Happy New Year!

I know it has been an age since I posted last and I can only apologise. I haven't given up on you and I will be back again as often as I can but life here is completely topsy turvy. We managed to get my sister home for Christmas but her future plans are still in debate and I am working as hard as I can to produce a plan to give her a secure future that we are a part of. I can't say much more at the moment as things are still under court control and I don't want to put any plans in a compromising position - I know you will understand.

 I can however show you what a lovely Secret Santa parcel I received and say a huge thank you for the contents. Everything was me to a 'T' and I am so grateful for all the thought that went into it.

The yarn was my perfect colour and entitled withering bluebell it reflects just how I am feeling! The mittens will be keeping me warm on my early morning taxi service to the station - Lottie failed her driving test in December so I am still on active duty and I can't wait for her to take it again!
And finally and quick picture of my amazing Ted bear - he is still going strong and despite his various issues is a happy and loving doggie. Sadly his sister Della who lived with Dave's folks passed away on the 30th of December.

I promise to try and be a bit more active here in blog land but I have been really struggling with my energy levels recently - I guess that the prolonged lack of sleep has begun to take a permanent toll on me (16 months of getting up at 2am is quite a time) even the easiest of tasks is taking me longer to complete and some days it is all I can manage to keep going, my poor knitting has suffered dreadfully! At least the daylight hours will start to increase again and fingers crossed I will be perky again in no time.

Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year, with much love  - Sarah
