One Year Ago -

We lost the most wonderful, kind, gentle man in the world. Chris was my brother in law but was more like my Dad. He came into my life when I was 11. He married my sister when I was turning 13 and my Mum died two weeks to the day after they got married. These two wonderful people who should have been embarking on their own lives, ended up moving back in with me and Dad to help bring me up. They were there for me always. When I was doing O levels, it was these two who stayed up all night with me revising. When my heart was broken, they were there. When I got married. Had a child. Divorced. Remarried, had another child. They were my support, my rock, my lifeline. Now they have both gone. One year tonight Chris dropped dead and my sister died 8 weeks later. I cannot express with words how much I miss these two very special people. They are both in my thoughts most of the day, every day. They were not just 'Aunt and Unc' to my 2 sons. They were a second mum and dad. They helped me bring them up. They had no children of their own, so my boys and I were their lives, and they were a huge part of ours.

Here they are, on their Wedding day.

(so good I put it on twice. lol).

Computer Problems
Been offline for almost a week, thanks to AOL. Broxi and I were not amused!!!

Had some lovely flowers for Mothers Day, delivered from my Boys.
Thats about it for now. Got a couple of cj entries to do, so will post them when I have finished them. My scraproom looks like a bomb went off, so need to give it a good clear out first - can't work in there when it is like that.

Fantasy CJ is Home
My cj has arrived home and I love it. I spent ages trying to upload everyones entries, but got in such a mess that I had to give up. I think it was because I pictured each page separately and then tried to match all the pages together with the recipients name. So will photograph them again as a double page layout.
Here are my own to be going on with.

Computer Trouble
Been having major computer problems lately. My (very old), computer, is complaining a lot and can only occasionally borrow my son's computer, so not been able to keep up with my blogging.

I have suffered dizziness, on and off now, for about a month. It is definitely easing, and hopefully will be gone soon, so that normal blogging can resume. i've been working on a couple of cjs. I don't usually blog my entries as would not want to spoil the surprise for people when they get their cj's back. However, the new one I am involved in which is a Vintage CJ has agreed to allow people to blog their entries and then it is up to the people involved whether they look or not.
So will blog my entries as soon as I have them finished.
