So now I'm back, from outer space

Wow I'm amazed to see that I still have so many followers, though I guess a lot of you may just have forgotten that I was even on your list as I've been awol for so long. :)
Life has been...well life. As you know my marraige ended in April and that has taken some getting used to. I'm not going to pretend that it's all done and dusted, is anything ever that simple but we are now in a place where things seem pretty steady or as much as they can be just now.
Crafting? Well let's just say there has been NO crafting. I'm now working full time at the pub and by the time I've finished a shift, sorted out the smalls and done some housework I barely have any energy left to put myself to bed.

I am hoping to open up my own bloggy shop soon though. A trip down to my mother's this summer saw me coming back up with boxes and bags of goodies that I'm hoping will boost the old the home funds. I have a lot of my gran's old linens with embroidery and hand crochetted edging on. My Mum used to get very cross with my Gran because she wouldn't teach me how to crochet and my Gran did some fantastic work. I think part of my Gran's reasoning for refusing was that she didn't want to see me in the role of a service girl which is what she was herself before her marraige. I remember receiving dollies with outfit after outfit that she crochetted for me when I was little, such a shame that I wasn't a little girl that liked dollies.

Anyway as you can see I've not been cured of my rambling problem. :)
Nor have I been cured of my charity shop addiction, of course now I have to make sure I don't go to crazy being on a smaller budget but still look at some of my recent finds.

The most gorgeous tiles for 10p each.

A wee pie bird. I can't remember how much this cost me but it certainly well below a pound.

A cute wee shelf which will eventually get a coat of paint, bought for the grand price of 50p.

My best buy picture is currently still on my phone as I'm having problems getting the flaming things off it. But that is something that I will sort out and share with you soon. You'll love it ;)

Right well I better get myself off to bed, small people to get off to school in the morning and work all day for me. Fun, fun, fun!!

Welcome back, hope to see a lot more of you!
So glad you're slowly sorting things out, it does take time.
I'm also trying to get my blog shop up and running, perhaps we should get together and give each other a kick up the backside!
Have a great weekend

Yes! Yes! Y.E.S! You are back! (I have seen you as a follower on several blogs recently and knew you were still out there, so I was hoping!).

I have been where you are and echo Bekimarie when she says it takes time. So lovely to have you back. There are about three others on my sidebar that I haven't heard from for a while, but they will remain there incase they make a reappearance!x

Hi first time visiting your blog and so sorry about what you've been through. I came over from BEKS blogshop.
I love the tiles you bought from the CS I could do with an assortment like that for my bathroom lovely....I'll be back xx

Deanna said...

Hi sweetheart!!! I'm so glad that you are back....your life will get sorted out, just takes time. Take it one day at a time.

Okay, now, I just adore that little bird. My husband and I are packing our knick knacks and such for our big move in August but I just can't stay away from my local thrift shops. we pack, I bring more stuff in. My husband recently learned how to cross his eyes so he does that when I come home with bags from Goodwill or the Salvation Army...LOL!

Glad that you are back!
Deanna :D
