Well hello there. I don’t know if anyone even reads this blog any more, but every once in a while I feel the need to document what I’ve been up to.

Almost four years have passed since the sudden and tragic passing of my sister, and in that time we also lost her son to tragic circumstances, and then my beloved Mum passed. It was just after losing my sister that my life started sliding downhill. Oh, I still got up and went to work, and cooked and cleaned (sort of LOL), and got things done that had to be done, but inside I was shrivelling up. As my world started going darker, the weight of my sadness manifested itself in my physical being, slowly I gained a lot of weight. A couple of months ago I finally broke, I reached my bottom, I knew that I needed to get some help. I am now crawling back out and can see the light and I’m so grateful.

While my get up and go got up and left, I still managed to muster up the energy to do some crafty stuff, such as these wooden signs that I made for my co-workers for Christmas. Family name signs

With the arrival of spring and a spring in my step, I made some new cushions with this Swaying Palms outdoor fabric from Tommy Bahama.

And I’ve bought some great pieces of furniture, some of which have now been sold and others that will live with me for a while, or maybe even forever Ha ha.

The countdown is on, 20 more days until I get to be in Cuba again. This time I’m taking my youngest sister, who has never been outside of the country, nor has she ever been on an airplane. It’s going to be epic!

So that’s what’s going on over here…life
