I am glad to say that Emma is on the mend ...still feeling drained but coping and there was no call for help needed. Thank you for all your good wishes for her speedy recovery ....still no idea what she had though ... some sort of nasty throat virus we think.
This is my 100th post since I started blogging ... sort of a cheat as it includes both blogs, so I'm not celebrating until this blog reaches the magic number ... on its own.
I'm sorry there is no photo this week but my camera is not at hand !!!! ... can't blame the cats this time ... or can I ?? I have probably buried it while trying to do some housework ... how I hate that word ... why does the boring part of life get in the way of the enjoyable fun part. Sometimes the call of the cleaning paraphernalia is so strong I have to answer them and do some cleaning and tidying... don't want then to feel unloved ... couldn't cope with a depressed hoover or a sulky mop ... mind you it has not extended to the craft area. It looks just like it did last week, except those bits that were strew across the mat are all in a 12x12 bag... so NO need for a photo anyway.
I really could not get it all to gel so gave up. I then turned my thoughts to another LO .... yes I know that it was meant to be the last before I attacked Xmas cards but once the cogs actually start to whirl slowly, there was no way I could ignore them. I have put them both away for a few days ... hoping that when I go to my DD crop on Saturday, I can get them done ...well I have to take something and appear to be creative ...cant just natter. Maybe I will take a few card bits too ...in case I'm inspired.
I have been doing quite a bit of my own FH again ... so exciting when one gets a lead and then I find a family of 13 children ... births 1766 to 1788 in Fife. Four died in child hood ... this I know as the name of each was reused for the next of that sex to be born. This usually means the name is one that is to be passed down ... but if it is out side the naming pattern, it is also important to the family. The first two to be born were twin boys ... twins just seem to keep popping up .... wish there were pictures of these people. I now need to find out what was happening around this time to get a feel for things. I know that 1766 saw the final departure of Bonny Prince Charlie from the shores of Scotland ... saw a documentary on him and how he let his followers down ... wish I had recorded it as it also helped to explain some of the animosity between the English and the Scots.
Sorry about no photo ... just look at last weeks and it will be as though there was one lol
Take care xx
