A Little Sheepish

After yesterday's outburst, I'm feeling a little sheepish this morning, but very very thankful for all your kind and thoughtful comments. (always!)
It's half term here, and I'm hoping a rest, or rather a change of routine will shed a different light on things, but when the children are back to school in a weeks time, I'm going to screw up all my courage and seek help, if I don't you each have permission to boot me hard in the direction of my gp surgery!

I've not been idle this week, I've several projects on the go,but I've finished another little vest for Ernest, using the same Pickles pattern as before, and some beautiful yarn I was gifted just after Ernest was born.

Oh yes, and check out my other blog there's a Flossie's Garden give away.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. Hope you have a nice rest next week. (((hugs)))

    I love the vest! It's a great colourway ;-)

  2. I've only just seen your last post, Jeanette. I don't have any words but I hope this week brings rest and recuperation and that your visit to the GP brings results. I've wondered the same on and off through these last months since having Toby.

    And, as always, little man looks gorgeous and the waistcoat is SO cute.

  3. I wouldn't worry about it. Sometimes we need a good outburst. Its quite cathartic and was obviously what you needed at the time. 'Hugs'

  4. I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to comment on your last post - I read it just as our weekend house guests were coming. I'm glad you got some good feedback and also that you've decided to speak to somebody. It can't hurt and could help, so I think you've made a good decision. Thinking of you. xx

  5. I'm hoping you mean that you feel sheepish, because after writing that post, you feel better and wonder whether you really need any help at all. Sometimes just calling the name of the black dog is enough to get it to heel. But sometimes it isn't, and at least recognising it is the first step towards getting the support you need. I agree, that line between grief and depression is such a fine one.

    I did worry when you said "I have so very little of Florence, that this pain sometimes feels like the only connection" - because I hope you don't feel like your grief has to be only linked in with pain - I'd hope that sometimes you can connect Florence with the good things in your life - with the huge love and daily caring for her sisters and brothers, with all the beautiful things you create with her in mind, with little reminders of her. I guess there is a sadness in these too, but hopefully over time it becomes a bittersweetness - so that she's there in your joy as well as your tears. Not sure that all makes sense, but sending love & hope half term is good for spirits xxh

  13. Thank-you for sharing the pattern, Jeanette - it's gorgeous. Hope the GP has some good options for you.

    Thinking of you, but feeling quite inadequate at putting thoughts into words :-/
