just in case you were wondering

 
Yes I have been absent a bit lately but I do have a doctors certificate.
In fact I have spent the last few weeks in hospital
after suffering a major heart attack.
 
This 51 year old spent quality time in a coronary ward
with a few 90 year old men , sheesh.
 

 
Anyway I'm not here to whine but just to let you know where I've been.
Unfortunately at this stage I don't have the strength for much crafting
but we all know that won't take me long to get back to it.
 

 
My family are taking me for my first walk today.
 To think just a few weeks ago I was enjoying 5k walks
every morning and posting beautiful photos to instagram
 
Obviously this whole thing has shaken my family and
we are all getting by as best as we can.
 
I really don't know where this leaves my craft business but
in the mean time my bigcartel shop is closed.
I will probably reopen it in the next few weeks but my priority
at this stage is my health.
 
 
 

 
Thank you so very, very much to the people that already
knew about this and have contacted me with much love and kindness.
