The children are driving me mad....I know many families have to deal with sibling rivalry but it's getting to a point now that they are argueing over who feeds the cat or who turns the light out..I feel they are fighting for my attention...but it is always Amelia who seems to get it. They are just worlds apart I have a disabled 6 year old, who in some respects is more like a 3-4 yr old...and an 8 year old with the reading age of 13 and numeracy skills of the average Y6 student!! I am pulling my hair out trying to juggle everyones needs......and as for my NVQ, I haven't looked at it in weeks!!!
If you are still with me, you may have gathered that I am rather stressed........but there is always something, or SOMEONE to paint on the silver lining isn't there!!!!!
My guardian angel wishes to to kept un-named, but you know who you are!!!
Mr Postie arrived today with a jiffy bag.....I have been "chatting" to this un-named crafter on Crafts by Carolyn, after I had asked for opinions on slide mount dies. This lovely crafter offered to cut me some-for which in itself I was extremely grateful. She then went on to say she would stamp a few images for me, knowing that I have found my new passion of stamping. BUT when I opened up the jiffy bag this afternoon- I was in absolute floods of tears. I cannot thank you enough, I really can't.
Here is what I found;
As well as the slide mounts and the stamped images there were some nestabilities shapes for me to try out, some beautiful blooms and die cut flowers andthe most amazing ribbons!!
As I said, I simply cannot thank you enough for the wonderful kindness , the beautiful stash but most of all, for painting the clouds with a silver lining!!
