Hey guys! I'm not dead ha ha! I know I've pretty much vanished over the past month and I'm sorry. There is still no news of Timmy and the search continues. We've Been trying to continue on as normal but my stitch bug more or less vanished with him.
I had 10 days in holland, bowling trip, and when I got back the next rr piece was waiting for me. I have been working on it and am almost done!
My cousin got the kit for Mira's Miss New Years Fairy and she finished last week and I inherited the chart and what left over thread she had. She was singing to me to start her and after the time I've been having I wasn't going to deprive myself of a new start.
I'm going to visit my Granny next week, stay a couple days in the village my dad grew up in. It's called Killin and its one of those proper Scottish villages up in the hills cut off from the world! Hopefully find some peace and stitch! There's a lovely little stitches shop too so that should help!

I don't know if anyone has seen the news about a British soldier named Timothy MacColl on the news recently?

He has went missing after a night out at the Rock Bottom Cafe in the Regent Hotel in Dubai. He was last seen getting into a taxi at 2am 27th May in the Deira district of Dubai. The journey should have only taken 15 mins back to his boat the HMS Westminster. He never arrived.

Timmy is my cousin, every summer holiday I'd spend a fortnight up at my Grannies in the village Timmy grew up in. I grew up with him and those fortnights up there were some of the best times of my life. I know however my pain is nothing compared to that of his wife Rachael and their two young children aged 6 and 4. Rachael is expecting their third child in October. He loves his kids, every time we spoke he would gush about them and tell me it didn't matter I wasn't married yet or wasn't the right time because there was nothing like having kids.

I'm pleading to everyone to spread the message. Please share this picture on social networks like facebook. We need to get the message to the people of Dubai so we can get Timmy home to his Wife and children.

Please please please lets get him back.
