I hate posting without pictures - it's always nice to see what everyone is doing but today I have no choice
Our home computer has died a death (well almost) it's about at Intensive Care level anyway and has gone away to be fixed - who knows when it will be back - your guess is as good as mine
Hence I'm using DH's laptop and obviously have no access to all our photo files so can't post anything picture wise until I can take some new ones and work out how to download them onto this machine
With only being able to use this laptop while he's at home, the times I'd usually post are not available to me either so I may well be posting less frequently over the next week or more
I've done stitching this week, but in dribs and drabs, rather than having the chance to get a good run at it.
Work is challenging to say the least - lots and lots of learning to do so by the time I get home, run the taxi service, feed the family not to mention trying to tackle a bit of basic housework etc I'm so brain-boiled and shattered that I can only concentrate on easy stuff
Most of the bits and bobs I've done have been handstitching on my ostrich - paper pieced flowers, leaves and butterflies all hand appliqued
Sarah has had her first club rugby match of the season this afternoon - she and quite a few of her team mates had moved up an age group and were playing with the big girls and this was the first outing for the new line up
They really did themselves proud and it was hard to tell who were the newly moved up members. The match was excellent with Sarah getting 7 points on the scoresheet with one try from a 62 yard run and a conversion. Our girls went on to win 32-27 against Clevedon which had three of Sarah's regional mates on their side. A super match and a terrific first win of the season for a strong looking new squad - long may it continue :o)
Sarah's rugby coach is due to have her baby next Saturday so she was waddling around with a very low looking bump and the rest of us looking on anxiously just in case we had to call for hot water and towels rather than the usual medi-kit staples of dry ice spray and the magic sponge!
So I must now get that black, burgundy and white cot quilt sandwiched and quilted because that new Taunton supporting baby could arrive at any time
It's good to be back posting - now I'll have to get the junior members of the family to instruct their technophobic mum how to download photos onto Dad's laptop - Don't hold your breath!!!
