Back to normality.

The past two weeks have been a blur of busy-ness, then travel and then huge sadness.
As I was driving to Wellington, two weekends ago, my Grandpa died.
Turns out no amount of lovely crafters or crafts can really improve ones mood entirely when all one wants to do is be at home with her family. (Not to say that it wasn't lovely to see you all, it really was.)
Last week was a muddle of trying to get back into routine after a month of frantic sewing and a weekend away and, of course, coming to terms with Grandpas passing and attending his funeral. All of which was made much harder by my parents being overseas and deciding not to return for the funeral ( which, considering their circumstances, makes perfect sense. Just sucks for me!).

But today has been filled with baking, washing, baby snuggles and the sweet smell of curry in the crockpot.
The sun shone beautifully and seemed to brighten up the whole house.
Ahh, life is getting back to normal, and with normal comes blogging again. 
It is so nice to be back.
