An update

Thought I would write a little update of what has been happening around here this last month.

Firstly as some of you would know Google Reader is going to be dismantled as from 1 July 2013.  It will only affect those who follow by Google Reader.  As I understand it, those lovely people who are featured in the widget will still be able to follow this blog.  But for any of you who follow by Google Reader I have now placed a new gadget so, if you wish you can follow by email.  This means when I post something you will receive an email from me.  The choice is yours.

The main reason I haven't written this month is my dear Mum, Pearl passed and is now with my Dad, Frank in his heavenly home, where she can fuss over him and he will sit back and enjoy it, just like in the 'old' days.

I think I have just about caught up with all the things one does in a time like this - the paperwork, packing and sorting Mum's stuff - she didn't have a lot as the last 2 years was spent living in an Aged Care facility here in Anglesea, and making sure family members have some memories to keep.  Very sad, but it still has to be done. I'm half-way through the 'thank you's' then I can relax and get back to blogging and sewing; or sewing and blogging.

Take care,  Joy

Condolences on your loss.

Dear Joy, my condolences also. Ken lost his Mum on 31st December, and still gets a bit teary even though at 99 she had lived a long and productive life and we were with her at the end, holding her hand. It is such a difficult time as you said, with paperwork, sorting out what's left of their belongings, but take comfort with your family and friends. I look forward to seeing you stitching and blogging again as soon as you feel up to it.

Having our parents into very old age (mine were 89 and 91) and we're never ready to lose them. But caring for them is holy work and we are blessed to be able to do it. God bless you as you handle the essentials, get some needed rest, and get back to sewing when the time is right.
