Sorry I haven't posted but life  has been busy!!!    Between working full time now that the girls are off on school holidays, going to Aberdeen for a fabulous weekend with Sue and Julia, then coming home to the news that our son Christopher was in hospital.   They had to come home a few days early from their holiday.  Thankfully they were just in Germany ( been to Playmobil land)  so they weren't to far and were able to get on an earlier ferry.   It was a case of off the ferry straight home and into Ninewells hospital.   His  platelet count was very, very low and seeing how Christopher has had two kidney transplants it was very worrying.  With waiting and getting home and to Ninewells where they know him he was in good hands and got started on the right treatment.   With him being in hospital we all had to rally round and babysit the their two girls.   So after work it was a case of me driving across to theirs and looking after the girls - so very long days wasn't the word.   He has been allowed home as he doesn't do well in there, has to go up every day and have blood tests and has to rest. But is on the mend.

Now I haven't had time to craft, had an order for a baby basket so had to do that, as I had just been waiting to hear what sex the baby was.   So today while the girls were out riding their ponies with the Groom, I took the dogs for a lovely walk round the loch.

Beautiful and peaceful.

This afternoon I am taking the girls to get their hairs cut, and boy do they need it chopping.  As I say it looks like rats tails.   Then they are off to a friends for tea, so I get away home early!!! Now how I am looking forward to that.

Now if I have miss commenting on your blogs do forgive me I will try and get round as some time, but if I sit on my iPad reading and commenting on blogs I just wouldn't get anything done.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my voucher holder.

  10. hi Hazel, so sorry to hear about Christopher, hope he continues to make good progress.
    beautiful photos..
    you take care pam x

  11. First, sorry to hear about your son's difficulties and hope he is mending quickly. Can just imagine this is very scary & worrisome. That is not to worry about blogging! Second, thanks for sharing the lovely photo of your area. You're a terrific photographer and live in a very scenic surrounding. It's good of you to share with those of us who won't ever get to enjoy it. And yes, I think the red fern birthday card was in the lightbox when I was taking the craft space photos. It's been done for a while, just needed to take a picture and do a post! Prayers for Christopher, and for you as well. God Bless, TFS & hugs too.

  12. Hi Hazel
    Never any need to apologise chuck. Real life is more important. Glad to hear Christopher is improving. Hopefully, he will be well again in no time.
    Sometimes its nice to just be somewhere when all you can hear is birdsong and feel the warm Sun on your face so I bet your walk was wonderful.
    Don't work too hard and best wishes to Christopher.
    Take care.
