I haven't been blogging for the past couple of months as I've not been able to craft anything due to lack of time, changing circumstances and the pressures inflicted by Real Life. I've really missed it and, I've sorely missed all of those who took the time to visit here and to leave your lovely comments.
Sometimes, in life, it seems that you don't always get what you hope/plan for and so, the past few months have been a time of re-adjustment. Those of you who have visited this blog over time will know this was due to be a year of big change for me. Sadly, many of my plans have had to be abandoned, or have fallen by the wayside altogether. But, you know, perhaps if you don't get something, its because you don't really need it or, aren't really meant to have it after all.
In brief, everything I had planned has had to be delayed for a couple of years at least. And, new plans have been made. I am applying to be a foster parent .... I need to have some little people in my life again ... its been too long! We nearly lost my Dad (again) today. He became very seriously ill yesterday evening but today had his scheduled triple heart bypass operation afterall and we are told he is making a good recovery. My Dad and his nine lives! I'm not sure our hearts can take much more of this let alone his! I'm sure you can imagine our relief.
And so, I need/want/long to get back to my art. I don't know when and I don't know how, but it is once again becoming a priority for me. I shall be making a tiny reappearance (start small I say) in the coming few days I hope (gently does it) and getting back to visiting everybody's blogs again. Until I'd started writing this, I'd kinda forgotten just how good it feels.
See you soon
