"tomorrow"...

i say to myself, "surely tomorrow, i will find a little time to get lost in dottie angel's world" but alas dear readers (are you still out there?) tomorrow comes and before i know it 'tomorrow' has turned into 'yesterday' and my little blog lies neglected in cyber land...

but not today...oh no, 'today' will be the day that Tif sits down at her little desk and blots out the calls of "mum"... yes, she will over come her 'guilt' at leaving her readers 'high & dry' and yes, she will start to 'tippity tap' on those dusty keys...


i have missed you, you make me 'whole' in a way i can not explain...i know i should be just 'blogging' away for myself and my sanity, but in the end i have to tell you, it's knowing that you are out there 'listening' to me that makes me carry on, so if you can forgive my 'unforgivable' silence and allow me to carry on like i have never been away then i know i can 'blog again'...

so let me start by telling you i have had one of the loveliest summers, short of finding more sunshine, i don't think it could have been better...i went home for some 'care' which my folks kindly gave to me...i returned with a lovely dose of 'old blighty' in my heart and felt ready to tackle the final stages of the shed's remodel while spending the last of the summer with my kids and then to refocus on some crafting...(blimey, that's a right old 'rambling' ramble, a little bit rusty on the old 'writing' skills, i'm afraid...)


over the next few weeks i shall 'back date' a few things as quite frankly most days i was desperate to tell a tale or two and of course my children were not up for listening to their mother's ramblings for very long...

she's shouting out "hello" and hoping not to hear just an echo back ~ Tif

dottie angel said...

...and a 'tear' gently drops into Tif's cup of tea, "thank goodness" she says to herself "there wasn't just an echo"...

Gigibird said...

Thank goodness for that I was thinking of coming over and strapping you to your computer and making you type out

I must blog at least once a week

I took the summer off myself. I am always amazed that you are able to create so much AND blog about it in addition to caring for your entire family. Welcome back! Can't wait to see what you have been up to.

Diane said...

whoopsiedaisiesgal said...

I'm so inspired by you and glad you're back to blogging. You are the first blog that I really started reading. I didn't know what blogging was all about until I came across you. I've missed reading your stories and seeing all of your creativity. Welcome back!

Urban Doll said...

There are apparently loads and loads of us out here who have been anxiously awaiting your return! I'm SO glad you're back, and now we must work on plans of one day being in the same fabric and/or yarn store at the same time!

And, of course I didn't check for a few days, and here you are! Welcome back my inspiring blog friend! I've missed you this summer, and I'm glad you had a good one. I'm off to read your newest post...

Love the gorgeous birdcage. I've been on the hunt for one, myself. It's been a bit elusive, but I don't get discouraged that easily!
