Val it has been a quick month for me and I'm not facing the personal challenges that you are.  No apology needed!  :1hug:

Val,
Moving your mom takes precedence over all. I know how hard that is. Best of luck! Be thinking of you.

Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding. It is much appreciated. Spent last night trying to sleep on a chair in her room....learned I don't have the greatest of acrobatic skills!  :2funny:

I am taking today off and will have the ball rolling again shortly. Please note that I am not responsible today for quirky spelling mistakes or posting of photos upside down. :crazy2:

Thanks again everyone for you patience.....here we go! 
Cheers, Val

Just seen this post and Val as everyone has said and knows, family comes first, especially when it is your precious mother.  We are so appreciative of what you do to make our art such fun and exciting so please don't worry or apologise for a thing.  Just get your Mom well and try and get some relaxation yourself.  Patricia

Thanks much everyone. Things are finally starting on the upswing.

Thanks go to Brian for stepping in with his lovely photos for me. I was too tired the other day and accidentally deleted the photos for the October challenge.  :doh:    I think I'm about due for a holiday in Dennis' rubber room!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val
