Hi everyone seems ages since I have blogged ..it's been and still is a very hard time for me I'm slowly trying to pull myself round and take each day as it comes and I would like to thank you all for your kind wishes. Well I got back into my crafty room and made this silver wedding card for my youngest brother and his wife. It doesn't seem five minutes since he was a toddler running around following me everywhere!!! and now he's been married 25 years and has two grown up children of his own. I have been spending a lot of time in the garden getting my hanging baskets and planters prepared and generally tidying it up but the back is really telling me to quit for a bit now! lol ...We ventured to the beach with 'the boys' and of course Woody went deep sea diving!!! he really is mad as a box of frogs that one! ... Well I am off to chill for a bit...housework is done and fatigue is setting in. Take care all of you lovely peeps!!! Lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Stunning sue! Just stunning. I love this. Sorry to hear you're still struggling. Don't put pressure on yourself, take each day as it comes and do it step by step. When I feel like that I don't look into the future but just concentrate on the day I'm in. Be proud of yourself as believe me it takes a lot of strength to fight like you are. Sending love xx
