so what has been happening?

I haven't blogged for a while for the simple reason my life has been on a roller coaster ride and I didn't want to drag everyone along on it.
I have shared the ups and downs of the last two weeks with a few close friends and I must just take the time to thank them for being there and supporting me. Two weeks ago today I was stood on the Beverley Westwood enjoying a few quiet moments waiting to meet up with Danny and thinking now things are moving!
Danny works for Pentel and was coming to collect the last of the contents of the old warehouse, and in his car we talked about products we could work together on and how excited I was with new techniques I had been trying with their products. It was a lovely sunny day. Once Daniel had taken these last few items I could focus on my holiday, a couple of days away from home in the caravan with Martins family. Over the weekend we had some problems with getting the caravan ready but Martin had organised someone who could fix that so after seeing Daniel we taking the caravan to them to be fixed. Ben was at home working his way through a short lists of jobs, the first of which was take Bob , our dog a good walk so he would be settled whilst we were moving the caravan.
Then a got a phone call from Ben, Bob had been hit by a car and he was at the vets. When we got to the vets Ben was outside looking decidedly sick, he T shirt had tell tale signs of Bobs blood. The car driver had taken them both to the vets and then had to be collected himself. I am so grateful to him for all he did for Bob and Ben.
We had a long wait back home whilst they got Bob stable enough to X ray and discover he had a fractured pelvis and a fairly serious rupture. Paul the vet, spent several hours putting Bob back together again. The rest of the two weeks have been filled with my heart sinking each time the phone rings and long visits to the dog ward at the hospital, I mean what do you talk about? Our holiday was cancelled but that was the least of our worries. We also had to help Ben cope with collecting his GSCE results, which had a few surprises both good and not so good.
But today we are two weeks further on Bob is home on strict cage rest ( I am not sure he understands that!) Ben has his timetable for sixth form and my brain is still mush!
so if anyone has been waiting to hear from me I can only apologise and if you are someone I have actually spoken to and didn't make sense then please forgive, I am just not sure how long it is going to take.
Back on the work front we are off to Harrogate the weekend and we should fingers crossed have new stamps with us.
See you there, please stop by and say hello.

Hello Lynda,
I am sorry that you are having such a terrible time, it sounds like your life has been turned upside down and given a good shake! I hope things get better for you soon and I hope that Bob improves and is soon back to his old self. My thoughts are with you all.

Yes, thank goodness Bob's on the mend now. And the caravan! It's really worrying when those sorts of things happen and they all seem to happen together don't they? I hope Ben can sort out his exam results and move forward now too and hope you have a fantastic time in Harrogate. If those stamps you showed me are the ones you'll have in Harrogate you'll sell out in no time. They're great!

Oh Lynnda so sorry to hear about your problems. How on earth do you cope but I am sure you will. Hope Bob is improving and that Ben is sorting himself out with his results. If there is anything I can do please let me know and I will try to help, even if its just making you a cup of tea.
Take care
Love Barbara
