Pattern Darning

Apologies and a sigh of relief

It has taken months, lots of profanities and near nervous breakdowns but I have finally sorted my computer problems, for the moment.  It turns out it was a fault with my service provider and now that I have sorted that I find I have over 2,000 emails to work through. 

We have had so much rain as well, over a months rainfall in 2 days, and this hasn't helped at all.  What with wild storms damaging the phone towers and now all this rain I am hopeful that I am now back onto the tracks and will run along at a steady and predictable pace.  We did develop a leak in the latest storm which partly flooded the kitchen.  I went to put on the dishwasher only to find that all the cleaner was soaked.  Next thing will be mold.  I have the bleach all ready for that.  I did find that my kitchen table top is showing some wear so went looking for a tablecloth to cover it.  I only had one tablecloth the right size and this was one I bought in an Op shop.

It looks like it was made by Betty or Ron or by someone else for Betty and Ron.

I wonder who Betty and Ron were and if they liked sitting at their table with this cloth.  Were they young, old, still living or dead?  So many questions but it is obvious that they were a couple and it would seem that they enjoyed this or else all that work wouldn't have gone into the stitching.  I was wondering if I should make another with Carolyn and Bill?  I don't think so.

Those lovely flowers on the table were from my daughter in law as a thank you for dropping everything and looking after a little wounded child.  Turns our it is not broken but lots of soft tissue damage.  She still can not stand on it so we are booked for more babysitting.

She has lost another tooth and was angling for $4 from the tooth fairy.  She had to settle for $2.

So apologies to all those people I have not replied to via Email.  I am working on it.

P.S.  I spoke too soon, that Email has gone again!  But, I just got it back.  This could go on forever......

Technical problems and a wounded child, and torrential rains - you have been in the wars! Hope it all calms down soon...

Now I have lost my glasses all $800 worth.  This time it was the heat, i just can not think straight whenI get over heated.
