I really hope I can get some of the posts I have planned, including my first ever dress up over the long weekend we have here in the UK for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Unfortunately my sister has been diagnosed with a mental illness and was prescribed Diazepam (also known as Valium) on Thursday night and is been looked after by the mental health crisis team and will soon be starting with a therapist. She’s at home and is physically well, just incredibly vulnerable and fragile mentally. It’s a long and winding story as to how she got to this point and its not something that I can share as its very personal to her.
It’s taking a lot of my strength to be strong for her and support her fiancé whilst my parents come to terms with this. To be honest I’m still coming to terms with it. I’m fine, and she will be fine. She’s recognised that there’s a problem and she’s taken the first steps to getting back to where she wants to be.
Once again, sewing and the creative outlet is giving me some time to ‘just be’ and for my brain to stop actively processing and let my subconscious deal with it all.
Thank you for letting me vocalise this and get it out there, as that helps me enormously! As I mentioned, I have three finished items that go into one outfit I want to share with you, plans and plottings for future projects and hopefully I’ll have another finished item this time next week. I better as I’ll need it for Sunday 10 June!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to read your blogs and see what you’re all doing. Hopefully I’ll have some sewing related posts very soon! Vx
