Lots of reasons for my absence from my blog - nothing major or scary, just life. I also had problems trying to get onto Julia's Blog :-( - hopefully sorted now with help from the lovely Doug ( Shaz and Doug) and our son. I still can't link by clicking on side of my blog but at least I can get on.
I say lots been going on and there has but in the main it has been a different kind of busy.
I had my last class on the 14th March, was supposed to visit my mum on 15th march but it was decided it was not sensible and then the Home closed doors ( understood perfectly) to visitors on 18th.
Since the 17th March Graham and I have been nowhere apart from walks locally. Lots of kind people have helped with shopping. I am not complaining we are very fortunate. I miss the family. Jonathan, Sarah and girls pop past on their permitted walks but of course no hugging. We last saw Matthew and family in February :-( thank goodness for modern technology - we have at least been able to keep in touch and 'see' each other.
It was a difficult time at the start - worrying about Matthew - he was on the front line and the more I heard about NHS staff dying ( and doctors in other countries) the more upset I became and didn't want to do some things. I feel a little easier about him and my D.I.L.now. Worry of course re all family - youngest son and family have all been at home, all well at mum's Care Home they are doing a wonderful job.
Crafting wise I initially made some crochet hearts plus sympathy cards for the ICU of my son's hospital ( he requested) then thank you cards for hospital staff. Also sent an array of cards to Mum's Care Home. Sent a food parcel to Matthew's in laws - things they couldn't get and I had managed to :-) donated hand cream and other bits and pieces - doesn't seem a lot when you write it down.
There were three birthdays, mine , Graham's and Jonathan's cards so cards to make for the men,a cake for Graham .
So to my workspace -
A few photos of makes and mentions above.
Probably too many - sorry Julia.
I think I had better stop there! Looking forward to visiting you and your desks.
