Mental note to self - don't let the cat step on the laptop keyboard while typing a post..... whole posts can just disappear!!! And to make matters worse the auto-save happened at the same time so I couldn't even salvage what I had sitting in my drafts from earlier today when I started typing!! So let's try again....
Today's post is one big Thank You! Thank you to everyone who has commented on my last post about the passing of our beautiful Daisy dog. I have tried to personally reply to you all, however a couple of you had "no-reply" on your comments and I haven't been able to locate an email address for you. Both Hubby and I thank you all for your lovely heartfelt comments, thoughts and hugs.
It has been a very sad week but we managed to survive the first week without Daisy. Each day gets easier.. although coming home and not having a big bouncing puppy waiting for you is still heart wrenching and can be a struggle. Daisy's ashes were returned to us on Friday - while it's not the same as having her here with us we both feel that her spirit is still here in house. I am sure that I have felt her here many times over the last week and I felt her presence very strongly just before the door bell rang on Friday when Lawnswood returned her ashes... Very strange I know....
Now I also have some other Thank You's as well. Remember I mentioned in a previous post about the exchange that went a bit awry? Well, since receiving my replacement exchange pressie from the lovely Valerie a couple of weeks ago I have since received another 3! Lovely pressies have arrived from Claire in Belgium and Francesca and Laura in Italy. I wonder what my mail man thinks with all these international parcels arriving for me?!?
|Pressie from Claire - Dulcinella's Chaos|
|Pressie from Laura - con le mie manine|
|Pressie from Francesca - Violetta: a cross stitch lover|
A Bit of This and That. Shannon sent me this lovely postcard from your home state of Michigan. Doing a postcard exchange was great fun.
|Thank you Shannon|
Well dear readers, that is it for this week. Hope you all have a wonderful week and for those of you in the UK, enjoy all the wonderful celebrations that are taking place for the Diamond Jubilee for our fabulous Queen. An amazing achievement for a great lady!
Til next time, happy stitching
