This week I have been feeling a lot like this...
I lost a good friend, who was too young and too beautiful to say goodbye to. It takes time for your heart to heal from such a big loss, and tears flow daily as memories come flooding back. Nathan Wills was 20 years of age, and passed away suddenly in a car accident. My partner and I had adopted him as our little brother, when he lived with us last year, while he was in Australia on a working holiday from Wales.
He was a big ray of sunshine in our life. Funny, loveable, and completely naive! We took him under our wing. My partner spent a lot of 'blokey' time with him, teaching him things a man needs to know. And I just loved him and looked out for him like any good big sister does! Loved him lots!
Amongst all this I have had a terrible flu, which lead to a cough that put my neck out! This week has literally been a pain in the neck, and I am glad to bid it adieu!
Tomorrow I head off to see my family and get a smile on my dial, courtesy of a little bit of this...
How could this face NOT make you smile :) Some hugs and kisses from my niece and nephew, and some quality time with the rest of my family, are the perfect prescription for a happier me!
I did do a little bit of sewing this week. I made a cute little cushion! A pin cushion that is! I REALLY needed one, and the ones in the shops were pretty daggy (although I do love those little china man pin cushions), so I decided to make one myself. I got the pattern for this one from Heather Bailey. It is super cute, and super bright.
What do you think?
Well it is time for me to pack a bag and iron the uniform. Oh the glamorous life of a flight attendant....*sigh*! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Just remember, life is precious, live every moment of it in a way that makes you happy.
