Burble along with me in my dream world

To live is to craft and to craft is to live-plus more homely bar room philosophy from a former barmaid and library assistant

Just popping by

Thought I'd stick my head around the corner to let you know I'm still ticking along. Could do with winding up a bit at the moment.
Had a bad night last night as DH was restless. His Parkinsons disease causes him to have terrible dreams -talking, laughing, fighting, running (in bed-not out of it) and cycling all seem to feature. Unfortunately none of this mixes with FMS-one poor night and I lose a day-or two or three. Forward one step then back three! We are waiting for a wheelchair for DH so that he can get out a bit without being completely drained. I'm determined to try it although I might not have much strength for the job. You never know until you try do you?
Crafting has taken a back seat for quite a while and the year has flown by with various hospital appointments and meetings with physiotherapists-occupational therapists etc etc. Managing without a car means a lot of time and spare energy is taken up with shopping but at least it gives us spare money-no bad thing.
Still enjoying Pinterest. Lots of love to anyone who pops by. Hope you're all still enjoying crafting. Hugs Betty


  1. Hi Betty, Lovely to 'see' you, so glad you're ticking along:0) Managing both your and your husband's different needs must be a bit of a challenge! You're missed and as soon as you have the time and the inclination to create I'll be here. Good luck and hugs Gay x

  2. Happy to we your head pop round the corner Betty! Glad to hear that you're bearing up...there's a lot to cope with. we've had a year too, my poor M and D have really fallen into their age this year. It ain't for sissies, is it, this grown up lark.
    Sending best wishes.

  3. Sounds like you are having a rough time of it Betty but I'm sure your fabulous sence of humour helps you get through.
    I must say I miss reading your entertaining posts but glad you've been able to pop around to let us know the reasons behind your absence.
    Hope you manage to cope with the wheelchair but do take care not to overdo it.
    Until the next time I'm sending you my very best wishes. xxx

  4. Just poped by to wish you a happy 2013. I hope things are going well and that your hubby got his chair ...Take care. xx
