Not had a good couple of days, my mother has been in hospital after what was apparently a slight stroke but the upshot of it all is that she is having to face up to the fact that she is suffering from Alzheimers. She is still lucid and can understand what this means for her and her future. She was an English teacher and a writer and until recently was a very confident and strong woman but in the last year she seems to have aged about ten years and has lost all her confidence and self belief, it's very hard and sad to watch.
Have not had time to do any crafting for a few days and missed the opening of http://www.southfield-stationers.co.uk/ new shop which I intended going to yesterday. I am looking forward to seeing how much more crafty stuff they will be stocking and to the workshops and demos they intend having so will get over there as soon as I can.
There is some great blog candy over at http://saturdaysecrets.blogspot.com/ so go and take a look.
