A blogger's break for atleast a month..

I think i haven't fully shared the changes we have had these last months. Kees has his own business in 'automatisering'(computerization) base here at home. He had started it more than ten years ago after he had to stopped working in the dredging business due to his back and knee problems. With his business here at home, he is always on call even if we are on vacation, although he has a couple of people who can take care of it but still he isn't really free.

The beginning of this year he started thinking about going back to sea and went for the medical examinations and it came out good. Unfortunately, his officers license wasn't valid anymore after ten years. But he's lucky when he went to the company he wanted to work for they agreed to provide his re-education which he've started last february till July. So, he's back to sea and work for 4 weeks and 4 weeks home.

Now, he's first 4 weeks at sea is nearly over, he'll be home either tomorrow or tuesday.
Since, he won't be working with his computer a lot anymore it means i'd rather not be much online too or whenever i want, as well as stitching. And we do have a lot to do here at home and we might be away visiting friends during the weekends especially to those at the mainland except the 27th, sept. for Grace birthday.

Do really hope he'll be home by tuesday as it's our 14th Anniversary. I have to work though but atleast he's home waiting for me, oh no...not at he's to go to parent's evening for Grace!

Have to send this post tonight as i have to work monday and tuesday and be home quite late and tired!

Will leave you the finishes for the monthly finishing challenge and for the Christmas Ornament Stitch-A-Long:

Enjoy your time with Kees home. If I remember correctly, you stop working some time this month, so have fun with the family together! Good luck with your stitching.

Have a good time together, and enjoy each other's company. As far as your stitching: I love the ornaments you did, they are really gorgeous!

Sounds like you'll both have some changes to get used to. I'm glad that he's been able to get back in, and how great his employer would pay for his retraining. Enjoy your time together while he's at home. Your finishes look lovely, and your earlier WIP pictures of Indulgence and Sun looked lovely as well. Your Tea Time pinkeep was beautiful too. You've been quite busy with your stitching.

Oh Mylene I bet you have really missed Kees after being used to him at home most of the time. I can really understand you wanting to be with him when hes home.

I love all the ornaments but the Peace ornament is my favourite its really special looking.
