Robert's photo -I forgot...I call him Robert but the rest of the family call him Bob because he has a son called Robert. Names can be annoying can't they. My name is Matilda Jane and until I was seven years old I was called Tilly. My father heard a child calling 'Tully' and he was horrified and said that from that day on I was not to answer to anything but Jane. It was easy for me because I just moved to another school and was known as Jane. The biggest problem was Robert because he kept calling me Til. Till I answered really... He was just the best big brother ever and it is not fair what has happened to him. He was a whiz on the computer and read mountains of books all his life, and absolutely loved music, so the things the experts are telling us help prevent Alzheimer's, don't really help at all. If it is decreed I am afraid there is no escape.
My youngest son Stuart gave me a laptop yesterday so I need to check out how to use it efficiently as I was a bit ham fisted to begin with.
Till next time-and I will try to be here more regularly:)

May 21st

Well I said I was back but already a month has passed since I said that. I feel as if the weeks are flying and I am not achieving a lot. I try to visit my Sister in law at least once a week but it is now over a week since I visited. I visited my brother Bob (he has Alzheimer's) and had a cup of coffee with him which was nice. Managed to take a photo which I will post. I then managed to rush in and show Elaine the photo but couldn't stay as I had shopping in the car and it is still very warm here at present.
Today I have managed to finish some cards, seven in all-thank you cards so I will post those too.
Angela Sargeant is my Stampin'Up dealer and these cards were made using the Framelits which I purchased from her I really love these and as soon as money permits I shall purchase the stamps to go with them. Patience-I have learned this after all this time. Well worth waiting for.
