This and that...

..First of all thanks so much everyone for dropping by and leaving comments. I really really appreciate it.

Oh well i don't know how to start this with everything going on here and around us.
I think i better start with us, DH's business is not going well for the last two years and him physically isn't that good at all, to drop his business and find a job will be more complicated at his age now.
I am working two days a week and i think i have to find another job where i can work more hours or days or probably another job for a couple of days. The children are bigger now and since DH work ussually at home he can manage it with them around. So i will work on that when we get back end of March. That means, have to be careful spending for crafting materials and time for hobbies would be very limited.
--that's about us--
What's around us.., a good friend whom i go out for walks came yesterday with a bad news that they are going for divorce and they have two young kids(7 and 9). I was completely speechless when i heard it as i thought they were guite good with each other. Oh well, before x'mas last year he said to her that he doesn't love her anymore..what a time to reveal such, but anyway it happened and for the sake of the children they tried but they're having lots of quarrels lately that she finally decided to end it. It really hurts as she does care for him!

Another thing i worry about is my father at home. He has something with one of his foot and cat'walk for a while now. He did went for a check up and got some medicine but it's now after a week and still no improvements i heard yesterday.




Here's a couple of my WIP at the moment. A margaret sherry pattern and Winnie the Pooh! You're probablly wondering how's my patchwork, i am stuck with one of the blocks, i don't know how to work out or to sew the rounded one. Have to wait till i asked or spoken to the one who is giving the lesson, don't have time to go to town for it as tomorrow we are going to the mainland for ínjections'for going to Asia-kids are not happy about it. And the next day(friday) will be busy for Chris b-day party. Hopefully next week...

((hugs)) A lot of stress surrounding you. It's always sad to see divorce come especially with young children. Hopefully you and DH will figure out something in your financial situation. I hope your father gets better soon.
