Life at the moment

Add Image


Well l have been away for a long time but life has got in the way and l have had a bit of a blogger,s block . I want to say a big thank you to you all for the lovely comments you have left me l really appreciate them and you help me so much to carry on knowing l can look at these and know l have friends out there who care enough to to think about me and thank you Tracy for your lovely message and a big hello to my new followers . I have so much to tell you l don,t really know where to start, things have been very busy l have been sewing like made for the grandchildren as we are having a big family holiday there will be twenty one of us going all our six children partners and grandchildren we have rented a big holiday home in Wales we are really looking forward to it we are going to make lots of memories. This is my rack of clothes that l have made
and my messy sewing room . Dave has also made me a little ironing board for me,l have been keeping him busy.Here is Jessica modeling one outfit l have made for her. Dave has returned to work for one and a half days a week to ease him in gently but he has had a sore throat this week and our GP has sort of said it may be coming back and has put him on antibiotics for a week and if he is no better then he is to have another scan but there are a lot of sore throats about at the moment so hopefully it is only that, it is bound to be worse as he is still healing in that area,it is terrible living with this time bomb knowing that it could come back at anytime but for now life is good and we are making the most of it.I am very proud of my daughters Hayley and Lauren and my DIL Dawn as they are doing the 10 kilometer race for life at Clumber park tomorrow and we will be there to encourage them on. Our little Chloe is one today it feels only like five minutes that l was announcing her birth as l was blogging last year,HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHLOE WE LOVE YOU. Dave has taken up a new hobby of scroll sawing and made me this lovely sign for my little house and Chloes name for her Birthday and my mums garden sign he made for me. He really has enjoyed doing this and has helped with his recovery so much he has even done some jig saws.My little house looks lovely now that l have painted it l have also painted the fence and the ladders it seems once l have a paint brush in my hand l have to paint every thing LOL. House work as sort of taken a back seat for a while but once every thing is finished l will have to go through the house and have a late spring clean before we go away. Here is Maisy playing hide and seek with mummy dressed as Tinkerbell. Well that,s all for now l hope to be back soon with pictures of the girls on there run so good luck Lauren Hayley and Dawn.

I love Daves letters!!! They are great. There are a lot of sore throats around at the moment, so I am keeping everything crossed. You are obviously managing to get through this with the love of your very special family. The holiday sounds brilliant and good luck to the girls for today. Lovely to have a post from you xxxxx
