About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

I've just updated my family history page with some more information on looking at weddings through your families history.

I dreamed a dream

Well, haven't beenable to get on and update my blog much- got all the ideas but getting to do them is tough right now.

It's been a rocky road and one that won't be getting any easier. Aside from the stresses of moving and all that we were hit by a massive blow that my mom has terminal cancer, it's definatly a difficult time and you just try to adjust and keep going, which isn't always easy. I hope to keep in touch with people and keep doing things I like when I get time and when I have energy. I am hoping to get back into my crafts as I plan to make bits and pieces for Christmas gifts. I also hope to get some new posts on here- I might even later today put a more cheerful one up! I also debated about doing one on cancer, more so as a help/advice to others going through similar things. I have actually just completed an aromatherapy course on cancer care so that's been useful.

Anyway, I always find music lifts me so here's some songs:

Through the rain

March On

Keep holding on

Disney - always light hearted!
