An apology, sad news and a sale

I’m sorry for going missing for so long, but last month I suffered a miscarriage when I was 9 weeks pregnant.

The doctors worried that it was an ectopic pregnancy, but in the end it didn’t matter as I lost the baby anyway.

As you can imagine this upset me a great deal and has taken me a very long time to get over it and I guess in a way I’m still not over it.

Crafting and blogging has really been at the bottom of my list and it is only the past week that I have begun to spin and knit again. My crafting mojo still isn’t back fully but I am trying to either knit or spin every day even if it is only for half an hour.

I still have days when I find it extremely difficult to get out of bed in the morning and try and get on with life and many nights I cry myself to sleep.

It was my birthday at the weekend and I didn’t really celebrate it, although I am enjoying my Kindle Touch that my hubby bought me for my birthday. Tomorrow is my 15th Wedding Anniversary and again we’re not really celebrating it. Hubby is working so there’s no fancy meal like we usually do and hubby was working on my birthday so there was no trip to the cinema with pizza afterwards. We are intending to go out on Saturday to either the cinema and pizza or a fancy meal, but to be truthful I don’t really fancy either as all I can think about is that I would be in my second trimester now and my bump would be getting bigger.

The Olympics are starting next week, so to celebrate it I am offering a 10% discount at my Etsy Shop by using coupon code “olympics” at checkout.

I’ve updated my Amazon list which you can check out via the link on the left and there is also a link to my Etsy shop via the link on the left.

That’s it for now, I’m off to try and find hubby’s Anniversary card as for the life of me I can’t remember where I have hidden it!!!
