Onwards and Upwards

Well I need to work like mad now to get back on track. I have tons to do and I am way, way, way behind!!! Unfortunately the planned preview weekend, this weekend, will not be going ahead as there is nothing to preview lol. Need to pull my finger out. I think I will just have to preview each one on the blog as I do them.

Had lovely kids classes tonight, the first one ended up as a right mixed bag, with all doing different projects lol. They work a lot neater than the adults don't they...??

My trusty assistant Pam was in tonight and she brought me along a pressie she had made for me. Isn't it gorgeous??

Aren't I the lucky one...??
Lovely, lovely comments from lovely, lovely people.
My latest, new northern CD - Northern Soul from the Ritz at Brighouse.
My Art Journal, must cheaper than,alcohol, drugs and therapy!! And does a better job of easing the pain.
My HRT patches, things are bad enough without my hormones being all over the place. I think Ben and Emmi would resign if I didn't have them lol
M & S leggings, thank god for stretchy lycra.!!
The gorgeous smell of Lilies in my front room.
Tim Holtz's new stamps, how did I ever live without them??

Brazil nuts and tinned mackerel in tomato sauce (don't ask lol).
Hope you have things that rock your world today....... xx

Hi, I have been reading you blog and it has left me in tears everyday. I had a card for you but I had written the poem which you put on the blog so didn't send it. It is the most strange time when your Mother leaves you, you can't describe the feeling. I am so pleased you are back into your routine but you will find yourself suddenly thinking of her for no reason at all and going over all the things you shared. I am sorry I haven't been to a class, few crisis here but will be seeing you at the show for breakfast (it will be my first one) if I don't call before that. Thinking of you Mary ps couldn't remember what to do to leave message as I read the blog through my email, otherwise I would have been in touch earlier.
pps I love reading it, it's as if you are actually talking.

Hi Dyan,
What a lovely Gift.
The classes look like great fun.
I would love to go to a workshop with you but I am too far away.(Ireland)
Maybe one day!!:-)

You are so right about the Tim Holts stamps. The Demo's on his blog are great also.

Sending you big Hugs and prayers,
Michelle xx
