Heartfelt Gratitude

Another day & another card to share ....

Supplies: Stamps - Penny Black 'Petal Party' & 'Gratitude'

Only 1 month left until Dean returns to work & I'm already in panic mode - for the last 6 months I haven't had to lift a finger (my husband is a saint & I am incredibly lucky to have married such a wonderful man).  I don't know how I'm going to resume normal 'wife & mother' duties after such a long break!!  Dean's contractual garden leave has turned out to be such a blessing & we are both so grateful he's had the opportunity to spend so much quality time with the family :)

Have a lovely day everyone x

So elegant as always! doesn't time fly by - great that you've all had this extra time together, but you will adjust again, cos you have to! But you could always employ a "lady who does....." - just to give you a wee hand!! amazing what a couple of hours help can do!! Wink bx
