is the theme of our lives at the moment.
Last weekend was very tough but lovely too as we did lots of goodbyes.
And this week has mostly been sorting and removing. Freecycle is awesome as we are able to pass on goodies we can no longer use to others. And we also live near the tip which is useful for those things that are in no fit state to be passed on. During the celebration on Sunday we used a Litany of Farewell which has helped with the feeling that we are dismantling our lives here as well as the flat pack furniture. Of course, that is all because we are going to rebuild in a new, rather lovely place, but that doesn't make the letting go of lives and churches and stories (and disgusting old yet oh so comfy recliner chairs) any the easier. So I am allowing myself a few maudlin moments as the next time I can blog it will be from my new seaside residence. Don't know when that will be as we will be at the mercy of Mr BT and his trusty broadband engineer.
Anyway before getting back to the sorting out lets talk crafty for a while! I wasn't going to join in the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week but needed a thank you card for the choir last Friday and as I was making it realised that it would fit for this Friday's dare! Leo wanted us to use a minimum of 6 different patterned papers. I managed 7!
I've nearly finished my stint as Guest Designer for Quirky Kits. I've been sharing the layouts that I have made using the Footnote Lite Kit
Quirky Kits Inspiration blog
I've got one layout left to reveal but that won't appear here until I live less than 5 minutes walk from the view on the layout above! By then Carys and I will have celebrated our joint birthday - we are 63 together which must mean I will be 31.5. Which is odd as she was born on my 31st birthday. Oh well. Maths don't lie. 31 it is. We are going to the Harry Potter Studios and to see Top Hat. Making the most of London while we can!
We'll meet again, do know where, don't know wheeeeeeeeen!
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day (or not so sunny as the weather has been terrible for ages)
