Cowart's Common Room
hello everyone, waving bravely

Good morning purple cooers! I've been busy and total rubbish at everything, yes, everything! Especially mothering so I've decided to come home and have a go at blogging again properly. Popped in here to say hello, catch up with old friends and see how everyone is. You all mean so much to me and I'm so pleased you are back here!

Lots has changed for me - new job (now teaching, love it) and my girls and boy are all teenagers now. I've also had a rotten, rotten news about my own health and wanted friendly place to mooch.

Not a good mother is the blog if you are interested, some may remember me from years' back.
love
Ska

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Yes it does get mentioned in whispers in the hallways occasionallyVery Happy
WW dragged me to school after we met at a Trade Fair, I'm an Artist and Craftmaker, and I'm very glad she did now.

Re:
brilliant, this place is full of very crafty people. I used to be a very crafty person but then, like so may others, got drowned in kids n stuff but as I am about to have 6 - 9 months out have dusted off my sewing machine! Yippee!!!

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Hi there, Ska. I'm more recent too but it seems like I've been here for ages if that makes any sense.

Welcome back, anyway, it is always good to return to where you belong.

Withy Brook's Avatar Hi Ska, I always get excited when old friends reappear! I am so sorry about the reason you now have more time, but here is the very place to be when you want healing vibes and loving care. Do you remember Matron? I am usually about to provide a shoulder to cry on.
Our beloved Head Mistress is very busy these days with their photography business and is showing a mass of talent herself. This means that she is not about as much as she used to be - but it won't be long before she discovers you are back!

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Ha of course I've heard your are back - busy I might be but I STILL know what is going on.

Welcome back . . . Very Happy really good to have you 'home' with us. The I have blogged button is still there under announcements.

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar PS not many of us blogging so blog announcements are very empty - easier to let us know here . . .

Re:
Hurray! this feels very nice - I'e been looking around lots of my- specific-cancer forums and although people there are nice it's just not the same. I need general frivolity too. So will keep this page open. xx
withy - I can't remember what we were allocated back then but good to be sharing!

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Welcome back Ska. I often wondered what had become of you. Aren't we all bad parents? I get told occasionally even though my kids are grown up now. One at Uni the other received her SQA letter yesterday (with quite good results if I may say so- much better than her teachers predicted here in Germany)

Am very sorry about your scary health news, but if we are known for anything here on PC, it is frivolity and genuine friendship if the times are tough.

Re:
Cowgirl's Avatar Nice to see you back, Ska. Sending lots of love and purpleness and you will probably get a laugh out of my foray in the genteel craft of knitting.... x
