Bad News and Good News!

Bad News:  My auntie (who's house is attached to ours) was burgled last week, while we were sitting next door. It was late afternoon and she was out for less than an hour! Not much was taken but the house was a mess.

Good News: I joined a newly-formed stitching group just before Christmas, and we made it into the local paper this week as a result of our collaboration with the Church to help raise funds towards their 'Raise the Roof' Campaign. I'm sitting down, far left.

Good News: It's not much longer now until J's wedding. It seemed such a long time in the future when we started making arrangements. It's been amazing how much work J has put into the organisation, and I have helped where I can......

..... but as J and A are the experts on the venue it's mostly fallen on them.  I don't know if any of my previous mentions gave away the wedding location but the close-up of the invitation should make it clearer. J made the invitations herself, completely from scratch (I know because I asked if she bought the base card - It was that good!).

Bad News: The back boiler 'went' on our wood burner recently and we had to get a new one.
Good News: It could have 'gone' while we were away on holiday the week before and ruined the carpet and floor as well, but we were at home and able to catch the water as it emptied out (Bad News: It was 7.15 am!)

Bye for now

Disneyland? I did wonder when you showed a photo of J's nails and said that one of them was a clue to her dress.

Wishing all of you an amazingly wonderful day. x

Oh, I'm sorry to read that your aunt's house was burgled, but at least she wasn't in the house...
You all look great in the newspaper :)
Beautiful invitation, love the font.

Talk about ups and downs! So sorry about your boiler and the burglary (I hope they catch that thief!), but love the picture of your knitting group (fun looking ladies!) and am very excited for your daughter.
