An Heirloom and an Apology!

Firstly, sorry I haven't been visiting for a couple of weeks, (bad blogger) 

I took a little break from technology for the last 2 weeks of the Summer Holidays. Although I don't often blog about non crafty stuff, I would like to explain my blogging being a bit on and off for the last months. I wasn't well at all. I had a chest infection which turned to pneumonia and went on and on and on. 3 lots of antibiotics, repeated Xrays etc.It was all a bit scary and I had so many doctors and hospital visits and generally feeling awful. Somehow, my mojo is still being  very sporadic and sitting at the computer hurt (still does sometimes)

Now, I am planning a phased return to work and working hard on trying to improve my fitness levels and lose weight. I have found myself totally apprehensive about the return to work... I teach teenagers (subjects they don't always want to learn) and my job is quite stressful at the best of times. I am hoping that returning to work will make me feel more like my old self., but, I am really nervous and stressed by the thought.Wish me luck!

Anyhoo, I'm back even if I might not visit so often for a little while or comment quite so regularly, it'll be more regularly than the last few weeks! and I will be reading everyone's blogs (I think getting back to work is going to be exhausting as well as a bit scary)

Ages ago I gave up smoking and took to knitting to help me. I have been making a giant bed throw in the softest pure cottons. I hope it will be an heirloom for my daughter. I have done quite a lot of it (there are more strips than shown in the photo) The colours are softer than they appear in the photo, especially the Denim Blue... It looks quite Cath Kidston in reality!
