Hellooooooo! *Waves Madly*

Gosh what a long time to be away!  I hadn't expected such an epic break but life kinda changed direction somewhat and I just rolled with it as you do :)

So whats new?  Well first I went back into social work about 18 months ago doing safeguarding in nursing homes for a local authority so life if pretty busy.
We also sadly lost our MIL last June very unexpectedly so Boo had to go out to Bali with his boet.  Made us think a lot about life so we decided to up sticks and move over the border near the sea so now live in sunny Colwyn Bay.
We've been here since last Oct and love it, every weekend feels like a holiday and we try not to waste days sat at home as we previously did.  There's also lots of autism type groups locally as Ethan has also been diagnosed with ASD so Im getting out to some of them.
We also have a little cuddy cabin boat, like a cross between a speed boat and fishing boat, we've been having fun in that too.

Unfortunately as I still work 60 miles away it means early nights and not much craft time!  However we've just had a new shop open in the bay, Knitting Bee & Craft which local crafters can rent a space and sell there wares along with buying some crafty bits.  What we do need is a local craft group like Padgate Crafters where we rock up once a month for the day and have that protected craft time which the owner Rebecca is looking into :)

So not been doing too much craft, most of it is still packed up but Boo did buy me a pyrography set for xmas Ive been having fun with, some pics below.

Hopefully I'll get some crafting done as Im missing it!  I go to the local messy church and had made some wooden crosses decorated with tim holtz dabbers and a spray of ink.  Some of the older girls were interested so I gave them a box of dewdrop ink pads to play with and they loved it so I really need to get back on the craft wagon!

Well Im off out soon so will leave you with this, not new but unpublished.  Stamp is called Just a little love by crafts and me coloured with promarkers which is
