If you are looking for a bright and cheery post then feel free to skip past as this isn't one. The past few weeks have been extremely hard emotionally.
The week before Christmas saw me having an MRI scan at the local hospital. Two years ago I had a tumour removed from my abdomen and there's a chance it could have returned. I'm nervously awaiting the results but because of the holidays they are slightly delayed.
The week of Christmas a dickhead of a taxi driver ran a red light at speed and wiped out my car. No one was hurt thankfully, although I was very shaken up and had to go to hospital to check all was ok. My car was totalled so spent the last two weeks car less. Luckily hubby has a work van and I could borrow my mothers car when I needed one but it's not the same.
Lastly and more devasting my constant companion and beloved black labrador Stan became ill on the day after Christmas and despite the efforts of our vet I had to make the heartbreaking decision yesterday to have him put to sleep.
Words cannot even come close to how heartbroken we all are.
So please forgive me if I haven't replied to your emails or visited your blog. I've not been in my sewing room or even looked at fabric for the last few weeks. You have my word that normal service will resume eventually.
