Well hello, world. Hope you are all OK and rocking the last few days of summer.
It's been a busy summer here - I have been head down in fabric, needle and cotton for most of it and have made a lot of lovely tents, teepees and princess dresses which has been an absolute pleasure. More details about my sewing activities are here: www.facebook.com/mrsbeesemporium. Do come and join us.
There has been a lot going on family wise recently. This summer my Mum has had her knee replaced and my Dad, very sadly, has been diagnosed with Vascular Dementia and Alzheimers. I have been spending as much time as possible with them helping them out. They've both come a long way and are learning to make lemonade with their new lives.
Jonathan, my eldest son, both fell in love and aced his A levels. He ended up with 3 grade As and a B. He's off to Leeds Uni soon to study Medical Science. I could not be prouder of him. We're off to Ikea tomorrow to fill the car up with mugs, chopping boards, meatballs, pans and the various other accoutrements that students need.
I FEEL OLD.
As for me, it was a delight and a privilege to be voted "Fat Runner of the Month" on the "Fat Girl's Guide To Running."
You can follow this link and hear me put the world to rights :) I would be very happy to hear your thoughts on some of the issues raised too.
