My new job is within the NHS and I feel both lucky and proud to have it, I am such a big admirer of the NHS and they were fabulous when both my girls broke various limbs and had to have operations this Summer holidays!!!!
The harder times have meant that I've barely done any sewing this year at all. I have started making a house shaped cushion that you can see a glimpse of above, and now that the urge is back I hope it stays. I am in the process of booking myself a stall at the village Christmas fayre, which will force me to do some making!
My girls are growing up toooo fast. My eldest is eight now and would love to be a full on goth, I realise now that giving her a lipstick that I consider too dark for me "for play" was a big mistake as she teams that with silver eyeshadow and goes round in whatever black clothes she has persuaded me to buy mostly being cynical and disturbingly teenager-ish! I know it's not a full transformation though as she still goes gooey at pictures of bunnies and loves her cartoons. My youngest is six and is basically a fairy sent to earth, she has the most incredible imagination and the sweetest nature. I adore them both!
I haven't done much to the house this year because money has been so tight but we did decorate the hall and living room in January if you'd like to see a couple of pictures...
