Hello

  Hi everyone,

I just wanted to update you that I've not been blogging more than once a month or managing my commenting very well the last year or so. 

 My mum passed away on October 16th and  we were with her in the hospice in Scotland .  It was a beautiful place and the staff looked after Mum and us so well. She had a debilitating lung disease which she's had for the last 9 years. She was only 71 and had a huge will to live. 

Thank you so much for supporting me in all the years I've been blogging, it means a lot.  I hope you're all staying safe and looking after yourselves. 

I'll be back tomorrow with my Sparkles Christmas card post.

Big hugs and love
