My hubby Mike, had a stroke almost 3 weeks ago. It has been a very weird time for us all, as we come to terms with the fact he will be fairly disabled for at least the next twelve months. There have been complications in as much as there is some sort of 'mass' on his brain. He has had some seizures. He is 50 this year and is relatively young to have had a stroke. He has been extremely stressed the past few weeks due to certain circumstances which have no doubt contributed to this happening. I have found it particularly hard trying to keep the business going and keeping the family bolstered throughout this time. We are getting there tho.
On a lighter note, I have decided to do some cardmaking. I love Scrapbooking and I love altered art, but my mojo has virtually disappeared of late. Thought I might do some smaller projects. I will do some ATC's and Ive got a couple of other ideas - but thought I would also do some cardmaking - mainly fairies, angels and cute baby, teddy stuff. Having two boys mean most of my scrapbooking isn't usually based on the pretty stuff, so gonna use another outlet to keep that side of me happy.

Long Time - No Post
It has been a long time since I last posted - so my New Year's Resolution, yet again, down the pan.
However, once more into the breach. This year appears to be going the same as most years. More downs than ups. Being a very positive optimistic person normally - I feel as if the 'Gods' are really trying my Faith. Let's see how much we can throw at her, then we will see how positive she is. I'm sure we all feel like this at times. We plough on, regardless, keeping our chin up - not letting life get us down. So, when do we give in - enough is enough - ok, I give up.
That is how I feel right now, Today. Probably tomorrow, I will be ok again. But tonight - I've had enough. Anybody up there listening!!!!! You bloody win. I've had enough.
