Well hello!

You can be fairly sure that when my blog is quiet that there is stuff going down at home. Well, a lot of stuff has been going down lately, most of which is mundane and not very interesting. However, the thing that has been consuming my life recently has been the health of my youngest daughter. We have entered the murky realms of an eating disorder with her. We have kept her from serious harm through sheer blood, sweat and tears. But we are now seeking professional help, and to say it is challenging for all concerned is an understatement! I won't go into details for her sake, but suffice it to say that life is pretty tough right now. We will all be OK. We are exhausted, but determined! It would be sensible to walk away from my blog for a bit, but I feel like it is my one small luxury right now. I do have some sewing and gardening news, and I will share it as I can.


Here is a photo taken in my garden a couple of days ago, 
just to keep you going ... and me! Best wishes, Bloom x

  2. Hi Bloom. Be kind to yourself too. Small but precious time-out is important. Take time to breathe, smell the roses, whatever you have the energy for. Take care

  4. Sending big hugs -- I know how you feel about the blog. I'm having challenges at the other end of the spectrum and, like you, feel it might be best to step away, but I think I need it for me. Best Wishes ....

  9. Oh Dear Ros, I feel for you. Girls are very delicate and complicated and after getting on top of her medical problems before, I cross my fingers you can step over this hurdle too xxx

  11. Hang in there, and retain your blog - reaching out to others is a way of keeping your communication open, and hopefully it is comforting to know that others care.
