Well, today has gone quite well. Thanks to all friends for their kind comments and encouragement - I am feeling much more cheerful and positive, thank you!
I have managed to do quite a few jobs today - I did some cleaning (!!!), went to my mum's and cooked her lunch, did some jobs for her before I came home, caught up with a few blogs I hadn't kept up with recently...
Oh, and I finished Deb's prize book! That pink one in the picture above is her prize (remember my World Book Day giveaway?). She left it up to me to choose the sort of fastening to add, so I have done just that. I have made it look quite nice, I think and I really hope that, when it finally arrives in Arizona, Deb will agree with me. I took some photos of the finished book, but I don't think it would be fair for you folks to see it, until Deb has had the chance to open her parcel and see it first! So, you will need to wait for photos, I'm afraid. And Deb will be waiting for her book to arrive.
Deb, it normally takes around 10 days for books I post to reach most addresses in USA. Sometimes it only takes 7 days and occasionally it's taken longer than 10 - but those were out-of-the-way addresses. I hope to post this tomorrow and that it will be with you by the end of the month at worst!
