Some sad news & a little happy!

Hello folks! First for some sad news :-(
At the beginning of January I started my IVF treatment & yesterday we found out that the pregnancy test was negative. We are both very sad & gutted. We are however lucky & happy we still very much have each other & are looking to the future.

Now on to happy news! My friend Debbie very kindly sent me this blog award (a while ago I'm afraid-slap my wrists bad blogger!!)
Thank you Debbie

 I now have to say eight things about myself and pass the award onto four others

  1. When I was little I always wanted to go to ballet or tap lessons & promised myself that if the IVF didn't work (which it hasn't) I would look into doing adult ballet. Tonight I checked out adult ballet in York & found lessons on a Monday night which I am going to give a whirl!!
  2. I was scared of needles before doing the IVF & managed to do all but 2 of my injections myself...& believe me there were many to do!!!!
  3. When me & my younger sister & brother were small we decided it would be a good idea to colour our bedroom wall paper in & consequently had all our pens & pencils confiscated!!
  4. When I was 10 I watched part of a Freddie Kruger film & was so scared for months I dreaded going to bed. I use to lie & say I felt ill when I woke everyone up shouting after nightmares!!!! To this day I have NEVER watched any part of one of those films for fear the nightmares will come back!
  5. Although I don't like horror I do like most vampire films/programs. I'm not keen on the Twilight films though. I am a Damon fan from Vampire Diaries.
  6. I would love to have met Queen Elizabeth & Queen Victoria. I think they are both astounding women.
  7. So far this year I have read 4 books after not reading anything for over 2 years!!
  8. Finally I would really like a cleaner because my dogs moulting fur is getting on my nerves!!!
Now I would like to pass this award onto my fabulous Design Team

I'm sorry to hear about your treatment. Enjoy your ballet class! I've taken adult tap for ~6 years and I love it. I appreciate it a lot more than I did as a kid too.

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




About me...

I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.

These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!
