 Good morning all.
Firstly an apology for not visiting many desks last week. Unusually for me, I have been a poorly girl and been a bit lacking in energy and enthusiasm, plus, our computer was playing up.Thankfully, I am feeling better and my dear hubby has sorted the computer too.

So, this week - not a lot to show.
A few scraps of fabric left over from my latest secret project - the reel of white tape might be a clue!

In the bottom right hand corner is a most beautiful little pin cusshion that Annie made for me. She needed a project to keep her busy whilst she waited for moving day!
I love it and will put it to good use.

The best news of all.....

This was the photo that I put on Annie's  "NEW HOME" card!!!!!

Yes folks, Annie has at long last managed to get moved into her new bungalow.
In the end her moving day went like clockwork but was touch and go up till the last minute!

She is now happily settled - albeit surrounded by boxes  - but then she has grown accustomed to that!

I am doing this update for her because, as yet she has no broadband and is told it may take a couple of weeks.
At last she has her sparkle back and is bubbling with the pleasure of being able to make the fresh start they were longing for. So, I know you will be wanting to wish her all the best - you have all given her such a lot of comfort and support through the last twelve months and we are both very grateful and thankful to you all - you really are a lovely bunch!!

Have a great week
x Jo

I'm sorry you have been a poorly girl - but glad you are feeling better now!! Better enough for a NEW HOME card! Computers - Hmmm! - wonderful - when they work well - glad you are back up and running now.
Weyhey!!! SOOOOOOO glad Annie and hubby are at last moved! Brilliant news. Glad they are settled - even with boxes. The great thing about those boxes now is that they are DEFINITELY about to be unpacked. Wonderful news. Please give them our love n hugs!!
Take care all of you.

So sorry you've been unwell Jo - hope you're on the mend now!

What fabulous news though about Annie finally moving - please wish her and Doddy well. I don't have her new address. I think possibly sending the change of address cards out with her Christmas cards and then it not happening made Annie not risk it again :)

LOVE your card!

Hugs, Di xx

Good news, bad news. Life seems to be like that.
Sorry that you have been out of sorts, but it seems your good news is that you are on the mend.
And Annie's news is wonderful, give her our love and praying that she will soon have lots of empty boxes and a nice new work space to share with us.
Bless you

What a lovely post Jo. Not a clue what your secret make is so will wait and see.
Sorry to hear you were not well, hope you soon feel a full return to good health. Am sure knowing Annie has settled and is happier than she was has helped you feel better too. How lovely to be one of you two sisters (if you follow that).
Take care, love to both you and Annie
