In this weeks video I talk about being kind to yourself. I was being kind to myself by not designing something new but adapting something from a class I ran a few years ago. You can see my original blog post and video on the link below. It was 2015…….. blimey! Of course to make the old version you need a Gift Bag Punch board.

Its so important that we take care of ourselves, there is a reason that you are supposed to put your oxygen mask on before helping others in a plane emergency! It seems that analogy, along with you can’t pour from an empty teapot has been resonating with many of you. My email inbox is filled with messages and virtual hugs this week. You are awesome! Thank you.

So would you like to see the cute bag ? Using the AMAZING Waves of the Ocean paper, you NEED it!!!!!

So can you believe its Thursday already? Brian was convinced yesterday was Thursday, he’s been quite fed up today since he’s got to do Thursday again! Do you every have days like that?

It is an exciting day tomorrow though, the boards and tiles are arriving for the shower room and the door and shower tray are on order, so we will be busy tiling very soon. I say we, I shall probably be helping by making cups of tea…….. I’m a good tea maker!

I shall be busy crocheting at the weekend. I have a new yarn bowl which is lovely and stops my yarn getting tangled. It doesn’t seem to be speeding me up though I still crochet at a snails pace. We have gardening to do too, the tomato seeds are up, and I have flowers seeds and sorrel to plant. We need to decide what other plants we need, so maybe we will get tea and cake at the garden centre as well.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever you are up to, I’ll see you on Tuesday.
