Simple Stitching

A difficult week

It is the first week of the school term and it has been a difficult week.  Looking after a child with a disability isn't easy and I have had a number of challenges this week.  Monique broke both my new iron and my laptop computer we use for classes.  The iron was knocked off the ironing board, so I have replaced that with a top of the range one.  I will just separate the iron section from the rest of it whilst she is here.

The lap top is in for repairs.  It is only one year old but I can't get replacement speakers, so I will add some external ones.  She spilt water all over the keyboard.  I thought she had done damage to my Mac but I have managed to get that working again.  There are going to be some rocky patches ahead.  This all happened in the first two days.  I just hope I survive it all.

I do have this beautiful place to live, which is a plus.  The early morning sunrise.

The sky and sea when the weather changes.


Even the mud-flats have their own beauty.

And of course my little dog, Bear, is there to give me sympathy.

And I have my stitching to keep me sane.

It sounds as though you will need the stitching! Here's hoping nothing else breaks, at least for a while...

I have tried to work off my frustration with hard physical work in the garden.
