Birthdays at Dream Valley




Good Evening My Lovely Crafting Friends

Thank you for all the lovely comments you have left me
it has cheered me up, I feel so lucky to have friends like you.
Pearl's funeral is on Thursday so another trip down the road
I feel as I have hardly been home this year.
Our building works are going well, we are having a Sun room
added to the back of the house, it seemed ages since we decided 
on having this done it took ages to get a Building Warrant for the build
they started the day we left home for Majorca, we were very surprised
to see how well they had got on. It is nearly finished. 
We had a lovely holiday on the Island of Majorca, we just relaxed
didn't do very much. It was very warm, helped the old bones.
I will add some photos when I get get back from Hassocks. Will I be so glad to see
2018 hopefully it can't be like this year
Enough of the waffling and

Monochrome at Crafty Cardmakers




Good Afternoon My Lovely Crafting Friends

Hope you are well sending hugs to those in need of them
and I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Yesterday we got some bad news my Sister-in-Law lost her fight
to Cancer. We don't know when the funeral will be. So the rest of the family
have said to go on our holiday as the funeral will probably later rather than sooner.
My Niece's  daughter had to come home from their holiday in Greece
as she had been taken ill again, we don't know if her Cancer has returned
we will find that out next week.
Cancer is a bummer
