Hello lovelies

So I am finally writing from my own house, sitting on my sofa next to Andy (Maggie has her own sofa) with the dishwasher machine (eek! - yes we now have one) going on in the background and the lingering taste of pumpkin and jerusalem artichoke soup in my mouth. So things sound good, right?
In one sense, 'things' could not be better. This house is a joy and though I haven't been taking photos to share with you (slaps own wrist on your behalf) I shall remedy that soon. You see I haven't been well. As I always am honest here and share the ups and downs I shall just say the words Nervous Breakdown and leave it at that. It's really all too confusing and upsetting to try and even make sense off.

Andrew has been given time off to look after me and I must say I am very grateful to his place of work for their understanding. But you know what? This wonderful gift of the internet and all you darling people is really helping just as much. I thank you all for taking me away from my own life with your stories and gardens, your eloquent words and beautiful photography. If you ever doubt the reasons for keeping a blog - then remember me, sitting here, finding such comfort from your ramblings and sharing in your lives.

With love and thanks

  1. I am glad blogging is still working well for you. I did a chuckle when I read your EEEEK! over my shooting guns. Carrie, when you learn the correct way to handle a gun, and follow all the rules about safety, there is nothing to it. I love to compete, and to do better than some of those testosterone filled guys. I did really well in Arizona, I was top lady and finishing 8th over all. Not bad for a girl EH?

  2. Hi Carrie, I hope you're feeling better soon and I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures of your new house. You may even shame me into picking up the paint brush!

  3. Moving into a new house is a huge stress for anybody. Been there, done that, made the builder cry. As you settle, it will begin to feel like home (the glimpses you have given us look so inviting). A safe happy comfort filled place for you three.

  5. Welcome home Carrie, I have really missed you!

    Sorry for not replying to your pm on Facebook the other day, I've got the dreaded manflu and have been spending most of the last week on the sofa with wool and my crochet hook for company - along with endless hot water bottles and the odd hot whiskey!

    take care and I'll be in touch :)

  6. Welcome back Carrie and I hope you are feeling better soon. How lovely to have Andrew home with you, that's so nice of his company to do that. Take it easy and enjoy your man at home.

    The season change is getting to me too, I always feel down around this time of year, but keep reminding myself of all my blessings, not so easy for you I do realise that your illness is more serious and can't be shrugged off so lightly. thinking of you

  8. Carrie, I got your fun little package yesterday and it was such a bright spot in my day. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I needed that hug so very much! I know I'll go back to it again and again. As lovely as the gorgeous purple stone! Thinking of you and sending hugs and well wishes for a happy heart and a happy home!

  10. Carrie, moving is so draining--both physically, and emotionally! Get some rest and take it easy and then get back to feeling good again;-) I hope you'll share photos of your new place! Autumn has been quite pretty here, although it's never been my favorite season. It reminds me that winter is coming and the long months ahead must be endured. But it's a part of life that we all must deal with. I hope you'll be well soon! Keep thinking about spring--when everything is brand new and fresh.

  11. Hi Carrie. I received your stone in the mail and it is lovely, and I really liked the "hug". What a cute and fantastic idea! I do hope you're feeling better. Having renovated two houses, I absolutely get how stressful it can be. (If you check out the project house category on my blog you can read all about it. Unless of course that would make things worse ;) Take care of yourself.

  12. Dear Carrie,
    I need to write you a longer email but wanted you to know that your package for the stone swap arrived and you made me cry! You brought such a bright spot to my day, it was so incredibly meaningful what you sent and said. Thank you dear friend, sending lots of love and a big hug right back to you! xoxo Love, Nicole
