Change of plan!!

Well, like I said, things never go according to plan!!
I am having to go into hospital a few days earlier than planned (today actually) so will be out of action for around 10-14 days!
Just as I was getting into the swing of things with all this blogging and twittering!!!!
I don't possess one of those fancy mobile phones that morphs into a laptop either so won't be able to send updates!!!
Not that you really want to hear the grumbling and moaning of a woman going through a hysterectomy!!!

Anyway, I'll be back soon, hopefully!

Have fun in whatever you do!

New Year, New Life???

Well, 2010 is certainly getting off to a difficult start!!
My health took a bad knock last year and I ended up in hospital in early summer! Things began to improve, and I was looking forward to starting 2010 on a positive note and getting my old life back on track!
However, things are never that simple, are they??

I am due to go into hospital on 25th Jan for a major operation (won't bore you with all the details!) and will be out of action for some while! So all my crafting activities will have to take a back seat! This has forced me to re-evaluate what I do and I have decided to close down the store that I have on Etsy! Everything is reduced in price so if you're looking to get yourself something unique and handmade or possibly buy a gift, then pop along and have a look! The store will close on 24th January!

So I guess its time to sit down and have a good think about the future and decide what I what to happen! Lets go put the kettle on!!!

Hello again, still freezing cold up here on the west coast of Scotland, although thankfully we've not had it as bad as the rest of the UK!
Had to go out yesterday and it was still a bit dangerous on the pavements - they've been gritting but with the extreme low temperatures, the salt and sand are ineffective!
Anyway, no need to go out again for the next few days so I can stay indoors and potter about making some jewellery!
I make cheap and cheerful, and very lovely, costume jewllery that I sell through a store on Folksy! Any profits that I make are currently being donated to our island community radio station, Bute Fm, that started on 15th July 2009. Run entirely by volunteers, they are a great bunch of people and play some great music! So I'm doing my bit to help them out as they are desperate for funds!
Well, like I said, its still cold so I think its time to put the kettle on for a cuppa!!

Its yet another cold day here - well below freezing, even during the day! We've actually been lucky in that we havn't had all the snow that has descended over the majority of the country!!
I'll see if I can sort out a couple of photographs of the local snow covered scenery!! Its actually a beautiful sunny day today, but still cold.

Well, hello world and welcome to 2010!

I used to keep a diary when I was a kid - full of useless trivia like what the weather was like and when the school holidays were!!! Nothing exciting or scandalous - my Mother would never have had a heart attack if she'd found my diaries!!!

Anyway, I guess times have changed and putting pen to paper is kinda old fashioned these days so I'm trying to move with the times and come into the 21st century.
I have a Facebook page and have decided that it might be fun to start a blog, especially as I am about to undergo some major changes in my life!

I guess I should start with a bit of background information.
I'm not going to give you a full run down of all my personal details - you'll pick things up as we go along!
Anyway, my blog header gives you enough to go on for now!!

Well, the phone is ringing so I'm off now! I'll be back soon - catch you later!
