Well the good news of the day is that it is my lovely baby Sister's birthday today .. .. .. happy birthday Joey!!! Jo is 6 years younger than me and I can remember the day she was born as clear as anything. She was born at home in the front bedroom and I was the first one to hold her .. .. even before our Mum.
As some of you will know my Sis makes lovely handbags and bridal bags and spends quite a few hours at her sewing machine.
So I thought that this card would be very appropriate for her
Image and Papers: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Buttons: Funky Hand
Martha Stewart Punch: Valentine Lace
My Trusty Sewing Machine
She loved it to bits!!
and now to the bad news part!!
My lovely hubby has been told that he is going to be made redundant!! Panic!!!
We heard it was a possibility on Tuesday and after panicking all week it was confirmed today.
So a whole new world hits the House of Hearts.
We are not going to sulk or mope about .. .. .. it isn't the end of the world .. .. the end of the world would be if one of us was to have something wrong with us that doctor couldn't put better.
Life is just taking us on another journey we didn't expect and we just need to hope it isn't too painful a one.
So to play my part in the recovery plan I have today applied for a job on line at our local hospital. It seemed like fate that I saw it on the day Hubby got the bad news. There aren't usually many administration jobs going at the hospital but today there was one!!! Just part-time - 18 hours a week - which will mean if I am successful I can do my wedding work alongside it. I suppose in the grand scheme of things the chances are I won't even get an interview .. but at least I will have tried.
The hospital is only about 30 minutes away so I could walk there .. .. well actually it is probably 30 minutes there and 40 minutes back as you have to negotiate a steep hill!!!
Have a good evening and weekend everyone .. .. I am back tomorrow with my last Penny Black Saturday GDT card.
