Sending special thoughts to all in the US - so sad to read of events over there. 😪
Despite still bring confined to barracks as it were it has been busy.
I think I am busier than before Lockdown!
My workspace and whole room need a good tidy up before I begin putting the kits together! I was up early this morning ordering all I need. Stampin Up have a new catalogue- live from today so new things to play with and use in the kits.
My work area - I took the photograph last night but it looks the same this morning!
I made only one card since last week as I have been mostly in the garden!
I have practically finished planting. There are areas to tidy up and I am making plans for a few future changes- not practical at present.
We sat for a while outside after dinner last night. Enjoying last of warmth for a while ( had rain this morning and it's cooler)
We only have a small garden now but it is enough!
Last Saturday I had a lovely video call with Mum. She looked well and was telling me a story she had made up- it involved her, two boys, a boat, alligators and a box of frogs. She was chuckling away. The carer had taken her iPad in so we could do the call. She contacted me afterwards and said it was lovely to hear Mum laughing. I was very touched that she also said how much better mum was after my calls as I was so positive. I am lucky that the carer is so kind and keeps in contact with me.
I will be sending more cards down there and some goodies soon. They were all recently tested for the virus. They are all clear- such great news.
Another lovely surprise was getting flowers from family in Yorkshire and then a visit. All four came down, we sat in the front garden. They brought their own food and chairs and we kept two metres apart. It was such a joy to see them. First time since February. We thought Matthew a little quiet but I think his experiences with patients with the virus have taken its toll. He is now longing to get back to some sort of normal - but it is taking time to set up safe environments.
They stopped for two hours, popped to see Jonathan and family then home.
We were also able to visit Jonathan & family in their garden and watch girls having fun. We kept apart but it was a lovely change.
Matthew, Carolynn and grandsons
Ralph - their Beagle!
Above the flowers they sent beforehand. So pretty.
Well I think that's it for this week. I will visit as many desks as I can. Also catching up with housework! :-(
Stay safe everyone
