All these promises of keeping you updated and nada! Zilch! Zero!
My time gets swallowed up with work, family and gym time - I have very little free time for the creative monster inside of me. I have been making the odd project to occupy grey weekends and precious free time on an evening. My supplies are still very much looked after, I couldn't bare parting with all my craft stuff even if its way out of date, stash wise.
Here are two of my recent makes which, when looking closely, I still have the same format for cardmaking. But who cares, I set no trends and just follow my heart:

For the past 18 months I have been working hard at the gym and toning up this 46year old body. Its not easy, the older you get, I can tell you! I manage 8-10 classes a week including HIIT, Spin and Weights. Its got to be said that I will always be curvy but I feel stronger and fitter. I sleep beautifully, my skin is lovely and I have a resting heart rate of 49bpm. As for the happy endorphins? I cannot recommend it enough. Im always feeling giddy and motivated.
I also cut my hair short. So many reasons why but the best reason is that it takes nano seconds to wash and style, especially after morning gym sessions where I have to rush off to work afterwards.
In April this year I ran a half marathon. All was going well until mile 8 when BOOM! The most painful shin splints burned my lower legs complete with the most hideous cramp Ive ever experienced. Instead of pulling out, as advised, I walked to the end as I had my heart set on my medal and fulfilling the purpose of sponsorship donations for The Bolton Hospice. A charity linked very fondly with my employers.
As for photography? Gosh, it is months since I dragged my gear out. What, with the iPhone capable of taking such good pictures, I seriously barely see the point anymore. Saying that, this weekend, I dusted the old Canon off and have promised a few friends a session with their kids. So lets see how that goes!
This was taken near my folks home. With a pokey iPhone. Crazy, right?
Well thats me up to date now.
Who knows, I might update again this week. And then again, I may not!
How have you all been? Tell me xx
