since we met you baby?
wow. it seems like 10 years and just a few months all at the same time. you've changed so much. from a crinkly, tiny, delicate thing to a chubby, cheeky, noisy, giggly little person.
you have made our lives richer than i could have ever imagined and we love you so very much. happy birthday, little one. here's looking forward to a year full of new adventures and lots more laughter and happiness.

i've been back in the business now for the best part of 2 months. i'm a holistic therapist and am absolutely over the moon at being able to treat clients again. admittedly i only do one day a week, renting a room in a small salon in the town. business is picking up slowly but surely. this week i performed a massage on a client who insisted on bringing her 15 month old baby with her. he screamed for the whole hour whilst i had to maneuver around the pram in a manner houdini would have been proud of. i think i should have offered to look after her child for the hour. she would have had a more relaxing time!
working only a few hours a week does have it's advantages. the garden is beginning to mature and pink beetroot and potato mash is a sure favorite with you know who.
i have been able to make this sock monkey. her name is gloria and she was conceived from a pair of ex-army socks in a flurry of wool needles and felt.
i have also been busy working on a birthday present for my lovely nephew stan who we will see this weekend at his birthday party. cant wait. hope the weather holds out.

the other day when i went to check my little post tray at the marina, i was excited to see a package there waiting for me. even more exciting, it was from the other side of the world! in it beautifully tied up with a little note was this sweet and lovely brooch from the very talented fliss at udder. i was lucky enough to win it thanks to ochre who picked my name out at the recent udder brooch giveaway. thank you so much fliss, i really love it. and it's just inspiring to see so much handmade goodness out there.
i was also really pleased when i went to visit mum a few days ago and we managed to get an old sewing machine working that she acquired from a charity shop a while back. and now i am looking forward to getting on with all the things i can make using it. i can't wait!
