Coffee time.

It's a cloudy Saturday, so what nicer than a days stitching. But to stitch sucessfully a girl needs refreshment. Today was just the day to bake some apple and sultana scones.

                   Mixed and ready to roll with my Great Grandmothers' rolling pin.

Baked and ready to eat whilst still warm from the oven. All I need now is a pretty china cup and saucer..........
                                                        and a pot of coffee on a tray.
Fabrics ready to cut and piece but I'm going to enjoy a quiet five minutes first.

Hope you all get your own quiet five minutes too.

Tough Love.

My posting has been sporadic lately as I have been struggling with myself over which way to go.

I have brought up my Grandson since he was a baby. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was seven years old and has always been a challenge.

We have had some wonderful experiences as he is a talented dancer and has appeared in many Ballet productions over the years and has even danced in Londons' West end.

As he has moved into adulthood he seems to have lost his way and has been very difficult to live with.

It's heartbreaking to watch someone you love very much as they make decisions that hold them back so I have had to give some .........
I am both sad and at the same time it's great not to feel stressed all the time. I can't believe I've done it, it's taken alot of heartache to get here.

I have been supported by my blogging which has sent me to visit you all. Your comments have given me strength without you even knowing so I thank you all.

It's a new start for my Grandson and a new start for me, I'm in the process of making some changes so watch this space.
