Sometimes life can be cruel.

I have had a strange day today. On Sunday, we heard that a friend of ours who was diagnosed recently with MS had taken a turn for the worse and was seriously ill in hospital. He is only 30 and after hearing the news I just haven't been able to get him out of my mind. So I nipped up to the hospital this afternoon. He is really ill and I can't believe the change in him since January. I sat by his bedside today and spoke to him even though he was sleeping all the time and in the last 2 hours of me sitting here thinking about him, I feel really down and upset about him. My head aches with fighting back my tears so now I am having a little cry about him after speaking to his Dad on the phone.
I really hope that he can find some strength from somewhere to help in what might be a long recovery process. We have to stay hopeful and keep our fingers crossed.

I don't want to end my post with unhappy news so I will tell you about a lovely craft shop in a local town which a friend told me about 2 weeks ago. It seems like the shop has been open for two years and I had absolutely no idea!! So I paid a visit there and it is very nice with pleasant staff, lots of stock and tonnes of stamps.....so I will be visiting there again and telling everyone about it. They have also just opened a Coffee Shop within the Craft store so what could be better? Coffee, cake and crafting all at the same time.............JOY! 
Bye for now, Sheila x
