Still Here

Hi everyone. Sorry it's been a long time since I have posted. My health has deteriorated to the point where I can't stand up for more than 20 mins without falling over. They think I have POTS and am currently going through testing.

It's been a tough few years. My mum passed away from overian cancer at the age of 67. It was during the height of covid so it was really difficult. We had 24 to the funeral but we couldn't sit together and there wasn't a wake. 

I still have an amazing husband and my son is about to finish highschool. 

Benji the Beagle sadly passed away but I have a new pest to keep me company.  He is very much a spoilt brat but he is my shadow. 
Life is a bit boring now as it's quite a hindrance not being able to stand. I am hoping once I am fully diagnosed they can try some different meds to help me. 

It was lovely in the UK last week. Lovely and sunny and warm. This week it is really cold. The flowers have still started to come out. 
I also have received some fruit trees for my birthday. I now have blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, red currant, black currant, plum, cherry, fig and apple tree. It will take a couple of years for my new trees to fruit but I love the fact I can go into the garden and pick fresh fruit from my potted fruit trees. 
I haven't been crafting as much due to the terrible brain fog. Hopefully once I have managed things better I will be able to. I hope to check in again soon.


  1. Hugs and prayers for better days ahead. You have my deepest condolences for the loss of your Mom and your Benji. My heart goes out to you. I pray you get your diagnosis soon and can work to help wth symptoms.


I hope you enjoy the blog!
Thank you ever so much for commenting!
I love reading everything you put and I will try and reply but it just depends on my health.
Thanks Sue
