Enjoy

Hello there ...
Phew! Another week just flew by and what a busy week!
As you know DH and I took a train to London to finally meet my dear friend Kirsty... I joined the City Crafter team 6 years ago and through the years we have become firm friends but never did I think we would have the opportunity to meet in person...
I arranged for us to meet in a hotel in Bloomsbury London for afternoon tea and as soon as we entered I saw Kirsty and her daughters waiting there... We just hugged and hugged! Like long lost friends...
Sorry, but my DH is the worst photographer ever so the photos I have are not that good but here we go


Even a London bus in the background Lol!
And here's Kirsty with her gorgeous girls


The time went so fast , we laughed a lot and hugged a lot as well as exchanging gifts. Kirsty is so cute and adorable and felt huge next to her (I was huge next to her!) Lol! The afternoon tea was pretty good too ... Oh my ... another few pounds went on! It was a day to remember and I also got to go and visit the hotel my grandmother owned when I was a child ... So many happy days were spent there...
I have a card to share that I made some weeks ago - I originally did it for a CCCB project but wasn't keen on it so did another one


It was for the black, white and gold challenge but I thought it was too busy


I'm still doing daily visits to the hospital to see my friend - She's expected to be moved to a nursing home in the next few weeks. As well as all this last night I did my craft class at Thursday Club and prepared 20 mobiles for them to make and a card each....Yep, a busy week...

I'm looking forward to the weekend and maybe some time to just create

Thanks so much for looking in on me and for all your well wishes for my friend, I won't pretend it's an easy time and there have been moments when I've just felt overwhelmed but your friendships and encouragement keeps me going...

Have a lovely day
