I really haven't felt like blogging this week. I know that you'll all appreciate that sometimes things happen and it doesn't feel right to witter on in blogland as if nothing had happened.
I got some bad news on Monday morning. My lovely cousin, who is only two years older than me, has been told that his cancer has spread. That's all I really want to say on here.
I've been keeping myself busy with the children, trying hard to enjoy the moment.
My Mum always told me to take each day as it comes.
We've made the most of the sunshine down here, packed picnics and visited some of our favourite places with friends.
Time at home has seen me doing nurturing things like baking bread - I've tried to make bread every day this week.
This is today's offering made with some lovely locally milled granary flour.
Minx had a tap-dancing exam today and we followed that up with a trip to the supermarket. My two beasties decided to play up when I was packing the shopping. The cashier did the old 'Huh, and it's only been a week!' thing.
How I didn't just tell her to stick the shopping I don't know!! Part of that shopping was something I've wanted for ages *so it's a good job I kept my cool!
*(Half price at Sainsburys right now!!)
The kids have had their moments this week but on the whole we've been good friends and are getting into the holiday groove.
The urge to be crafty has faded slightly but if I get a chance I'll be starting some handquilting this weekend :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend xxxxxxxx
