Happy New Year

Well here we are on the last day of 2013 and all I can say is good riddance.  After the last few years I can only hope and pray to God that 2014 is the start of a new beginning in my life.  

Lots of money would be nice but the most important thing I want is good health from now on, because without that nothing else really matters does it.  

Wishing you all a 2014 full of peace, good health because without it we can't enjoy our lives can we,  prosperity because although money doesn't buy happiness it does make life bearable and finally creativity because as Picasso said 

"The purpose of art is to wash the dust of daily life off our souls."

Happy Christmas

Hope everyone has a Happy Christmas 

and best wishes for a happy, healthy and creative New Year


It is ages since I posted on here I've been concentrating on finishing my last Level 1 module Understanding Western Art for my Textiles degree.  It is being assessed in March then I can go on to Level 2 most probably after Easter if I can get the money to carry on.  

I've been very good at keeping to my gluten free diet but I've had some of the symptoms over the past few weeks and couldn't work out where I got the gluten from.  It turns out that glucose syrup isn't made from sugar as you would think but can be derived from wheat and a supposedly gluten free stock cube I used in soup had glucose syrup from wheat.  It is so annoying I seem to take 3 steps forward and 2 back.  I am cutting out anything that is processed and sticking to homemade when I can and hope that soon I will feel better because I am so fed up if feeling ill.
