Lupus

Leave a comment

In the summer of 2010 I was diagnosed with Lupus. It’s hard to get to the stage where you accept the impact this chronic illness has on your life and parcel it up out of the way. I am part way there! What I have found out is that not many people know about Lupus and so I am on a mission to raise awareness. There are several charities working for Lupus and I have become involved with Lupus UK  I have also joined the East Midlands regional group and maintain the facebook page which has become a labour of love. In December I did a fund raiser , selling my craft work and raised £120.

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
