7 years? 7 years?? Well, all I can say is that the move was well worth it, despite upheavals; you give every impression of being very happy in yourself and with your work. And then there's Stephen. Hooray!! :whoop:

I haven't lost my stitching bug. I've lost my housekeeping bug. Now this is not entirely unusual :oops: , but my (other) sister is arriving on Wednesday and really, ... :oops: :shock: So if you happen to find it, please ask it to come home, at least briefly?

I saw it here last week! :D And thank goodness, too as we'd had D/D and her 3 for a week! :shock:
They managed to use EVERY towel in the house and completely empty the 'fridge and freezer!
I didn't think you'd mind me borrowing it as you were Up North having FUN!

:gift: So thanks for the loan and I'm sending it straight back! :driving: :airplane: :driving:

There is such a thing as a housekeeping bug :shock: ? I'm glad I've never caught it :-)
Seriously though, I definitely needed to do some cleaning before going off on holiday (Youngest will look after himself and guard the house just fine, but is not much of a housekeeper), and decided to get through it as quickly as possible, then play with designs as a reward.

I think my housework bug went into the witness protection program long ago.

In witness protection program you get a new name, right? Perhaps it is called stitching bug since. :D

Well, whatever it's name, it came back in the nick of time! Sister safely installed, and we are having a ball in this wonderful summer weather, mostly in the garden. Next week DH and I are whisking her away to the Far North, so that should be fun...! But if I'm not around much, you know why. :D

Just sent off the papers to close Mum's bank account - and that's the last of the paperwork with her name on it. Feels odd. Not sure this is the weather for a hot chocolate, but I'll have one anyway.

I didn't actually realise this was a 'chat' thread! Is there room for one more? I agree Mabel but I'll join you with one anyway! ;) :tea: :mrgreen:

It's our virtual pub, Nicola, so you can come and have your favourite food and drink, have a chat, find a quiet place to stitch, whatever you like!

I'm off tomorrow so I plan on doing quite a bit of cross stitch! Determined to get this Mallard finished now that I'm on a roll and then I can start my squirrel! Looking forward to trying my hand at these new bookmarks I've just purchased too. Thank you Mabel for the tips on the bookmarks :)
