The Candle In The Lantern

It’s been 567 days (and about 3 hours!), since my mum died. Since we watched her gasp her last breath, and feel strangely relieved (well, I did. I can’t speak for anyone else involved). It was on the afternoon of 5th December 2015, and if my memory serves me right it, it was a Saturday. …

One Of Those Personal Blogs…

I’m having a poo month. I’ve been “fine” for a few months. I was pretty sure that I was getting better, but I’m back to being a bit of a wreck. And I thought I’d put it here. Here’s a load of honesty for you: I’m a functioning human, I get by pretty well. I’ve…

Quick catch up!! 

If you don’t follow my Instagram, here’s a catch up of what I’ve been up to in the last week or so. I’ve been pretty multicraftual. So I ran out of citric acid. It was a nightmare. The only vinegar they sell in the village is that brown stuff you put on your chips. And…

What a week!!

No, this isn’t a Free Friday blog post, but I may do one of those this evening! I’ve had a super busy week, because the Easter holidays start next week. Having a small person around is like shoveling snow in a blizzard! So dyeing will be limited for two weeks. With that in mind, I’ve…

First post of 2017!!

So, let’s kick off with new years resolutions (some of you recoil in horror, I know it’s no longer cool to have them!). Anyway, this year I’m…

The End Of The Year Is Looming…

Having a mental health day! I haven’t written anything in a while, I think the last blog post was a yarn club reveal. So I thought I would write something. I recently posted on Facebook about cancelling my November Childhood Favourites yarn club, and finishing the year with my 2016 Year In Review club at Christmas. So…

Elastic Band Day

Today I woke up feeling… Not very OK. So I thought I would post a bit about my own anxiety. The title is simply a reference to my coping technique. I think I read it in a blog years ago, or saw it on TV, but if you put an elastic band or hair band…
