Just a quick post... YES, he is coming home tomorrow morning...and we both are so looking forward to it. 8 weeks separation was a long time Just put new sheets on our bed and these wonderful cushion-covers I got as a birthday gift from my dear friend Tiny. She has embroidered this specially for us. I haven't used them till now. This is the perfect moment to start using them...

I got this card from my FB and knitting friend Marjoleine and this represents in a way my dealing with everything happening over the last weeks...

Last weekend we did see grandson Jim after more that 3 months of not seeing him and it was touching to see him together with Bram. It has done us both well!! One of the things why he can't come home is that his c…
