Well, last week was Ready, Steady..........this weeks it's definitely been GO!
It's GO! to new lights in the kitchen! I'm sooooo excited by this one! We thought a new ceiling would be needed, but No! Yay!!!!
After 2 years of limited light in the kitchen, I can finally see what I'm cooking, this however won't help the outcome of what I'm actually cooking, unfortunately!
(We are like a mix of 1970s sitcoms here, just think Butterflies, I can't cook, and Some Mothers Do Have Them, Mr Beas not a practical man!)
It's GO! To sorting out my ideas, new kitchen tiles and taps are needed first!
It's GO! To sending off little parcels of loveliness......before I close my shop for a little while!
It's GO! To starting my new crochet project, a Hexie pillow for my bedroom! Alas, I used the wrong size hook so it will be a little smaller!
It's GO! To making the most of outside, whilst the sun is still out!
It's, not GO! For a little cat who curled up on the sofa most of yesterday, well it was raining!
It's GO! To my Little Adventure! I'm excited/ nervous in equal measure. It means leaving my family for 4 whole days, I've never done this before! (It's difficult for any child to be apart from their parent, but when you've got an extra special child, who likes things to stay the same, this is a Big, Big, deal!)
And so I'm off, to a place I've always wanted to go, where my Mum wanted to go, but she never made it. So I'm going for me, but for her too.
It's GO! To Florence, Italy.......I'm soooooo excited! (Do you ever stop feeling guilty as a parent, if you put yourself first?) I need a little time to be Me again. Not just a Mum, a Wife, a Daughter watching her Mum disappear, a Number on a hospital file. I'm going to be Me. Me and two friends, having a little bit of fun!
These last few years have been dominated with changes, dealing with grief, dealing with loss, dealing with difference, realising that what you thought you had planned for your future, wasn't going to happen.
'In the storm she stood, and when the wind didn't blow her away, she adjusted' I read these words today. It felt like Me.
It's GO! To Fun, Fun, Fun!
Bye for now,
Ada :) xxx
(I will try and pop to see you to say Hi before I leave!)
