It's my blog anniversary

I can't believe it has been one year today since I set up Adventures in Pickle Land.

I've loved writing this little blog of mine and sharing with you a little of my life this last year.

I've learnt so much and I am still learning.

I've loved reading the comments I have received and have taken much confidence and inspiration from them.

So to my readers who ever you may be- thank you so much for being part of my scrapbooking and blog journey. I may not be the best blogger/scrapbooker/photographer in the world, but I'm really enjoying this great hobby and being part of a fantastic community.

I hope to continue with this blog of mine and I'm hoping to blog abit more regularly, as I think after a year I have had my period of crawling and is now time to take bigger and better steps.

There are a couple of people who I would like to express special thanks to.

To my most excellent friend Chris- you inspire me everyday with your fantastic cards, scrapbook layouts and artwork, and by being a fantastic friend who encourages me in my scrapbooking and letting me borrow her stamps and various other products.

And to my wonderful husband AJ, who inspires many a layout, encourages me and gives me so much confidence to carry on. And also for putting up with a dining room, living room and spare room crammed full of scrapbook goodies. I love you Mr Pickle xx

I dedicate this post to Peter (AJ's step Grandad) who sadly lost his bravely fought battle with cancer last night, and to his wife Edie who herself is in hospital after suffering a stroke and has lost her husband of nearly 64 years. Thinking of you both with love xx

Good evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.

Love Lesley xxxxx
