Getting back to normal

We have all had a lovely relaxing weekend which in turn as given me time to start concentrating on Vintage Simplicity once more. I have caught up with all of my emails and have arranged some meetings for next week, sifted through a pile of invoices (although haven't got round to processing them yet!!!) and ordered yet more china (ooops - couldn't resist)!!!

It wasn't until I ventured downstairs however, that I realised things were getting back to normal in our house. Look what's been made for Mummy.....
Yum, yum!!!! Off now for a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

(For anyone wondering where our youngest is - he was fast asleep!!!! He got up at 5am this morning due to the clock change - aaaaaargh!!!)

I'm Back!!!!

Hello everyone xxx
Sorry it has been a while since my last blog but our whole familys' lives have just been turned upside down.
Our daughter Molly - aged 9 was diagnosed with Type 1 (Juvenile) Diabetes on the 4th October. This means that her pancreas no longer produces insulin so she will be insulin dependent indefinately.
When we were told by our GP it came as such a shock to us as Molly was such a healthy child - gaining a place in our local swimming club just a week before diagnosis!!
We were immediately rushed to hospital where Molly & I spent three days trying to adjust to the new life that lay ahead of us.
Molly, without doubt, is the bravest girl I could ever hope to meet. I love her to pieces and I am so proud of her. She has taken this on board like a true star and although we have moments of frustration she really is going about her daily life just like she did before the news.
My other three children have been equally as brave!!! They have been backwards and forwards to hospital at all times day and night and been looked after by countless numbers of people. I love you all too!!!!
Myself and my husband have taken a little longer to adjust - but we are getting there. I think it was because it came as such a shock that is why it has knocked us for six.
Anyway at times like this, I have to keep myself busy so I have been tidying, sorting and re-organising all of my china in the house. A 4 hourly blood testing regime throughout the day has meant that I could not venture to far away from home/school so gave me time to finally do all of these chores.
I hope you have enjoyed a little peek into my china collection.

Bye for Now
