Last year was somewhat of a disaster for me personally. Family members and friends became sick and I lost others that I wasn’t planning on losing. People are supposed to live forever! It came as a great shock to me to find out that they don’t. My own health deteriorated last year to the point that in December 2018, I felt the need to contact the DVLA about surrendering my driving license. A difficult decision you’ll understand. Especially as I can’t just jump in the car when I want 5 minutes peace or if I want to go somewhere!
The last month or so has been quite busy. We’ve been organising our living room and I’ve been organising my yarn stash. I’m cataloguing it all so I know what I have so I can plan my projects better.
OK OK! I really should have done a podcast before now! You will understand how ill I’ve been. I’ve also been really stressed with everything over the last few months. Getting up in the morning and putting one foot in front of the other has been really difficult enough without thinking about anything else.

Anyway, it’s really cosy and intimate and you feel like you can get up close with the performers! We were sat in the front row though…
While we were sorting out our old house recently, I found lots of jars of yarn ends around the place like discarded ornaments of yesteryear. I really didn’t want to throw them out and while they look pretty, I really wanted them to be a bit more useful! So I googled uses for yarn ends… Continue reading Trying Something New & Having Fun!
It wasn’t until RiverSystem told me he’d handed the keys back that I realised how much the stress of the last few months has had on me mentally and physically. As soon as the keys went back, it felt like a cloud lifted from my brain and I could think clearly for the first time in months and months. Since my bad fall in September really! I haven’t even wanted to knit or crochet or anything.
A lot of people do blankets every year based on the temperature or the colour of the sky or weather. I’ve been wanting to do something similar but different because let’s face it, I like to be awkward! So after much thought and lots of brain storming, I had a brainwave! I have this thing… Continue reading Mood Blanket 2018
