Hello LOVEly readers!

Back with the first blog of 2019. I took a month (maybe two) off from Überbarn. I was just a bit fed up with it and feeling meh. Sure I still posted the odd picture but that was the height of the effort I was willing to put into it. Sales were slow (does ANYONE have money in January??), and I was having trouble getting things uploaded onto the website. I needed hubs help but as I work late afternoons/evenings when he gets home we don’t get to talk much during the week (sad but true) let...

How's life?

September has come and went in a hazy flash. I actually meant to write this last Monday but here we are on the 8th …now 10th October and I’m literally just sitting down to write it now! My thoughts about my fist month off work, nearly half way through my second! Time stop moving so fast… I’m struggling to keep up!
