My studio is getting a re-fit tomorrow so I can start my lampworking journey and install my new torch and equipment thanks Hubby, Mum and Dad :-)
Been busy with craft fairs, projects for the magazine, charity work, study, and the bane of my life Fibromyalgia, always at the mercy of that dreaded condition. Still I'm a fighter and I don't give up very easily that's not to say I don't walk away from impossible situations because my energy is precious and I don't waste my time flogging a dead horse. Clear conscience and all that.
We've been so busy decorating our house and re-fitting it with built in wardrobes I love our home but hate all the upside down-ness of it all but we're getting there. Out with the old and in with the new. Quite cathartic actually and therapeutic. The house felt tainted with a stench of lies and betrayal. MFH, CPD, LBD have been fumigated. Surprising how one can fill up a skip with junk.
Two more projects to be published and one more in the pipeline then it will be time for our holidays. Then back to work and I will be working with a new Tutor soon. I'm coming to the end of my course now so I'm looking forward to a break. A well deserved break.
I feel really sad that Amanda lost her battle with Cancer :( I think of you everyday lovely lady and every time I see purple I'm reminded of you and your strength and great spirit. You will live on in our hearts and the colour of our lives. Such a beautiful person and you will remain so. RIP Amanda xxx
Life is unfair when this cruel disease takes away someone so wonderful, took her away from her children and her adoring husband. It makes you think what really is important in life. The ones that love you and look out for you all the rest can go to hell. I have wonderful friends who have been really supportive and have been there. I'm blessed with my husband and three children, and not forgetting my Mum and Dad you've all been my rock through every thing.
For Amanda and Family xxx
