Can't believe it is six weeks since I update the Palace Noticeboard. To follow up on the last update 'Quarantined', I was allowed back to work after my enforced extra 7 days holidays. A wee update on that front, kids are only starting to come back to school following a ruling by the Ministry of Education here in Bahrain. There is a staggered returned of school pupils, with the kids starting back in Sunflower House on the 1st of November. Although we haven't had any kids we have been in every day since the beginning of September getting things organised.
In the same post I said that I couldn't post a photo of the project I had been working but I can now post a photo as it has been handed over to my cardmaking buddy here in Bahrain. She was chuffed to bits with it. The box, an exploding one, had the inside box filled with buttons and ribbons. The envelope was packed with stamped images.
I have made a few cards, one birthday and a few sympathy ones. The birthday one was for my daughter Sarah's boyfriend, Mikey. For some reason I didn't take any photos of the sympathy ones apart from one.
It has been quite a sad time for us recently as all we seem to hear about is death or friends fighting cancer. The biggest shock was the sudden death of Billy's boss. The funeral service was held here in Awali and at which I was asked by the family to do the reading. I was honoured to be asked but found it slightly daunting, but managed to get through it.
Last Thursday saw the Awali Callies holding their AGM and followed by the President's Gathering. For my sins, I was re-elected as Secretary. Billy was voted on as Treasurer again. The committee first task is organising the St Andrews Night Ball in November. My preparations are under way, with the posters done and work started on the menus and placecards.
Hopefully it won't be as long before my next post.
