Weekly craft update

Last week turned to custard.  Our daughter who was in Mexico playing tourist came down with rather a nasty bout of Shingles and we had to get her home.  All plans got cancelled and all flights rearranged.  We then had to get to Auckland and pick her up on the Saturday, a full days event from our house.

Sunday was the Saturday chores and and I finally got some down time late Sunday afternoon but ran out of puff rather quick and had a nap instead.

Long story short, no crafting last week to report so everything is at status quo.

Here is a picture of my cat Simon instead




Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D

  1. He is. Its also the reason he gets labelled ‘Mr Fighty & a Bitey’ sometimes 😉 Yes she’s been in a fair amount of pain the poor little thing but is on the road to recovery. She tells me it felt like somebody with lots of tiny needles was trying to poke their way out from inside
