Feels like forever!!!!

Is there anyone still out there?

It feels like forever since I last got on here and such a lot has gone on and is still going on with my life.  I feel like it's never going to be normal and settled again, so I decided to just come on and at least blog now and then when I can.

Brief version ....

The house saga continued for some time ... but at last we are in the process of getting the front room put back to normal. We got held up though as we are mid way in the process of moving our friend up from Devon.  We went down and stayed at his and packed all his home up, then brought him back up with us.  This weekend we hopefully complete on his new place up here and can move him in.
It will take time to get him in, unpacked and sorted.
We took him out to buy some things ready for his move, but he's naturally impatient for it to happen.

At home, we are halfway to having a front room again as I said. We still have most things packed up round the house, but once we have Dave in and settled I look forward to getting back to this house!!We have been doing some work outside and have 3/4 of a patio laid and also been getting on with the decorating.  I now have carpet in the front room, hall, stairs and landing. Such luxury!!! It's been 16 years since I last had a carpet, so you can imagine how I'm loving it!! haha.
Steve and I had to sell our cars and now are sharing one between us, I can see it's going to be his car though, as he really enjoys his car ... it's his hobby really.

Steve's job has been really stressful and to the point that he is now having problems when really under stress with his sight!  He has to see a specialist as he seems to have floaters, but strangely they get worse when the stress gets bad.
I don't know what will happen workwise with him, but he is getting in a bad way with it.

My eldest son has been suffering health problems and is under the DR. That's on going and is a worry at the moment.

All my craft things are still packed up but I hope to get out something and make a doily or something for Dave's new home. So hopefully I will have at least a little something to show soon!!

Enough of me now though ... I'm going to try and catch up on some of your doings ....

Take care everyone

  2. Hi - it's good to see you back. I hope everything calms down for you so you can relax and do some crafty stuff. And I also hope your husband and son get better soon. :)

  3. Kim... It is lovely to see you posting:):)You have a had a heck of a year!!!!!
    I am sorry that your husband is still under pressure with his job,no wonder his floaters are getting the better of him :( and I do hope your eldest will have better health very soon. Hope your younger son is going on ok. and you are ok too.
    Thanks for your comment on my SAL. I love this project, it has taken me away from my cross stitch but I am learning a lot from it:)

  4. Hi there, I can relate to your post. Our summer has been out of sorts as well. Hope things get back to normal for your soon. Take care, Heather

  5. Thanks everyone. I really appreciate you taking the time to post and read after my long absence.


  6. Oh, Kim, I am so happy that you posted. I have been missing you a lot. I understand that you were really busy and you have so much to worry about. I sincerely hope that everything will be sorted out. Hope DH gets better - we both know what stress can do to people. :( Too sad. Also give my hugs to your son. I think of you and your family so often. xxx

  7. Hi my dearest Sis!

    Finally, I heard from you. No, I didn't receive the email you mentioned in your comment on my blog. Even looked in my spam folder and there's none. I even tried to call you (weeks ago) on your mobile but wasn't connected. Really so busy in the office that when I get home, so tired to even log in the pc. Anyway, will email you soon. Right now, we're having heavy rains here.

    So glad you're back to blogging sis. And so sorry to hear about the stresses you're having.

    Email you soon sis!

    Take care always!



Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
