Today it was so, so ,so hard to say " Goodbye" as we will not see our son and his little family for 6 months.
My goodness, I was brave.. for a few minutes as they left,then completely dissolved.
But the best cure is to get going. So we pushed the Hoover with vigour, we polished, we put the washing machine on again and again. And the dishwasher has been humming.
Of course nothing replicates the sweetest voice asking for a story or to share a game but it is time to be thankful for what we have and look forward.
Our youngest daughter is living in Barcelona and was not with us but is planning a trip home to celebrate her birthday in January.
And we are lucky enough to have our eldest daughter living close by.
Here is the project I was talking about. I have never made a quilt before but I think 2014 is the right time. I only wish I had time to attend a few lessons. I haven't . So, if anyone has any tips please leave me a lovely comment with your tips.
I am going to search my stash of material tomorrow and have a think. Always a good plan methinks.
