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!
Can you believe it’s been a year since I started using cloth sanitary protection? In case you don’t remember my original review of Pretty Period Cloth Sanitary Protetion, you can find it here.
This weekend, the berries on the elder tree in the garden were finally ready to pick! I wasted no time collecting as many as my small stature (5’2″) allowed! Unfortunately, my meagre height didn’t allow for enough collection so I sneaked off to the tree on the green next to our house to get more from there.
So you may have noticed from my Instagram that I’ve been making cordials recently. I mentioned in my podcast on the weekend how I made some rhubarb cordial. It was so delicious that I felt I needed to have a go at something else!
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. Now I’m settled and I’m thinking more about other things, I feel like I’m ready to move on and start podcasting again! So what have I been up to?!?!?
If you’ve never been to The Tunnels before, I would recommend it as a really cool place to go! It’s difficult to find the first time, but once you know where it is then you won’t forget again! Basically it’s two former train storage tunnels underneath Temple Meads Train Station. Think Thomas the Tank’s storage shed and you’ll kind of get the idea! Or maybe that episode where Gordon decided he didn’t want to go out in the rain and got bricked up in the tunnel! 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…
This year, I had planned to give RiverSytem’s sister L a pair of handmade socks that were inspired by the Northern Lights and the pattern was going to be designed by me. I’ve called them the Nordlys Socks and they were going to be crocheted.
