Nearly the end of the month

Again , I've taken ages to write , I used to write a diary regularly many years ago and was never this tardy !!!
Well , have now finished the modelstitch for Pol which will be in the post tomorrow and I'll put up a picture as soon as it's published . Emailed Pam and she hasn't even sent out the piece I returned to be finished yet so a bit miffed as I could have stitched more and kept my reputation a bit more intact as a model stitcher if I'd known the deadline wasn't so imminent - oh well live and learn !
Got a beautiful envelope in the Mailart exchange from Malaysia and it had gone through all the normal stamping and franking - will post a photo later .
Got my first Birthday card from Stitch and stash today - two lovely threads Six Strand Sweets - Spun Sugar and Dragon Floss - Fire and Ice .
Ellie had an Easter service last Wednesday at Church (Dave actually went to it !!!!!) and she had some words to say - we had to drum into her not to say every one else's words as well.
I have to make her a hat for the school Easter bonnet parade on Thursday - got all the bits but it's putting it together - last years looked so good and quite professional in some cases !!!
Ellies been so tired the past two nights that I've had to fight to get her to have some tea and milk before bed .
Was off sick with IBS on Monday , in work today , leave tomorrow (last day of leave year ) work Thursday and off Friday till next Tuesday.
Dave had an interview for flight sim job Friday - is away at hockey so phoned him - he didn't get it . Ah well , first interview in umpty ump years !!!!
He actually finishes in September so a bit of leeway.
Jamie will have to look after Ellie during the Easter break - I can see the start of several arguments !!!!

March already !!!

It's been ages since I last posted as it seems to have been really busy in the last month .
The saddest thing was that a Hercules went down in Iraq killing a 10 man crew , two who I knew personally . The whole village was in mourning as well as the camp and amidst the visits of The Queen , Princess Ann and Geoff Hoon and various forces dignitaries , we where very busy. There are still flowers outside the main gate .
In the last couple of weeks the weather has turned very cold and we've even had some snow although it's not settled here but other parts of the UK have had lots.
It was our wedding anniversary on the third ( 19 years !!!) and Dave bought me an ipod shuffle - really clear and easy to use.
Mother's Day today and I got card's from Jamie and Ellie and some lavender aromatherapy candles.
Had to send the piece of model stitching that I was doing for one designer unfinished as I knew I wouldn't hit the deadline.
Am doing another one though for another designer and it's coming along nicely .
Started my computer course again but have hit a hiccup as I ran out of printer ink - will sort that tomorrow .
Dave is in Cyprus till Thursday (flew out yesterday) doing Hockey.
His trip to New York was cancelled so he was in a bit of a mood before he went .
I'm on leave till Wednesday as we have to take our leave before the end of the month or lose it.
Phew ! think that's everything for now .
Oh , nearly forgot , I finished my mailart for Nancy and she's had it now so I can post pictures
