Hooray I'm back on line at last! How is everyone? I hope you've all been behaving yourselves while I've been gone. Thank you all soooo much for your kindness and comforting words during my absence. Your words brought tears to my eyes. It's been a hellish time with my son facing his demons and I'm pleased to say he's come through and fighting this addiction back. He still gets the craving but is battling it. It was a terrifying experience and I just couldn't cope with it all. I've been so lucky to get this little flat, in a lovely part of the country and only 8 mins walk from my daughter's house. I can just about afford the rent, which is quite low asd it's social housing, I have a lovely outlook from my window of trees and grass with loads of wild life around.
I had the keys to my flat on the 10th April and spent the first week still sleeping on my daughter's sofa while it was redecorated. I moved my bed in on the 17th and have slept here ever since. I've painted walls, a bookcase, side tables; made curtains from old ones, cushions and cushion covers, a valance for my bed; built up a flat pack bedside table, tv table, hung the curtains, put up light shades etcetera, etcetera, etcetera!
I ordered my telephone and broadband service when I moved in but there was a mix up and while I was sitting patiently waiting, for some reason somewhere along the line, my order had been lost!! Just another of the many little glitches since I moved here. You just have to have a sense of humour and a bit of patience!! All my crafty stuff is in boxes in my very large store cupboard and until I can get some craft space organised they'll have to stay. In the meantime I hope I'll be able to catch up with you all soon. Take care and bye for now. xx
