Just a little catch up

Good Afternoon....I hope that u are still all enjoying this fab weather...I have been 2 busy sitting in the garden rather than making cards...but i am having withdrawl symptoms now...so i will be getting my creative head on over the next day or 2....hehehe...... i have 2 let u know about what i done last night!!!

Last night i went to see a spiritual medium (this was the first time i have ever been 2 anything like this, but i will definately go back in a couple of years).......and wow...is all i can say......my dad (my real hero) died really suddenly on 25th April 2007 and being a real daddies girl i was really affected ( I still am...but i have learned to deal with it a bit better).....and last night he came through 2 me....I know that there are a lot of sceptics out there but the medium told me things that only me and Derek (my hubby) knew.....i am still totally amazed and still sob thinking about what she said 2 me.....My dad was the world 2 me and i am so pleased 2 know that he really is watching over me and my gorgeous family.....it has taken me 2 years 2 pluck up the courage to go, but i am so glad that i waited that extra bit longer.....So thanx Dad...i love you sooooo much and miss u even more.....xxxxx

Anyway as i am typing through my tears...i better go and get a tissue before i electricute myself...hehehe.....luv n hugs Lesley xxx

P.S I will be back with some cards hopefully later....xxx
