Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

Reasons to be Cheerful!

I completely forgot to post on Wednesday!  Myf had another bout of sickness on Tuesday which I didn't think was a tummy bug but then yesterday, I was really sick all day-despite having to be at work (I did end up having to close early and dealing with the fallout from that with my boss wasn't fun).

When I finally got home yesterday and picked Myf up, I was so ill, I could hardly stand.  Myf ran around bringing me a bucket, water, tissues, her duvet, wet flannel and at about 8 o'clock, she got herself ready for bed and got my bed ready for me as well!  I collapsed in bed right after tucking her in and thankfully managed a night with being sick but I do feel very shaky today (I was supposed to be working again today but thankfully managed to get cover as I shouldn't be working around food at all!)

I know I go on and on about my daughter but I don't think I could have gotten through last night without her!  She's definitely the number one reason to be cheerful :-)

Myf also had World Book Day at school this week and wanted to go as Mildred from the Worst Witch (yes, Mildred has long dark hair in plaits but she could have had a haircut too!)

Doesn't she look fab?

In other news, I STILL haven't finished the border on the Sleeping Forest blanket!  This is because every time I make a start, this happens...

I may have to come up with a new strategy...


  1. Your daughter looks great in her Mildred costume. She's a little angel to take care of her Mom - and I hope you feel better soon. :)

    1. Thank you darling-she's completely wonderful!

  2. So sorry to hear that you and Myf have been ill. Hoping you both get better soon. She makes and adorable witch.


    1. Thank you darling-I'm feeling a lot better today and Myf seems alright so fingers crossed we're over the worst of it!
      She does look cute doesn't she :-D


I'm so happy when someone leaves me a comment and I read every one :-) Thank you for taking the time to comment on my little blog-I try to answer every comment where I can!
