About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

My Boy is Coming Home Not the Usual WOYWW

Conor is coming home....Conor is coming home.... Conor is coming home.....

Thank You Everyone who kept him in their prayers and thoughts during his tour of Afghanistan.

My soldier Grandson is in Cyprus at the moment en route back to the UK.
I say we are happy and grateful is an understatement. 
We are more than Grateful. More than Happy.

Our boy was injured out on patrol and sustained four broken ribs.
But we did not allow our tears to flow, well not for too long.
Two boys he was out on patrol with are now double amputee's
so our tears and thoughts are for those boys and their families.

I think there may be some partying around here this weekend

God is Good


  1. That's fantastic news and a relief for you all.
