I am Back


Hi all my great friends who have so helped me through this bad time. I would like to thank everyone for their goodwishes and cards that were sent. I have not been able to get on my blog as my internet went down on Tuesday and the Engineer from Virgin has just left, after dropping my laptop on the floor, so hopefully I will have no more problems, as new Modem was installed. I will hopefully be blog hopping all night whilst I wait for the "Early Bird Xmas TSV" from QVC tonight. I am so looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to and getting a few challenges to do... I have missed this so much. I did not realise how much I relied on my internet until I did not have it, I have been so bored, but not any more......













I was honoured a couple of weeks ago to be given a "Pay it Forward" award from http://ffrogblog.blogspot.com/ if you have not already visited her blog, please pop along, she has such lovely cards etc. The idea of the "PIF" award is to pass it on to 5 people, you e-mail them for their address and send them a little something that will make them smile. Just when I needed it most she sent me the above, which did not only make me smile, but my whole family, especially my grandson, who at 8 said "these are your job's granny" cheeky wee monkey! but I have to say, he has made everything that we have went through as a family so much easier to bare......being so young, his life just goes on as normal, from breakfast to supper and everything inbetween is just as it should be.......I think I have said on several occassions that I love having him live with us and this week more so. I have yet to choose my 5 recipients off this award, but I will let you know over the next few days. So once again thank you to all off you who took the time to let me know that you are thinking about my family and I, and also the ffrog, for the lovely gift that really did bring a smile to my face. Hugs to all. Avril

As for the JM paper bag project, you have a whole month to make one, which gives everyone time to get hold of a bag and have a go! Can't wait to see what you do!
