It's been a long time !

How have five months managed to pass by since the last time I posted.
Things haven't been good in my household in that I lost my mum suddenly in June - one minute she was fit and well and the next she got a "tummy bug" which turned out to be C.diff and there was nothing that could be done. We got her to the doctors and hospital on Tuesday and she passed away Friday without having come round from the sedation she was put under because of the pain.  I spoke to her doctor recently and she couldn't believe it either. We're slowly coming to terms with it but it's so hard.
On a brighter note my daughter has just started Uni in Cardiff, although that's not been without problems to, especially when her boyfriend broke up with her last week and she promptly hopped on a  train and came home! Still it's her birthday next week so we're off to see her for a couple of days - just hope weather improves a bit.
Obviously for the reasons above I've not done a lot of crafting but sometime ago I went to a demo on art journalling and promptly decided to have a go so rather than no piccies at all I thought I'd show you my very first page background - hope you like it, just got to remember how to do this for next time.

Not a brilliant picture, but better than nothing.
Take care everyone andI hope to be back soon.
