Good News!!!!

Hello everyone!
Well it has been a lone time since I have blogged and I have missed it.
Things have been a bit up & down here and I have just not felt like blogging.
Christmas Eve Kevin was made redundant from work and it was a bit of a blow
but we did not let it spoil Christmas, well you can't can you.
He is still out of work and things will be tough for a while but I am sure we will get through it,
we have before.

Now on to a brighter note, I am not sure I have done the right thing but when opportunity knocks you grab it with both hands!
I am opening a craft shop!!!
It is only two units in our local indoor market but it is a start.
We have spent the last month getting it ready.

Grand Opening
