Out with the old and in with the new,
I will be starting a new blog, as I am refinding my love of craft albeit slowly. This blog will stay as it has some good memories but also bad.
I want to leave the past where it is and rebuild a good future. So need a new home to share my makes and chatter.

Thank you for being there. Will post new blog details as soon as I am confident to share xxx

Life is full of ups and downs and at the moment lots of ups!!


Job is going well - full time now, no longer an apprentice.

Driving is going well - getting more confident as time goes by, just drove to Cardiff for our holiday travel airport. (Dale drove us home when we got back).

Yay we had a holiday!! - 7 days in Olu Deniz Turkey - bliss, 40c +  most days, Phew!!

BAD UP - Weight cannot get it under control. But trying to start again today for the umpteenth time. I have now 3 stone to lose to get me back to goal (LOL! who ate all the pies, biscuits, crisps, bread and pastries).


Exercise is not going well, need to get a plan and start again.

BAD DOWN coming home from holiday, we learnt that my husbands cousin has passed away - Quite young and no reason is known yet - Thoughts go to Aunt Jean and family. So sad.

Days off are few and far.

*SIGH - of relaxation and happiness.

I am enjoying a day off today, our ward was short staffed on Tuesday and I ended up doing a very long split shift day. 7am - 1pm and then 4pm - 11pm. 

I feel as if I was only asked to do this as I recently............... 

Oh my forgot to post the news on my blog, I posted on Facebook but not here. LOL!!! 


Fear, dread, excitement and freedom all rolled into one.
Something I always said I would Never Ever do, my feelings of fear and anxiety were that strong about it.

Just goes to show everything can be overcome - although I had a little help from Bachs Rescue Me Herbal Remedy - courtesy of my driving instructor.

Any hoo, getting back to everything else, work at the hospital continues to be something I am happy to be working within. Although, no set shift pattern is a bummer, finding out every 6 weeks your new rota and its a mixture of earlies, lates, long days, twilights and nights can be exhausting especially if you only get 1 day off every few shifts.

 I am still maintaining weight - looking at this positively, its not going up any further, I still struggle to manage, diet, exercise, work and life balance.
I have a really good couple of weeks then a couple of really bad lazy ass ones. 

However I have got myself a 12 week journal, started Tuesday and aim to be as good as I can and not put too much pressure on (my down fall), just aim for 10,000 steps and try to do some form of exercise for 30 mins 3x a week. I really want to get back to a running club too, but my belief in going back to my old club wains as soon as I look at the routes on their website, Hills, hills and more bloody hills.  Such a running wuss.

So today brings, food shopping, baking, gym (I hope) and a drive on some new to me routes to get me used to driving not just to and fro work xxxx
