Hello Crafty Friends and Visitors, thank you for popping in to visit, always delighted to see you here, and if you have a live blog, I will visit you to see what you so.
Thanks to everyone who left comments on my last card, you are all very kind and I do appreciate your time in doing this.
Is everyone well, I do hope so but kind thoughts going out those who are not feeling so good.
Well the day has arrived, after 42 years of working life I am now done with it all. YIPPEE!!!!
Mixed emotions though, no farewell party, some of my colleagues not there to say cheerio, that's a bit sad really, but hey ho that's life. It has been a roller coaster of emotions for all of us over the last two weeks, all of us in our different ways have found it difficult to finish and strangely enough, how to be with one another. I've felt quite annoyed, ney angry that our managers and the CE have concentrated on the clients, and rightly so as we have, but not one of them had been interested in the emotional well being of the staff. Won't go into it here, but I felt I had to say how disappointed I was at this especially from a personal point of view as over the last couple of weeks I've been physically unwell, because of being out of routine at work so therefore my diabetes has suffered, the area manager was quite taken aback at me, but honestly, you get to a point....know what I mean. All of us feel we have been treated quite shabby. So he want's to take us all out for a meal. I declined, but I think some of the others are going.
So now begins the next phase of my life, I wonder what it holds?
I have a card;
I treated myself to this lovely CD from CC, Kimono, and all of this is made from the Card Companions, with Centura Pearl embossed with a Kimono EF, Signature Fan Die, Dazzler, Velevt ribbon from Papermania, a bit of glitter, and all put on to a stepper card, and if I say so myself I think it's quite lovely. I would recommend this CD it is really lovely.
It was my friend Jackies funeral yesterday and what a beautiful celebration of her life it was. Many assistants from years gone by came from far and near for it, and it was lovely to see some of them who lived with me and Jackie, she would have just been delighted with it all. I thought I would show you a couple photos of us taken many years ago, I think this was around 1991;
I have so many wonderful memories of her, some too that were not so wonderful, but she taught me so much and gave loads of love, it's like a little candle has blown out, but many lives are the richer from having known her.
Well, that's me for today, I hope I can find an "Oldie" for tomorrow, and I hope I remember not to get up for work either, LOL!!
Take care everyone and happy crafting,
