My dear friends. Hello. What can I say but Thank you. Two such small words, but heartfelt.
Thank you for all your beautiful comments last week about John.
Thank you to those who have sent me cards.
Thank you for the support I have received this week.
Has anyone ever told you that you are great?
There is no desk shot this week, as I’m sure you really don’t want to see it!!! Covered – nay, littered, piled high – with forms. The DWP, the DLA, the Council, an A4 pad of notes (the ubiquitous “to-do” list), a list of photos of John to be emailed to the grandchildren as they are putting together a Power point presentation to be played before and after John’s celebration service …
The most creative thing I have done this week is a jigsaw – and I haven’t finished that yet, either!
However – a friend and I did decide to celebrate John by going together to the craft show we already had tickets for. We laughed, we cried, and had a great day. John loved these days out – so it just seemed fitting. I haven’t even had time to put away my purchases, a few gorgeous coloured inks, a couple of embossing powders, some glitter paste and stencils, and a lovely Pergamano pattern.
So, instead of a desk shot, I leave you this week with a picture which hangs on our dining room wall, which John did some years back in Scraperboard work. Using a nib the black inked card is scratched until the white of the card is revealed. He was SO creative.
Take care my friends. I’m sorry I didn’t manage to comment on everyone’s post last week – it all became a little too much.
