For a long time I have been thinking about organising a crochet, knit and knatter group in the Daylesford area. I figured it would be good for me to find some like minded people and potentially make some friends.

I started a group on Facebook and will add the link in here when I am not blogging on my phone - slowly after some advertising on buy swap sell local sites I got a few members of the group and we had our first meeting on Tuesday. 

I looked around town and thought this place would make a nice place to meet. 

It is a little coffe nook off the bistro of the royal hotel in Daylesford - after chatting to management they were happy to have us come use the space. 

Our first meeting had just myself and another lady show up - but it was a horrid day absolutely raining cats and dogs !! Hopefully a few more will come this coming week. 

I had a new start - a simple blanket for a snuggle rug for Xanthe.  I managed 3 squares whilst I chatted so I had a lovely morning :) drinking coffee and crocheting.

I will return - not sure if that is a threat or promise?

I know you have all heard it all before but sorry for being such a bad blogger - life as they sometimes say has a habit of getting in our way when we are busy making other plans.

I am exhausted - I think I could sleep for a month and still be tired - I have no energy and my family/home life and health are beginning to suffer.   

In the lead up to Easter work was CRAZY!!  I ended up working 29 hours and I reckon that is contributing to how I am feeling - The toll on my body is beginning to become really noticeable - In Feb I put a hairline fracture in my arm at work and although it has healed I am now struggling to lift anything above 8kg?  Which has left me evaluating life and where I am at! 

Today I went and saw the GP and she wants to run a few scans and tests - after all there has to be a reason why I am so tired? So in the meantime I look longingly at my craft and curl up on the sofa and watch tv with one eye open shhh!!!

This week we went away for a couple if days " just to getaway" and give me a break from work - it was lovely so I will leave you with a couple of photos that I managed to remember to take from my phone - until next time Chars x

 Afternoon tea - passion fruit cheesecake 

The lively view from where we sat and enjoyed the coffee, cake and sunshine.
