So, 30th April 2016 was a day to remember. For so many reasons, not all of them brilliant...

...firstly, the brilliant. YARN SHOP DAY. Oh my gosh what an amazing day. I didn't think anything could top last years crazy day, but this was amazing. So many people, and oh the weather! We were sunning ourselves out in the car park (yes, we are that glamourous), and we even sunned ourselves WHILST IT SNOWED. Crazy weather.

Here were the first arrivals firmly camped out...clearly something was hilarious if the look on Jenny's face is anything to go by...

Weekend Shenanigans...

27/04/2016 10:48

Firstly I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing response I have had to the last blog post. I've had a LOT of private messages about it, full of support, which is amazing. I sometimes find the concept of blogging a bit odd. Pouring your heart out to strangers. But that's the thing really, isn't it? Blogging simply widens your friendship circle. So thank you x

 

However, despite all of that stuff, life continues. It was a crazy weekend here at Sconch HQ (what's new?). We had a right old proper knees up on Saturday at the Bocking Village Club with the Bocking Theatre Club for their St George's Day Cockney Night. It was a fun singalong night with much merriment  (probably something to do with the speciality gins on offer - new favourite, grapefruit slice in Tanqueray)

Here I am with my spiffing red braces and flat cap (courtesy of Chameleon Costumes - although now wondering why I don't have braces as part of my standard wardrobe).

Invisible Illness...

Yesterday I went to the CFS clinic. I've had joint problems since I was about 12. I was finally diagnosed with M.E. when I was 19. Bouts of exhaustion and pretty much constant pain has been my life. It's not *that* much of a big deal in the grand scheme of things for me. For some people, M.E. is so life limiting it is the stuff of nightmares. One of my friends has a teenage daughter who is so crippled with it, she is tube fed and barely wakes for an hour a day.

For me it has always been about the pain. Most people wouldn't know. I'm quite a loud person. I prance around. I dance whenever I can. I do too much. I don't *look* like someone who is in pain. But that's the thing about invisible conditions. You quite often can't tell. Which makes it hard for people to understand.

Yarn Shop Day Extravaganza

Yarn Shop Day... WHAT A DAY!

Oh my, it was so exciting, and overwhelming, and just so BUSY! We had advertised in the local papers, and on Facebook, so had hoped for a good turn out, but hadn't quite expected the turn out we got... Who knew 10% off and goody bags could be so exciting?!

Angela, Jo and I spent the week getting things ready, making goody bags and prettying up the shop...

 

Pretty shelves all stocked and ready...
