If we were having coffee, I would apologise for my absence last week. It was my birthday, and I was away for the weekend. It was my eldest daughter's birthday too - the day before mine.

It's short and sweet from me this week, and when I say sweet I mean sweet. I spent the weekend with my adorable nephew who is a little shining star...he is Z-man 🙂 Though I haven't done a great deal of writing, I have honoured the arts and spent most of the day creating, painting … Continue reading Crazy Craft Sunday – ROW80 Update
