Im So Excited!!!!!

 I'm also so very tired now but I don't care. I managed to go to a hospital appointment for Tom today in Dundee. (So what I hear you say!!!) Well I have not been out of Arbroath for over 3 years due to this blinking agoraphobia and was 2 years ago at this time totally housebound cause of it so a MASSIVE achievement has been done today. I am so very pleased that I managed. I have a fabby Family an Friends and my Nurse is brilliant too and I am happy to have got this far!!! Thank You all for your support xoxoxoIts onward and upwards now!!! (Tom got on brilliantly too and has to go back in 3 years!)

So to take my mind off the scary afternoon I coloured this image before going as needed to keep my mind off the anxiety thoughts.  
I then this afternoon once I came back had a play with my new sewing machine and did the stitching round the sides.  
I hope you like her. I love my Gorjuss Girls and now even have a new bag with Ruby on the swing.
