I'll be back soon.

Hey dear friends.

I'm not apologising for not being around again as I've just reviewed my last few posts and it seems that that's all I've been doing.

You all know life has had it's ups and downs and challenges for me in recent times and I'm so grateful you've stuck with me so far.

I haven't created in the longest time and, whilst I think I will real soon, I'm taking a time out for myself now.

You'll remember from my last post that I mentioned that my Mama was ill and had herself a wee heart attack. Well, she was home for 10days before she had another on 29th April and was readmitted to hospital. She didnt really recover well from this second event and though rehab was attempted it was pretty evident that her body didn't have the strength needed to recover this time.

My heart breaks as I write these words, but my darling Mama left this life in the early hours of Sunday, 26th June 2011. I was sleeping by her side and will be forever grateful that I was able to be there as she entered into eternal life.

We buried Mum alongside her parents in Kingaroy in country Qld last week and I had my first day back at work today. I'm so thankful for the memories I have from being Mum's carer for the past 2-3 years, but this now also leaves me with a huge empty place in my life. Crafting is my sanctuary and I know I'll find my way back into my studio soon, but for now I'm going to focus on just putting one foot in front of the other and getting through each day.

It's also wee Charlie-boy's 1st birthday on Thursday and I'll try to grab some updated photos of the little dudes for you. Can you believe that little munchkin is 1 already.

So, for now, dear friends, I hope you are all well and happy. I'll see you soon.
Much love,
Michey xx
