I got a lovely message today thanking me for the union jack flag I made for a little boy whose dad was coming home from Afghanistan. There is a photo of the flag in use on Christals Creations blog (bought a tear to my eye!). I am so pleased that her other half is home safe and sound. My brother was in the army so I know how difficult it is when your loved ones are away but it must be particularly difficult when you have children and they are somewhere so dangerous. I hope you are all enjoying your time together as a family at last!!
I am so sad that Patrick Swayze has died. I've lost count of the number of times I watched Dirty Dancing with my friends when I was younger. Its such a brilliant feel good film. I feel the need to watch it again now pref with lots of girlfriends drinking lots of wine! I bet DVD sales will go through the roof now!!
Big thanks to everybody who has come up with ideas for my 70 presents challenge. You have really helped me out with your fantastic suggestions and ideas. Please keep them coming tho because I still need lots more and I'm starting to panic already!
