Oh my goodness, I can't believe the last time I blogged was in April.....
I don't know where the time has gone although I must admit life has been a little crazy, but what's new in CB-world. On top of crazy stuff I just totally lost my mojo for all forms of crafting last year. I think not having my own private sanctuary to make a mess and leave it hasn't helped. So although I am crafting again I'm afraid the rubber stamping is still not happening.... My New Year resolution was to attend every monthly meeting of our little rubber stamping group.....FAILED....I had to dip out of the January meeting because of work so now I am targetting the February one.
So what's been happening here in the forest....well, in May hubby had a big reconstruction job on his leg to try and correct the damage he had done in China. That involved quite a long post-op recovery which is still on-going. He is still attending for physio on a regular basis and now has 2 further operations to look forward to as the leg still isn't right, despite being like the bionic man with a load of metalwork inside.

Then later that month we hot-footed it to London to spring a surprise birthday meal on #1 Son who was turning 30. I think there was about 15 of us in total, including grand-daughter, and it was a brilliant evening even if he did keep us waiting as he was shopping in Next.....
August wasn't such a good month as it saw us saying goodbye to our beautiful labrador. It was all very sudden and totally unexpected and is still very raw for us.
September wasn't brilliant either as I managed to write off my car.....fortunately I wasn't hurt and it could have been much worse, but another drain on the purse strings as #1 Son took me car shopping. I shocked everyone by getting a bright red car....I always vowed I wouldn't have a red car but hey ho. I love it despite the fact that a stupid woman drove into it while it was parked last week and has done over £600 of damage...NOT HAPPY. On the plus side, 2 witnesses came forward and I waited for her to return to her car where she declared that she had no idea that she had hit my car.....least said.

A hectic Christmas soon followed and now it is 2014 and I promise, yet again, to blog more regularly.
