I'm back!

I've been awol for way too long, and for that I'm very sorry. It's not an excuse, but in my defence, I've been on Jury Service - now I know that some would LOVE to do Jury Service, but trust me, I'm not one of them. 

I was lucky in a way, as initially, my letter came and said I would have to go to the Old Bailey - but luckily, on the day I did my trial journey, I got a phone call, asking if I wouldn't mind changing to a local Crown Court.  Well, if the chap asking me had been in front of me, I'd have kissed him LOL. Mind you, I thought stupidly, that by being local, I would only get to do 2 weeks ...ooohhh no! ... 4 weeks later - I'm free again. 

So I am trying to catch up, and find out what you've all been up too - so I'm happy to say I'm back and blog reading again ... and yes, shockingly enough, I'm even feeling quite creative - so watch this space.

  4. Oh my goodness, 4 WEEKS. I recently received a questionnaire for an upcoming jury selection, but honestly have my fingers crossed I won't be picked. Glad to see you back & looking forward to seeing some creativity flowing from this space soon! :>)

  5. Welcome back - I would still love to do Jury Service - got out of it once when the kids were small and have never been asked again!

  6. Great to have you back :D and can't wait to see what you are going to create....I'm hoping to manage some creativity as I have some new papers to play with and I must cut them up rather than just look at how lovely they are LOL.

  11. I did wonder how you were getting on! 4 weeks is a long time! Jury service is interesting but all the hanging around bugged me. I just turned 18 when i was called to a local crown court and then again about ten years later.Luckily this time I was studying for work exams so i managed to get out of it. I don't envy you!! Look forward to seeing all your creativities xx
