In memory of Uncle John, the Uncle I never met.
He was killed in North Africa at the age of 19.
We don't know where he's buried but his name is on a memorial in Libya.
My first grateful of the week is him, and the many others like him who have given their lives for our freedom.
Friends who have been keeping an eye on me by phone and email.
Family who have also kept an eye on me and have tried to help by issuing invites to stay.
The calming effect of crafting..this week I've been making Christmas tags and getting my fingers inky and messy and prompted this question:
Why do Glossy Accents become black when they dry on your fingers?
The pleasure of baking. I made the Black Magic Cake that I found on Pinterest....it really is a contender for "best chocolate cake ever". Thanks to my guinea pigs..DH and Pat's DH and son. :)
A Maze of Memories for Scrap Club where I did this LO last Saturday:
Things to look forward to....especially Christmas in the NE....train and hotel booked. :)
The boy - for understanding why I'll be in the NE for Christmas and not with him...first one without him which makes me sad but it was going to happen one day.
That's it for this week, which has been another week of very mixed emotions and intense discussion.
