First things first, I had a lovely weekend, very productive. I've done some sewing! And some cross stitch. I'll have pictures of all of that tomorrow, I want to wait for daylight before taking any photos.
I also supervised some baking. Joe was keen to make cookies so we got my book out and he choose Anzac's, because, as he says, 'Hunney will like them, he talks about them, he said to me all about Gallipoli'
He was very proud to present them to Hunney, after he had carried out the quality control test of course.
He then went on to pick a tickling wrestling match with his sister

I think she won. There were wails of MUUUuuuuum and lots of giggling going on.

If you don't want to read personal stuff, look away now.
I had my appointment with Maria today, it was all positive, no upset this week. I told her all about you, about my posts and about your wonderful supportive and loving response. She agrees that I may have turned a corner and was delighted that I seemed to have a lighter heart this week. She asked how much of a difference it had made to my week, well, you only have to look back to see how little I was doing recently and here I am today boasting of sewing and quilting and making cookies. I think you ladies have made a big difference in my life. Maria also said that she feels I did manage to say it out loud, if so many people responded to my statement then it must have been loud and clear. My dad is a bully.
1) A wonderful weekend.
2) No snowy showers today.
3) A finish! (I'll show you tomorrow)

Good to hear you have been so productive....big sisters always win until little brothers grow up (as in age) I don't think boys ever really "grow up"....LOL

Keep going, Girl! I know how hard it is, I've been battling with depression for 6 years now, just when I think I've got it licked a spanner is thrown in the works!!!
