You know that feeling when you've had huge highs & incredible lows, all in one week . . . this is that kind of roller coaster week. The highs - Sew It Together & IKEA Sleepover + a visit from my beloved husband . . . then the lows - my friend, a mother of four who is fighting breast cancer, lost her young teenage son & my darling Corrie from Retro Mummy, her beautiful mother passing away. I've been trudging through my routine of housewifery with little enthusiasm this week, i'm so sad for my heart broken friends.
My week has been busy, distracting me from the sadness. We've had the athletics carnival; i ran the BBQ lunch; i attended a little market; 3 days at Shop Handmade. All involved wonderful old friends & amazing new friends, who understood this underlying deep sadness i am feeling. I laughed with Ainslee on the treadmills while our children did Zumba . . . LAUGH = pant-wetting-listening to her Saturday night adventure on Stallions Afloat. Picture 100 women on 5 different hens' nights mixed with fully nude strippers on Sydney harbour for 5 hours & unlimited alcohol.
An especially amazing friend is Kylie from Mealy&i/ Mealy Bug Creations. She remembered that I support Heads Up, a cancer support Shop & group run by Navy wife Sue. Kylie is a darling long time crafty gal pal Army wife i met up with at Sew It Together & she handed over a selection of gorgeous handmade head wear for the Heads Up Shop. They sell 'head fashion' & teach the beautiful ladies who are going through chemotherapy, how to rock a new style of head wear.
