Thank you for all the comments, and welcome to a couple of new followers, hope I don't bore you to death.
Well, my friend came and set up the printer for me.....all working perfectly, am very pleased with it. It's a nice little compact one, half the size of the big clunky thing we had years ago. I'm glad he did it, I wouldn't have had a clue....thanks M 😘
I'm definitely feeling a lot better now. Yesterday morning I took down all the condolence cards off the mantlepiece and put them away, along with the Order of Service cards, in a box in my craft room. And I didn't even cry....well, not much. It just seemed time to let go of them and move on. I can also look at the photo of Mum I have as my laptop screen saver without bursting into tears, it just makes me smile now. I'm sure there'll be lots of occasions where something reminds me of her, or I see something in a shop and think 'oh I'll get that for Mum, she'll love it' and I'll be a blubbering heap again, but that's to be expected. Sister wants us all to get together and scatter Mum's ashes in a local big park where she liked to go and feed the ducks on the lake. We'll do it in Spring when it's a bit warmer. Sis asked about permission, she was told it would be fine so long as we do it discreetly and at a quiet time, early morning or evening preferably.
I haven't sat and made any cards for weeks, other than a couple of birthday cards I had to do.....I used to make so many cards for Mum, at least a couple a week, haven't felt able to get back into cardmaking yet as it will be a reminder of what I used to do for her. But I am beginning to feel I'd like to start again. Anyway, there's a couple more birthdays coming up so I'll have to soon, I've practically run out of my stock of general birthday cards.
Was up stupidly early this morning, but it enabled me to get some documents I needed printed out. I have a bit of admin work to do this morning (need to be more awake for that, so must have at least one more big cup of coffee and some food first), so won't be able to spend all day batch cooking like I was hoping to. I will get some done this afternoon though....provided I don't sit down 'for a minute' and end up nodding off, having got up so early.
Hope the weather's better today....yesterday was foggy, damp, chilly and grey all day, very depressing when it's like that.
