Where did the Summer go?

Well I almost feel embarrassed at how lax I've been and how long it is since I posted anything.  Today is not going to be any different either but at least I have 5 minutes to myself.

I spent most of May and June and a week in July invigilating exams at the local school - I think I did 60 exams in 7 weeks.  Very tiring on the feet and whilst you are not doing much, by the time I got home I ate then fell asleep.   We did manage a week in Somerset visiting the sites, gardens and the coast, drinking cider and eating cheddar.

As soon as the exams finished my dad ended up in hospital so that involved trips north.  After 4 weeks he managed to get out and we joined him to celebrate his 93rd birthday and my parents' 70th wedding anniversary.  A day later both my parents fell over and were both taken to hospital.

That's why my blog has been left unattended, I haven't had chance to make anything, join in any challenges and if I've missed commenting on your blog posts then I apologise but sometimes life gets in the way.  Hopefully things will quieten down and I will feel more creative day!!

  1. So sorry to hear about your parents, it's such a stressful time when your loved ones are in hospital. I hope they are both OK and you can rest a little and maybe relax with a little crafting. Take care Elaine

  2. Oh Elaine, I am so sorry to hear about your Mum and Dad, it must have been so stressful for you, I do hope they are both well enough to be able to go home soon.

    I think you deserved a break after all that hard work, I am not surprised that crafting has been the last thing on your mind! Take care my friend, craft and blog and comment when you are able, I for one will still be here. Hugs, Anne xx

    1. Thanks for your kind words Anne. Mum will be OK but not sure about my Dad yet. Off to visit them both soon. Elaine xx
