About Me

Isnt she pretty

Isn’t she pretty

Hi!  My name is Julia.  I’m 42, and I live in suburban East London, UK, with my lovely partner, Stewart, two of his three children, one grandchild and a cat.  I learned to knit a couple of years ago, and ever since then, my creativity has really taken off!

This is my very first blog, and I intend it to be about crafts, life, love, and mental health.

I have suffered with depression since my adolesence, and am only just starting to get the right kind of help from the good old NHS.  Lets see how that goes!

The photo above is of Molly, my ex cat, who disappeared once I moved in with my boyfriend.  He had a dog at the time who sadly died a few months ago.  We have a new cat now called Merlin, and here he is:

Isn’t he lovely!
