My little Angel....

We are lucky enough to have 2 lovely little girls and many of you will know we have not had an easy ride.
Adoption is a long and complex process and we have to deal with a lot of things that we are not really qualified for, but, for the last 4 years I think we have managed really well.
This Lady C , I love her little sweet face, I often stare at her to try to understand how she feels as she is so very troubled, I try hard to help her but there are so many things I don't understand, how could I after all? who can really appreciate what she has been through? apart from her and her sister..
I do get stressed and frustrated and sometimes embarrassed as she is a bit like a box of never know what you are going to she will behave , whats she will do or say next.

Christmas time is 'different' for us, children who have had very little find it hard to cope with it. So when I asked 'Lady C' what she would like for Christmas she only wanted 1 thing.......her tooth...we have waited and waited for months and months and months for it, she didn't want anything else.

Can you imagine the joy on her face when she woke up on Christmas morning with her missing tooth popping through, a little tear rolled down my cheek...her wish came true..
Bless her

Nice picture for my new diet.....

I LOVE to learn anything new, anything crafty , it keeps me sane, its tough being a Mum sometimes and of course with my 2 lovely girls being a little more hard work than most in some ways, its a challenge to my craft, sew, even just LOOK at my crafty stash and for an extra treat I take a class or got to an exhibition.

I recently went to the Knitting and Stitching show with my 'crafty Mate Chris' (that's her full name now....) We went at daybreak expecting a horrid journey from Wilmslow to Harrogate but it was great, we were an hour early so we stopped off for a treat.
I have ALWAYS wanted to got to Betty's Tea Shop and have always moaned at my mate Dyan (from Art from The Heart) as she lives in Harrogate and when I have stayed we have never made it there, but that has now changed because here I am in Betty's Tea Shop!!!....

Not my fav picture, a few too many chins but maybe it will help with my New Years Diet. What a lovely traditional quaint tea shop, sadly as it was breakfast I didn't fancy a cake or a cheesy croissant that early in the morning so it was just a nice cuppa for me!

I loved this exhibition, we did a couple of classes and were like excited little girls running around stroking fabric and gazing at buttons....but around the exhibition there were windows to the outside world showing the start of a little shower of snow which got heavier and heavier so we made a decision to leave early, we found a lovely couple of ladies to give our last class tickets to and set off home. the journey is 2 1/2 hours on a normal day but becuase of the thick snow and ice it took 6 1/2 tired and so stressed but as I had a nice crafty FIX I soon got over it..

I will post a pic of my Freebie Blog Candy ASAP
