It's hard to know how much of real life should spill into a blog such as this.
The main topic of this blog is building crafts and arts and lovely such stuff into my busy every day life as a working mum. I want the feel to be happy and cosy, the tone to be that of a conversation with an old friend about I've been up to lately. I want it to be the kind of blog that leaves people, including me, feeling nice inside. Which is why it's difficult to let reality, the hard side of life, seep in. But seep in it does.
I had a miscarriage yesterday. I was six weeks pregnant, it was early days, it was all very straight forward, not much pain involved other than heartache. This news has nothing to do with crochet, or crafts, or baking, or making dolls or mosaics or happy things so it really should have no place here.
Normal crafting cosy happiness will resume in the next post, life does after all go on. But if I were catching up with an old friend then that is what I would tell them. Off topic or not. We lost our baby yesterday, and that hurts.
