all work, all play


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.

Fairy Grandmother touching base after what proved to be an eventful break! Gloria is strangely endearing - would have loved to have met her creator at the wood but it wasn't to be - another time hopefully?
