Sadness / Relief

Today has been quite a day! 

I had an interview this morning - first face to face job interview with people I didn't know for about 27 years.  It seemed to go OK and my plan was to come home and have some fun in my craft room.

Sadly I have had to make a bereavement card as Dave took a call about the passing of a friend not long after I got home.  Our friend "Brim" (real name Glynn) has been battling cancer for some time and has been in tremendous pain so in some ways it is relief for both him and his wife Wendy.  My heart goes out to her - they were a couple when I first knew them about 38 years ago.  In recent years they have lived in France so we have not seen them.  Glynn was the one who took me out for a test drive in my first car and he was also the one who teased me incessantly about using tissue in my clothes when I packed to stop them creasing when we went on a canal boat trip with them before we even had a car.  He was also so precise in his DIY - all the screw heads had to be in the same direction - I hope my gem positioning is OK!!!

I have very loosely interpreted Week 3 sketch for VLVJun2013  and used Verve stamps.

Thanks for looking.
