Still Here!

Many apologies for my prolonged absence - two weeks for our Easter break, followed by a further week of celebrations with extended family visiting from the mainland - pheeeeew, must be the longest Easter break ever!! It took me a further week to figure out what on earth I'd been doing beforehand - I'm still working on that one, haha! Anyway in the meantime I've been having some further thoughts of my online shopping presence - but more of that later when I'm sorted.

We're all chocolated out today, like the rest of the country after Easter Sunday yesterday. I packed 'Little S' off to school with a satchel full of Easter egg 'left-overs', I hope he managed to get rid of them!!

It's all blustery wind and sunshine here in the Outer Hebrides today - the poor daffies in the garden have been getting a good bashing but they seem to be holding their own. I'd forgotten that at some point I must have planted a mixed variety of them, they seem to have sprouted up all over the place in various combinations of lemon and yellow, in different shapes and sizes - very pretty!

Sorry about the lack of 'crafty' news but as mentioned I'm working on that one and looking forward to get down to some 'tweedieness' at some point in the week. I did get a fab gift of some Harris Tweed from a lovely work colleague last week - she won it at a Bingo night - it could only happen in Stornoway! :) I'll have to think about a nice 'tweedie' gift as a thankyou to her - I have a couple of ideas in mind though.

Catch up later in the week - hope everyone had a lovely Easter, please tell me it's over now though!!!! :)

Hello Alison,

I was just thinking about you this morning!!!

I have missed you terribly. Are you getting a little burned out with the online store upkeep? I am feeling very swallowed up on Etsy lately.

I look forward to reading your post very soon.
