Swanage

I just wanted to quickly check in and say hi and let you guys know that I'm still alive and kicking. I want to say a huge thank you for all of the comments of support on my last couple of posts, they really do mean a lot to me.

Things are still difficult but I'm slowly getting more used to my new life on my own, can't say I like it much but hopefully that will come in time. So many things just don't feel the same to me anymore. I haven't picked up a needle or sat at my sewing machine in four months, I guess I've lost the urge to be creative for a while .....

In the meantime here are a few snaps from a weekend trip that I took to the coast a few weeks ago, I was blessed with wonderful weather and spent a couple of happy days walking and enjoying the sunshine.


A couple of shots of Old Harry Rocks

Agglestone - a huge 400 Tonne sandstone rock which legend says the devil threw from the Isle of Wight.

Is there anything better after a hard days walking than the sight of the sun sparkling off the sea while enjoying those well earned fish and chips? :)

Great to hear from you - I was beginning to worry! I know exactly what you are going through - it was 20 years for me!! If you ever want to chat - you know where I am. Lovely photos - it does you good to get away on your own - I am only just doing that now after 7 years!! - Things will get easier and you will pick up a needle soon!

Sorry for posting a reply so late but I've been under the weather for awhile and am now getting back on my feet. Things are fine and the issues appeared to only be temporary.

Glad to hear from you and that you are managing in your new life. It will take time to adjust and get centred, but it will happen. Thanks for sharing your photos.

I've been doing a bit of quilting but things did slow down over the last few months. Now that I'm feeling better hopefully things will get back on track.

Take care and hopefully the spring season will help to renew your spirit.
