I need some time

This is the first time I have done a personal post, my posts are always about cards and my craft. I thought I would let my followers and friends know what is going on in my life.
In the last 3 months my life had a very abrupt change. Most of you were somewhat aware I went into hospital, I spent 6 weeks (yes weeks, not days) in hospital as I was very unwell. A couple of days after I got out of hospital my husband asked me for a divorce.
Since that day about 6 weeks ago, my home has been for sale and we have dealt with real estates and lawyers. I had to pack up 1/2 my craft room so it looked at least a little neat and tidy and we have had several viewings for potential buyers ( thus the reason for a neat and tidy stamp room). I have also been out and about looking for a new place to live. The rest of my week consists of medical appointments, lawyer appointments, appointments dealing with all the Government Agencies and filling out their paperwork ( I'm sure some of the forms were the same only they call them different names, probably trying to trick you into making a mistake. If it wasn't so annoying It would probably be funny.)
My husband and my teenage Son are packing up to leave next week and I too have started to pack up. I have about 5 weeks until I have to be out. We were married for 21 years so there is alot of stuff to go through.
As you can see I have a lot going on in my life at the moment, cardmaking and blogging right now are not my priorities. Thus the 'need for some time'.

To my fellow DESIGN TEAM members and owners, I apologise as I can not do this right now. The computer is packed up and i have just got a new laptop which is as foreign to me as another country. I need time to learn how to use it. Time I do not have at present.
If you can be patient with me that would be great if not I understand completely. Please contact me via email, I do check that every few days, when I can.

Hopefully I will be back soon
Until then
Michelle
