I haven't been near the computer for the last ten days or so, only a quick few minutes occaisonally to see who has been doing 'what' as Kate has been here. It is always such precious time when overseas family come to stay and always so hard to say good-bye. I try to remember my son saying to his boys as they headed back from NZ to Perth where they live with their mother, 'When you say good-bye, just remember it gets closer every day to saying 'hello' again'.
So Kate has gone, home to her beautiful new room, here and I have my memory 'bits' around me!
The wool she has left for me to take over to NZ next time I go...for A jumper for Archie from wool bought on 'special' in our little country town.
a lonely towel in the empty bedroom!
I'm not sure whether this was really left for me but I can't waste it AND it is delicious, and I am sure makes me feel better!
Some beautiful paper for origami, my first ever paper crane and the gorgeous wool Kate gave me to crochet a scarf.
AND the wedding! The whole reason for her trip! It was very cold, the little 'fur' stoles the girls wore were a wonderful idea and looked so pretty. Grandson no 6, aged 7 1/2, after watching the bride walking down the aisle with her father returned to his seat said to his mother,'That was awesome!' I think we all felt the same thing!
We had a lovely few days together and I am now returning to some sort of normality. If only Kate had been here for a few more days maybe we might have worked in the garden!!!!!!! No, I think it is just up to me!!
