Hoping to get back to normal after a very stressful month. My youngest son has just gone off to University. He did not make the grades for his first choice University so taking his insurance choice we did not think there would be a problem. Turn back the clock to the end of August when he informed me he did not get offered any of the accommodation he'd chosen. So after a week of waiting the University offered him a room, sharing a bunk bed and an hour walk from the University all for the pricey sum of £95 per week. Needless to say we turned it down for obvious reasons. Consequently, we have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get decent accommodation close to the University. After a week staying in a Hostel he found somewhere to live. Finally last weekend he moved into a very nice private flat sharing with 3 others, 10 minutes walk from the University. We moved him and his belongings into a lovely, cosy homely flat. I think he is going to be very happy, and I am so relieved. Not the best of starts to University life.
Keeping me sane and occupied during this time has been Crochet. I find it relaxing sitting at night with my wool and hook. I have just finished a second round cushion and have fallen for popcorn stitch, I just love it....
Smaller projects using popcorn stitch are also taking shape too, don't want to mention the C word........
A whole year has gone by since I was last here, can't believe how quickly time passes.
It has been a year of loss, my lovely Mother passed away and I left my job through illness.
Thing are now looking better, my health is improving which is a good thing, and the pain of loosing someone close to me is easing. I felt it inappropriate to blog whilst I was on sick leave but now I am completely finished with work and feeling stronger, what better time to blog again with the start of a new month and exactly a year since I was last here.
I have truly missed being part of the blogging community, I kept up to date with all my favourites, popping in now and again to see what you have all been up to. Having more time at home I hope I will be able to spend it doing some of the things I love.
