Unfortunately things have taken a turn for the worse with my Dad, he's not going to be with us for much longer so we are spending as much time as possible with him. I have been at home with my family since Wednesday evening and shall stay for as long as I am needed. Being the oldest of four children is very hard, having to be brave for them is the hardest. My youngest sister is only 16.

With regards to the studio it is closed for the time being and I am unsure as to what fairs we will be attending over the next few weeks. This has made me realise that as much as my business is my baby, my family are so much more important to me, life has totally been put into perspective and I now realise just how precious it really is.

All orders will be dealt with as soon as I get home, whenever that may be.

Hello Lisa. I am so sorry - it is very hard on all of you and to worry about the business too is asking so much of yourself. Deal with what you can and shelve the rest; people will understand. My thoughts and love are with you xx

Thinking of you, it is such a difficult time. I too am the oldest of 4 and my youngest sister was only 17 when Mum died, whilst you might feel you have to be the strong one don't forget you can all support and comfort each other. Sending my love.

Ah, I have only come to visit your beautiful site for the first time today, and am so sorry to read your most recent post.

Of course, when something serious enters our normal daily lives, it is when we do become the purest version of ourselves.

I wish you and your family well.

Promise to come back in a while to visit you again.
