MIA some of the reasons I have been missing

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I just thought I would give you a heads up as to what has been happening. 

On Saturday 21st May my loving Mother-in-law had a fall and the paramedics were called out. This time she wasn't taken into hospital. My brother-in-law had trouble getting her to bed in the night and he asked us all to meet at the house on Sunday morning. We arrived at 10:00 am and found my Mother-in-law on the floor again. The paramedics were called again and this time she went to hospital. 

In the meantime my Father-in-law was being difficult and he was reluctant to leave the bathroom. Eventually we got him downstairs and he had some food. In the evening he went to bed as normal. 

On the morning of 23rd May my brother-in-law went into the house and found my Father-in-law on the floor. The paramedics were called and he was taken into hospital the same one as his wife. 

Early on Tuesday 24th May we got a call saying that my Father-in law had passed away. He had been refusing medication. He died of a heart attack. We went to see our daughter to comfort her. Then we went to the hospital to visit my Mother-in-law. 

In the early hours of the morning of 25th May we got a call from our daughter she had gone into labour 2 weeks early. We had to stay at home to let in the people rebuilding our conservatory. Then we dashed up to Andover to sit with our daughter and son-in-law's dog. Our daughter had a very difficult time. She started in Andover hospital but then she had to move to Winchester hospital. She was in labour for 31 hours and ended up having a C-Section and little Issac was born at 8:30 on Thursday 26th May. Our daughter had an infection and had to stay in hospital until 30th May (her birthday). We split our time between Andover to dog sit, Frimley to visit my mother-in-law, home and funeral planning. On Saturday 28th May we found fraud on my parents bank account. 

My father-in-law's funeral was on Monday 13th June. It was a proper military affair with flags and pipes if he had been there he would have loved it. After the funeral we visited my mother-in-law. She passed away two days later on Wednesday 15th June. Her funeral was on Tuesday 12th July. This was much easier to arrange as she had left details on what she wanted. 

We have been having a financial assessment for my parents which as taken a lot of prep. We have been supporting our daughter and son-in-law a lot. 

I just haven't felt like making anything. 

We hadn't visited my parents for a while there was just no time to fit it in. We went last week and when we showed them pictures of their great grandson my mum in a moment of lucidity asked for a photo. 

Meet Issac he is a delight. I am wondering about making something like this for us to have at home. We have a meeting at my parent's house next week I will take this then. 

Sorry about the long tale of woe. 

Take care.
