With all the ups and downs we have experienced the past few weeks,this post could very easily be pages long.
To sum up as briefly as possible we have moved to a new town, 600 kms from my daughter and Mam.We chose the town of Sedgefield as our new home and the place we would like to make our retirement spot when the time comes.
The move itself has been extremely trying,we had problems getting all our furniture ,getting our phone and ADSL connections etc etc.
As if that wasn't enough our new hometown (a water stressed area) was hit by heavy rains which meant the carefully planned walls and paving were on again off again, which stressed our dogs as they were under house arrest.
Anyway I said briefly so I will leave it at that for now , although feel free to contact me should you want to hear the full length feature story.
It wasn't all doom and gloom 'cos when we eventually got our internet up and running i discovered I had won Lil Daffodils Blog candy ... and she hadn't given it to someone else when I hadn't responded immediately...thank you Fiona
To keep things consistent I struggled unbelievably with this card ...even having to redo my sentiment after I cut myself with my new scissors (they are called "smile"scissors -should have been called 'swearing" scissors)
But the card is complete and I do like it despite how challenging it was to make.
I used the Mojo Monday sketch as my inspiration so will be entering in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday 194 use the sketch.
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Ooh-la-la challenge 81 Happy Birthday
And here is my entry...let me know your opinion please.Please note as a dramatic touch I left the builders stuff visible in the background to try and illicit some sympathy!
