Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t been writing for a while, lost my blogging mojo for a bit. I think the rubbish weather of late has had a negative affect on my creativity! I haven’t been crocheting either!
Finally, the grey skies have broken up and the sun is OUT! Time to dig out the summer clothes. I think I need to do some shopping, am slowly losing weight and last years wardrobe is getting baggy. Still got a way to go on the weight front but I will get to my target, got help from my lovely personal trainer 🙂
Hmm personal trainer, never thought I would have one, not cheap and I have never ever liked sport/keep fit stuff, but this is the best thing I have ever done! I dont spend much money on myself, dont wear makeup, rarely get my hair cut, dont buy shoes/clothes often so feel I can afford having one. I really do enjoy it, a huge suprise to me! It helps that my trainer is ace and has a wicked sense of humour, he’s my best mate (that I have to pay for!). Even when I feel down before getting to the gym, I always feel happy after a session, exercise is a great medicine.
Crafting is also a good medicine, though I haven’t done much crocheting recently. Gotten a bit lost with knowing what to make. My Etsy shop has been a big disappointment, no sales at all, so have lost hope there. I thought my booties would fly out but I was wrong. I probably havent done enough to get seen but its very hard to be enthusiastic when you feel nobody is interested 😦
Anyway, back to the sunshine….we are off out soon to meet old pals and their kids for coffee, cake and a walk with our dog, very much looking forward to it. The rest of the weekend will be spent working in the garden (shhh, don’t tell husband, want it to be a suprise tehehe).
I popped round to see my pensioner pal yesterday. We have quite lot in common even though there is a 30 year age gap – never judge a person because of their age. She was a very successful handmade teddy bear seller in the 70s/80s, sold to all the big department stores. She continued to make bears to sell at craft fairs after she quit the business and also created knitting patterns for doll and teddy clothes to sell. The bears are no longer made but she still knits, mainly for her great grandchildren. What a talented lady! Every time I see her I get inspired to make something new, so am gonna have a go at baby clothes, well, one cardigan, just to see if I can do it.
Here’s a pic of one of my friends bears
Aw, so cute! Right, time to go out,
Have a great weekend! 🙂
