What lovely people you are my bloggyfriends!!!
I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind comments you've been leaving on my last post - I wasn't blogging this time last year so you didn't get your annual dose of Sarah Winter Blues and this will be the last time you see it as well!
Unfortunately I do get a bit down during the winter, I'm naturally a glass half-empty sort of person and the long dark evenings get to me. Always been easy to start crying and feeling a little sorry for myself.
I won't go into my life history - you would be truly bored! - but I've had a few setbacks in life (particularly an abusive marriage - not this one I hasten to add!! my previous hubby!) which have affected my confidence and I am still a very shy, unsure sort of person and that does fight it's way to the top when I'm feeling particularly fed up! And especially when I start comparing myself to other people; whether it's cards - looks - lifestyle, I'm sure you know what I mean.
I did set out thinking that this blog wouldn't be just about cards - it's a sort of online diary. I'd been looking at people's blogs long before I did my own and always found the ones that shared a bit of themselves much more interesting than just - here is my card and this is how I made it. I'd decided that if I did my own blog (and for a long time I wasn't going to!) that it would be warts and all - so yesterday you had the warts! Later normal service will be resumed, I promise.
Well done if you got to the end of this saga and thank you for listening.
