Blwyddyn Newydd Dda / Happy New Year and may 2013 be a healthy and happy one for all.
After re -reading my last post many moons ago I see I now spoke too soon about feeling better than I had done in a long time.Things deteriorated and the Crohns went into full flare with me going back to hospital.in November.It's still flaring and now I'm back on the dreaded steroids and will be started back on the Humira injections today. I'm struggling but a little better and just have to accept things the way they are and get on with things; fortunately I am on the whole a glass half full type of person and accept that there is no gain without pain and get on with taking my meds and hope for the best. My options are very limited and it could be that I will face another op this year if things don't calm down.Its such a horrid disease and in some ways I wish it was cancer as that at least they can cut out but this just spreads and spreads .
On a brighter note 2012 wasn't all bad and we were able to get away in our motor home a fair bit. I really don't know what we would do without it.
We had a trip down to Pembroke which we love for its beaches and the weather was kind to us . We stay on a farm which just has the basics but is peaceful and not too far from our fav beach Freshwater East; we never go in season so we get the beaches to ourselves some days and the dogs love it.
Then for our wedding anniversary in October we went to Scotland ,the rugged Scotland we love and it was stunning in all its Autumn colours. Again the weather wasn't too bad ,really cold but we had sunny days interspersed with snow and rain ,so very dramatic.Again we had it to our selves and the roads were quiet and the few sites which were open and we stayed on were too .
I have been busy crafting but as usual am useless at posting pics but will try and find some things that I have made, certainly over the Christmas period. We did a craft fair in November which Kath had to do on her own as I wasn't well enough but we did rather well and we have been asked if we are interested in joining a craft cooperative so now I am busy making things .Plus a lady who has just opened a lovely boutique has asked us to make one offs for her as well so that will be fun as she especially likes the arty .handspun things which I had made for the craft fairs .. So enough to keep me busy thank goodness & to take my mind off things .
I do need to finish a couple of WIP too ;)
So I guess that will be my New Year Resolution if any ,to finish WIP and to get to at least one fibre festival this year as I missed them all last year :(( Its Wonderwool I really want to go to plus I want to find a really interesting workshop to do this year,something totally new and exciting !! No idea what as yet but hopefully there is something new out there ???
So I will now post this and go dig up what FO that I have that haven't been sold or gifted and take pictures of them .
