It's been awhile!

Sorry to you all, that it took so long for a new message.

I have a lot on my mind at the moment: my father and mother, lots and lots of work, and lots of headaches.

First, my father is since last Friday in a nursinghome. He doesn't like it all and is very lonely there. So I visit him every (!) day. My mother got sick two weeks ago, so my brother had to take time off from work. She couldn't be alone at that moment! She is know recovering from a eye surgery (did I spell that right?).

My own accountancy business is so busy, I even did some work in the Easter Weekend. :(

All this stress gives me a headache daily.

But also good news: Dorine got her first swimmingcertificate on April 4th. Yeah, the first one, two to go.
I did some stitching on the A Needlewerk and Garden SAL on Sunday. But I didn't had the time to put the pictures from my camera to the computer.

I hope I can do that very quickly, so I can share them with you.

We are going away for a week on Friday April 24th; just a little vacation. I need some rest.

Thank you all for your patience with me. And ofcourse for the very lovely emails!

I hope that you enjoy your vacation. It definitely sounds like you could use it with everything that is going on with your parents. And congratulations to Dorine for getting her swimming certificate! Way to go!

Carin, I hope your vacation is relaxing and stress free. Your package went out on Saturday so I hope you get it before you go on vacation. Take care and congrats to Dorine!!!

Sounds like you really need a vacation! Hope your parents will both enjoy better health soon.
I now it must cause you much grief. Have a great trip, and hope you enjoy some stitching!

Yay Dorine!!! You really sound like you need a vacation (holiday). I am so sorry about your parents - it is so hard when they rely on you instead of the other way around and this I remember well. Believe it or not your father is in the best place for him and your mother. It is a terrible decision to have to make but a very needy one to keep them both as well as possible and maybe you should explain this to him in a nice quiet sort of way. You can't always have what you want (and I don't mean you). I'm thinking of you lots. Love Patti xxx

Karin, congrats to your daughter for getting the swimming certificate. She must feel very proud.

I'm sorry to hear about your parents' situation and the stress you've been under. It's a tough thing. Remember to look after yourself. Glad to hear you'll be going on a vacation - hope that will give you a nice break. Take care!

I'm thinking a lot about you. Wondering if everything is going well with you.
It's always difficult to take the decision if it's for some you love. Hope you will enjoy your vacation and get some rest. Take care of yourself.
