Thank you for the lovely comments last week. I will expand a little on my 'sad news' at the end of the post. It is not my mum though- thanks for asking.
Thanks Shaz for the advice re camera - still not got round to it yet :-) but must.
So what have I been up to since last week. Well I had eight lovely ladies come to my class and we had lots of fun :-) They made two cards, one in a box envelope and an Easter basket - with chocolate in of course :-)
I am making a few Easter cards at present - have two ladies coming this afternoon to do Saturday's class as they couldn't make Saturday and then I'm going out to tea with them as they are good friends of mine.
So to my desk.
A card for a great nephew who will be eleven tomorrow!!!
I will visit all who visit me and those ending in same number plus as many more as I can . Want to know more about WOYWW pop over to Julias' s Blog
The sad news
A fortnight ago - on Wednesday we heard that my D.I.L's cousins husband had been killed in a head on collision. they had been married for two years ( though together a long time) and had a baby on Christmas Eve - we were with my son and family and Carolynn's parents on Christmas Eve when they were waiting for news of the baby - and Carolynn's Auntie rang to tell them all of his safe arrival. Feel so sorry for the family, especially his wife and the little boy who will never know his daddy.
Last week at 5.30am my great nephew was born by emergency c section. He had been starved of oxygen and was put onto a ventilator and had/has all sorts of problems. He is off the ventilator and is improving - he had MRI scan yesterday to try and ascertain more information. One consultant said he could have been starved of oxygen for hours - they don't know. It could also be two years before any/all damage is known. He is a beautiful looking little boy and does seem to be making some progress so we are praying that he will overcome known problems and the future will be good. Obviously this is just a short version of events etc - there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered yet .
The baby's daddy- my nephew should be Best Man at his brother's wedding - just a week away - so it has also cast a shadow over the wedding . "Every one was so excited for the arrival of the baby and the wedding - both should be such joyous occasions - my heart goes out to my brother and his family at this time. But we are all trying to be positive . I will keep you updated with baby's progress.
Take care everyone.
