Hello. If you read this blog regularly or follow me on twitter you may have noticed that I haven't tweeted or blogged for about a month and I've also recently stopped writing for Hello Giggles. I'm afraid I'm not ready to come back quite yet but I wanted to briefly explain where I've been and why.
I've previously hinted on this blog that the reason I do so much craft is because I haven't been very well for a couple of years following an operation. At the end of May I had another operation that I am seriously hoping is going to make me much better. It was a horrible operation and I've been having a really tough time since. I'm used to pain but this has really been very hard but I'm still extremely hopeful it's going to work and I'm determined to get through it.
I've become a bit of a pro on convalescing and have been doing lots of things to help myself get through it. Before the operation I bought four new pairs of pyjamas so I am the best dressed invalid in the world! While we were in hospital me and my mum decorated the hospital room with 10 sets of fairy lights and won the award for nicest room. I've watched two whole series of thirtysomething which I LOVE and two series of The Mary Tyler Moore Show which I also love. I've been doing lots of drawing (see the picture of me in my dashing pyjamas above) and cross stitching and knitting which always helps. I'm also making a scrapbook with all my hospital bands, Polaroids of the journey and cards I have received.
So I'm getting through it, but it is hard. I'm still not really ready to talk about it properly and I haven't been able to see anyone apart from my family yet so I have a long way to go until I can start doing this blog properly again. But I promise I will be back, and I hope that when I return you will all start reading what I have to share again. My blog has been the thing that has got me through the past few years, and I can't wait to make it even better when I get back.
In the mean time you can read some of my recipes here.
