It's been a while!

OMG can't believe it's been such a long time since I last blogged.... 2009 was a crappy year and this year has been a rather stressful one and I haven't had a huge amount of 'me' time to walk into my craft room let alone actually sit and my desk and play!

I'm sure no one comes here any more to my little blog as I've been away so long and my cards and pages aren't very good but they say writing it down all helps you move on so deep breath....

To cut a very long story short, mum fell ill last July and got progressively worse and was diagnosed with cancer of the womb in October but we had to wait until January for her operation (good old NHS) it was horrible to watch your mum get so sick and not be able to really do anything to ease the pain.

Anyway she had her operation in January and is gradually getting there but it's a long process getting her back on her feet, she's been told it could take up to a year to fuly recover and she's itching to get back to work but the docotrs still say she needs more time to rest

Thankfully she got the all clear in Feburary and no further treatment is needed so we hope that the nasty C word never comes back knocking on her door. But she's now started to file for divorce which is another story in itself and feel this is going to be another stressful time for us all.

We lost Paul's grandfather to cancer in February and my uncle has been in and out of hospital over the past 6 months after having both legs, toes and ankles broken and re-set. He's actually just been rushed into hospital again today with suspected DVT in the lung which is worrying...
Just feel worn out with all the stress and worry for the past year... I'd just like to get back to plodding along with a quiet life!!

Anyway I had a little craftime today and pulled out all my scrapbooking stuff that has been mounting up in my little room, my lack of mojo hasn't stopped me buying the odd few bits but just haven't been able to do anything with it, just have had no inspiration

Enough of my waffle LOL here's my LO with the lovely Bo Bunny stash that I bought last year that I simply love because I love snowflakes and also the colours on this paper go so well with the SU colours !!!

So hopefully I'll be back to scrapping and blogging now as I need to use up all my lovely stash!!
