Saturday 27th August

Hi all. It has been a while since i updated this blog so i am here with a catch up really. The year is fast disappearing and i feel Christmas coming on. I will begin  making cards for that soon and have already collected a lot of gifts for Christmas. You can guess i still won't be done when Christmas is upon us. X factor begins now, that always makes me think of Christmas as it runs until then. 
This month has been very busy. We bought a brand new cooker as the old one kept smoking badly and the temp in the oven was rubbish. So the new one has been installed by hubby yesterday.

We also got new single beds as I have sleeping issues and poor hubby can not get any kip with my restless leg syndrome combined with my breathing and coughing difficulties due to the COPD. This is making a huge difference already. Hubby is a happy bunny bless him and even our little furball seems to like swapping over  beds lol. 

We stayed with my sister-in-law for a few days last week which made a nice change too. 
I am looking forward to doing some furniture alterations this winter as well as the usual crafting. I have some drawers and some small tables to have fun with. This will be a first for me. :) Also looking forward to creating some abstract canvas paintings. 

Have a great weekend and week ahead everyone. I leave you with some fun music to bring back memories ...

Happy Thursday

The weather seems to have dulled today but its still warm. Today I really do not feel like being too energetic. I feel a bit drained so i think its time to take it easy. I will hopefully get a little project done for fun though as i still feel crafty. 

Tomorrow i will be busy with appointments and also i have my free craft afternoon tomorrow. Each Friday i hold a craft session using my own stash for the elderly people in the area , its good fun and everyone is welcome. We all do the things we want to do personally and drink lots of tea and chat. 

 I have added a new category for 'patterns' over at my Dezinaworld blog. Showing one here below. All the images on my other blog are free so if you want any for any reason, go check it out  HERE   All single images are easy to get just right click on the image and save to your computer. Thanks for reading. Have a beautiful day today

New Cooker

Today is a shopping day. One of the items i need to shop for is a brand new electric cooker. We have  a very small apartment/flat and so i have to make sure that we buy a suitable standard sized cooker.
One of the things i have learned over time is that when you need to buy an item that will last for a good long time, you need to make no compromises lightly.

 You know what you want, you know what features you want, so go and buy it that way. If not, you may regret the purchase and it may end up being a costly mistake.You would never believe how long it took me to learn that and being short of money often made me compromise.  So with that in mind, i shall venture out to buy a new cooker. 

Have you always known that or has age and experience taught you this or other lessons like this one ?

A New Journey

June 14th 2016 I reached the age of 57. Late middle age (well that's how i see it  )I have had many trials and tribulations in my years as we all have and the journey has taught me many things over that time. But I wanted to begin a new journey, one beginning now. I want to blog about this journey, about my thoughts, my likes, dislikes, Interests, fun, happiness and sadness. I want to blog my journey beyond aged fifty seven and beyond. (hence the title )

 I hope that anyone happening upon this new blog of mine, will find it fun, interesting, varied and sometimes totally off the wall. You can expect to see a diversity of posts as that is 'me' I love to post random things, random thoughts, feelings, revelations, personal thoughts, maybe a quiz or some music or news or art, or poetry (yes i sometimes write ) or quotes that mean something to me, or just funny posts or video's that make me smile.I will be thrilled if anyone wants to join my journey in 57 beyond and all comments will mean the world to me.

Thanks for reading,
June x
