Short Break

This is just a brief post to let you know that I will be taking a short break from blogging as my mother passed away last Friday, in the early hours of the morning. I am very thankful for the fact that I was with her at the time.

I plan to be back on board some time during September. Till then, happy creating!

P.S. I have posted a few photos of my mother on my Flickr account.

  1. Dear Amanda...oh so so sorry to hear this news.
    It's good to hear you were able to be with your mum at the time, wish I could say the same.
    Take care of yourself and look forward to seeing you back posting down the tracks. Jo

  2. Oh Amanda, I'm so very sorry to hear about your mother. Yes, you can be very thankful you were with her, and I hope you get comfort from that. As Jo said, you must take care of yourself now because this is such a stressful time and you need to be careful not to overdo it. My thoughts are with you and your family. Carol

  3. Amanda, I am so sorry to hear your news: how sad, but how lovely that you were there. I am sure you will take care of yourself in the middle of all this and look forward to catching up with you whenever you get back to everything else. It seems very inadequate to say it, but ask if you need anything. I wish you strength and am thinking of you, Sara x
