MAIL RECEIVED AND MAIL TO SEND

It's been such a long, long time!!!

A Phil update....... Well, at long last he's off his crutches and can now drive. Whoopee!!! We (me, me, me) are all so happy!! Phil is happy as now he's not so dependent on me, and I am even "more" happy - MORE TIME FOR ME!!!!! Yeah!! The boys are happy, as they aren't hearing Phil yelling out "Boys, can you get me? Boys can you help me????" So all in all life is going back to normal. Thankyou everyone SO MUCH for your thoughts and best wishes. They were very much appreciated.

Jackie, thanks so much for your comments on my last blog post. Hopefully I'll catch you again soon on FlickR. Now if this is the Jackie I think it is - in my next post I will post a link of her FlickR photos - she is just sooooo talented!!!!!

Another gorgeous ATC!!! From Domito in France..... It is so Spring like - flowers, colour and fun - I love it! Thanks Domito!!!


It's always a pleasure to receive mail from Annica in Sweden. The first photo is an ATC, the second a postcard. Such a gorgeous lime colour for the ATC, and just look at that magenta coloured postcard. Love them!!!
