Back on track...

Life is getting back on track....I am sure there will always be wistful moments but life does keep moving forward. Just a little strange at times.....
Mum has headed back home but has left things behind, the spare room is now officially hers & she is welcome whenever she likes...nice to have her around. It was a treat to have her...lots of chat & good company.
I am back to normal with work, DH is back to his usual work routine, DD looks like she has gained her first professional job which will help to support her whilst she does Honours & DS heads off to university this coming weekend...whew...my head is spinning ( and it is not just because I went forehead first into an electric fence yesterday!!!Loooong story!). Any wonder why sewing has been pretty slow here of late!
I have been fiddling with this bag...Bella by Fig tree...French General...looks good!
I am catching up with blogs & emails...I would like to thank Joan of wishes,true & kind for honouring me with a blog award- it was a lovely surprise in the fog of the past few weeks- I will let you know more over the next few days! Thanks Joan- you made me smile!

I always like getting back into a routine of sorts. I feel that I am more productive that way. Love the bag!

'Forehead first into an electric fence'???!!! I would be using that as an excuse for all kinds of things!! Love the bag, looking forward to seeing it all finished.

So nice to have you back, and it makes me smile to know I made you smile. I think it's wonderful that your mom left some things behind and has a room just waiting for her. What a nice feeling for her and you.
