Hello -I've just joined and I'm wondering who is who on here?

Recommended Posts

Hello!   I'm Christine from Mold.  I've been married, for 26 years, to a bloke who is doing his best for me, but I'm really lonely  - for female company ~ no disrespect gentlemen!   

I'm currently unemployed and am struggling with physical and mental ill-health and complex bereavement issues. Our Warrior-with-Wings son should be 21 and away at a specialist residential college with people of his own age ~ but he died aged 18 three and a half years ago!  I've been told not to talk about him as 'no one wants to know' / 'no one cares' and 'it won't get me any friends'!   

I'm an avid paper-crafter (rubber stamping and mixed-media mainly)  but enjoy lots of other crafts too. I've joined Pam's 'Woolies For The World' Facebook group but have yet to make anything woolly!   I'm a basic knitter - can't crotchet, weaver, wet and needle felter.   I enjoy simple sewing crafts, especially with pre-made felt, and patchwork - crazy patchwork is fun!   I also dabble in Art (art history and appreciation - watercolour, pastels, acrylics and pointillism.   I've also dabbled in jewellery making and ceramics. 

I'm in the process of setting up a small craft business after being an Independent Demonstrator for a leading global company for 5 years - on and off.   Sooo - I'm looking for 'crafty' friends, colleagues, customers and class / workshop / crop / retreat attendees. 

Well that's a little bit about me - for now.......

Hi Christine and welcome to Buddies. Am sorry for your loss and have to say you need to talk. I lost a baby in 1983 and didn't talk about him for years but now I talk about him all the time and he is the reason for Woollies for the World. If ever you want to talk , I am here. Maybe in the new year we can arrange to meet up for coffee?

Yes, I do!   

My ❤️ son  ❤️ was way, way too special to just bury and forget!! 😞 Grrrr!  😞 !!  18 years of 'stuff' and memories to remember and TALK about - NOT forget!   

A meet-up with a coffee /cup of tea / Hot Chocolate would be great thanks Pam.  🙂 ❤️  🙂

You must treasure those memories Christine. You can never forget. By the way, I also suffer with physical and mental health issues. We live in Rhyl but travel to Mold sometimes to drop off donations for one of the charities we support . X

North Wales Superkids. We drop donations off at the old library in Mold. I don't drive but am sure my husband wouldn't mind bringing me over in the new year 🙂

Hi Christine and welcome to the group

I'm so sorry t hear of your son, I believe when you loose someone a good way of keeping their memory alive is to talk about them, share funny things they did or what you liked to do together etc is painful but it also brings comfort that the time you did have was special

Hi Cathy, thanks for your welcome and lovely words too ~ insert a love and a thanks emoji - it means a lot to me!  Wow!  Dyserth - the village on the side of a hill with the BEST view ever - lucky you!  I miss not driving on that road (Hoywell to Rhuddlan / Rhyl) now that the A55 is there!   ~ C ~ xx
