New Home

I actually managed a little bit of crafting time on Tuesday! However, with all the changes going on around here, my mojo had taken a nose dive and also there was high drama whilst I was trying to get on with things in my Crafty Corner. It's a little distracting to say the least when four emergency vehicles, including the air ambulance turn up in our little road to take our poor neighbour away! Well OK, the helicopter wasn't in our road, but it was circling overhead before it landed in the local school playing field and the paramedics in their red jumpsuits arrived. Good news though, Tim is now back home, and the emergency is over.

So, I made two cards and my September ATCs. One card is for my OH's birthday, and this one is a new home card for my friend Natalie's parents who are moving down to our neck of the woods tomorrow! It will be lovely to have them living here, I think I'm looking forward to it almost as much as Natalie is! They have two Springer Spaniels so some nice walks will be in order once they have settled in.

My new job is going well, I now have my own set of keys for the shop and am working there on my own most of the time - I even built a new display stand yesterday! Alex is also really enjoying her new school and has made lots of new friends - it's so lovely seeing her happy after such a rubbish time at her last school.
