After a recent bout of illness, I am gratified to know how much my friends care for me. I am better now and to prove it I have finally had a haircut after a few months of not particularly caring about it. Mind you I am probably just getting myself tidied up for a few days away with a friend next weekend. We are having a girls weekend away which should be good. I have even bought a new dress for it. Unfortunately my busy social life has seen me miss two of my craft pursuits that I normally go to monthly. I will just have to make up for it by doing some of this at home. Those who know me will know that I am quite passionate about scrapbooking and card making, so missing either of these activities is not something I do lightly. I spend time in Palmerston North with my sister who also enjoys these activities. I have met many lovely people since starting this hobby and enjoy six monthly excursions away as well as many other occasions. Next month I am taking part in an event called Pinkalicious to raise money for the Arohanui Hospice. I have been to this since it first started and enjoy meeting others, seeing their work as well as the opportunity to take part in competitions, make and takes and of course shopping. There are a lot of inspired people out there. And there is nothing so nice as being the recipient of a homemade or handmade gift or card. Bye for now.
