About Me

My photo
I'm a 45 year old mother of 3 boys. I live in a beautiful old house that needs a lot of TLC with my youngest son and 2 dogs. I am working hard at keeping myself healthy and fit by working out and doing a spot of running. I'm a creative person and am passionate about keeping traditional skills alive. I cook, knit, bake, garden, preserve, read, write and am now learning to spin and quilt. Oh and I sometimes swear.....

In life we don't always get what we want or deserve.  It's no different at this time of year when we're bombarded with images of happy families and the perfect Christmas.  But it's only a day.  One single day out of a whole year.  So I'm not going to get upset about it.  I'm looking for the positives.

My family is healthy.  My family is safe.  They are contactable if I need them or they need me.  I have everything and everyone I want right here.  I am a lucky girl.

So to everyone who reads this blog and has supported me through the last 3 months I thank you and wish you peace this Christmas, whatever you're doing and wherever you are.
