~*~ Beijing calling.....over ~*~
A bit of catching up to do...........
Firstly belated Valentine's hugs to everyone.This was my card from a "secret" admirer!
How do you like this little fella who will be joining our family in a couple of weeks ? He is 5 weeks old here.
but just how many chins do I actually have !!!!!
The packing continues but all this and work as well has put the scuppers on my sewing.I don't want any large projects on the go at present because they take up too much space. I am therefore just doing some small stitcheries.
I arrived home from the FQ's later than usual on Friday evening after trying to get a quilt finished and Verity was on the 'phone to Alex!!! He was calling from Beijing where he had just arrived after a week on the train from Moscow.It was absolutely fantastic to hear his voice after over a month away.He seems to have had a few adventures,nothing too serious, but has met loads of friendly people who have helped them, especially with the language problems. It is so heartwarming to think that complete strangers are putting themselves out and helping these teenage boys. I hope I would do the same. There are now 4 of them, Will and Rowan flew out to Beijing on Friday, Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors here they come.
Calum arrives home from the Art Dept school trip to Barcelona tonight.
