Hi Everyone – How many followers!? – THANK YOU ALL
Firstly let me say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who is following us here at PeaceCrafting. We are currently at a staggering community of 1,144 followers! WOW! That is huge and I am so grateful to everyone for the love.
Unfortunately my health has taken a turn for the worse and it has been recommended that I get 10 hours sleep a night!…10 hours! Ha! I can barely get 6 or 7. I laugh but really it’s beyond a joke now.
Something has got to give and I need to rest and reset, it’s not going to be easy but I cannot stay in this loop any longer it’s literally killing me so I must make the changes.
To be the change I need I am probably not going to have much time to write so apologies to all of you following and supporting us, I really love posting and will try to do as much as I can but I may not be able to or participate in the challenges I love so much 🙂 I will be thinking of You all. I may just sleep, eat and look after the boys for a few days until I can heal a significant amount.
Armed with a crate load of Riverford veggies, my magical blender and homemade fizzies in the form of Sauerkraut and Tibicos I am on a mission to sort this Mama out.
Thanks again for everything.
Please email me direct at: PeaceCrafting@outlook.com for any messages.
Many Thanks and Blessings to all.
