Blogging may or may not be interupted this week

We are preparing to be empty nesters. Our DD is going to University on Saturday. Suddenly there seems to be loads to do, not least filling umpteen forms which everyone in this household hates. And suddenly the government has decided she doesn't exist!!!!! It will get sorted but really we should be packing.
On a quilty note, my copy of The Quilter arrived today and inside on their article about the Festival of Quilts was one of mine. Nice. And something to put into my folder on my quilts and quilting.
So if you don't hear from me in the next few days it's because we're either fighting the bureaucracy or trying to fit her life's possessions into the car.


  1. Hope all goes well with all your new beginnings.
    Don't whatever you do watch a recent video of DD after the first couple of weeks, when everything seems OK and the empty nest doesn't seem as bad as you'd expected!!!! (Or if you do, get the tissues out first.)

  2. Hi Sally, I chuckled when I read your mention of packing DD's 'life's possessions' in to the car! When our DD left for uni a few years ago even her entire stock of gift wrap, ribbons and gift tags had to go too, all in their own boxes. Hope it all goes smoothly!
