June Colour Combo Blog Hop

welcome to the June Colour Combo blog hop

If you have arrived from Stephanie, you are in the right place!!!. If you are here and didn't come from the previous blog, I am listing the hops below my post so you can start back at the beginning if you wish.

I hope you like the layout I've done of myself and my friend Joanne who I have known all my life and we grew up as neighbours, went to school together and continued our friendship all these years (nearly 37). She was my maid of honour on my wedding and I was her chief bridesmaid at hers too. She is married to Chris and AJ and I have the previledge of being honorary Aunty and Uncle to Oliver and Grace.

This blog hop I am also offering a Giveaway to those who comment on my blog. Please leave a comment and I will pick One winner next Friday. The Giveaway is a kit of your choice from here. The Make and Create Shop is a fantastic place for home made embellishments by Anna, and I have purchased a few over the last few months.

Please continue with the blog hop by visiting Jo

Jo is one of my favourite blogs to visit and she has a cat called Willow too

Good afternoon from here in England and Pickle Land

I hope to speak to you very soon

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
