We are getting into different patterns in our daily lives.
Dewi is getting used to sleeping on his own.
Geoff is getting used to not having a little white shadow chasing him about.
I'm just getting used to it, whatever 'it' is.
Family, friends and bloggers have been marvellous, thank you. Thank you for all your comments left on my blog, 74! I can't believe it!
Thank you for all the emails, the phone calls and texts..
I actually went out yesterday, for the first time in 2 weeks, with Chris, Sandy and Judith, we went to Jean's coffee morning. Jean brought a huge amount fabric ,yarn, patterns, books and other crafty goodies over to Crete but now is unable to use most of it so she's selling it.
I've got a couple of ideas up my sleevies...
I've borrowed a couple of ?? to do some carding, of a fleece that I've washed. Sorry, don't know the words but I'm sure someone will help me out??
From Jean's, I bought an old crochet pattern book and some fine yarn.............
Leonie has started her new business, good luck! Had my eyebrows waxed yesterday, thank you Leonie. It was painless, honest!She'll wax anything for you......................or your man!
It's a birthday gift from Bethan, my daughter.She organised it ages ago. We're going to stay with friends who we've known for 30 years.So I'm really looking forward to catching up with Liz and Kev, saw them 7 years ago last, when they came to our wedding (7 years ago TOMORROW!! Happy Anniversary Geoff xxxx)
I'm arriving a day earlier then Bethan. (Her weekend is Thurs. and Fri. in Saudi Arabia) Liz and I will have lost our voices by then.
We're going to do some shopping and some sight seeing, it's all very exciting. I'm desperately trying to find some 'tidy' clothes (sounds Welsh!!)
p.s. in case you're wondering, the black and white photo above?? It was taken on April 17th, Greek Orthodox Good Friday this year. Geoff is holding a basket which Thali, our neighbour gave us, full of Easter biscuits, cakes and dyed eggs.. Of course, Jose is keeping a close eye on them..
