CMP wk 42 & smash journal

I love this week’s CMP quote – I was moved to tears by Australia’s YES vote; my Twitter feed was full of love and gratitude. I used Distress Paints and scrapbooking papers.

The smash journal page uses old scrapbooking supplies. It was inspired by thinking about (loss of) language and memory. Tony’s cousin has dementia and he has PoA. He’s just helped sell her unit and buy a resthome apartment – she moves in a couple of weeks. He (we) need to ensure she changes her phone over and so on, because she has no idea.  Once that’s done we need to tidy up all her paperwork and make sure the rest home is being paid their monthly fee. Then it’ll just be a case of visiting, and making sure her care is ok. I’ve been there, done this with Aunt J – this is less stressful because the relationship is more distant, but it’s never easy.

CMP weeks 40 & 41, and Auckland

Playing catch up after spending last weekend in Auckland with my sister Ailsa. The flights were my birthday and Christmas present – we shopped, went to libraries, talked, spent time with family, and had a wonderful time. I bought a bunch of summer clothes and got some real bargains.
