...feeling miserable....

...and depressed lately, i am in no mood for anything even my stitching or reading...
This bouquet of flowers was delivered last monday from the company where hubby's working. Saying they were sorry for once again hubby's delayed. I nearly thrown them in the bin! I was sooo angry at that moment! Much as i love flowers, i prefer hubby to be home. Now, we are into the seven weeks that he is away...instead of the 4-5 weeks. And still no news when is he coming home...!The kids do miss him too and i did offered to take them out somewhere this break but they prefer to wait for their father and do something together. They are used to it going out together but i think with hubby's job now we cannot expect it anymore.
I'm sorry for whinning but i am just sooo frustrated! Better not post till hubby gets home i think....

I do have a stitchy post as Ellen received the mattress pincushion i made for her. It's the Spring freebie from The Prairie Schooler design.

And finished another scissor fob for the ILCS group.

Also made a small progress on "Peace Inside".

I truly appreciate all your visits on my blog and THANKS so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. Wish you all a happy weekend!

So sorry to hear this Mylene - I can understand that the flowers don't make up for the delay. Your finishes are lovely. I wanted to post to say that this morning the biscornu fob arrived at last. It is gorgeous, thank you.

They are lovely flowers but not much consolation when you still don't have hubby home. Hoping he gets home soon.

I don't blame you for being miserable, I'd be, too, if I were you. Here's hoping your hubby gets back soon!

Lovely stitching and finishing as always! And you've made great progress with Peace inside!

Oh Mylene--I am so sorry you are so sad. Just look forward to the time he will be home and try to keep busy. I know it is hard...

Love your PS--I have stitched this three times for gifts and each recipient has loved it. Your other pieces are beautiful (as always!). Keep your chin up!!!

I am sorry your hubby is still away. A sign of the times I guess: If he is away for another week tell them you dont want flowers, you want a weekend break paid for lol.

((hugs))

I'm so sorry your dh is delayed again. I know how frustrated you must be and I agree, flowers don't make up for it.

However, your finishes are lovely and your Peace Inside is beautiful!

Dear Mylene,

I'm sending hugs your way. I know how hard it must be to be without your DH for such a long time. I hope he will be home very soon.

Maureen said...

You have every right to be a bit miserable and have a whine - flowers will not make up for dh being away for another week. Here's hoping he is home soon.
