A lot changes in one’s lifetime, but a hell of a lot can change in just one year. My short silence on the blog, and creative pursuits have been limited due to many factors. I have been reluctant to share why. Today, I decide I will.
Right now, our little family’s worldly possessions, which of course include my sewing machine and fabric, are packed away in a storage container, and our little black cat resides in a boarding home, as we live in temporary accommodation, waiting for settlement on a new home we are moving into in the second week of January. Whilst this is challenging over the holidays, we are very excited about our new home.
Unfortunately, there has been bad news too. A year ago, close friends got together for a New Year’s party. We celebrated the start of 2012 with great weather, drinks, food, conversations about the year gone and the year ahead, with fun and games for our children. We shall be doing the same in a week from now, but this time, we will be missing a very special person. Early Christmas Eve morning, we lost a very dear friend, after her 6 month fight with breast cancer. Only diagnosed in July, aged just 32, it has all happened so quickly. She leaves behind four beautiful children under 6yrs, and a wonderful man. Trying to accept why this has happened is painfully impossible to understand.
None of us will ever know what will happen in a year, we don’t know what 2013 will bring, but support, love and friendship is essential to get through the difficult times.
Readers, I’d like to wish you all the very best for 2013, I’ll be back in full blogging force as soon as I can. Thank you for continuing to support and follow Recycled Fashion.
