Older........But Not Wiser

I meant to write about this last week, but with one thing and another I didn't get round to it. So here is a belated birthday blog post for me for last Wednesday. I received several lovely presents including this beautiful coffee pot which the DH gave me - the training has paid off!
The pot is Wedgewood, with a Susie Cooper design and it dates from the late 70s. Not especially old, but it's exactly my taste and has pride of place on the display cabinet for now - until a more prestigious home can be found for it!
We spent the Bank Holiday in Cornwall - we rented a small converted barn with another couple and spent the weekend visiting the area around Bude. We made it down to Port Isaac (home of 'Doc Martin'), Tintagel, Boscastle and Trebarwith for dinner on the Saturday. Sunday we got up late, popped into Bude for a couple of hours then made a lovely big chicken roast (Quorn for me!) in the evening.
Apart from a big relapse on Monday, I've been feeling a lot better recently - DH and I have made some big decisions and I've decided to try and look for some help with coping strategies for when things get bad.
I've also made a start on sorting out my craft room - it's very untidy due to a lack of storage and needs a bit of freshening up. The first stage of which was covering my cutting table with some pretty oilcloth fabric. I ended up with quite a bit left over, which I know will get reused for another project. The next stage will be to get some decent storage and maybe a fresh lick of paint. Pictures to follow!
