Thanks Cheri

I am sobbing while writing this, the reason for this is I have had to move something on namely Blogging for Bliss from Pass the book by the lovely Cheri. It is an amazing book with so much information, and some really gorgeous blogs to visit when you get some time. Thanks Cheri for letting me join in. The book has now been passed on to my lovely friend Mel. Mel you will love it, and you will be like me when you have to pass it on.

Shimelle PPP

To solve my craft mojo I have signed up to Shimelle's latest class, and to be honest I need all the help I can get. I love paper whether it be patterned or plain. The problem with me is I am one of those crafter's who has a habit of buying craft supplied especially paper just to look at it and enjoy, instead of doing what you should do and use it on layouts and cards. I am hoping Shimelle is going to help me get back on track before I sink under my supplies of paper never to be seen again.

A Scottish Rose

Anyone who knows me, knows I have been absent for some time. I will be back to normal as soon as I can, but I am feeling so sad at the moment and have lost my craft Mojo as very recently and suddenly I lost my mum to heart failure. I used to live with my mum so I have taken it quite hard and have not managed to bounce back yet. I will as soon as I am able be haunting all your lovely blogs again. I have missed everyone so much. So bear with me.  I have included this poem that my sister in law wrote for my mum's remembrance I think it is so beautiful and describes my mum to a tee.

I have found through my life that people are so kind not just people I class as friends and family but also can refer to complete strangers. My partner and I were walking our cute susie dog through the caravan park when this lovely man calls out from his van, asking us to just come over to where he was for a minute. When we reached him he gave us this lovely book and told us it was from his wife who had scene us every day walking our little dog. His wife was sleeping but she had left instructions with her husband that if he was to see us that he was to give us the book, The book is so sad it is all about a lady and her son trying to cope with life after her husband dies and leaves her a widow to bring up their son alone. To help with this she buys a dog a king charles spaniel. The story is how she learns to cope and love life again. What a lovely book and what a love couple.

A+E late at night

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have been waiting for an operation on my knee. Well I have had it. I thought all was going well and left my ward for home, Once at home 2 hours later I was back in my local hospitol in A+E waiting to see a surgeon, as my leg would not stop bleeding, but he just patched me up again gave me pain killers and a set on crutches. Have you ever tried to use crutches when you have almost no co-ordination, let me tell you it is not easy. Anyway I am getting used to them now, but if you see me you would laugh I am such a sight.

One Little Word

If you are a follower of the fabulous Ali Edwards you will of heard about One Little Word . This is one word to help to describe your year ahead. I have thought about this so many times whilst following Ali's blog but there has never been a more appropriate  time or descriptive word that describes everything that is going on in my life at the moment and that word for me is CHANGE.

What does change mean? How will it help me in 2011?

Change priorities - Think about my future;

Change my living space - Make my living space more workable;

Become more independent - I can change for me;

Do more exploring - Get out and enjoy life

Concentrate on changing lifestyle habits - Change to more exercise and eating foods that are good for me.

Here's to a major change in 2011 - To a new and improved life to live
