  1. My uncle's funeral today and I am doing one of the bible readings which just happens to be the same scriptures - Psalm 23 as at my Dad's funeral 7 years ago. I will need some strength to do this little task.

      So sorry for your loss AM. If I may share - we just had this situation with readers at my Mom's funeral and even if you don't "make it" through the reading - it will be meaningful and comfort your family. Take care.....

  2. My life seems a roller coaster.... phone call today from my Aunt - my last surviving Uncle ( my Dad's brother ) died this morning. Not an unexpected death as he has not been well.

      My sympathies, Anne-Marie. It's hard to hear that we've lost a loved ones, even if we are expecting it.

  3. For those praying for my son-in-law... the operation went well and they were very pleased with the doctor who performed it. My granddaughters are having fun with us - bit tiring - not as young as I used to be.

  5. Well, Imogen and Kirra are such sweet granddaughters - they went off to sleep so well for us so I took advantage of the time to pop into Photoshop and get my project 52 page done for last week.

  9. No Scrapping again today.... have been busy cooking for visitors coming for lunch tomorrow. They are Vegans so a bit tricky to cook for. Now tonight my dear husband and I are off to a Dance! I am a little excited as we have not been dancing since our courting days ( other than the square dancing we used to do).

  16. I took advantage of the great sale and bought some collections now I am having trouble downloading as for some reason the last few days my downloading has become very very slow. Phone my internet provider and so far nothing is fixed.

  17. After reading Jody's great article about Art Journaling, I decided to share a recent page of mine as I am interested in doing more art journaling.

  18. I had fun adding a moustache to my avatar.

  19. Thank you for a comment you may on my recent page in the gallery. I tried to send you a PM but it came back saying you could not receive messages.

  20. Looks like I missed the card chat as I am sure it was scheduled for 9pm which is 10am today for me.

  22. I have just started another new game which I hope everyone enjoys as it involves a little more of sharing ourselves.

  23. Hope you do well as a designer... off to the boutique now to see what you have there.

  24. Thank you to all those behind the scenes doing all the organising for this week's Anniversary. I was not able to take part in many things but what I did, I did enjoy.
