 Hello all. I have been missing for 2/3 weeks. All sorts of reasons, not bad though. Life has been busy in a good way. 

I have apologies to make as well. I had promised to send some ATC's. They are posted now. 

I think I also failed to tell three lovely ladies I received their's. Thank Lyn, Susan R and Maureen. All received and so lovely. 

Two weeks ago, 22nd June marked 1st Anniversary of mum's death. I visited the cemetery with my brother to lay flowers. Our youngest had invited me for coffee earlier, he also arrived with flowers later. The evening we were invited round to his. We remembered happy times we all had with my mum and dad.

At the end of the week we visited Matthew and family. It was Harry's  16th birthday. He also started a part time job at the village pub. We trooped up there on Sat afternoon, much to his embarrassment,  he had to serve us! 

It was a lovely end to that week. 

Anyway there is much more news but I will spare you. 

My workspace- I am only just starting to craft again after a couple of weeks break. Making a card for my 4year

 old great niece and 4 year old great nephew. You can just see them in top left of photo. 

Harry, ready for his first ever job. He was very nervous.

With his brother Sam.

Flowers for mum. 

I will visit desks later. X 


  1. There seems to be a prolem with this week's link Anne (an extra - in the address?) so I found you via a previous link up. Glad you are crafting again and that you had family with you for the 1st anniversary of your Mum's loss. Hope Harry enjoys his new job. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #6

  2. I double checked - no .uk on the end.

  3. oh, so sorry such a sad anniversary! good to see you this time though - your link was wrong though, I think you missed the m on your dot com when you copied it... found you though! take care. Helen #8

  4. Still can't get to you with this week's link but okay when I used it from an earlier post. Pleased to hear you had a good time away and good luck to Harry, hope he enjoys the new job. Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x18x

  5. I’ve fixed the link. A great start for Harry, bet he was glad to see you lot turn up!! had to be done though, it’s just one of those family things! A good way to deal with a sad anniversary, and props to your boys for being there for you. As for not having done much for a couple of weeks, Lordy, it’s been about four months for me now, I need to create a routine. Thanks for the ATC, it arrived this morning, ever so pretty.

  6. Yay, I can see your post now! I’m glad you’ve had a busy family time, lovely pics, but it is good to see you on the desks today. Hope you manage to get some more crafting done and thank you for the beautiful ATC which arrived today, I love it!
    Hugs LLJ 1 xx

  7. You must have fixed the link because I didn't have any trouble getting here. Sorry about the sobering anniversary, but at least you were with family who remembered your mother with happy thoughts and memories.

    That poor grandson. I bet he WAS embarrassed. I hope everyone left him a big tip. Looks like he had a great birthday, though. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  8. Sympathising over the first anniversary. Good to talk of happy times though. Have a great weekend Angela #3

  9. Oh how quickly these youngsters are growing up - he looks so smart all set for work! xx Jo

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  13. Thank you for my ATC Anne, is has arrived! Snail post wasn't too bad in the end.
    Oh to be 16 again. I would change so many things! but not all of them! (just icase of the Butterfly Effect'!
    My mum passed away a few years ago now and she's with dad and where she wanted to be. I don't think either of them would be happy with whats happened to their beautiful garden. Never mind, life goes on, so they say.
    I hope you left him a tip, for serving your drinks! Happy very late WOYWW ((Lyn))#4

  14. Hi Anne, thanks for stopping by my first WOYWW and blog post for over 8 years! it's lovely to hear from you. Looks like you're busy with family life. Sorry to hear of the loss of your Mum last year, the flowers for her are lovely. I'm going to try and post regularly again! we'll see how I get on :)


I love receiving comments and promise I will read them all.
