Handmade Monday: Time for a catch up?

So it's been a few weeks since I made my internet come back and I've struggled to blog anything creative as life has been bloomin' hectic!

Well.... where do I begin?

I've been starting to set my own business up, working on a book commission, making a special picture for a friend who's leaving for uni this week, packing my entire room into boxes so it can be redecorated, visiting zoos, abbey's and cliffs.... OH and my sister returned from two years in the States this week too!! Phew!

On top of that I got back into baking this week and I have a very handy assistant in my sister! We baked some chocolate goodies for our family who came over to see my sister at the weekend and they went down a treat. Sadly I couldn't eat the Oreo Truffles though because they are made with cream cheese and I can't eat lactose!

After all the struggles this year it's really good to have so much to do! Aaaaand good news to for those of you that have been following my blog and have been supporting me this year - I have FINALLY managed to start putting on weight! I am back to the weight that I was at the start of the year and if I can crack seven stone by the end of the year, I will be back to the weight I was when I started uni SIX years ago. Things really are starting to look up! :)

Oooookay.... enough rambling - you just want to see some pretty pictures don't you? The last couple are what I entered into our local gallery exhibition but sadly they weren't picked :(

Flamingos at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

I'd go and check out the great blogs over on Handmade Monday for some fantastic inspiration and great lunchtime reading!

  2. Hoping that your continues in this positive way for you. Really love the photo of the flamingos.
