying the house, going for long walks with David and Kiera and maybe Gracia if she is about and just chilling with my cutting and sticking stuff.
