Hi to all my friends in the blogging world. Wow its been a long time since I posted but there have been a lot of reasons.
After our wonderful Cruise in the New Year which seems like a life time away now, I had some very sad news. My Dear Grandad who had been fighting Cancer had got worse while we were away. Thankfully I was able to spend a couple of weeks with him on my return before he sadly passed away. Seeing him suffer like he did was not easy but I wouldn't change being at his bedside for those few weeks for the world. Making him comfortable and chatting to him and seeing him smile, when he could was a comfort to us all.
I must say though that his Death hit me hard, even though I was expecting it, I have found it very hard and the past months have not been easy. I was very close to him and thought I would be able to cope with his death as it was expected... but I was wrong. But with the love of my family and my OH I'm manging to get on with life.
And although life is getting easier, and I've been busy sorting out my flat to rent out, I just haven't had the motivation to start doing my cards again yet. I've also had problems with my internet at home too, but I hope to be back soon.
I do want to say a MASSIVE thanks to all the girls at Penny Black for all their support and understanding and to Kath for all the hard work she has been doing while I've been absent, your an angel.
