Snowball

Good morning all.

Well, things are finally getting back to normal here. Ben went back to University on Saturday (I am gonna miss him so much) and I spent the weekend getting the house under control and a lot of washing done. Not exactly my idea of fun but it's gotta be done. So it's back to the usual routine again for a while. Ben will be back end of January after his exams but only for a short while.

I am hoping to go home to Denmark at Easter. My mum will be 70 in February and my gran will be 90 in March. My gran is luckily still here although my mum says that it's going downhill day by day. I think she's tired and has lost the will now that she's no longer living in her house and has lost the ability to do things herself. But I call her and we have a little chat. She sounds soooooo old.

Right, I did manage to make a very CAS card this week-end .......



............. I have been wanting to buy one of these cute girls for ages so here she is - living amongst my other stamps now :). I wanted to try some different colours for christmas but I am not sure if this is working.
