Miss You Nights

I have been a bit busy the last few days helping Graham get prepared for his hiking trip in Switzerland with his 2 brothers and nephew next week - packing 8 days of clothing into a 35 litres rucksack - 1 pr to wear and the other to wash and hang from pack as walking!!  It will be strange not having him around for 8 days as he tends to only ever go away for a night or two with work - so hoping he will be thinking of me too as he strides up and down them Alps!  Hoping to post some lovely pics of the trip once he is back.

This wee challenge seemed appropriate -

I know the image is a wee sad girl but Graham can imagine its moi sitting at home awaiting his return - to be honest the break will do us both good - recharge our batteries for each other he he and perhaps bring back to life the huge flame we once had.  Don't get me wrong, we are happy but just need a spark after all my illnesses the last 3 years.  OMG this hole is just getting deeper and deeper......

 I used the ever-so-gorgeous Missing You from Funky Kits - she is just so sweet don't ya think?
