I'm So Lucky........

.........to have such kind friends! As you're probably aware, I'm going through a particularly difficult time in my life right now but the one good thing to come out of it is that I'm realising that it's not the amount of money or material things I have which makes me happy but all the little things like when my boys tell me "I love you Mummy", or when Sam tells me he thinks I'm beautiful like Rosalina from Mario Karts!(BIG compliment!). It's also knowing I've got such good friends who are always there to listen to me moan and cry and receiving little gifts to let me know they're thinking of me.

I received this gorgeous card and stamp from Denise........


How generous was that! Not only has she made a beautiful card with one of my favourite Tildas but she also sent me one of the Whimsy stamps. It's so nice to get some new rubber when, like so many people, funds are really tight at the moment and I could never justify buying any new crafting stash. Thank you Denise....I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and generousity.

This morning I had another lovely surprise - I received these in the post .......

This RAK was from my good pal Jilli. She made them herself......how clever is she! They're fabulous Jilli and I will definitely make good use of them. MWAH to you! and I'm glad you're my buddy too!

I'm proud to say I passed the third part of my ECDL course on Monday, in record time I might add (blow your own trumpet, why don't you!!) I've now started the final course ECDL 2 so hopefully, when that's complete I should be able to return to work.

Must get on and cook the boys' tea now......hope to have something creative to show by the end of the week.
