Glad to be back.....with a letter!

So glad to be back blogging after nearly 2 weeks.......and so many thanks to all who've left messages about my eye.......it's now on the mend......still slightly blurred vision.......but they assure me this will completely clear......with the help of 3 different eye drops.....and am now on their SOS list......any eye problem......I can make a same day appointment to see an eye specialist!!
I was so disappointed to miss the 'friendship' blog hop......and [yet again] not keep up with Shimelle's class......but managed to 'hop' round the blogs......some amazing posts......thank you,ladies.
And for 'True Stories'.......prompt 4.....writing letters.....I loved Relly's 'open letter' ideas.....so here is a slightly 'tongue in cheek' letter page for my DDs.


The pages should enlarge if you click on them to read the 'letter'........but if not, it reads
'You've both always loved TV-quickly learning to switch it on and change channels. I didn't let you watch too much as children- and never before school. You both loved cartoons-mainly American ones-in fact,when you were playing imaginery games,Tasha,you used to 'default' into an American accent! though Winnie the Pooh was a big favourite, and you spent a few years BEING Tigger!
As you've got older you both like watching films-particularly horror ones-though along with British soaps,and the awful Jeremy Kyle type confession programmes-you still love the American series.I think I know some episodes of Friends off by heart-and our Sky recorder is full of Glee,Dexter etc.-and we all love watching the CSI type series.
You frequently have to help me with the complexities of the TV,remote,DVD recorder- but I can never,ever understand how neither of you has learned how to turn the TV off!'

Jacky, it's so good to see you back. I was just thinking about you and hoping things were improving. Great news!

Thank you for catching up with my blog hop post and leaving your lovely message. It's been a real pleasure getting to know you and have you as a friend x

And your letter is brilliant!

That last line really made me smile, Jacky! What a great idea to write about what they used to watch - because in years to come they will be really glad that you did...

So glad to hear you are on the mend Jacky and welcome back to blogland. Love your open letter especially the bit about not turning off the TV!! Are they the same with lights?

So glad to hear your eye is finally healing Jacky! Your letter to your daughters is great! We enjoy some of the same shows here.

Lovely to see you back and glad to hear you're on the mend.
I love your letter to your daughters as much of it applies here too - though I have to say I have mastered Sky+ ;). The switching off problem has been one we've had for years but, again, I'm pleased to say they are learning :)

We missed you on the friendship blog hop too! I thought you were in it and included you in my little quiz as you know! Hope the eye is soon back to normal love your letter xxx

Beverly said...

So happy to hear the eye is on the mend, eye problems scare me and I was praying this was not one of those that would have long term effects on your vision.

Scrappi Sandi said...

Great news about the eye...keep up with those drops! I love this letter, especially the closing comment!! I think we can all identify!! If it makes you feel any better...all I've done for 'True Stories' is read prompts & scribble in my notebook...no LO's yet at all!!!

Welcome back Jacky!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Definitely missed you my friend and so glad you're back and on the mend. I thought of you during the blog hop and how we meet in the creative circle blog hop and then did the altered house party blog hop, too! Plus all the various give-aways we've won for each other. I think of us as having very different yet oddly similar styles and definitely count you as one of my closest blog friends,

Love your layout, and the letter made me laugh!

Giselle said...

Such a great idea for a LO, this is just the sort of thing scrapping is made for! Your idea to make the letter TV shaped is really cute!
Congrats to DD1 on her new job too!
