Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Smash* & a tv appearance!

Well look at me back again, to be honest I run out of time this morning so had to post and go so I'm back to finish off my share for the day. I've not been too good lately, that's why I've not been popping by and leaving comments on as many blog's as I'd like, major brain fog, I would've only typed nonsense I can tell you! But I wanted to catch up with this before the weekend, am glad I had to come back because I can tell you something exciting - 

This morning Beader's Companion were on Create & Craft, the other day Sarah Milsop who fronts Beader's contacted me on FB to ask if she could show a picture of my wire coil embellishment I posted. Of course I said yes! So I watched back the recorded show and mine was the first picture Sarah showed. <much hand clapping & smiling> How fab, all of you saw it ages ago when I first posted it, but here it is again -

Am over the moon, a much needed boost I can tell you.

Now for the rest - while not so good I've found creating pages in my Smash* journal therapeutic so here's some of the latest - 

Shoes - I love them, unfortunately I'm not physically able to wear heels any more as I have to wear special supports to help stabilise my ankles but I still love to look and still have many pairs of my heels I bought. I only take a 2, a 3 at a push so finding grown up heels was always difficult but I do own 4 or 5 pairs of size 2's that are 4 inch heels! I keep them in a case under my bed and get them out often, just to look and remember!

These pages are on going and I will add pictures and information to them.  My boy, Keagan, has been riding since he was 7 (he's nearly 14), he has a 1-to-1 lesson every week. He wants to be a jockey. Earlier today he had a lesson with a lady who is a jockey and who trains ponies. He has had lessons with Sarah before and has ridden on a race saddle, but today he rode using the race saddle and jumped for the first time while on it. He's jumped many times using a normal saddle, but racing saddles and race riding are totally different. You've probably seen the jockey's on the TV, riding stood up....yeah that, going over the fences, well that's what Keagan did today, ride like a jockey, stood up, bent over and jumping over a fence that was straight across and a good 2 foot high! 

He loved every minute, so did I, seeing him doing what he loves and doing so well. You never know one day he may be one of those jockey's on the TV, that's his ambition, not to be on the TV but to ride in one of the major races like the Grand National or in the Cheltenham Festival.

Anyway I'm going to spend the evening with the football, will probably listen to it on the radio, don't know why but I prefer the commentary, I can watch the goals back later!

Take care. Zo xx

Zo congrats on your TV appearance. How is your fibro fog has it started lifting yet, it's terrible isn't it. I used to be very good at organising when at work but since the fibromyalgia I am a totally different person. Love your journal pages. You must be so proud of your son. if ever you fancy a chat as it helps if someone else know what you are going through give me a shout. Love Alison

Hi Zoe, fame at last, congratulations - but us regulars to your blog already know that you are a very talented lady.

I have been really enjoying seeing your SMASH book pages and have decided that it is time to jump in and have a go at making my own SMASH book. Fingers crossed it doesn't turn into a boring notebook. I ordered one from Crafty Boots last week, should be here Tuesday, I'm very excited.
