The Wait Is Over....

Thank you so much my dear lovelies for all your support during our stressful few weeks.

I have some good news.

Darling Husband has not been made redundant, though whether we shall go through this again for a forth time, who knows, but for now, I thank God that he can now go to work with a little smile on his face. His colleague has yet to find out his outcome though there is talk in the office that maybe both of their jobs are safe.

Maybe, maybe the worm is turning and things are slowly improving in this climate, who knows.

Please say a little prayer for dear Raspberry Grace as I know her and her Family are too braving these difficult times.

I am very much enjoying my holiday, apologies the giveaways are taking a little longer than I wanted to get to you, though I know you understand. I have received a gorgeous giveaway, though I didn't really deserve it from the delightful Silkie Sue one of her delightful paintings, I am sure S knows me personally as they are such pretty colours and exactly the painting I would have chosen for myself, and perfect for my Home Sweet Home. We have it on our 1920s oak mantle piece keeping my favourite handmade badge company. S also sent me the most delightful floraly notebook, how sweet it is.

I have had some thoughtful pretties off A Thrifty Mrs to cheer me up, which included the most delightful crocheted blanket made by her mum and one of Thrifty's handmade corsages.

Thank you so much both of you

I also had some beautiful flowers off a very dear friend of mine, you know who you are :)

We have had a dear olde time of it with Mr.Computer, I may not be able to retrieve well over 1,000 photographs I had on here, hey ho I am enjoying the more carefree me, and I can assure you there is nowt as good as a holiday, which I am enjoying very much, I really feel free and fanciful if that makes sense :)

I am going to resume my little holiday though you my friends deserved to know what was happening with Darling husband and I hope my news has put a little smile on your face too.

Keep up the good blogging work, I am so enjoying your lovely posts.

    I was thinking of you today as I was digging the garden! I thought maybe you could blog in a way that was less time consuming. Maybe just post a photo a week of something special, or a note or thought.

    Relax, you all deserve it xx

    A similar thing was happening to my friend's bloke (he works for BT). Is there anything he can be looking into, additional training etc, that he can fall back on just incase this hangs over your heads again?

  7. I am so pleased for Mr.P and of course for the rest of your lovely family. It is such a horrid time, and I do hope and pray that you shan't have to go through this again.
    Thinking of you.

  19. Good to near that hun! It's a very worrying time for a lot of people. My b/f works in the building trade, and things are very quiet there. All we can do is hope for the best, and hope things pick up.

  22. so pleased about the good news. x

  23. I'm happy for you, things are very scary these days and to have your stability thrown off balance is quite un-nerving... we went through it in December. My husband had to relocate, and now spends an awful amount of his day commuting.. but he still has his job thankfully.

    enjoy your break, and most of all continue to enjoy your family.

  24. well there you have it some preayers do get answered!

  31. That's so great! I am glad for you and mr. Poppins.
    The mag hasn't arrived yet. Sometimes mail from the UK to us takes 2 weeks, so I am sure it will arrive soon. Don't want you to think that I received it and I am an ungratefull b^%$#ch.

  32. So pleased to hear you good news, and I see that you have some charming gifts too! Things really are looking up!


  33. I am so glad that things are looking a little better for you and Mr Poppins. :) And spring is truly just around the corner now, and all the flowers, warm days and picnics that it brings with it!

    Have a wonderful day, Mrs P! :)

  37. I am so glad that the news has been good, I really feel for you both. I know so many people who have been or are going through the same thing, but there's nothing to say that can make things better. Only that we're all here if you feel like having a moan or rant!
