A Bit of R & R

I won't be around next week as I'm having a bit of R & R.  This has been a horrendous week.  On Monday my husband was told he may have a melanoma on his leg and we are now waiting for an appointment with the specialist.  On Tuesday I was out with my 82 year old aunt and she fell getting into my car, breaking her leg.  On Wednesday and since I've had a sore back so all in all I've had enough.

I have stepped down from all my DT duties with the exception of Ooh La La Creations and Cupcake Cards & Crafts.  Crafting was no fun any more and I was finding it difficult to meet all the deadlines so before I flipped completely I decided enough was enough.  Another reason I need more me time is my daughter and her family are moving away from our home town and I want to be able to jump on the train anytime and go to visit them.  Thankfully they are not going too far - still in Scotland!

I have scheduled all the posts I have done and hope to be back very soon with renewed vigour and a regenerated mojo.

Hugs xx

Ah Anne that has been a really rough week for you and understand totally why you are taking a break. Health comes first and by the sounds of it you are needed at home. The backache is probably from stress! I will keep you in my prayers that everything turns out fine for your hubby and your aunt recovers quickly. But do take care of yourself. Big hugs

Oh Anne, you poor soul, what an awful week for you!
I sincerely hope that the fears are not justified about your husband's leg and that your aunt heals quickly.
I shall miss visiting your blog and seeing all your lovely creations, but family comes first. I hope that everything calms down for you shortly sweetie.
