Hope to be back soon

Just a quick post to explain why I haven't been posting on my blog for a long long time.

As you will have seen from the previous post, Christmas was quite a hectic time and coincided with Mum coming out of respite and going back home on Christmas Eve, Unfortunately, she didn't do too well and needed a lot of help and support every day. On 29th January, the doctor admitted her to hospital as her foot had gone cold. They did several scans and we were told that apart from the blockage behind her knee which they did manage to solve, she had several cancers in several organs. As you can imagine, me and my sister were completely devastated, although Mum seemed to take it very calmly. It was made obvious that our Mum would not be going home and over a few weeks we managed to get her into a lovely nursing home. She was moved there but lost her fight for life very quickly and sadly she passed away on the 6th March.
Apart from trying to coming to terms with losing my lovely Mum, there seems to have been so much to sort out and I haven't been in the mood for blogging or indeed crafting. So I apologise to all my friends for not visiting their lovely blogs but hope to be back very soon.

Sue xx

So sorry to hear of your loss Sue. It must have been a very hard few months for you. Only manage to catch up on here occasionally at the moment as things are a bit difficult here - but not at all in the same way as for you.
