Monday 9 September 2013


Over the last couple of years my health deteriorated.
It got to the point where I could no longer work.

As you know blogging and crochet has been my saviour.
What you don't know if the process that was going on behind the scenes.

I worked for a company that had a retirement off sick option.
This isn't an easy option and it was a long difficult process.
Through the process my dad took over everything.
I had a breakdown and couldn't cope with it anymore.
My dad took the reigns and has fought for me.

I am now being retired off sick 
and I wanted to thank my mum and dad for their support.
I thought long and hard and decided to get them a couple of Angels.

I looked on a number of sites but decided 
I wanted something special and handmade.
I decided to buy the following angels from Etsy:

Flourite Angel/Flourite Gemstone Angel/Hand Carved Gemstone Angel/Crystal Angel/Flourite Crystal Glass Angel
I'm getting the glass Angel in Sky Blue
I hope they like them and I hope they understand how
much their support has meant to me.
I also bought a crochet pattern:

In their honour I wanted to do an Angel themed post:

  1. I love all your angels. You are very talented and the angels brighten up my day. My sister loves all kinds of angels so I'll make a couple more for her. Smile and be happy and keep crocheting.

    1. Marcia
      Thank you ever so much! I'm so glad you liked the post & the angels.

  2. Like yout post!
    Have you seem this angel free pattern! Cute!

  3. I LOVE when people do these themed look what I found posts!!! It sure takes the time element away when looking for something in particular. Thanks. There are some very cute items here.

    1. You are more than welcome. I am so glad you like them!

  4. I really think your dedication to you parents was wonderful and that they were there for you in your time of need. I suffer from bi- polar, depression, panic and anxiety. I really dont leave the house to often unless it is to doctors, getting meds and groceries, and of course besides the internet my biggest lifelines are my church and local public library. I like the angel theme for your thought on how your parents helped you through your difficult time. Best wishes in your continued recovery, and definitely send out some angels my way. As people tell me "stay strong, things can only get better". Site anytime if you like as we all need someone to talk to that understands.

  5. Lovely angels. Know that they are real and you can call on them any time.

  6. Lovely angels. Know that they are real and you can call on them any time.

  7. NO NEED TO PUBLISH....your story is very similar to mine....breakdown included ....its a tough road i am no gonna kid, somedays better than others. i had my hubby on side to help me fight for what was due (ie work and getting medically retired) no amount of money makes it easier - On a plus note I FOUND crochet and it continues to be my saviour....chronic pain is a curse - I hope your doing ok and taking one day at a time one step at a time - Lisa
