More from Henry

Morning all, I am still having problems with my PC, it needs looking at but it'll have to wait. Finally got it going again this morning so I can blog!
Last week was a good week, Laura's interview went really well. Although they can't say she definitely has a place they were pretty confident that she would, in fact her grades were only one off getting her an automatic place. She will hear off them on the 19th March.
On Friday we rang up Halesowen College as Becki had still had nothing in the post and several of her friends had. Stuart spoke to the Head of Dance who remembered Becki and said she didn't know why she hadn't been told on the day, her audition and interview had been really good and she certainly had a place! She is now chasing up the acceptance letter!
Now this week it is Stuart's turn. His school is closing the end of August and he has an interview for a job on Thursday at another local school. This job is for a Co-ordinater of English.... so a promotion.... fingers crossed again!
Now to stitching, I have been really good and put in a lot of work on Henry, although it still looks like there's a long way to go! Anne's dress is nearly done, just some of the brown at the bottom and Catherine now has hands and a book she is reading!
I have also finished the February Flip it, I will make it up into an ornament next weekend. As I already have March done I can have a month off.... although my mom wants an ornament piece of stitching to hang up in her lounge, so I may fit that in during February.
Lastly here is a picture of my new start that on my list for this week. It is a lovely Christmas Window shopping scene. Lots of work in it as you can see.... so I hope I can get it done for this Christmas. I have just sorted the blues out to start on the man's coat first. I will also be working on my next Charity square this week which is a cute Somebunny picture.
I hope to keep up with everyone else's blog.... but for some reason work have now blocked my access to Blogger too.... even though it was doing no harm. They blocked my Hotmail email too but I managed to get them to put that back on..... they reckon they can't see why I can't get on Blogger.... but it worked before and suddenly stopped on Thursday. I'll keep working on them!! So with a slow PC too I will be rarely on here :-( Luckily I bring home my work laptop at a weekend so that's when I'll have to try to catch up.
Until next time.
