I seem to be having one of those times when I'm rushing around just trying to catch up - no chance of actually "keeping up", or heaven forbid that I actually "get ahead"!
So I've not added my WOYWW to the Mr Linky over on Julia's BLOG this week as I know there's absolutely no chance of me getting around even a fraction of the desks this week.
Still I thought I'd post my little bombsite of a desk as I left it last night.
Although I got that lot out yesterday, I didn't actually open an ink pad or stick two pieces of paper together - I did NUTHIN! All I managed was to sit there and rummage through stash and get a lot of stash out and fail to come up with an idea. So I gave up and went downstairs to play with my ipod.
Must have helped a bit because I sat down this morning and managed to make my card ready for Friday's DCM. Now, if only the mojo will stay around long enough for me to get hubby's anniversary card done.....
I finished the cover of the recipe book, so I'll pop that on here tomorrow - haven't finished typing up and making all the recipe cards yet though.
Seven years ago yesterday I lost my mum. My adored dad had died very suddenly a few years before and now mum was gone too - tbh she'd never really got over losing him and was never really happy again after he'd gone. We were coming to the end of our stay in Mauritius and about to head to Dubai for the last few days of our summer holiday when my brother phoned us with the news. it was such a shock. I get a bit mixed up with the dates and times because of the time zone changes, but I think it had only been the day before that I'd called her and I'll always be glad that I rang that day because the last memory I have is a good one - of a happy voice at the other end of the "line", eager to hear about the things we were doing and the places we were seeing.
Miss you mum xxx
