I'm still here!!!!!!

So I have been out of blogland for most of this year and here is the reason why...............

my little bundle of joy was born on 22.09.2012, weighing a healthy 8lb 1oz and we named her Emily Elizabeth. 
I've been lying low on here as I started with pretty horrendous 'morning' sickness in January at 5 weeks pregnant and was subsequently diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum.  After 3 hospital admissions, one of which included a stay in HDU, and a bout of shingles, the sickness finally started to ease at around 28weeks pregnant.  Although it didn't go completely until after Emily was born, needless to say, I haven't felt up to blogging and have been doing very little crafting too. 
So I have so much to catch up on and hope to work my way through your blogs soon and also start some regular crafting and blogging myself....i'll be back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    thanks for signing up to my swap, it should be nice and gentle to ease you back into blogging and swapping xx

  2. Oh that is lovely news, she is absolutely adorable! Sorry to hear you suffered in the beginning - glad all is well now.
