Time for a bloggy tea break

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well and looking forward to spring - a few signs of spring happening in the garden here...

Life has been very very chaotic since my return from Granada, hence my absence from blogland.  Darling mums illness, work, UCAS applications and uni interviews (super son no.2 has got an offer to do a Media HND next year which is fantastic!), Uni exams (super son no. 1 who is in year one of an Electronic Engineering degree) AS exams (super son. no 3) and GCSE exams (darling daughter) MSc dissertation (me) then I got ill as well... I feel shattered just typing this ;)

So Im going to take a little blogging break for a few weeks - take some time to take stock, spend time with my loved ones, slow down, eat well, pick up hooks and needles again, and get some sleep (hopefully). 

My dear crafty currency partner - your scarf is now finished - yay!! - and will be in the post next week.

In the meanwhile, I hope you all have a good few weeks, hopefully I will have lots to share when I get back.

Much love, Helenxx
