Hello remember me?

I can not believe how long it's been since I've been able to blog, it feels like a lifetime and although I am trying to catch up with what you've all been up to you've all been so busy!!
Anyway I (sorry G we) now have a lovely new laptop so normality can resume. I'm sure lots of people manage with a netbook or blackberry but not me, I need a proper keyboard for my chubby little fingers.
So what have I been up to whilst I've been laptopless?
Well talking of chubby little fingers mine aren't actually as bad as they were! I have now lost 35lbs and although my weight loss is now slowing down to 1lb+ a week I'm still going down. I still have a daunting 15lbs to loose to reach my original target but hopefully by christmas?
I've been away a couple of times in the last month, nowhere extravagent just down south to visit the children, grandchildren and parents.
This one thinks she's Audrey Hepburn!
This one knocked his front tooth out 5 mins later!!
And this one just always makes me smile, those dimples are infectious!!

We had a lovely time visiting everyone even if the weather was "random".
And had a great day out on a little steam train

Daisy and G hungout the window trying to scare me witless as we were travelling at 10 miles an hour!!

Unfortunately when we got home we received a call, our youngest daughter has been ill  for the last few weeks and it looks like it's quite serious. I'm trying to be really brave but even though she's 22 she's still my baby and every now and then I have a little wobble.  I think I'm going to be a frequent traveller over the next few months travelling up and down, so if I disappear suddenly bear with me I'll be back.

Okay brave face what else? Well you might notice that I have a new logo for my goodies. I never really thought about what I'd call myself or the goodies I'd made, I suppose because I never really thought I'd sell anything and as I already bought off etsy I just used the name I had there, maybe not the best idea. But having seen the lovely logos etc that Kandipandi now has I decided it was time to take the plunge!!
I've been mulling over the name Koochie Poochie for  awhile so contacted Angie over at Artwork by Angie and she did the rest!! I am absolutely thrilled with what she's done and can't wait for all my business cards, stickers, postcards etc to arrive.
Well that's me updated I think? I'm sure I've loads more to tell you all but my mind is temporarily blank so I'll save it for another day.
Be back soon ...

Oooh forgot to say, I've missed you all and am so glad to be back.

Firstly, I am sorry to hear about your daughter, hope you get good news soon!
Secondly missed you! I saw the pooch logo on Anges site and though 'that would be great for Pene' - how odd!
Third, you are looking pretty hot in the photos!

Children never stop being babies do they? I really hope things go well for your daughter. Mine was taken ill suddenly a while ago and I was so scared but fortunately it was not as serious as first thought. Be strong for her, but you're allowed to go to pieces in private. Big hugs for you both xxx
