In Praise Of Friends



Oh heavens, what a surprise I had this morning when I opened my post!! Yet more crochet and knitted goodies from my Flickr family. I’m so humbled and so so envious of Annie’s perfect stitches too!

And a lovely letter.


Isn’t the little Babushka doll adorable.. she’s now in my bedroom on my mirror along side my lotus mandalas… she is stitch perfect. Beautiful fine work Annie. THANK YOU


Annie also sent me a little blue scented heart which I’ve placed in Alex’s bedroom.. he loves all things scented.

     We love the blue glass beads and the beads on the hanger.. simply adorable.


As of Alex. Well, I can’t say he is getting any better. Each day brings on a new challenge but at least I know he is  in the best treatment centre available with the best psychiatrists who are just as keen as us to see Alex come back home a happier boy. I’ll leave you with a beautiful shot I managed to get yesterday of my two “Boys” sharing a hug.


xxxxxxxxxx Have a beautiful hug filled week xxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. How blessed you are Helen to have such lovely caring friends. The presents are gorgeous and I’m sure you’ll treasure them as they were made with love. Your “Boys” look great together don’t they, so happy.Hopefully it won’t be long before Alex can come home. Have a lovely weekend. We’re off to the beach today as it’s a bank holiday in France.

  3. What a beautiful gifts Helen love it.
    You can tell it is made with so much love.
    The shot of your boys is just super . They look a like and look so happy.

    Guess what ? Heard this morning I need to do a MRI tomorrow and because it was wind still I asked Richard to take me to the beach .
    Changed clothes and he dropped me off.
    I told him I call him when I am ready for him to pick me up.
    It was fantastic like old times.
    It sure does magic to my head.
    Was walking / jogging and because it was also low tide I looked for shark teeth.
    Was so lucky found 4 small ones even with 1 eye and a beautiful fossil from a Sea turtle. Had a great time but nature had other plans in store . Saw the dark clouds coming and before I made it to the Ponte Vedra Inn it started to poor.
    Mentally it did wonders that I went and I sure will do that again real soon .

    Have a wonderful weekend Helen.

    1. Hiya Yoka!!

      Post up a photo of your fossil finds on Flickr.

      Hope all goes well with your MRI too.. sending you the best of my well wishes.

      Much love H xxxxxxxxxxx
