Family and My New Life

Wow is it really 2 yrs since I last blogged opps apologies.

Last year I started to Crochet (after trying for about 20 yrs and failing lol) and made a blanket for Mark, who loves it, it is now on his bed and keeps him warm in this cold english weather.  I have since started a blanket for Guy and it is just over half way,  I will post pictures soon, need to get my camera out.  I will add some of my 2013 finishes to a page and start posting this years finishes as well.  I finished Ana a Bewitching Pixie by Nora Corbett and hoping to stitch and finish the other 4,  I finished Gigi last year.  Both took me roughly a week in total to stitch, they are so quick,  I did make a bo bo tho, Gigi is on 28ct and Ana is on 32 count sigh!!!!!

I have also started knitting again in the last year, I have knitted a couple of jumpers for a friend's son, and now he wants a hat, scarf and glove set lol.  It keeps me busy.

After separating from Ex, we were finally divorced in June 2014, after a 2 yr separation.  It all went well, and we have remained friends ever since.

The boys are growing up so quickly  I cannot believe that they will be 15 this year arghhhhhhhhh lol. Mark wants to become a Mechanical Engineer, which means he has to go to University after he leaves school at 18, as he wants to stay on for 6h form, as does Guy.  Guy wants to follow his dad into IT, and is also thinking about going to University as well.  There talking about going locally so that they can still live at home lol gawd help me ha ha.

I moved to Weston Super Mare back in June 2012, and have been enjoying the flat very much.  But it is now time to move away from here and move nearer the boys schools, so that they can get the buses, and I can finally start working again.  Companies prefer you move before getting a job, as they don't really like you taking time off just to move, so as of today, I am saving up as much as I can, so that we can move nearer to their schools, so I am on a no stash buying resolution, until I have saved up and moved.

We have loved living here, but live has it's downfalls.  The kids friends don't live anywhere near us, and they are all asking for us to move lol.  I was in a relationship for 2 yrs, but he ended it as he has commitment issues, he also lied to me I found out just before Christmas.  So I am better of out of it and I am enjoying being me again.

I left Facebook, Google+, and twitter, they seemed to be taking over my life, and I was also getting fed up of people reporting back to my parents.  Well I decided to cut all that off and get my life back and be me again.  So back to blogging and my Yuku groups.  I'm not sure how often I will blog, but I am hoping to be here most days and posting piccies for all to see.

My profile pic is of me and my boys outside Dunster Castle, last Summer  It was a great day out.  I have also been losing weight.  I was 14st albs and I am now (after gaining quite a bit overt Christmas) 13st 2lbs (I will update my weight loss Journey Blog later.  I want to get down to between 10/11 st  I also dropped a dress size, I was an 18 bordering a 20, but after a year I got down to a 16, I am close to getting into a 14, will take a couple more months but hoping to be in a 12 by the end of this year all being well.

Ahhhhhh soooooo good to be back, and finally getting back to some normality xx

Good to see you back again. You've been really busy with a lot of things happening in your life. I hope the future brings you a lot of happiness and things going as you'd like them to go. Did you make one of the big crochet blankets from Ravelry?
