keeping myself busy

I have spent a great deal of energy over the past few days concentrating on keeping myself busy.
I have spent time with family, in person and on the telephone, talked and hugged and got drunk with friends, cried until it hurt, gone down memory lane quite a few times, slept at weird times of the day, eaten when I've remembered to, picked packed and posted orders and of course sewing and crafting.

All of the above have helped as did all of your comments. I was so touched that people took time to leave me a comment and to send me kind thoughts and wishes. Thank you so much to every one who sent a comment or email. My Mum & Dad (Grandad was Mum's Father) sat and read them too and were equally touched. So a BIG thank you from us all :-)

I'm afraid that the photos I have just taken are all a bit dark and blurry but I have uploaded them anyway!!

The monkeys were half made sometime last week and I finished them off recently, as were the happy trees (still not completely finished) The brooch pins I ordered a while ago and spent time bagging them and doing the packaging (that got me through a good 2-3 hours)

And I have a lot more planned to keep me even busier :-)

Thanks for being there, it really has meant a lot :-)

Glad that you have managed to see yourself through the difficult bit. I guess your energy has to be channelled into something, so why not the business!

Keep smiling
