Some sad news.......

Hi my crafty friends, I hope you're all well.
Just wanted to pop on & say sorry for not being around for the last few weeks.
Some of you know my Dad had been poorly for some time, sadly
he passed away on December 1st after an horrendous couple of weeks. Even though
it was expected it was still such a shock....but a very peaceful end
His funeral was yesterday & I hope we did him proud....it was such a sad day but
I was so very proud watching 4 of my sons carry their Grandad's coffin.......now we
 have to try to move forward & have the fun-filled family Christmas he wanted for us...
....he certainly left lots of instructions....and made all of us promise to eat sprouts lol!
Dad died on the anniversary of my partner, Steve's death......I'm thinking the
two of them will be somewhere fighting over the remote control &
watching sports together! 
I'm hoping to be back in my craft room after Christmas, I need it now more
than ever.......I definitely have a crafty itch that needs scratching lol!
Thanks for popping in.........whatever you're up to have a lovely day....and don't 
forget to give your loved ones a hug......speak soon.

  2. Sorry for your loss but I only recently read that crafting in any form is great for beating the blues. Enjoy your Christmas, I'm sure your Dad would have wanted that and see you after the hols.

  16. Hi Jo,
    so sad to hear this my greatest sympathy to you and your family.
    My Dad left us 6 years ago now just after Christmas so I know all that you are feeling right now.
    Just so glad we had 93 years with him or in my case 63 as he was 30 when I was born.
    I still miss him so terribly at times.
    Love and big crafty hugs to try and help.
    Take your time we are all here when you feel like crafting and blgging again.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
