Tumbleweed...

...certainly seems a lot of it around here at the moment on the ol' blogeroo!

Hey!

I'm sorry I seem to have abandoned y'all so much! I figured I'd better pop by with an update on life...

It's been a very scary, stressful and emotional week. Dad went in for his big heart op, there were some complications and he had to be rushed back in to the operating theatre. He's been in the intensive care unit since Wednesday and although at times it's been bad, I've remained positive in my thinking and he's pulling through! He's now heading out of intensive care and towards the ward. We're taking this all one step at a time but once he's walking again and able, he can come home :D

Since he's been in, I've been living with my Mum supporting her and being the designated driver for the 3 hour round trips to and from the hospital - on standby just in case we get the dreaded call. I've had no access to a computer unless at work (yup, still managing to focus at work - just!) and no crafty time what-so-ever!

So I'm sorry I've nothing to show today, just thought I owed you an explanation of why I've been MIA. I really do hope that soon life will return to more normality and that I can totally de-stress around my inks and stamps ;D

Thanks so much for hanging around and waiting for me!

Catch ya later!

Thanks for the update Aimes! I have been thinking about you SOOOOOOO much this week - it must have been a scary one! I'm so glad you can be there for your mum at the moment.
