WOW How long has it been?!! One Year!

Not sure if anyone will read this but hello out there!

I've wanted to post many times but had difficulty getting into my blog until now.  Not sure why, perhaps it has to do with all the changes to blogger since I last logged on.

Now an update.  My little boy is two! Time has flown by as a full time working mama with a busy toddler.  No stitching has been done but I've been feeling an itch to stitch! My replacement hobby has been making essential oil products for me and my family.  I've got quite the collection growing and love studying about each essential oil and their benefits. 

Really not a lot to say here other than a big hello from me and it's been lovely to see so many of my blogger friends on Instagram.  It's the easiest platform for me to use on the go.  I do miss blogging though just a wee bit.  I still would like to update every so often and not take over a year to pop  in.  Hopefully I can upload a few photos for you to all see!

Cheers and big hugs from me...


Me, my boy and my tired eyes

Climbing trees the little monkey

Playing with sticks as always

Hope you enjoyed the light sprinkling of photos! There's been so much going on it's hard to make edits!

What a handsome boy! It is hard to believe two years have passed. I've seen a few photos on Facebook and everyone looks well and happy!

Hi Anne! It was good to see your post. I can't believe your little one is two. What a handsome boy he is! Enjoyed seeing your photos; thinking of you!

Glad to "see" you! Your little guy looks like a very happy kid - the picture of the two of you is wonderful, and I love the one of him in the tree (must say it reminds me of when my guy was that age). Take care.

You're still in the "Favourites" folder of my reader!
Love the photo of the boy with the stick! He also looks very English in the one above with the knitted jumper in the tree LOL
It would be lovely to see the odd post from you, especially if you start stitching again. I miss you!

Hello again Anne, how lovely to see a post from you. Your little one looks just so hugable. How interesting dabbling in essential oils. Hope your stitching itch takes hold and we see more of you. You have been missed.

Cindy's Stitching said...

I can't believe he is two. Just gorgeous. Beautiful pictures. I to use essential oils all the time and reap their benefits. Someday you will get your stitching bug back. I do not do instagram or facebook but i do videos on Youtube about cross stitch under Cindy's cross stitch. Good to see your post.

I was just wondering about you over the weekend Anne and here you are ! fantastic hearing from you. Your little guy is soooo adorable! How is your DH doing, well I hope. Essential oils help so many people - maybe they are helping your DH too. Hope so! I can only imagine how hard it would be to find time for stitching along with working and taking care of a young family. Best to you always - Mel

It's lovely to see you again! Your little boy is soooo handsome, can't believe he's two already....time certainly flies. Hope you manage to find some time to stitch (and pop back on blogger!)

Hello Anne, lovely to have a post from you pop up in my reader. Your little chap has grown into a fine boy. I hope you are having lots of fun times as well as work!

Oh, my goodness, he is two! Such a sweet boy, you enjoy your time with him. We will always be here waiting for you whenever you do get the chance to blog. hugs, Kaye

I can't believe your little boy is 2! He's so grown up looking -- of course I see him on instagram and stuff, but every time I'm just amazed at his total little-boy-ness. He's adorable! Good to see you blogging. :D

Barb said...

Great hearing from you Anne. Your little guy is growing up so fast!! He is a real doll. We just got back from our grand daughter's 4th. Where does time go?? I once took a class on the use of essential oils so I think that is a good way to be spending your time.

Sarah in Stitches said...

Anne!! Hi! I tried to reply to your comment the other day, but you're a "no-reply" right now, I don't know why. It's so good to hear from you! The pictures are so lovely. Nathaneal is just gorgeous, and you're looking great! :D

Brigitte said...

So nice to see a post from you, Anne. And with so many pictures. I loved to see your little boy, oh my, how big he already is. And I also loved to see you on one of the pictures :)))

Carol said...

I always love seeing the photos of your sweet boy on IG, Anne :) HE really is adorable and I can truly feel the joy that he has brought to your life! Enjoy each day--they truly do grow up too quickly! (Did you know my oldest is getting married in October!?)

So happy to check again and there you are! Time does fly and your precious babe has grown into such an adorable two year old. Keep all of us die hard bloggers happy - check in once in the while. We miss you!
