Week 5 - 31st January

I cannot believe that January is all but over.  

Where did the month go? Does time go faster as you get older or is that just a myth?  

This week has been such a week of up and downs with hardly any stitching to be seen.  I only worked on Crabby Crush QS this week and that was for only 5 3/4 hrs.  You can just see her little ruffle on her off the shoulder top. I know that I have said this before but stitching on her is such fun.
Priceless Memories
I have a few priceless memories this week

The first was a frolick in the ocean - why is it that jumping over the waves make you feel like a kid again. It always make me want to jump and shout for joy. The water was crystal clear and the waves were only small ones but it still made me feel young again.

Talking to DD in the UK and DS in Sydney on skype on my birthday and spending the day with family.

Spending today stitching with my girlfriend, catching up on gossip, looking at patterns on the internet and have lunch at an outdoor cafe - I had a Mango and Chicken Salad with Watermelon and Pineapple freshly squeezed juice.  Kim had Duck and Cashew Salad with Passionfruit, Orange and Mango juice.  Yummmm.

Memorable Moment
This is one memory I did not want - getting a phone call to say that DS#1 has been involved in a accident with his bicycle and a motor vehicle - he is alright but is in hospital. Bikes can be replaced sons cannot.

Next week it is Leaf's turn till then God Bless
