On a personal note

My first post with no beady pictures!  Have you stopped reading already?  LOL

I am very excited and a little bit scared as I have just booked a course of swimming lessons and scheduled my gym induction!  First steps on the long road to physical fitness I hope.  I will be blogging about my swimming experiences and hope you will be 'swimming' along with me.  My next major decision will be do I get goggles and a swimming cap or not?  Hmmmmm...................

Its so weird - I told my OH that I had booked the classes and hoped to get fit and lose a little weight and his response was 'but I like you the way you are'.  I took that to mean 'overweight and unattractive' and told him so.  I was hoping for some encouragement but maybe he feels a bit threatened at the thought of having a superfit, toned up, sexy as hell girlfriend - hang on I already am as sexy as hell - who is he kidding?!

New beginnings

Hello peeps!

Despite my noble intentions of doing a regular blog, I have fallen woefully behind.  My beading mojo up and left me for ages and I have been feeling like a fish out of water.  Like many, many people I suffer with depression and had stopped taking my meds - stupid woman that I am!  Been feeling low for such a long time but have now given myself a much needed kick up the backside and am on the way up again (and back on meds).  I dont usually share such personal info but decided that I shouldn't be embarrassed any longer.

I have started beading again although my mind is still not 'settled' and I rip up as much as I am beading - but I will get there in the end and settle down. 

I have also made some changes to my life which have made me feel stronger and more positive - long may that feeling continue. 

Only two pieces to share with you today and another UFO:

This was my entry into the February Etsy Beadweavers Challenge.  My mind is quite a strange place and this comes out in my beadwork!

Recently listed for sale in my Etsy store - just a quick project to get the beading flowing again.

My latest flight of fancy!

I will endeavour to keep posting and beading - wish me luck!!!
