We have been in North Wales a lot to support his Mum and trying to tackle the mountain of admin that seems to surround winding up someone's worldly affairs.
We headed home early on Sunday morning & amongst washing, gardening & cooking, I managed to snatch a couple of hours at my craft desk - being away so much I had been experiencing that edgy, pining feeling you get when you can't do anything creative because real life demands your attention !
Well that's how it gets to me anyway !
So I was determined to get this month's Alphabet ATC completed for Lynda & my monthly challenge - I adore Poppies so it was an obvious choice for "P" this month !
I had decoupaged a couple of House of Zandra images several week's ago but finally got them made up into cards at last !
And I had admired a sea inspired scene on Emma Williams blog a few weeks ago so decided to have a go at my own interpretation for the "Under The Sea" challenge in the Journal 52 project.
So all of this restored a bit of calm to my brain & was a welcome distraction !
Next week we have to face the funeral - so may not be here to join you !
Take care Ali xx
